No title for the Princess's groom, Chris O'Neill
Chris O'Neill will have to do with being called "Herr O'Neill" in Sweden, as he will get neither a duke nor a prince title after his marriage with Princess Madeleine (set for June 8). He will also remain an American citizen, and will continue his business, according to a press release from the Royal Swedish Court. According to the same, in order to become a member of the royal house the person ought to be a Swedish citizen and not have a responsible position in business life. “This means that Mr. Chris O’Neill, according to these principles, can not carry the title His Royal Highness Prince of Sweden or Duke of Gästrikland and Hälsingland,” the court writes on its homepage.

Protein controls development of cancer
A new scientific report shows that the aggressive forms of cancer in the bladder contain a particular protein called PODXL. This discovery can lead to better medications and opportunities to tailor treatments. “With increased knowledge about this protein we can better determine a patient’s prognosis and see who needs a more aggressive treatment right away, and who can benefit from a milder treatment without risking their lives,” says Karolina Boman, PhD student at Lund University in a press release. Knowledge about the protein makes it possible to determine at an earlier time, who is in risk of a relapse. Around 2,500 Swedes, and 70,000 Americans, annually are affected by bladder cancer, a cancer usually detected early and which can successfully be treated, but over a third of the patients get an aggressive form of bladder cancer that can not be cured. The study was performed on 500 patients who had been treated in Lund, Malmö and Uppsala.
