WE HAVE A MATCH Using the collagen extracted from the T. rex?s thighbone, paleontologists determined a link in the collagen material found in the bone and that of a modern-day chicken. Next time you order fried chicken, consider this: Beneath that crispy skin, you may find a link to the heart of history's most terrifying beast.

Denise Mercer loves to laugh. In fact, there's nothing that the Annapolis legal assistant likes better than to get out on a sailboat with her husband, cook up a pot of crabs, sit out in the sun and crack up laughing all day. Sounds like the good life, right? Maybe for Mercer, but certainly not for her face. All that sunshine and happiness took a toll on Mercer, who one day about three years ago looked in the mirror and wondered, "Who is that old woman?" "I especially don't like the laugh lines," said Mercer, who won't tell her age. "And I kinda miss the fullness I had in my face."

A Food and Drug Administration advisory panel has endorsed competing injectable gels that combat facial wrinkles, smoothing the way for a big marketing showdown. The panel recommended Friday that the FDA approve Restylane by Medicis Pharmaceutical Corp. and Hylaform by Inamed Corp., collagen alternatives available in Europe, Canada and Mexico. The FDA typically follows its experts' advice. The gels use hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the skin, to plump out creases and smooth facial scars.

This year's big archaeological discovery: Long before Elmer's cornered the market, neolithic humans were making glue -- at least 8,000 years ago.Archaeologists have discovered a cache of glue in an Israeli cave near the Dead Sea known as Nahal Hemar. It wasn't exactly Super Glue, but it was strong enough to keep a stone ax from flying into pieces.The glue was made from collagen, a fibrous protein found in skin, bone, sinews and cartilage. Archaeologists found it lining baskets, decorating skulls and holding Stone Age tools together.

Secretary of State-designate Condoleezza Rice took a day off from work last week to be treated at Georgetown University Hospital for what news organizations described as minor surgery. In fact, Rice, 50, President Bush's national security adviser, underwent a surgical procedure to treat noncancerous tumors of the uterus. These tumors, called fibroids, are one of the largest health issues facing American women today, with nearly half of all women older than 35 afflicted. While the tumors are almost always noncancerous, they range in severity from hardly noticeable to very painful.
