Genetics helps in attacking cancer

...ng at the effect of the drug on the genes that are activated in cancer. They find that specific genes and cellular pathways are affected by ceflatonin. These experiments have been done in human colon cancer cells and on tumour growth// and gene expression in cancer cells grown in mice. The experiments show ho...

Sniff out flatulence

...object called a Toot Trapper, a cushion covered in activated charcoal, reduced the smell of flatulence to almost unnoticeable levels. The scientists from Minneapolis Veterans' Affairs Medical Centre fed 16 healthy people pinto beans and lactulose and waited for the results. The beans, along with broccoli, ca...

Genes for Vision discovered

...se affected.// Photoreceptors - cones, which are activated by light, and rods, which operate only at night - are susceptible to a wide variety of inherited diseases, suchas retinitis pigmentosa and cone-rod dystrophy. The newly identified gene set, which is reported in the journal Cell, could lead to the ide...

Light therapy devotes new hope in advanced lung cancer

...aken up preferentially by cancer cells. It is then activated by exposing the tissue to a light beam. This causes production of a form of oxygen that kills cancer cells. In this trial, the drug was given prior to surgery and the light applied during the operation. More than half of the patients treated in thi...

Novel Anti-Neutrophilic Effect produced by Salmeterol in mild asthma patients

...+) T-lymphocytes, (CD4+) T-helper cells, (CD45RO+) activated T-helper cells and eosinophils in the biopsy samples were significantly reduced with fluticasone propionate, compared with placebo. Fluticasone propionate also reduced the percentage of eosinophils and soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1 in ser...

Treatment for cholesterol-related illnesses likely with the discovery of receptor in mice

...h the PXR receptors in humans is that they are not activated by the metabolites to trigger an effective response and clear away the cholesterol. The study suggested that harnessing PXR could benefit people with high cholesterol worldwide, apart from those patients suffering from CTX. They further added that C...

Stroke victims have new hope with activated protein C

...niversity of Rochester, New York suggests that the activated protein C (APC), a protein with anti-inflammatory and anti-coagulant properties,which until now is being used to treat septic infections, may also help reduce the damage caused by stroke. Researchers who conducted the study on mice found that APC cou...

Scientists locate key hormone involved in appetite control

...rmone on the brain and have shown that the hormone activated the specialized neurons in the hypothalamus involved in weight regulation. Ghrelin is a hormone produced in the stomach with the ability to stimulate feeding when introduced to specialized weight regulating brain cells called neuropeptide Y neurons. ...

Enzyme help destroy cancer cell

Tumors cannot survive without oxygen and nutrient supply. While it was thought that damage to the DNA in the nuclei of tumor cells// was the only way that radiation...

New target for antidiabetic agents identified

...inding to Akt, TRB3 prevents the enzyme from being activated by insulin, leading to increased glucose output from the liver. Elevated hepatic levels of TRB3 RNA and protein were identified in diabetic mice compared with wild-type mice, the authors report. Hepatic overexpression of TRB3 was associated with hyp...

Lead study author Ronald DePinho, M.D., from Dana-Farber, explains: "There is a finite number of grains of sand that are released in a metered way. Similarly, a woman's eggs are gradually released over...

Protein said to Improve Muscle Loss

...lls respond when a certain protein called Notch is activated by another protein called Delta. Researchers found that young, middle-aged, and older mice had the same number of satellite cells in their muscles, which contained equal amounts of Notch. They say "It doesn't seem as if there's anything wrong with ...

Genes Found To Help Leukemia Treatment

... Researchers say they also found some of the genes activated differently between the high-risk and intermediate-risk groups that were not previously known to be involved in acute myeloid leukemia. Studying these genes and their proteins could lead to new treatments for the disease, investigators conclude....

New Findings for Repeated Miscarriages
