A new drug for cancer

... tiny blood vessels that feed a tumour, as well as activating the immune system to release chemicals such as interferon and tumor necrosis factor. This will open up a second line of attack, causing the blood vessels to leak and break down. Due to restriction of its blood supply, the tumour will start to wither ...

Prototype Detector detects Anthrax Quickly

...cupants to flee the deadly bacteria, as well as in activating defenses such as anti-anthrax foam dispersal systems. The patent-applied-for detector, in which commercial interest has been expressed, would also aid security people making their rounds to locate point sources of the disease. The technique works b...

Lack of solar radiation causes cancer

...r, but it also prevents many other cancers through activating vitamin D. According to many, UV-B - the solar radiation that causes sunburn// - as a risk factor for melanoma, and other skin cancers. That is generally true, but what is not generally realised is that the reverse may also be the case - that UV-B pr...

New Hair in 15 Days Could Now Be A Possibility Say Researchers

...nsight into the role of ?-catenin as a trigger for activating the normal growth of adult hair follicles. Researchers generated transgenic mice expressing an inactive version of ?-catenin in their skin and hair follicles. Upon topical treatment of the mice with a chemical called 4-OHT, the exogenous ?-catenin ...

Reason for diabetes drug causing edema discovered

...ilure from the drug as side effects. TZD works by activating PPAR gamma receptor that helps the body to use the insulin to increase metabolism and control blood glucose levels. The research results showed that in mice the drug caused bloating with increase in body weights. This shows that there is fluid reten...

Identified Protein To Inhibit Cell Migration

...hat CIB1 inhibits cell migration by binding to and activating a protein called PAK1, or p21-activated kinase, in cancer cells. When CIB1 activates PAK1, this kinase then inhibits cell migration by adding a phosphate group to a host of other proteins in the cell. Thus, the study suggests that CIB1 may be a lik...

Protein acts as "Master Switch" that cuts off cells' Cancer-Growth machinery

...ime comes to die, this protein helps them do so by activating their built-in self-destruct program. But, when these cells start becoming cancerous, they somehow lose CUBGP2 and this leads to build up of large amounts of an enzyme known as Cox-2. Cox-2 is the major culprit in arthritis and headache. Aspirin-like...

Recent Study On Rats May Lead To Future Robotics

...on how brain controls movement say researchers. By activating a single brain cell in a rat can make its whiskers twitch, a discovery researchers say //could help decipher how the brain controls movement. Eventually this could help scientists develop devices paralyzed people could control, such as robotic arms. ...

Influence of Celebrities on Breast Cancer Awareness

...owing the disease should not mislead the public by activating the panic button regarding the disease prevention. The first celebrity to speak out was Betty Ford, wife of president Gerald Ford, who did a great deal to raise awareness of breast cancer in 1974, and detection rates rose immediately in a phenomenon ...

Brain Chemical Identified For Drug Dependent Behavior

... drug-associated cues was reinstated by chemically activating these cells and orexin production. These data suggest that this brain system may be involved in the development of drug craving that can perpetuate both addiction and relapse. This neural system may be activated by environmental cues that cause add...

Nanotechnology Revolution To Be Spearheaded By European Union

...s at an affordable cost. Nanotechnology works by activating small and tiny particles present in the body, it activates proteins, DNA, Viruses and antibodies and induces them to fight against the diseases. Nanoparticles can go "everywhere in the body -- they can overcome barriers to hit places that conventiona...

An answer to obesity: weight control protein

The current study shows that SH2-B also regulates energy balance and body weight by enhancing leptin sensitivity in animals, Rui said. Further examination found that the animals lacking SH2-B ate nearly twice as ...

Stimulus evaluation is also thought to be immediate, unintentional and linked to behavioral responses. Andy P. Field, in an article to be published in Behaviour Research and Therapy, writes that childhood is undoubte...

Researchers Identify Sipa 1 Gene, Responsible For Cancer Metastasis

...is a mitogen inducidble gene that encodes a GTPase activating protein (GAP) that negatively regulates RAP1 and RAP2 GTPases. Human SIPA1 has recently been found to interact with the water channel aquaporin 2 (AQP2), by its PDZ domain, so the authors used AQP2 to see if the Alanine to threonine substitution affe...

New anti-aging molecule could be coming up in way

...en species. The protein has been found to act by activating an enzyme called manganese superoxide dismutase (found in the mitochondria of the cell), which hydrolyses the harmful superoxide to less harmful hydrogen peroxide. Free radicals are chemical entities that contain free electrons and because they con...

In Multiple Sclerosis the immune cells produces an immune response against the myelin sheath that surrounds nerve fibers in the brain and spinal cord and enables them to transmit impulses. MS shows a pattern...

Paralyzed Patients Can Be Trained To Walk With Robotic Treadmill

Additionally, diagnostic tests such as magnetic resonance imaging can be used in predicting the outcome of a targeted treatment. Several patients who were trained using the Robotic Treadmill reported a...

Severe Gum Disease Triples Heart Disease Risk

...nk up to heart disease is the presence of platelet activating factor acetylhydrolase (PAF-AH), which is an enzyme that is associated with small-dense LDL. This enzyme could be responsible for lowering the atherogenic effects of LDL. In severe periodontitis this association between LDL-associated PAF-AH activity...
