Scientists Identify Antibodies That Block Human and Animal SARS Viruses
...eriments on a mouse model to test the neutralizing activity
of the antibodies. The researchers say that the new findings are important because animal strains of the virus may be capable of triggering a future human outbreak. "This study is important because the viral strain that caused the outbreak in peo...
Rosehips may Be an Effective Alternative for Rheumatoid Arthritis
...ening doors, and cutting meat. After six months, activity
levels improved by 20 to 25 percent for those taking LitoZin. The number of joints causing them pain and discomfort fell by 40 percent, but did not change for patients treated conventionally without the rose-hip supplement. Generally, the overall t...
Lost Sleep can Never Be Compensated for
... researchers monitored their brain wave and muscle activity
patterns in order to precisely quantify sleep-wake patterns. The animals compensated for the sleep loss by increasing the depth of sleep after the first day, which is indicative of a homeostatic response. But on the subsequent days of sleep loss, t...
Translating Structure into Function
...e that fits the enzymes active site will block its activity
just what many promising drugs do. The strategy works well for one kind of drug discovery -- finding molecules to fit in the active site and physically block enzyme action. But the research team sought to divine from an enzymes structure just what...

...he new reimbursement rules were implemented, total activity
dropped by nearly 50 per cent to 60,425. Significantly, this was a persistent effect because the number of cycles remained at this lower level in 2005. Prof Nyboe Andersen, of Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen, Denmark, was presenting data on behalf of th...
Humans are Gobbling Up a Quarter of Nature's Resources, Reveals Study
...s. By comparing carbon consumption through human activity
with the amount of carbon consumed overall, the team found that humans were using up to 15.6 trillion kilograms of carbon annually. Almost half was soaked up by growing crops; Seven per cent went up in smoke as fires lit by humans, and the rest was...
Harnessing Immune System Power Heralds Next Era of Cancer Treatment

Smashing Times for Stressed Spaniards
... Pablo, an IT worker aged 32, after undertaking an activity
which allowed him to forget for a brief while "the bank, the lack of free time, and the home" he cannot afford as prices spiral in the city. "I want to wreck a few more," he let slip as he emerged from a cloud of dust, smiling broadly. The eight ...
Nutrition Education Has Proved to Be Futile

has increased in recent weeks with the frequency of volcanic quakes rising and with the crater island showing signs of bulging. The environment and natural resources department said, amid protests from Talisay residents, that the building of viewin...
Insight Into Neural Stem Cells Has Implications For Designing Therapies
...e raises the possibility, he says, that the cells' activity
is regionally modulated in order to regulate the production of different types of neurons. "This may provide a mechanism for the brain to dynamically fine tune the olfactory bulb circuitry, raising a fascinating basic question about neuronal replacem...
EpiCept Accelerates Development of Phase I Clinical Study for Cancer
..." EPC2407 has shown promising vascular targeting activity
with nanomolar potencies of anti-tumor activity
in pre-clinical in vitro and in vivo studies. The molecule has been shown to induce tumor cell apopt...
Scientists Find Single Circuit Channeling Depression in Rats
