Laboratory Testing Can Identify Risk of Pre-Term Labor and Delivery

...he choriodecidual junction, fFN is responsible for cellular adhesions. The level of fFN in the woman's cervicovaginal secretions is highly associated with pre-term labor and pre-term delivery. The fFN immunoassay detects concentrations of fetal fibronectin protein in cervicovaginal fluids; the presence of mor...

Evidence Links Protein Damage to Neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's

Nitric oxide involved in high blood pressure

...ed free radicals and reactive oxygen species cause cellular damage and inactivate nitric oxide, causing blood pressure to keep rising. As blood pressure continues to rise, more nitric oxide is inactivated, causing pressure to rise even higher. According to researchers, while the initial causes of high blood...

Drug abuse leads to long standing changes in the brain

"These findings show a direct relationship between changes in brain chemistry in methamphetamine abusers and functional changes in behavior," says Dr. Alan I. Leshner, director of the National Institute on Dr...

Genetics helps in attacking cancer

Implication of virus in colon cancer

...how human cytomegalovirus (CMV) can disrupt normal cellular processes, leading to malignant growth, especially in the context of colon cancer. Then the researchers went on to test colon tumour samples for CMV. They looked at colorectal polyp tissue, adenocarcinoma (a type of colon cancer) and adjacent cells. ...

New AIDS vaccine may be in the offing

...loaded DC vaccines to generate strong HIV-specific cellular and antibody immunities may result in long-term immunological control of chronic HIV disease. However, a major question which needs to be resolved is that of how long the vaccine-stimulated immune responses will keep the AIDS virus under control....

Stroke victims have new hope with activated protein C

... apoptosis following stroke. APC works through two cellular receptors, called endothelial protein C receptor and protease-activated receptor 1, to reduce the level of p53 in damaged cells by 75 per cent. APC also increases anti-apoptotic signals that instruct cells to survive. Researchers concluded that the c...
