Acute Mountain Sickness may Lead to Pulmonary or Cerebral Edema

...se in the prevalence of AMS. The study aimed to characterize the knowledge among high-altitude trekkers regarding symptoms, prevention, and treatment of AMS, and to examine whether this knowledge is translated into practice. 92 percent had heard of AMS prior to their current trip. Overall, awareness of AMS ...

EpiCept Accelerates Development of Phase I Clinical Study for Cancer

...cokinetic profile of the drug. The study will also characterize the pharmacodynamic effects on tumor blood flow and identify early signs of objective anti-tumor response as measured by CT scans, MRI or PET, in these advanced cancer patients with well vascularized solid tumors. Dr. Peter J. Rosen, Medical Direct...

Autoimmune Response in Multiple Sclerosis

...nduction of disease. The authors then went on to characterize the Ac19specific T cells present during the induction, onset, and recovery from disease. They identified two distinct subsets of T cells, or clonotypes, soon after immunization and prior to disease onset: BV8S2/BJ2S7 and BV16/BJ2S5. The BV8S2/BJ2S7...

Genetic Tests Could Help Decide the Right Anti-depressants

...er. With a simple blood test, they will be able to characterize a patients unique genetic profile, determining what biological type of depression the patient has. Thereafter it should be relatively easy to figure out which antidepressant is likely to work best. With hit-or-miss approach gone, doctors may have l...

Gene Therapy for Parkinsons Disease

...lief from the tremors, stiffness and rigidity that characterize the disease. Decades ago, surgeons began to make lesions in parts of the brain involved in the disease, which lessened symptoms. Fetal stem cell surgery was pioneered in Parkinson's patients. And in the past decade, the deep brain stimulation has w...

First Gene Linked to Scoliosis Identified

... the cell, leads to the C and S-shaped curves that characterize scoliosis. "Hopefully, we can now begin to understand the steps by which the gene affects spinal development," says Dr. Anne Bowcock, Professor of Genetics, Medicine, and pediatrics. "If we understand the genetic basis of the condition, we can th...

Highly Effective Method for Screening Drug-resistant Forms of HIV Developed

...ombined, the researchers were able to quantify and characterize hundreds of thousands of HIV variants for drug resistance in a single test. The new screening technique also uncovered four rare, minor drug-resistant mutations in the patient samples of HIV that had gone undetected by standard screening measures. ...

Researchers Discover How Antibiotic Inhibits Bacterial Growth

...to its target in the living cell, but to precisely characterize the mode of binding of the drug to the ribosome. "It was a combined effort of excellent chemists, structural biologists and biochemists," Mankin said. "We now understand much better how the drug works, how it can be improved, and how bacteria can...

Psychosocial Support for Cancer Survivors Needs Strengthening

...nia and co-investigators sought to comprehensively characterize how patients with different types of cancers and other chronic medical conditions use support groups and who uses them. The study team analyzed survey data from 9,187 participants (1,844 with cancer and 4,951 with other chronic health problems). Dr...

Most Pediatric Chemotherapy Mistakes Reach Patients

Laser-based System for Non-invasive Diagnosis of Skin Cancers on the Anvil

...e able to touch a mole with a fiberoptic cable and characterize what is going on inside it. Today, if you visit a dermatologist, he or she will probably see many moles on your body. But the difficulty is trying to figure out which of those, if any, are dangerous," he said. The researchers are now working with J...

A Pratical Tool to Detect Bone Mass Deficiencies in Children With Chronic Diseases

GAB2-A New Alzheimers Gene Identified

...ed more than 500,000 SNPs or genetic variations to characterize and confirm additional LOAD susceptibility genes. The search revealed GAB2. Based on the genetics of this and other neuroscientific findings, researchers suggest the healthy form of the GAB2 gene may protect brain cells from developing tangles, one...

Michael J. Fox Foundation Awards $710,000 to Understanding of Parkinson's Disease Subtypes

In addition, recommendations on the clinical applications of esophageal reflux testing are presented. Source-Eurekalert RM/V...

Combined Imaging Approach may Be Effective in Diagnosing Some Brain Clots

...ons for certain patients. "If we can more easily characterize the patient’s problem as chronic instead of acute, it could alter the way we prescribe anticoagulation (clot-busting) drugs to treat the symptoms," says Leach. "Further research is needed to see if this can effectively impact patient therapy clinical...

Researchers Discover Gene Essencial to Cerebellum Formation

...f the cerebellum. In order to test their idea, and characterize the new mechanism of cell differentation, the authors used mice with a disactivated gene that codes for the Ptf1a/48 protein, and compared them with mice that express the gene normally. Their conclusions provide new insight into origin of nerve cells...
