Scientists Activate New Cancer Drug Using Light and Oxygen

... works to produce a reactive form of oxygen, which destroys only the cells that have been marked by the cancer-fighting drug, thereby sparing other normal healthy neighboring cells. The process really is about controlling the drugs ability to produce this reactive form of oxygen, explains Dr. Zheng. For th...

Study Refutes Theory on HIV's Effect on White Blood Cells

...refore theyve been unable to fully explain why HIV destroys the bodys supply of these cells at such a slow rate," said Jaroslav Stark, Professor of Mathematics at Imperial College London. "Our new interdisciplinary research has thrown serious doubt on one popular theory of how HIV affects these cells, and m...

Vaccine Hope for Malaria

Stem Cells Provide New Tool for Studying Disease and Identifying ALS Drugs

...a fatal neurodegenerative disease that selectively destroys motor neurons, messenger cells responsible for virtually all voluntary movement. Until now, scientists have not known whether motor neurons in ALS die because of a problem within the cell—or from outside the cell. The study by Eggan's group describ...

Arsenic in Chicken Feed may Cause Health Complications

The same compound under certain anaerobic conditions gets transformed into toxic forms of arsenic. Arsenic is known to cause cancer of the lu...

Stem Cell Therapy Shows Promise for Rescuing Deteriorating Vision

...neration, an age-related affliction that gradually destroys central vision, is a scourge of old age, robbing people of the ability to read, recognize faces and live independently. The finding that the brain cells protected the cells in the eye was a surprise, according to Raymond D. Lund, an author of the ...
