Exposure To Artificial Light Could Be Cancerous

...hers that being exposed to too much light at night disrupts crucial hormones and raises the chance of developing breast tumours //. Women particularly those who work night shifts like nurses and airhostesses are considered to be of particularly risk. For the first time now scientists from the American Natio...

Autoimmune Diseases – Newer Preventive Measure

...roper iNKT cell development. A defective Aire gene disrupts this natural nurturing relationship by disrupting medullary epithelial cell function, leading to insufficient numbers of iNKT cells. ‘Whether or not you develop autoimmune disease to a large degree depends on the balance of these bad T cells that r...

Importance of Gene in Eye Development

...nto neurons during development,’ Pevny said. ‘This disrupts the normal maintenance of the stem cell pool in the eye and disrupts the whole developmental process.’ A complete loss of SOX2 expression in neural retinal progenitor ce...

How To Prevent A Stroke

... a night, rousing to gulp in air in a pattern that disrupts normal sleep. "We know that treating sleep apnea is associated with a reduction of blood pressure," Goldstein said. "And although we don't have direct evidence that treating sleep apnea will reduce stroke risk, the feeling is that it will. But that ...

Long Hours of Sleep Increases the Risk of Parkinson's disease

...because the author says that rotating night shifts disrupts circadian rhythms and may have a wide range of physiologic, psychological and social effects on shift workers. The researchers mainly collected data from the U.S. Nurses' Health Study. He also analyzed the effect of sleep on 84,794 female nurses to s...

Researchers Identify The Cause To Obesity

...pproach that should be further studied is one that disrupts the interaction between leptin and CRP, thereby restoring leptin's ability for signaling. We need to better understand how this interaction works and investigate the underlying mechanisms involved," said Allan Z. Zhao, Ph.D., assistant professor of c...

Anorexia - Overcoming Hunger Pangs Isn’t Just About Will Powe

...e weight. In anorexia, there is a lack of NPY that disrupts the balance of the NPY system, making it easier to starve. It is unclear if reduced NPY levels cause anorexia or if it is a manifestation of the disease itself. Anorexia is currently seen in over 4200 people in NSW, of which females constitute a si...

Enjoy The Winter Season

...k help from a doctor. This kind of disorder, which disrupts one’s life causing sadness and depression, is called the seasonal affective disorder. These people may require treatment to come out of the winter disorder. Therapy like usage of light boxes, which emit strong light, can be helpful. ...

Type 2 Diabetes Is Linked To High-Fat Diet

...ing the enzyme GnT-4a glycosyltransferase (GnT-4a) disrupts insulin production. The experiments point to a mechanistic explanation for why failing pancreatic beta cells don't sense glucose properly and how that can lead to impaired insulin production, said Jamey Marth, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute inve...

Oxytocin Boosts Trust and Reduces Fear.

...s the functioning of amygdale (fear circuitry) and disrupts its relay station as a response to the fear stimuli. Previous analysis of this chemical with the animals proved that it has an important role in complex emotions, social behavior, social recognition, attachments & aggressions. New light have bee...

Novel protein found to enhance effect of Vitamin E and suppress prostate cancer

Researchers have identified a protein that disrupts an important signaling pathway in prostate cancer cells, thereby suppressing the tumor. The protein also enhances the retention of Vitamin E // that limits the proliferation of cancer cells. The researchers of the present study are the first to des...

Radiation oncologist Frank Vicini, M.D., of Beaumont Hospital// in Detroit said that with a new type of treatment ca...

Ceramide can target and kill cancer cells

...nters the tumor cells through the vasculature, and disrupts the mitochondria of the cells. In mice these bundles of ceramide targets and destroys only breast cancer cells, leaving the surrounding cells healthy and functional. The results of the study came up in the new issue of the journal Clinical Cancer Re...

Lithium May help in Alzheimer's Disease

...in mice. The mouse experiments showed that lithium disrupts that modification process. They also showed that lithium disrupts the modification of tau. Currently it is unclear what role tau plays in cellsin the progression of A...

Gene defect linked to dilated cardiomyopathy(DCM)

...ther laboratory tests also showed that this defect disrupts the calcium pump in heart muscle cells. Scientists also found that people with this defect would suffer a chronic malfunction of calcium regulation in their heart muscle. Over time this would lead to heart failure.
