Gene Therapy shows promise in treating Hemophilia

...s of the treatment of hemophilia. This disease is genetically transmitted and is characterised by excessive bleeding. Researchers belive this study could some day be applied to treat other diseases such as diabetes. For thousands of hemophiliacs around the world, this treatment using gene therapy will come as...

WORM! WORM! all the way

...edicted some day scientists would create organisms genetically engineered to produce vaccines and drugs to treat IBD and other diseases. Weinstock said even genetically engineered helminths are a possibility. But doctors face at least two potential hurdles before prob...

New FDA Approved Drug NATRECOR For Heart Failure Patients

The US government has approved a genetically engineered drug called NATRECOR to ease the breathing of hospitalized congestive heart failure patients. Congestive heart failure is a condition // in which the heart can't pump enough blood to meet the needs of the body's other organs. Most of the...

Cancer Inheritance

...d him to a very different conclusions; cancers are genetically influenced; rare cancers are more common cancers; and cancers with an early onset are more likely to be inherited than those that develop later in life....

Tomatoes for the heart

A genetically modified tomato which could make for more heart-friendly products has been developed by European scientists. Martine Verhoeyen of Unilever Research in the UK and colleagues, describe how they boosted the production of rutin, a compound found in the...

Humour inherited

... or extroverted are believed to be at least partly genetically determined - so researchers presumed the same applied to our sense of humour. The team asked 71 pairs of identical twins and 56 pairs of fraternal twins, to go into separate rooms and rate five cartoons on a scale of 0 to 10.// A zero deemed the car...

Drugs disrupt formation of blood vessels

...ound in human tumours. Mice used in the study were genetically engineered to produce a form of cancer of the pancreas. The scientists tested drugs to see if they could stop the signals that are emitted to trigger the formation of the blood vessels that fuel the growth of tumours. Four compounds, known as AGM-1...

UV Radiation induces Melanoma

...thesda, Maryland exposed mice, whose skin had been genetically engineered to mimic human skin, to high doses of ultraviolet (UV) rays. The results showed that young mice went on to develop melanoma - the most serious form of skin cancer - in adulthood. A single dose of UV radiation was enough to induce melanom...

E. coli strains resistant to a common antibiotic

...ation. // The new research found that a single, genetically identical strain was responsible for outbreaks of urinary tract infections among women in California, Michigan and Minnesota. Because the germs are exactly the same, investigators assume they came from the same source, and the most likely such source...

Alcohol within the body

...liver. Dr Diehl's team tested the theory on mice genetically engineered to be obese. The mice were fed on a diet that did not contain alcohol, and breath samples were taken as they aged. Obesity-related fatty liver disorder usually develops in older animals and people. The scientists found that older obese mic...

Genetic disorder related with sleep patterns

...his is the first time that anyone has identified a genetically inherited trait that involves the expression and control of the circadian rhythm in humans. That's really critical." He added that finding the key to different patterns of circadian rhythm could help researchers to discover their role in jet lag, sea...

A new study surpasses Gene Therapy Hurdle

...g the new system, he said, it would be possible to genetically modify the APCs so, for instance, the immune system was less likely to attack a transplanted organ. The "holy grail" of gene therapy has been to find ways of getting genes into specific tissues, without putting them into others where they're not wan...

Organs made from cloned embryos

...s hope eventually to construct new organs that are genetically identical to the recipient's own body. This would eliminate the need for ordinary transplants and avoid the use of drugs to prevent rejection of the new organ....

WBC linked with periodontitis

...e scientists showed that at six weeks of age the// genetically engineered mice had lost 27 percent of their alveolar bone whereas the normal mice had no bone loss. The loss of alveolar bone, which anchors teeth in place, is an indication of periodontitis. The scientists also supplied evidence that bacteria are...

Surgery-Rigged pulley helps patients

...ow to pair this grow-your-own-new-bone method with genetically engineered drugs to make that bone grow faster. Surgeons have long lengthened leg bones by breaking them, pulling them apart and letting the body grow new bone - just as it would if you'd naturally broken your leg. Several years ago, a New York phys...

Pig cloning for organs

...ict it will be only a matter of months before they genetically engineer piglets without either copy of the GATA1 gene. The next step will be to test the organs by transplanting them into non-human primates. "We think if everything is successful with what we think are the major issues, in two to three years we'll...

Leptin linked to Blood Clots

...man looked at a group of overweight mice that were genetically engineered to lack the gene needed to produce leptin. He found they took an average of 70 minutes to clot, almost twice as long as normal mice who clotted at 40 minutes. Blood clotting capabilities were tested on another group of mice missing the ge...

DNA of deceased ones stored in Funeral Homes

According to Bernard Naegele, president of Cincinnati-based DNA Analysis Inc., the genetic material could also be used in gene therapy, a process by which doctors would replace an existing, d...

Stem Cells Have Few Mutations

... the mouse embryonic stem cells were actually more genetically stable than some adult cells. Jay A. Tischfield, a researcher at Rutgers University and a co-author of the study, everybody has assumed that the embryonic stem cell had a mutation rate, we show that it is actually lower than what you find in the adul...
