Brain Pathway for Depression Revealed

... dye imaging for this model. This technique allows intact brain circuits to be viewed in real time, enabling the researchers to watch living neurons in action, across entire brain networks. The system uses a fluorescent dye, sensitive to brain circuit activity, which the researchers introduce into the ani...

Scientists Develop Insulin Pill

...om being digested by stomach acids, and carries it intact into the small intestine. Once the capsule has reached the small intestine, it is dissolved and releases a mixture of insulin and other materials that enhance the absorption of the insulin through the intestinal wall. Thereafter, the insulin is tra...

Northern Forests Less Effective Than Tropical Forests in Reducing Global Warming

Vaginal Lubricants can Reduce Cervical Cancer Risk

...vical cancer," Walker said. The study noted that intact cells in the genital tract lining were HPV resistant and would not bind to the virus. "The crucial step for infection seems to be the virus binding to the basement membrane that underlies these cells," Schiller said....

Our Ancestors Possessed Much Smaller Brains Than It was Thought

... Elwyn Simons identified the second and the most intact cranium found till date of the Aegyptopithecus zeuxis and subjected it to micro CT scanning to calculate the approximate dimensions of the brain encased inside the cranium. Based on previous fossils collected at the same dig site in a quarry outsid...

Students Devise Oral Quick-dissolve Strips for Rotavirus Vaccine

...d to devise a protective coating that would remain intact when exposed to stomach acid but would dissolve in the chemically neutral environment of the small intestine. Through extensive research and testing, the students solved these problems. They refined a room-temperature production and drying process...

Recovery from Spinal Cord Injury can Be Predicted Using MRI

...n 51 patients, and 22 patients were neurologically intact upon admission. One patient could not be classified. The majority of the patients had been injured in motor vehicle accidents. MRI exams were obtained within 24 to 48 hours of injury. The research team studied three measurable imaging parameters: m...

Sadie Frost Takes a Swing on the Trapeze to Keep in Shape

'Trapeze is good for your confidence and amazing for your body but I also wanted to do something that pushed me,' the Daily Express quoted Frost, as saying. Frost also claimed that she is no stranger to adventure sports and is a fan of pole dan...

Dartmouth Professor Makes Case for Ethically Universal Stem Cell Lines

...of deriving hESCs that either leave the blastocyst intact and unharmed or avoid the use of normal blastocysts in the first place. The paper explains the science behind the six approaches and describes the hurdles that must be overcome in making them useful in future stem cell research. Even though none o...

Different Approach Needed to Protect Brains of Premature Babies

...eps all the connections, structures and cell types intact and in their proper relationship. Our ability to observe these connections at the microscopic level provides a new window for understanding perinatal brain injury.” To probe how the brain's response to injury changes, researchers took slices from ...

Promoting Circumcision to Prevent HIV is Misguided and Will Backfire: ICGI

...sed men, with one-fourth the penile sensitivity as intact men, might not wear condoms, which further desensitize the penis. If such circumcision programs are to be funded at the expense of other programs, such as the "zero grazing" campaign in Uganda, the result will be an even greater increase in the ra...

A Novel Treatment for KSHV-infected Lymphomas

...poptosis. Majority of the PELs appear to have an intact TP53 gene suggesting that genetic alterations are not selected for during PEL tumorigenesis. The results of this study demonstrate binding of the KSHV latency associated antigen LANA to both p53 and MDM2, and that the MDM2 inhibitor Nutlin-3a disrupt...

Targeting SOCS-3 can Control Obesity

... portions of the weight regulation system remained intact and in fact became more responsive, thereby suggesting that arcuate nucleus function is the point of breakdown during leptin deficiency. Finally the research highlighted a key gene called SOCS-3 involved in leptin deficiency. By targeting the gene ...

MRI Contrast Agent Linked to Complication in Renal Patients

Dr. Preethi Yerram and colleagues of University of Missouri report on another dialysis patient who developed NSF—and raise hope regarding a possibly effective treatment. The patient developed stiffness, pain, and other symptoms of ...

Stem Cells In Brain Have Potential For Sensing Damage And To Repair

...lowing the Numb protein they synthesized to remain intact and some neural stem cells had continued to function. As a response to the damage sensed in the region, these cells had, mediated and rebuilt the ventricular wall lining and succeeded in establishing a modified neural stem cell environment. The s...

A wide range of academic, governmental, and private organizations came together to make and implement plans for the Katrina Clinic. A key first step was the creation of a unified command and control system to direct and coordina...

Virus Can Mutate lethally With Help Of Carbohydrates
