A new century of Alzheimer's disease research

...ch people would develop the disease over time. One marker is AB. Although no one knows what the normal function of AB is, the Mayo Clinic researchers found that it could be measured in blood, and that levels of both AB40 and AB42 varied in people who developed the disease. What they discovered through thi...

Blood Protein may Hold Key to Why Healthy People Get Heart Attacks

...terol or C-reactive protein, a widely acknowledged marker of inflammation. The study noted that MPO changes low-density-lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol into a harmful oxidized form that cause atherosclerosis and the 'bleach' produced by MPO damages the arteries directly, causing cell death and erosion of th...

The presence of the disease-associated version of ORMDL3 increases the risk of asthma by 60-70 percent, the study suggests. "In ter...

New Blood Vessels can Be Created from Bone Marrow Stem Cells: Study

...ourse of study, the researchers used a fluorescent marker protein and a tissue-specific promoter for alpha-actin, a protein found in muscles that is responsible for their ability to contract and relax, to develop the new method for isolating functional smooth muscle cells from bone marrow. Although the re...

However, the study established that it was nodal status rather than attainment of pathological response that was the most significant determinant of prognosis. When individuals with complete pathological...
