Laboratory Testing Can Identify Risk of Pre-Term Labor and Delivery

...(fFN).A glycoprotein that is secreted by the fetal membrane and found in the choriodecidual junction, fFN is responsible for cellular adhesions. The level of fFN in the woman's cervicovaginal secretions is highly associated with pre-term labor and pre-term delivery. The fFN immunoassay detects concentrations ...

Feeding channel created by malaria parasite - a new target for malaria treatments

...tes the channels by changing a protein in the cell membrane or by trafficking a new protein made in the malaria parasite to the cell membrane for subsequent icorporation. With this information, researchers may be better able to develop drugs ...

Action of nerve cells

...l depends on the number of neurotransmitter filled membrane balloons released by each neuron.So the strength of memory depends on how well the UNC-13 protein helps to gather up the neurotransmitter filled balloons and release them from one cell to another, he stated. Jorgensen said the research was aimed ...

Drugs to stop burgeon of HIV

...opies of themselves, the virus goes to the surface membrane and wraps it around themselves before 'popping' off.// In 1996 the researchers showed that a protein created by HIV called Vpu formed ion channels in fatty membranes around cells. Ion channels act as 'gates' for ions to pass in and out of the cell."...

Attacking therapy with electricity

... applied it opens up microscopic pores in the cell membrane so that drug molecules can enter into the cell. When the pulse is stopped, the holes close up again so the drug stays inside. Research so far has applied electroporation to cancer chemotherapy, the delivery of DNA for gene therapy, and to the deliv...

Bypass Surgery & Pleural Effusion

... and the chest wall, covered by a thin transparent membrane called the pleura. The study indicated that almost 55% had a pleural effusion one month after the bypass surgery. Around 15 per cent of cases had an effusion that occupied more than 25 per cent of one side of the chest while in most of cases the ef...

Inflammation Linked to Colon Cancer

...d these free radicals can damage cells -- the cell membrane and the DNA." The laboratory study involved a type of DNA damage caused by a product of the COX-2 enzyme, which is known to play a role in inflammation and is blocked by aspirin and other drugs known as COX-2 inhibitors. Researchers took the damaged...

Mouth Infection better handled with new discovery

Biomarker for prostate cancer may be separated for treatment

... The researchers had placed the prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) at a new location for the immunotherapy that is carried by the blood, to reach the biomarker. This had been done by a chemotherapy agent, which destroys the microtubules. Cancer of the prostate glands is one of the deadlier cancers th...

New insight for neuro-degenerative diseases discovered

Ten women who had recovered from anorexia nervosa for more than a year were studied, as were 12 normal female subjects. Because malnourishment affects brain chemistry, the researchers did not include acutely ill women in their stu...

...reaction generally took place as the sperm sheds a membrane as it "docked" with the egg. "If the acrosome reaction occurs before a sperm reaches an egg, then fertilisation is unable to take place because the sperm has lost special docking molecules that allow it to bind to the egg," she said. The findings...
