Stress Could Have A Notable Effect In Quickening The Progression Of Alzheimer's disease

... The researchers in their study with genetically modified mice, found that when young animals were injected for just seven days with dexamethasone, a glucocorticoid similar to the body’s stress hormones, the levels of the protein beta-amyloid in the brain increased by 60 percent. When beta-amyloid productio...

... research by funding them. They explained that a modified herpes simplex virus, when injected directly into the tumour, enters only the cancer cells and kills them. They however found that that within hours of the injection, infection-fighting immune cells are collected into the tumour to attack the virus, ...

Stroke Rehabilitation Through Modified Video Games

Novel test for diagnosis of breast cancer

... Any successive surgical sample taken would have a modified gene expression profile. A recent study proves the above-mentioned statement. It involves 22 women with breast cancer. It was seen that the expression of 4 specific genes known to be involved in breast cancer development was noticeably increased in...

The ailment is caused by a single defective gene that fails to produce adequate levels of an enzyme that normally breaks down the carbo...

Mice Model for Parkinson's disease Shows Promise

Previous studies in the field have been based on researchers delivering neurotoxic substances to kill the dopamine neurons. In the new mice, however, mice develop disease slowly in adulthood, like human...

Computational Model Reveals Working of AZT in Body
