Probiotic Drinks can Stave Off Hospital Infection
...n the gut. When this happens, C. diff bacteria can multiply
and cause symptoms such as diarrhoea and fever. Because C. diff infections are usually caused by antibiotics, most cases usually happen in a healthcare environment such as a hospital or care home. Older people are most at risk from infection, with ...
Liver Regeneration may Be Simpler Than Previously Thought
... actually be only due to an increase in cells that multiply
through regular cell divisions, a process called hyperplasia. The new results may also have important medical implications. Transcription factors are known to be more difficult to manipulate than the other identified proteins. Since the transcrip...

Gene Study Offers Hope of Potent Anti-cancer Drugs
... the human genome. These mutations cause a cell to multiply
uncontrollably to form a tumor that can then spread to other parts of the body. Scientists have identified about 350 genes that have been implicated in the development of different cancers but, until now, have not had a clear idea about how many mu...

... the human genome. These mutations cause a cell to multiply
uncontrollably to form a tumor that can then spread to other parts of the body. The next stage is to try to assess whether these mutations were directly involved in "driving" cancer development, or whether they were harmless "passenger" mutations, ...

...tibodies. Genetic aberrations can cause B cells to multiply
uncontrollably, causing B cell lymphomas. Dr. Melnick’s study focused on a gene called BCL6. The protein it codes for is a transcriptional repressor, which means that it can shut off the functioning of genes in B cells and other cells of the immune...
RNAi Shows Promise in Gene Therapy
...ff, viruses such as hepatitis or HIV are unable to multiply
and cause disease. In early RNAi experiments, researchers saw some hints that the technique could induce an immune reaction or switch off the wrong gene or genes. In work last year, Kay confirmed those findings but also showed a possible way around...
