Gene Therapy Destroys Pancreatic Cancer Cells

...led by Dr. Paul B. Fisher, a professor of clinical pathology at Columbia. Researchers were interested in using a tumor-stopping protein from a newly discovered gene known as mda-7, which has been found effective in destroying other types of cancer cells. This killed the pancreatic cancer cells in the lab after...

Early Warning System For Breast Cancer

...thor Celina Kleer, M.D., an assistant professor of pathology at the U-M Medical School who specializes in breast cancer. “While more research is needed before clinical testing can begin, we hope it will help identify early-stage cancer that could be vulnerable to aggressive treatment, perhaps with drugs that t...

Germs to blame for bad breath

...Israel Kleinberg, chairman of the oral biology and pathology department at the State University of New York at Stony Brook's dental school suggested that environmental differences could also be the reason for the different types of bacteria in the mouth.

Hope for Babies Born With Spinal Muscular Atrophy

...disabilities, they do score well on IQ tests. The pathology of SMA is similar to an adult disease called ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease. The drug riluzole slows the progression of ALS, and a small study shows it may do the same for babies with SMA. Of the 10 babies in the trial, three received a placebo. All d...

MRI for distinguishing between dementia and Alzheimer’s diseas

...ementia is usually faster than Alzheimer’s and the pathology of the disease is different as well, the new scanning technique will help the physicians make an early diagnosis based on the non-invasive scan images. Brain blood flow is usually measured by using positron emission tomography or single proton emiss...

Cure For Deafness Leads Scientist To Find How Fishes Can Hear And Hum Sounds At Same Time

...nd what a mammal does." "Hearing loss is a major pathology that humans deal with," said Bass. "And we don't understand that mechanism very well. Observing what these neurons do may offer insights into what leads to hearing deficits." Only a few fish vocalize, but male plainfin midshipman fish hum to attrac...

Malignant Mesothelioma – A New Genetic Revelatio

...eported that mesothelioma has an unusual molecular pathology with loss of tumour suppressor genes being the predominant pattern of lesions, especially the P16INK4A, and P14ARF, and NF2 genes, rather than the more common p53 and Rb tumour suppressor genes. In a previous report from earlier this month from the...

Head Size Risks for Alzheimer's

...head circumference probably does not influence the pathology (the underlying biological damage) of Alzheimer's, but is a mitigating factor in the development of symptoms. While brain growth is controlled in part by genetics, it also may be influenced by nutrition, infection, family size, and birth order. This...

Researchers Develop Device For Detecting Atherosclerotic Plaques

...as of animals, with results compared to those from pathology studies. Laser-induced fluorescence spectroscopy is based on the fact that when molecules in cells are stimulated by light, they respond by becoming excited and re-emitting light of varying colors. Just as a prism splits white light into a full spec...

Nanocells cancer combination therapy acts as chemotherapy as well as anti-angiogenic drug

.... Sasisekharan and his team used the difference in pathology of blood vessels in the tumour and the normal organs to selectively deliver the drugs. Once inside the tumour, the nanocell's outer balloon disintegrates and the anti-angiogenesis drug brings about the blood vessel collapse, shrinkage and shut down...

Active Lifestyle Helps To Slowdown Illness In Alzheimer's Patients

...years. Similarly, genetic studies to pinpoint the pathology of Alzheimer's disease has established that genes in 10 percent of cases can be blamed for the occurrence, but "in the bulk of cases there is no such evidence", said Ravindranath. A source of some satisfaction for neurologists like K.S. Anand, who h...

Younger People More Susceptible To Gum Disease

...me. Although most people eventually will develop pathology with wisdom teeth, periodontal disease, pericoronitis or tooth decay, it is too early to recommend strongly that everyone has their wisdom teeth removed. It is smart to have wisdom teeth evaluated before age 25, but because one quarter of people won'...

Vaginal atrophy drug Ospemifene found effective in breast cancer Prevention

...as led by Jeffrey P. Gregg, Associate professor of pathology and laboratory medicine at UC Davis, where they reported that Tamoxifen and Ospemifene both inhibited the growth and progression of pre-malignant breast lesions that closely resemble human ductal carcinomas in situ in mouse model. Ospemifene is a S...

Protein Linking Vitamin E And Prostate Cancer
