FDA Nanotechnology Task Force takes positive step forward

...clear guidance so there can be reasonable and safe pathways to market for the many potential applications of nanotechnology under FDA’s jurisdiction. Equally important, the report signals FDA’s commitment to a transparent public process for developing its regulatory policies. Public participation will be key...

A new century of Alzheimer's disease research

...mal functioning of the nerve cells, destroying the pathways along which packets of chemical “information” move. Memories cannot be stored or retrieved, and, eventually, the brain cannot control the body. Each year about 4.6 million more people develop Alzheimer’s worldwide, and that number is escalating rapid...

Structure of TB Enzyme Points the Way to New Drugs: Study

...ers said that the new drugs by targeting different pathways than those used by existing antibiotics should side-step various problems with these drugs, specifically their inability to destroy the bacteria in its dormant form, which is one of the reasons that resistance has emerged. The study appears in the ...

Strange Sex Life of Mole-rats may Provide Clues About Human Infertility

...ctively active. Social stress acts through brain pathways that control reproductive hormones which are likely to be similar in both animals and humans, said Dr Faulkes. Social suppression of reproduction in marmoset monkeys is very similar to that in naked mole-rats, and as these are primates the applicat...

Genetic Mutation That Makes Common Cancers Resistant to Drugs Identified

...hway is among the most commonly activated cellular pathways in human cancers and members of this pathway are among the most frequently targeted for new cancer drug discovery efforts. The activation of this pathway results in cancer cell growth and cell survival, according to the background information in a...

The authors also suggest that disruption of homotetramers into homodimers may be sufficient to abrogate the transformation ability of RARA fusion proteins. "These findings not only identify the key e...

New Cancer Therapy in Clinical Trial

Current therapies for type 2 diabetes are o...

A New Monoclonal Antibody Kills Cancer Cells

Based on previous studies showing that some pathways that were previously thought to be active only during fetal liver development, particularly the class III receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) family pathway, became highly active again in the liver of HCC patients, Satdarshan P. Singh Monga, M.D., associa...

Plants Respond to Changing Environment

Publishing in the journal Current Biology, the researchers looked at how plants evolved this ability by looking at the genes involved in the gibberellin signalling pathway in a wide rang...

Boffins Find Evidence for Novel Brain Cell Communication

...of as short circuits linking or cutting across the pathways through which cells normally communicate. Gap junctions are found in many parts of the body, such as the heart and have been most studied in older vertebrates (such as fish) and in invertebrates (such as leeches and crabs). The current study pro...
