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

...l, it must get many nutrients-proteins, sugars and precursors for DNA-to survive and grow. While it obtains some of these by digesting the red blood cell's hemoglobin, it must get the rest from outside the cell. The parasite creates tiny channels in the red blood cell membrane, through which it can absorb nutri...

Lecithin lowers cholesterol absorption in body

Koo anticipates that regulatory barriers to such development will be low.Koo says people with normal cholesterol and no family history of cardiovascular disease shoul...

Diabetes could become an epidemic

...sulin resistance and glucose intolerance which are precursors of type two diabetes. There are differing views as to how the figures will grow over the coming years. Currently 2% of the population has diabetes, of which 90 to 95pc have type two diabetes. There is a higher incidence of diabetes, from 3pc to 5pc,...

Stem cells form blood vessels

...o develop into the various types of cells that are precursors to mature tissue. From this colony, the researchers extracted cells that were following a linage that would lead to mature endothelial cells. These were further cultured and some eventually formed primitive vascular structures. Some of the cells wer...

Aspirin reduces skin cancer Risk

...aspirin had a reduced number of sunspots which are precursors to skin cancer//. The study was published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology. Aspirin is a cyto-oxygenase (COX) enzyme inhibitor, which suppresses the activity of this enzyme and its expression. The COX gene is gene coded which i...

Anemia from Malaria Linked to a Protein MIF

...ritis or some cancers. Using immature blood cell precursors grown in a dish, the research team showed that adding MIF to the cells decreases both the final number and maturity of red blood cells. The researchers believe this effect can lead to anemia. When infected with plasmodium, mice genetically engineer...
