Liver Cancer More Prevalent in Males

Production of a protein that promotes inflammation appears to be linked to the higher incidence of liver cancer in men than in women , researchers at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine have determined in mouse studies. Their discovery that female mice p...

Specific Protein is Instrumental in Myelination

...of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) protein promotes both myelination and remyelination (creation and r...ion (through genetic manipulation) of EGFR protein promotes functional recovery of neural fibers (demonstrated through the conduction of electrical impulses). ...

Cytokine IL6 as a New Chemotherapeutic Target for Ras-driven Cancers

...t cell types. The scientists then showed that IL6 promotes tumorigenesis by encouraging new blood vessel growth. Dr. Counter and colleagues were able to successfully fight tumor formation in a preclinical model by suppressing IL6 activity. While further research is needed to determine the effectiveness of I...

Sensible Diet, Exercise and Weight Control Increases Longevity

...eeded in the body to control blood glucose, and it promotes growth, survival and insulin secretion from pancreatic beta cells, he added. In earlier work, the researchers had found that knocking out both copies of the Irs2 gene in mice reduces brain growth and produces diabetes due to pancreatic beta cell f...

Obesity, a Risk Factor for Developing Multiple Myeloma

... a cell signal, called interleukin-6 (IL-6), which promotes the immune systems inflammation response. In obese people, this can cause an overproduction of IL-6, which in turn creates a cellular environment that sustains multiple myeloma. "The IL-6 chemical pathway is one possible way obesity could influenc...

New Genetic Studies Carried Out in Cancer Therapy

...that specific disruption of the mitotic checkpoint promotes paclitaxel resistance and that chromosomal numerical heterogeneity may be a useful predictor of paclitaxel resistance in some cancers. Ceramide metabolism was identified as a critical regulator of sensitivity to a wide range of chemotherapeutic dru...

Pneumonia Patients Develop Heart Risks

...a type of a chemical signal called a cytokine that promotes the formation of blood clots and that decreases the efficiency of the heart. Physicians who take care of patients with pneumonia or with acute coronary syndromes need to be aware of the possible concurrence of the two diseases in an individual pati...

Parkinsons Disease Protein Pathway Identified

... normally protects cells from oxidative stress and promotes cell survival by regulating function of the protein TRAP1. When PINK1 is mutated, however, the protective TRAP1 pathway is disrupted, leading to mitochondrial damage. Other scientists recently have linked early onset Parkinson disease to mutations ...

Protein Pathway Involved in Parkinson Disease Development Identified

... normally protects cells from oxidative stress and promotes cell survival by regulating function of the protein TRAP1. The Emory researchers found that when PINK1 is mutated, however, the protective TRAP1 pathway is disrupted, leading to mitochondrial damage. They also have evidence that single-copy mutat...

Protein That may Prevent Eye Damage in Premature Babies Identified

...in helps stop oxygen-induced blood vessel loss and promotes healthy vascular regrowth. "The implications for retinopathy are that IGFBP-3 appears to have benefit in preventing vessel loss independent of insulin-like growth factor-1 in both the mouse model of oxygen-induced retinopathy and in infants with re...

Researchers Have Found the Role of Protein in Accelerating Breast Cancer Progression

...itro that inappropriate expression of PTN not only promotes breast cancer progression but that by itself PTN secretion from human breast cancer cells may be sufficient to shift that progression to a more aggressive form of breast cancer," he said. As a part of the study, three animal models were tested to de...

Physical Activity can Be Increased by a Motivating Mail

Only 25 percent of Americans meet the recommended levels of physical activity, defined by engaging in moderate intensity activity four days o...

New Research Promises To Take The Pain Off Breast Feeding

...on top of her. To look at whether this technique promotes feeding reflexes in the baby, she videotaped 40 women breastfeeding in a sitting-up position and lying down or reclining in the first month of life. She spotted 17 reflexes in babies when they were breastfed lying down, including reflexes normally...

Red Cross renders emergency relief efficiently

It became so popular ever since its origin that almost all healthcare workers started to identify themselves with the symbol. The society is still fighting to have this rectified. 'When the B...

Floida to Electronically Track Alzheimers Patients

MedicAlert bracelets bear a recognizable medical symbol on the outside and have the patient's medical condition...

New Insights into Chronic Inflammation and Atherosclerosis

.... The vascular inflammation might be a factor that promotes atherosclerosis and the formation of aneurysms. Aortic samples were obtained during CABG surgery, performed at two cardiac centers in Norway, from 66 patients with inflammatory rheumatic disease and 51 control patients. The inflammatory rheumatic ...

Fat Screen Delivers Plant-derived Chemical With Antidiabetic Effects

...de "a second example of a small molecule that both promotes fat cell differentiation in vitro and improves glucose tolerance in vivo," Tontonoz's team concluded. The biological activities of harmine and TZDs underscore the fact that links between fat tissue and insulin resistance are complex and are likely to...

Brain Inflammation A Friend for Alzheimer's Patients

...flammation. IL-1 beta, a signaling molecule that promotes brain inflammation, was one of the first molecules that scientists found in higher levels in the brains of people with Alzheimers disease compared to healthy people. Its recognized as a critical player in bringing about much of the brain damage that ...

TO not only promotes development of an increased gas exchange surface area, but also markedly remodels pulmonary vasculature and stimulates endothelial cell proliferation, the authors state. In all of the models they note that TO eliminates the thickening of fine blood v...

Myelin Associated With Early Evolution of Huntington's Disease

...pse of a type of myelin that develops late in life promotes the enlargement of toxic amyloid plaques long associated with Alzheimer's disease. Myelin is the "insulation" that wraps around nerve axons in the brain. Now, in a new report presently online in the journal Neurochemical Research, Bartzokis turns h...
