New treatment for Osteoporosis

...n cells. It was known that when oestrogen binds to receptors in cells, it activates a signal that changes the gene expression. The team found that in bone cells, oestrogen can also trigger a signal preventing the cells from dying thereby prolonging their lives and keeping the bones strong. This signal acts d...

Bald head bad health

...Bald men seem to have a greater number of androgen receptors in their scalps , and androgens may contribute to both atheroscelrosis - build-up of fatty deposits in the arteries - and thrombosis, a susceptibility to blood clots.Researchers also say that heart disease and baldness may be inherited together and t...

Prescription Drug - Helps People Stop Smoking

...edication in Smoquit, buproprion, blocks nicotinic receptors so as to prevent the reuptake of neurotransmitters norepinephrine and dopamine. This sidesteps the problem of the urge to smoke and withdrawal symptoms, which is otherwise a hurdle when a smoker tries to quit smoking. A study of more than 600 smoke...

Heat therapy relieves back pain

... It leads to the growth of new tissue full of pain receptors and to irritation of the spinal nerves. The IDET treatment destroys the painful tissue and is less invasive than traditional surgery for lower back pain, taking just 45 minutes to perform. In the current study, patients said their pain was reduced ...

More about HIV

...munodeficiency virus is a retrovirus that binds to receptors found on membranes of immune system T cells. When HIV attacks a cell, the virus is internalized, copied into DNA, then migrates into the nucleus where it inserts itself as part of the host DNA. In many cases, the inserted viral genes remain dormant, ...

The scientists found substantial decreases in density among heavy female users of the drug but not in the men. Women who had stopped using the drug had higher densities than the heavy users. The heavy use of MDMA...

Alcoholism Drug Fails To Prevent Drinking Relapses

Earlier studies, including the work that led to its FDA approval, showed that when combined with counseling naltrexone could help control alcoholism by reducing drinking days and increasing days without liquor. Th...

Caffeine can induce epilepsy in newborns

...rchers believe that the caffeine molecules bind to receptors in the cells, blocking the action of a chemical called adenosine which plays an important role in handling stress. During stressful episodes such as oxygen starvation, adenosine protects the nerve circuits from uncontrolled activity. ...
