'Missing Link' Stem Cells may Shorten Path to Therapies

...cells, taken from the inner-most layer of week-old rodent embryos, will provide a better model in testing potential therapies for human diseases and injuries, the researchers said. "They are a missing link between mouse and human embryonic stem cells," Roger Pedersen, who headed a research team at Cambrid...

Antibody-based Therapies Effective at Controlling Malaria

...ficacy of human antibodies can be determined using rodent malaria parasites transgenic for P. falciparum antigens in mice and humans.

Sleep Deprivation may Lead to Impaired Memory, Says Study

...production coincided with an increase in the major rodent stress hormone, corticosterone. We know that sleep deprivation is stressful, and that it impairs certain types of learning and memory. We concluded that sleep deprivation decreases neurogenesis by elevating stress hormones." The findings of this re...

Adolescent Smokers Have Greater Vulnerability To AUDs Than Do Non-Smokers
