Drugs disrupt formation of blood vessels

...entists tested drugs to see if they could stop the signals that are emitted to trigger the formation of the blood vessels that fuel the growth of tumours. Four compounds, known as AGM-1470, BB-94, angiostatin and endostatin, together with a combination of the last two, were tested. They found that if admin...

Drug abuse leads to long standing changes in the brain

...ls that are part of a brain circuit that transmits signals using the chemical dopamine, which plays a role in movement control and feelings of pleasure. The researchers administered a battery of tests to assess attention, memory, mood, general intelligence and motor function. Results showed that, on averag...

New treatment for depression

... implanted in a person's chest, sends intermittent signals to the left vagus nerve in the brain. The device was originally used to treat patients with epilepsy. However, it was later found to have a positive effect on the part of the brain that regulates mood prompting these latest trials. Doctors at the u...

Epilepsy can be predicted

...tale transition phase in the pattern of electrical signals emitted by the brain prior to a seizure that lasts for several minutes. In 25 of 26 recordings, picking up these changes allowed the researchers to anticipate a seizure on average seven minutes before it occurred. They say: "The ability to anticipa...

Leptin connected to obesity blood clots

...n has been seen as a hormone that produces satiety signals in the brain and stops people wanting to eat once they're full. Mice without leptin grow massively fat, but it's been hard to reproduce this finding in humans - so leptin is not about to become a wonder slimming pill. However, other research in hum...

Leptin linked to Blood Clots

...l Association. Leptin is released by fat cells and signals the body to stop eating. But this system can break down in overweight people, Eitzman explained. Leptin levels can get too high among obese individuals and when that happens, the person can become resistant to leptin's signals, making them more vulne...

Gestational Diabetes linked to Chromosomal defici

For others, it may be precursor to type 1 diabetes, a form of the disease caused by an abnormal immune system attack on the body's insulin-producing cells. The researchers speculate that some women wit...

Morphine may excite cancerous tumors

MAPK promotes endothelial cell multiplication and angiogenesis, or formation of new blood vessels. Angiogenesis can cause tumor growth by pr...

Modified antibiotic may support fight cancer

... COL-3 appears to block some of the chemical signals that come from an existing tumour that otherwise encourage cancer cells' movement throughout the surrounding tissue. It may be that COL-3 would be useful in conjunction with conventional anti-cancer drugs which kill cancer cells. Further research wil...
