Genetic Disease Causes hearing loss

...990 and December 2006, to determine the mechanisms underlying hearing loss in patients with ELSTs. Clinical findings and audiologic data were correlated with magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography imaging studies. Thirty-five patients with von Hippel-Lindau disease and ELSTs in 38 ears were identi...

Exercise Reduces Inflammation

According to the researchers, that knowledge could potentially lead to a better understanding of the relationship between exercise and inflammation. The objective of their res...

Liver Cancer More Prevalent in Males

...n in mice. In order to understand the mechanisms underlying gender disparity in HCC, the UCSD researchers used a chemical carcinogen, DEN, to induce cancer in mice. This resulted in HCC in 100 percent of male mice, but only in 10 to 20 percent of their female littermates. The researchers discovered that nor...

Parkinsons Disease Mechanism Identified

...e reported progress in understanding the mechanism underlying that death, which they say suggests a new treatment pathway . In the vast majority of Parkinsons disease (PD) patients, the disorder arises not because of a genetic defect, but because some external insult triggers the death of dopamine-producing n...

New Therapies for Kidney Diseases

...BL have shed new light on the molecular mechanisms underlying NPHP opening up novel ways to treat the disease. Our mice show striking similarities with NPHP patients, says Mathias Treier, group leader at EMBL. Very early on in their lives their kidney cells start to die and the mice develop all the characteri...

U.S Shows Increased Obesity Rate

Beydoun, coauthor of the study and a postdoctoral fellow in the Bloomberg School of Public Healths Department of International Health. Obesity is likely to continue to increase, and if nothing is done, it will soon become the le...

Understanding the Mechanism Underlying Embryo Development

Research aimed at understanding the mechanisms underlying embryo development has taken a step forward thanks to collaborative work between biologists specialized in the study of the fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) and scientists specialized in the design of mathematical models that simulate the functio...

Researchers Develop First Mouse Model of Lung Transplantation

... the new model will be far better for studying the underlying immune mechanisms that lead to rejection, Okazaki said. The new mouse lung transplant model has an advantage over those in rats and larger animals because the genetics of mice are well documented and their genes are easier to manipulate. With th...
