Common cancer gene sends death order to tiny killer

...rated that these tiny RNA molecules are frequently abnormal in cancer cells. "P53 is one of the most commonly mutated genes in human cancers," says Mendell. "And there is now a great deal of evidence that microRNAs themselves can act to either promote cancer or to stop cancer spread." To test their idea...

Researchers discover inherited mutation for leukemia

...ls use this process to silence unneeded genes. But abnormal DNA methylation can turn off genes that control cell growth, and that lead to tumor growth. "Our findings identify for the first time a gene that appears to be associated with hereditary CLL," says coauthor John C. Byrd, professor of internal med...

...th factor, and the disease manifests itself by the abnormal growth of bone in the middle ear, it may have a large potential for therapy”, she said. Improved understanding may also lead to prevention strategies. Ms Thys and her team decided to study a gene called TGBF1 which they already knew had non-geneti...

Vaccine prevents prion disease in mice

...nated with prions. The disease causes dementia and abnormal limb movements. Prion is a protein that is also an infectious agent. The proteins are so similar to proteins found normally that the immune system does not fight them off. To develop a vaccine that would stimulate the mice's immune system, resear...

Risk of lymphoma increases with hepatitis C virus infection

...e risk for cryoglobulinemia, a condition marked by abnormal levels of certain antibodies in the blood, was also elevated for those with HCV infections. The researchers looked at patient records collected from Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals across the United States between 1996 and 2004. Researchers selecte...

Cornell lab confirms deadly fish virus spreading to new species

Some may be carriers, and visible signs of the disease may vary from species to species. Containing the spread of the virus in New York will require restrictions on the movem...

UCLA study uncovers clues for why Graves' disease attacks the eyes

An antibody must latch to a specific receptor ?like a key into a lock -- in order to elicit a cellular response. The receptors mobbed the patients?immune systems, even on T-cells that normally woul...

Heart failure: Intervention possibilities from imaging programmed cell loss

...he body's normal way of getting rid of unneeded or abnormal cells—may help in early identification of those individuals who are at risk of developing heart failure, say researchers in the April Journal of Nuclear Medicine. "Our study indicates that it is feasible to noninvasively identify cell loss—or apopto...

Gene found for rare disorder may reveal new pathway in mental retardation
