Old memory traces in brain may trigger chronic pain

...sed by a single mechanism, Apkarian noted. Sensory abnormalities in people with chronic pain probably drive this memory abnormality. About 10 percent of the United States population suffers from chronic pain, of which the majority is back pain. One of Apkarian’s studies with rats tried to separately measure...

First confirmed common genetic risk factors for breast cancer

...e, by helping cells to repair DNA breaks and other abnormalities that can result from chance or exposure to an environmental toxin, such as excessive UV sunlight. However, BRCA-1, BRCA-2 and the other previously identified breast cancer susceptibility genes are mutated in a relatively small percentage of women. ...

Study offers clues to 'Broken Heart Syndrome'

...nts, cardiac catheterization showed characteristic abnormalities in the motion of the heart. One patient died of acute heart failure. The good news is that most patients who survived the first 48 hours had a steady recovery. Thirty one, or 78 percent, of patients had follow-up echocardiography within a few wee...

To make the maps, the researchers started with sections of brain mounted on microscope slides. Those slides were scanned to create image files or "virtual slides," ...

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

...enes along the cohesin pathway also cause specific abnormalities during human development. "In these cohesin complex proteins, the strongest effect seems to be in brain development," said Dr. Krantz. Drs. Krantz and Jackson together maintain the world's largest database of patients with CdLS. The current study...

New player in commitment to life as a fat cell

...OR as a potential therapeutic target for metabolic abnormalities beyond hyperuricemia," the researchers said. "To our knowledge, there have not been studies designed to explore the effects of XOR inhibitors on body weight, and in light of our findings, such studies may be warranted," they added....

Researchers find gene mutation that causes infertility in male mice

...s. However, female carriers show higher rates of abnormalities during meiosis, which can potentially cause chromosome imbalances and birth defects, the researchers discovered. In addition, the researchers found that female mice with the Dmc1 mutation are born with fewer egg cells and can run out of eggs prematur...

Tumor-suppressor gene is critical for placenta development

...orators discovered that loss of the Rb gene caused abnormalities in the placenta, especially where it contacts the uterus. They published that research in the journal Nature. "This was the first evidence that Rb had an important role in the placenta," says Pamela Wenzel, a graduate student in Leone's laboratory...

Genes and biomarkers that allow doctors to choose the right therapy for the right patient

...sents a single variant among the different genomic abnormalities found among breast cancers. They measured molecular profiles of each cell line and used these to identify subsets of cell lines that represent the subtypes observed in analyses of primary tumors. By correlating the responses of these cells to ta...

Stanford scientists make major breakthrough in regenerative medicine

...evolutionary ancestor, the sea squirt, can correct abnormalities over a series of generations, suggesting that a similar regenerative process might be possible in people. "We hope the mechanisms underlying this phenomenon will ultimately lead to new insights regarding the potential of cells and tissues to be rep...

Chromosomal microarray analysis proves accurate

Researchers at the University of Bath, UK, and in Spain have said they have found a way to control the flow of terahertz radiation down a metal wire. Their findings are set out in a letter published in the current...

New gene linked to bipolar disorder
