Research Using Mouse Models Reveals A Novel Key Player In The Initiation Of Colon Cancer

... deficiency affected the onset of tumor formation, accelerating them to arise in 1/3rd of the normal time. The authors examined the integrity of the APC gene in these tumor cells and found that more than ninety per cent of the tumors had lost the normal copy of the APC gene and now were completely deficient. Wha...

Agilent Technologies releases automated literature search tool for biology researchers

"This literature search tool was developed within Labs to facilitate our own research collaborations and has proved ver...

Affymetrix and the Karolinska Institutet Announce Translational Medicine Strategic Alliance

...rategic alliance designed to improve healthcare by accelerating the translation of basic genetic research into tools for better diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment. During the next five years the projects include genetic analyses and measurement of gene expression in patients with atherosclerosis, breast cancer,...

Buying Time Through Hibernation on Demand

...al application of oxygen deprivation would include accelerating wound healing in patients, such as diabetics, whose ability to do so is compromised. This could reduce the number of amputations caused by irreparable tissue damage from wounds that won't heal. A wound to the skin allows the entry of oxygen, which in...

...(intercellular adhesion molecule-1) and DAF (decay accelerating factor). This CVA21 technology which has been identified by Professor Shafren and his team to be effective in killing cancer cells, is on-licensed to Psiron, as has Echovirus Type 1 (EV1), which has shown promise in animal studies in ovarian cancer....

Reservoirs may accelerate the spread of invasive aquatic species, researchers say

...oirs around the globe could be contributing to the accelerating spread of exotic aquatic species, according to a Forum article in the June 2005 issue of BioScience. John A. Havel of Southwest Missouri State University and Carol Eunmi Lee and M. Jake Vander Zanden of the University of Wisconsin survey evidence ind...

Gladstone investigators discover how resting T cells avoid HIV infection

...s the antiviral effect of A3G by binding to it and accelerating its destruction as well as decreasing is production. These effects of Vif were so complete that no A3G was left in infected activated CD4 T for incorporation into the new viral particles. Thus, this antiviral action of A3G that only occurs in activat...

Lands surface change on Alaska tundra creating longer, warmer summers in Arctic

...face more readily and contributes to heating, thus accelerating the melting of snow and allowing for more plant growth. Over time, as the permafrost begins to melt, ancient organic matter that has been frozen for thousands of years is exposed, potentially adding more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. The result ...

Progress on HIV/AIDS significant but insufficient

...han ever before. With the epidemic expanding at an accelerating rate and on every continent, treatment and prevention efforts were "nowhere near enough". For example, only 12 per cent of the people in need of antiretroviral therapies in low- and middle-income countries were receiving them. He called for increase...

Errors in the measurement of global warming corrected

Eliminating bacterial infections out of thin air

...the HIF-1 pathway can act as a "super-antibiotic", accelerating the killing of bacteria in conditions typical of those found during bacterial infection and sepsis. The authors show that regulation of HIF-1 is required for immune defense against bacterial infection. They also show that bacteria killing is increas...

The goal is to track and identify all animals and premises that have had contact with an animal disease of concern within 48 hours of an initial diagno...

New amphibian species result from exploration, not from rule changes

...esearchers have discovered amphibian species at an accelerating rate in recent decades, with over 1,000 new ones recognized between 1992 and 2003. At the same time, amphibians are, for reasons not entirely clear, declining more rapidly than either mammals or birds, underscoring the importance of an accurate evalu...

The programme funded 21 projects covering diverse research areas. Highlights from the programme include: Nerve tissue regeneration- During spinal cord injury the nerves that...

Polymer aids in blood clotting, pointing way to new treatment

...which causes renewed bleeding. "The net effect is accelerating the rate at which blood clots form and then prolonging how long they last," Morrissey said. The successful research already has landed the U. of I. a three-year, $300,000 grant from the Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust to establish the Center for Hemo...

Engineered heart tissue offers insights into irregular heartbeats, defibrillator failure

...their aberrant rhythm, and those that responded by accelerating their rhythm. Should such characteristic patterns hold in patients, physicians could potentially use them to identify those people for whom defibrillators are more likely to worsen abnormal heart rate, Bursac said. So-called implantable cardiovert...
