Youth With HIV Take More Risks After New Meds Introduced

...te at the David Geffen School of Medicine. Highly active antiretroviral therapies, or HAART, were introduced in 1996. The new drugs have successfully lowered virus levels and prolonged the lives of thousands of HIV patients. Although the new study does not prove that the introduction of HAART is the cause...

Studies of two patient groups revealed that a certain variant of the human homologue of the gene was more common in people who had a history of cardiac infarction than those without. “This is an example ...

Researchers discover underwater volcano

...ersity of California, San Diego, has discovered an active underwater volcano near the Samoan Island chain. During a research cruise to study the Samoan hot spot, scientists uncovered a submarine volcano growing in the summit crater of another larger underwater volcano, Vailulu'u. Researchers explored the u...

Novel gene-silencing nanoparticles shown to inhibit Ewing's sarcoma

...cific growth-promoting gene called EWS-FLI1 that's active only in Ewing's sarcoma tumors. Once inside these cells, the genetic machinery of the tumor cells are effectively silenced or shut down, preventing further growth. "This is the first study to show that systemic administration of siRNA can inhibit d...

Biochemists report discovery of structure of major piece of telomerase; implications for cancer

...n most types of healthy cells in our bodies, it is active in the vast majority of cancer cells, Feigon said. Because cancer cells divide rapidly, their telomeres should get shorter more quickly than normal cells. However, because cancer cells have high levels of telomerase activity, which rebuilds the telo...

Marine sponge yields nanoscale secrets

Genetic therapy reverses nervous system damage in animal model of inherited human disease

...s for gene therapy because, as we show with LAMAN, active enzymes from genetically corrected cells will be secreted into brain tissue and taken up by neighboring cells, Wolfe said. "In this case we see that storage lesions throughout the brain had been greatly reduced, even though gene transfer was limited ...

One gene links newborn neurons with those that die in diseases such as Alzheimer's

...st neurons born during adulthood die, but a bird's active singing increases the survival rate of new neurons. They reasoned that, if UCHL1 levels are related to the death or survival of neurons, these levels should increase when birds are singing and when more new neurons thus have a chance of surviving. In...

Study reveals dramatic difference between breast cancers in US and Africa
