Tsunami-damaged coral reefs should be left to recover naturally, say scientists

...ruction programmes undertaken on the land can also adversely affect marine wildlife, say the scientists. Professional environmental impact assessments should be carried out in the first instance so that projects can be undertaken with the minimum of impact.

Malfunctioning bone marrow cells sabotage nerve cells in diabetes

...d that the bone marrow cells that produced insulin adversely affected nerve cells or neurons. "In our latest studies, we were surprised to discover that insulin-producing cells originating from bone marrow caused premature cell death and dysfunction when they merged with neurons, resulting in neuropathy," sa...

Scientists uncover new clues about brain function in human behavior

...entral to human experience and well-being, and are adversely affected in psychiatric illness. This may be the first study to identify functional disturbances in a brain pathway associated with abnormal social behavior caused by a genetic disorder," said NIMH Director Thomas R. Insel, M.D. In this study, inves...

New understanding of jet lag

...his results in complex signaling patterns that may adversely affect the functioning of tissues and organs throughout the body for a period of several days. Importantly, the study identifies the neurotransmitter GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) as the link between the two clock parts that eventually pulls them b...

Acid water in East Java threatens biodiversity and local welfare

...fect on the well-being of the local population, it adversely affects the biodiversity. Lohr sampled the water at various locations.

New results validating Pall prion reduction filter disclosed at ISBT Congress

... technology to remove all types of prions that can adversely affect people," said Dr. Coker. The sporadic CJD study is the latest in a series of studies of the filter's capability in reducing prions, including scrapie (a prion disease affecting sheep) and mouse-adapted human vCJD. He also reviewed results of n...
