Genetic defects give the immune system the green light to attack the pancreas

...as type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis and others. To understand what happens in type 1 diabetes, the researchers combined a unique set of cutting-edge technologies, using cultures of thymus cells from transgenic mice, together with DNA chips and “genome scans.?They compared non-obese di...

NHGRI targets 12 more organisms for genome sequencing

...scular studies; the DA strain, used for studies of arthritis and cancer; and the SHR strain, used in studies of hypertension.

New understanding of cell movement may yield ways to brake cancer's spread

...t halt cancer metastasis and immune disorders like arthritis and asthma. "Previous studies by us and others have identified how a migrating cell 'gets its wheels' and, mechanistically, is able to move. In this study, we have now determined how these wheels become pointed in the right direction", said Vuori. "...

Stroke treatment a step closer after trial

...ry. IL-1ra is currently used to manage rheumatoid arthritis but, as a long-term treatment, the cost is prohibitive. With stroke, the drug would have to be administered within the first few critical hours through an infusion over a short period of time, perhaps as little as three days. Dr Tyrrell, who is base...

Synthetic Protein Eases Arthritis Symptoms in Mice

Molecular research suggest shift needed in how some drugs are created

...ng pathway, which would be beneficial for treating arthritis and reducing inflammation, said Nair, who also is a researcher in the Center for Biophysics and Computational Biology at Illinois. Signaling in the pathway uses protein molecules that contain death-domains. "What our structure tells us is that the p...

Scientists directly view immune cells interacting to avert autoimmunity

...body's own tissue -- the cause of type 1 diabetes, arthritis and other autoimmune diseases. The scientists showed that Treg cells prevent this destructive response after they and the T helper cells independently interact with dendritic cells. The mechanism of this protective effect remains a major immunology ...

Infection 'alarm' yields clues to immune system behavior

Patients with the greatest and most persistent increases in CRP concentration suffer higher mortality, and CRP is always deposited in and around the damaged heart tissue. ...

Study in Science holds promise for a new approach to drug therapy

...nflammation as they do in patients with rheumatoid arthritis or heart disease. While M119 did block the action of an enzyme involved in inflammation (PI3kinase), it did not block related signals necessary for basic cell function. In addition, M119 was shown to block activation of phospholipase C, which play...

Brain differences could explain why males and females experience pain relief differently

... Chronic pain from inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia are the most prevalent and pervasive forms of chronic pain. Clinical evidence suggests that women are much more likely to experience chronic forms of pain than are men and that women report feeling more pain than men following vari...
