Researchers discover molecule that causes secondary stroke

...the cerebral spinal fluid that envelopes the brain carries off wastes and exchanges them for nutrients at what's called the blood-brain barrier," Dr. Clark says. "After a hemorrhagic stroke, however, toxins given off by the brain bleed contribute to the development of specific molecules that later causes the...

Same mutation aided evolution in many fish species, Stanford study finds

...apt to their unique environments. The recent work carries a few surprises. Kingsley said that the gene in question, called Eda, is an old friend to laboratory researchers who have found that mutations in the same gene in mice cause altered hair patterns. However, in mice similar alterations can also be crea...

The same symptoms from the initial infection can be reactivated by stress later in life. Osterrieder will present his new findings on vaccine effectiveness, involving a limited study ...

Biomarkers isolated from saliva successfully predict oral and breast cancer

...g early cancer. In the cell, messenger RNA or mRNA carries a copy of the genetic code or DNA, housed in the cell's nucleus, to other parts of the cell for protein manufacture. The process by which genes are copied to mRNA, via an enzyme called RNA polymerase, is called transcription and the products are call...

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