Cells re-energize to come back from the brink of death

...s the levels of an enzyme called GAPDH in order to counteract CICD. GAPDH appears to prevent CICD by supporting the functioning of the mitochondria and triggering the activity of certain genes that prevent or repair cell damage. The findings also suggest that the increase in GAPDH provides energy to increase au...

HIV and malaria combine to adversely affect pregnant women and their infants

...nd have also discovered how the HIV virus works to counteract this defence. The research could lead to improved vaccines for pregnant women in malaria-ravished regions. Malaria is a parasitic disease spread by mosquitoes that kills more than one million people every year. While the disease affects mostly child...

Our study provides a new perspective on the Nod1 pathway in mammalian cells as well as the value of drawing on plant studies of R protein pathways to better understand the pathogen recognition functions of these proteins." ...

Researchers urge monitoring of bone health during chemotherapy

...siology. "But there are things that can be done to counteract this. Physicians should carefully monitor their cancer patient's bone health with regular bone density scans (DEXA) and prescribe medications to prevent bone loss when needed.

Can engineered immune cells stop AIDS?

...hells as delivery vehicles to insert DNA that will counteract the infection. The "Cadillac" of this gene delivery system is an HIV-based "lentiviral vector," a type of retrovirus that uses the backbone of a virus to infect both dividing and nondividing cells. Wang says lentiviral vectors are very effici...

Leukemic cells find safe haven in bone marrow

Scientists show drug can counteract muscular dystrophy in mice

.... "This is the first example of using a drug to counteract muscular dystrophy in mouse models," says Dr. Sartorelli. Yet he points out that the drug is only promoting muscle regeneration ?it is not curing the defect that causes muscle deterioration. Further studies are needed to determine how long the drug ...

Brain protein improves stroke symptoms in rats, even when injected after 3 days

...e brain is to control the formation of neurons and counteract neurone death, reduces the size of the area affected by a stroke by a third when injected four hours after the onset of the stroke. The study also shows that regular, delayed injections of G-CSF, starting up to three days after experimental stroke, a...

Neurons grown from embryonic stem cells restore function in paralyzed rats

...ram, a drug approved to treat depression, helps to counteract axon-inhibiting signals from myelin. Some animals also received transplants of neural stem cells that secreted the nerve growth factor GDNF into the sciatic nerve (the sciatic nerve extends from the spine down the back of the hind leg). GDNF causes ...
