New finding points way to foiling anthrax's tricks

...ttle, uncovered the trick while studying how these deadly bacteria steal iron from their human hosts to grow and reproduce. "Humans make a protein called siderocalin to defend against bacteria in the continual arms race between pathogen and host. This is the first example of a protein produced by the hum...

H9N2 avian flu vaccine paired with adjuvant provokes strong human immune response at low doses

...ural immunity to a virus--such as H9N2 or the more deadly H5N1 avian influenza--that historically has circulated only in birds. If H9N2 or H5N1 were to acquire the ability to spread easily from person to person, an influenza pandemic could result, health experts say. In 2004, NIAID directed Novartis Vacci...

A new understanding of how cells defend themselves against bacterial pore-forming toxins

...embranes are penetrated, because they could become deadly if their function is compromised. Van der Goot adds that a better understanding of the biochemical pathway that allows epithelial cells to survive an invasion by a pore-forming toxin will prove valuable as biomedical researchers try to develop dru...

...ation and other forms of treatment and is the most deadly form of brain cancer worldwide. Although aggressive treatments can destroy the majority of the cancerous cells, a small fraction of them remain and often regenerate into even larger masses of tumor cells. Until recently, scientists knew little abo...

Novel EGFR ectodomain mutations in glioblastoma

...ons in the EGFR gene that occur in glioblastoma, a deadly type of brain tumor. The researchers sequenced the whole coding sequence of the EGFR gene in more than 100 glioblastomas. Nearly 15% of the tumors contained missense mutations—changes that altered the amino acid sequence of EGFR. But the mutations w...

Professors to develop hand-held pathogen testing device

Testing for deadly food, air and water pathogens may get a lot easier and cheaper thanks to the work of a Michigan State University researcher and his team. Syed Hashsham, an associate professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Center ...

Holiday gluttony can spell disaster for undiagnosed diabetics

...that packing on pounds and not exercising could be deadly for the 6 million Americans who have diabetes and don't even know it. Diabetes, a metabolic disorder linked with obesity, can be a silent killer because its symptoms aren't sudden, but build up over time and lead to heart disease or other maladies....

Newly discovered behavior in cancer cells signals dangerous metastasis

MRSA toxin acquitted: Study clears suspected key to severe bacterial illness

...and bacterial sepsis. "The strains were just as deadly with or without the PVL toxin," says lead investigator Frank DeLeo, Ph.D., of RML. "Unexpectedly, the average abscess volume in mice infected with strains absent the PVL was slightly greater than those containing the toxin. The strong association bet...

Why don't all moles progress to melanoma?

...ed melanocytes start dividing abnormally to form a deadly form of skin cancer called melanoma. About one in 65 Americans born this year will be diagnosed with melanoma at some point during their lifetime. Scientists know that 30 percent of all melanomas begin in a mole. They know that 90 percent of moles...

MIT bioengineer advances survival, promise of adult stem cells

If bioremediation proves successful on the uranium, technetium, nitrate and other potentially lethal leftovers at the Oak Ridge site, the process should work to mitigate contamination at more than 7,000 other sites nationwide --...

Brown team finds crucial protein role in deadly prion spread

A single protein plays a major role in deadly prion diseases by smashing up clusters of these infectious proteins, creating the "seeds" that allow fatal brain illnesses to quickly spread, new Brown University research shows. The findings are exciting, researchers say, because they might reveal ...
