In mice, drug protects against diabetes and atherosclerosis

...h Hotamisligil cautioned that experiments were not designed to look for such effects rigorously. While it is not certain that the experimental compound or others like it can be developed into successful drugs for humans, Hotamisligil described the animal results as a long-sought success after a decade of i...

U-M researchers discover gene switched off in cancer can be turned on

...find a better way to turn it back on. No drugs are designed to deal with a gene that’s turned off. But it’s a straightforward extension of current therapies that target genes that are turned on,” says lead study author David Reisman, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor of internal medicine at the U-M Medical Sch...

Using an ingeniously designed experiment, Pierce and his co-authors were able to document details of bee social behavior that fundamentally confirm the hypothesis that major colony activities are initiated by the cumulative group actions of the colony’s older workers, not by the...
