Study suggests some drug resistance to influenza B medications

...amivir are now used more extensively than anywhere else in the world. In the winter of 2004-2005, an influenza B virus caused a widespread epidemic in Japan, creating an opportunity to assess the effectiveness of neuraminidase inhibitors.

In obesity, brain becomes 'unaware' of fat

...weight, and leptin levels remain normal. Something else must protect them.? The animals that did become obese maintained normal levels of the ARH brain receptors that respond to leptin, the researchers showed, while the level of SOCS-3 rose. Leptin hormone in those heavy animals failed to elicit “any el...

Researchers seek to design first treatment for neuroAIDS

... led researchers to ask whether there is something else about HIV besides its attack on immune cells that causes disease in the brain. The emerging answer is that the indirect effects of infection, like proteins released by the virus and chemicals released by human cells reacting to them, are toxic in the...

The study, published in this week's issue of Science, also finds no evidence of genetic admixture between Neanderthals and humans. The study helps to explain the evolutionary relationship between Homo sapiens and ...

Ferns provide model for tiny motors powered by evaporation

...aharbiz gave her a book on plants. But something else in the book caught her attention---the section on how ferns spread their spores. "It's essentially a microactuator," said Maharbiz, meaning that the fern sporangium transforms one form of energy, in this case heat via the evaporation of water, into ...
