Finding Cures For Tropical Diseases: Is Open Source An Answer?

...d produce profits for shareholders. The model thus fails in thedeveloping world, where few patients can afford to pay patented pricesfor drugs. The solution to this devastating problem, say StephenMaurer, Arti Rai, and Andrej Sali in the premier open-access medicaljournal PLoS Medicine, is to adopt an "ope...

Discovery Promises Simpler Therapy for Sickle Cell Disease

...the red cells of patients with sickle cell disease fails to process nitric oxide properly. As a result, they reported, the membranes of sickle red blood cells are deficient for the form of nitric oxide normally released by the cells. The blood cells therefore fail to open blood vessels normally. Red cells...

Leprosy microbes lead scientists to immune discovery

Harvard School of Public Health is dedicated to advancing the public's health through learning, discovery, and...

Gladstone investigators discover how resting T cells avoid HIV infection

...y the small form in resting CD4 T cells, where HIV fails to grow, and only the large form in activated CD4 T cells, where the virus efficiently grows and wreaks havoc. They further showed that blocking production of the small, active form of A3G in resting CD4 T cells was sufficient to make these normally ...

Ancient immune defense mechanism is no match for HIV-1

...ontains alternative transcriptional activators, it fails to spread productively in human cells." The researchers also suggest that their findings raise a challenge to proposed therapeutic strategies making use of RNAi. "Because HIV-1 evades all other RNAi by point mutations, we reason that its requirement ...

Hopkins AIDS experts issue warning about global efforts to provide drug therapies

...ven a plan with no public input can backfire if it fails to win local support," says McGough, a research fellow at Hopkins' Institute of the History of Medicine. "It is as important to make sure that the decision-making body is politically legitimate and accountable to the public as it is to agree on the c...

Random gene expression may drive HIV into hiding

...idered one of the biggest reasons why drug therapy fails to eradicate HIV from patients. The new findings, which will be published in the July 29, 2005, issue of the journal Cell, could help scientists design new and more effective treatments to slow or halt the progression of HIV infection. HIV normally ...

New vaccine protects more effectively against tuberculosis

...erculosis, termed BCG is available which, however, fails to protect against the most frequent form of disease, pulmonary tuberculosis in adults. A more efficient vaccine is urgently needed for control of this global threat. Recombinant BCG, which express listeriolysin and is deleted for the urease gene, ...

Insulin pulses keep the liver lean

The findings suggest that periods of fasting between meals play a critical role in maintaining a lean and healthy liver by allowing insulin levels to rise a...

Several minute intermediate stage in virus-cell fusion discovered; opportunity for drug development

"If you try to open the inner door before the pressures have equalized, you can tease it open a little bit but it keeps closing on you until there's enough ...

About one in 6000 Australian males is born with haemophilia in severe, moderate or mild form. People with haemophilia rely on intravenous infusion of recombinant Factor VIII clotting protein. Pr...

Micro RNAs play role in egg making

... miRNAs are missing from a developing egg, then it fails to develop to term, and the net result is infertility," said lead author Richard W. Carthew, Owen L. Coon Professor of Molecular Biology at Northwestern. "It is intriguing to think that miRNA dysfunction might be at the root cause of certain forms of...

OHSU researchers discover potential mechanism to repair brain damage linked to Multiple Sclerosis

Anti-cancer drugs may hold promise for premature aging disorder

...ated protein that is called progerin. This protein fails to integrate properly into the lamina, thereby disrupting the nuclear scaffolding and causing gross disfigurement of the nucleus. Cells with progerin have a nucleus with a characteristic "blebbed," or lobular, shape. To find its way to the lamina, ...

The Max Planck research has now demonstrated that the nonhost resistance of plants develops out of a defence system with at least two steps. These steps determine whethe...

Penicillin, amoxicillin: Step aside for strep throat treatment

To understand why the older drugs don't work as well, consider a child's throat as a battleground for many types of bacteria vying for dominance. Repea...
