Mice with a migraine show signs of brain damage

...id Nedergaard, who notes that by the time a person feels pain or notices a visual disturbance, the changes to the brain are already well underway. To make the finding, the team used a sophisticated laser system known as two-photon imaging to look at the activity of live cells in the intact brain of a mo...

pHLIP, a novel technology to locate and treat tumors

...a physiological marker of many diseases ?and pHLIP feels acidity,?said Reshetnyak. “Therefore, pHLIP could also be used for monitoring of disease development and therapeutic outcomes. It might play very important role in the study of arthritis, ischemia and stroke.? Lead author Oleg Andreev said, “We b...

New cell type identified in cancer development

... stem cell theory is still in its infancy, but Gao feels these findings, if validated by additional studies, point to a candidate population of precancerous cells that may one day be a valuable target for new drugs and treatments. "To cure cancer, we have to eliminate all potential malignant cells ?not ju...

It is a small animal that scientists find interesting for a particular reason: whereas humans cannot regenerate damaged heart muscle adequately after a heart attack and the destroyed muscle tissue scars ove...

Drug can quickly mobilize an army of cells to repair injury

... at the site of injury will be effective. But Link feels it may make more sense to mobilize the cells into the bloodstream with agents like AMD3100. "It might be better to let the appropriate cells find their way through the circulation to the site of injury or low oxygen," he says. "That way you enhance ...

A new target for painkillers

...se. Symptoms can include numbness and pain that feels like constant burning, "pins and needles," sharp shooting pain, electricity or electrical shock, or tingling. People with neuropathic pain often are hypersensitive to previously innocuous stimuli ?for example, feeling pain from a foot rubbing against...

Mirrors in the mind: New studies elucidate how the brain reflects onto itself the actions of others

...(unseen) hand is synchronously stroked, the viewer feels that the rubber hand becomes part of his or her body. In the new work, the researchers used this illusion--though in this case, the rubber hand was replaced by a real hand of an experimenter--to control whether a subject experienced that an experim...

Genetically altered mice no longer like cocaine

"By doing so we created a dopamine transporter that resists cocaine but also retains its function of taking ...

Just the expectation of a mirthful laughter experience boosts endorphins 27 percent, HGH 87 percent

There's no doubt that laughter feels good, but is there real neurophysiology behind it and what can you do about it? In a paper being presented in an American Physiological Society session at Experimental Biology 2006, Lee S. Berk of Loma Linda University, reports that not only is ther...

New test to detect rare proteins in blood

Rational targeted therapy has shown in animal models ?over 10 years ago ?and more recently in clinical trials that treatment of small or incipient tumors is a ...

Stress substantially slows human body's ability to heal

The stress a typical married couple feels during an ordinary half-hour argument is enough to slow their bodies' ability to heal from wounds by at least one day, a new study has shown. Moreover, if the couple's relationship is routinely hostile toward each other, the delay in that healing p...

Scientists use gene transfer technology and common virus to block neuropathic pain

In both rats and people, scientists measure allodynia by touching the skin with a series of filaments or exposing the skin to small amounts of moderate heat. People with neuropathy perceive the filament's touch or heat as a painful sensation...

Errors in the measurement of global warming corrected
