First clinical trial of gene therapy for childhood blindness

...ouraging that we can deliver genes to an extremely fragile site in the eye without complications." Professor Moore said: "Some indications of the results of the trial may be available within several months. However, the subjects will need to be followed-up to assess the long term effect of the treatment...

Diminishing dinosaur steps saved by laser and laptop

...is MPhil degree project. Karl said: "Due to the fragile environment and the sensitivity of the site we were not permitted direct contact and therefore all measurements had to taken remotely. Dr Manning added: "Laser scanning allowed the rapid, high resolution, 3D digital mapping of an otherwise inacces...

NIH researchers discover protein that appears to regulate bone mass loss, the cause of osteoporosis

...cterized by a severe loss of bone mineral density, fragile bones and an increased risk of hip, spine and wrist fractures. The basic mechanism behind osteoporosis involves an imbalance between bone mineral formation and loss, but the detailed biological processes that lead to this imbalance are not completely...

Anti-fungal drug stops blood vessel growth

...erol, causing these primitive life forms to become fragile and break apart. It turns out that itraconazole can block the same enzyme in blood vessels, but the researchers aren’t positive if that’s the reason blood vessels stop growing, because related antifungal drugs had much lower inhibitory effect. “O...

Gold nanoparticles prove to be hot stuff

...s to both apply force to and track the position of fragile biomolecules such as DNA or protein by manipulating a tiny sphere--typically polystyrene--attached to the molecule. The JILA team would like to find new microsphere materials that can be trapped by laser radiation pressure more efficiently, which wou...

Molecular 'marker' on stem cells aids research, perhaps therapies

...ruction or augmentation, or to shore up bones left fragile by age or disease. “With a purer cell population, you should have a more effective therapy,?Dr. Perlingeiro said.

Study: Living coral reefs provide better protection from tsunami waves

...findings offer yet another reason to protect these fragile offshore ecosystems. "This study shows yet another way that protecting the environment relates to humanity in a very tangible way," he said. "Villages get built behind coral reefs for good reasons, and this is one of them." Kunkel said that she ...

China's environmental challenges

...tor of at least 1.3, putting the country's already fragile freshwater systems under greater strain.

Loosen up, DNA: Leukemia gene changes genetic packaging

...netic information into our cells while keeping the fragile DNA strands safe. Our DNA contains tens of thousands of genes along the seven feet of DNA that is spooled up very tightly around proteins called histones in the nucleus of nearly every cell in our bodies. The whole structure, called chromatin, looks ...

Global warming may have damaged coral reefs forever

...ted sites. Reduced biodiversity results in a more fragile and less stable ecosystem. Smaller fish have reduced in number more quickly than larger species but their decreased availability has started to have a more lasting effect on the food chain, and this effect is likely to be amplified as time goes on....

Bedsores and bald hides: Novel roles revealed for a 'scaffolding' protein
