Gene Therapy For Parkinson's Disease Moves Forward In Animals

...t part of the brain called the striatum. They then induced Parkinson-like conditions by introducing a drug to destroy the dopamine-producing cells. Seventeen weeks after that, not only did the GDNF-treated monkeys show improvement in performing tasks, analysis of brain tissue showed the animals' dopamine sys...

The Bacteria's guide to survival

.... Also, a majority of these genes were known to be induced by a family of proteins called mitogen-activated protein kinases, or MAPKs. The researchers showed that blocking MAPKs reduced the activity of several of the genes that are usually enhanced by infection with the normal bacteria. Also, they found that...

Scientists discover how fish evolved to float at different sea depths

...m by 100 million years. The special blood proteins induced development of the swimbladder system. Dr Berenbrink continued: "Many researchers believe that the swimbladder evolved from a primitive lung, which can be traced back 400 million years. These findings will help us to understand the diversity and suc...

Then, 17 patients with histories of heart failure were similarly tested to measure the CK flux. Results showed that CK flux in healthy...

Pathogen-Mimicking Vaccine As Strategy For Cancer Therapy

...) from a melanoma antigen known as Melan-A/MART-1, induced CD8+ T cells that specifically recognized cells displaying Melan-A/MART-1 on their surface. This T cell response occurred in all eight patients in the trial. Responses were one order of magnitude higher than those observed in eight patients who recei...

These cells are very active during wakefulness when an animal or human is aroused and attentive. Previous studies have shown that orexin neurons pr...

UNC launches study of liver injury caused by drugs

"Drug-induced liver injury is an ideal model to study how genes and environment interact to produce disease in some but not all people. We hope the factors identified by DILIN research will provide clues to susceptibility to the ...

NYU and MSKCC research provides model for understanding chemically induced cancer initiation
