Pest control research leads to pain control discovery

...arthritis and other inflammatory diseases. His lab investigates the mechanisms leading to immunological alterations and autoimmunity. As of 2004, physicians prescribed anti-inflammatory medication for more than 73 million patients. But many of the people suffer from pharmacological properties or side effects of...

A new focus for the mechanism of nerve growth

...motile cells," said Forscher. "Instead, this paper investigates turnover or recycling of the actin networks. As the complement to actin network assembly, recycling is necessary to prevent actin buildup that could actually impede neuronal advance." Forscher likened actin networks in the growth cone to a molecular...

Carnegie Mellon develops non-invasive technique to detect transplant rejection at cellular level

...the first signs of rejection. Ho's novel approach investigates transplant rejection non-invasively by observing macrophage accumulation in heart tissues using MRI. "We were able to use MRI to visualize individual macrophages. By tracking individual cells, we also were able to observe, for the first time, that ...
