Researchers make headway in mystery of migraines

...s known to cause a form of inherited migraine--the kind that cause debilitating headaches and light flashes known as auras--target a cellular process involved in brain cell communication. "A number of mutations have been shown to result in familial migraines," says Dr. Rhoda Blostein--a medical scientist...

Stem cell therapy successfully treats heart attack in animals

...art failure." The researchers are using a special kind of stem cell in an early stage of development, called adult mesenchymal stem cells, to avoid potential problems with immunosuppression, in which every human's immune system might attack stem cells from sources other than itself. Bone marrow adult ste...

Any exposure to tobacco smoke during pregnancy is risky

... much damage as active smoking, and it is the same kind of damage," said Dr. Grant, whose primary area of study is genotoxicity and the mechanisms of DNA repair. "These kinds of mutations are likely to have lifelong repercussions for the exposed fetus, affecting survival, birth weight and susceptibility t...

Specialized immune-system B cells play double-barreled role

...hat there is a tiered response system in which one kind of B-1 cell consistently provides a low level of protection, while the other specifically responds to an infection to help eliminate it." According to Haas and Tedder, the findings offer potential insights into the mechanism of vaccine action. For e...

New insight into autoimmune disease: Bacterial infections promote recognition of self-glycolipids

...ovides evidence that bacterial infections induce a kind of self-recognition that may contribute to some autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS) and Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS). There is evidence that the development of certain autoimmune diseases may be associated with a bacterial or viral ...

"This kind of aggressive behavior is usually the last stage before coyotes actually start attacking humans -- such as small children that are perceived by the coyotes as a potential food source," says Paul Curtis, associate professor of natural resources at Cor...

Size matters: Preventing large mammal extinction
