New bacterium discovered -- related to cause of trench fever

...Koehler recalls. “They can cause extremely painful lesions and tumors of blood vessels on the skin of immunocompromised patients. But when I saw this patient, this type of infection had never been seen at UCSF, and the bacterium causing the infection was unknown.” Koehler’s group went on to discover tha...

Cytomegalovirus exacerbates atherosclerosis through an autoimmune mechanism

Napoleon's mysterious death unmasked, UT Southwestern researcher says

...he body ?compared the original descriptions of the lesions with modern images of 50 benign ulcers and 50 gastric cancers. They determined that no benign cancer could look like the lesion described in the autopsy. "It was a huge mass from the entrance of his stomach to the exit. It was at least 10 centimet...

Inhibiting blood to save the brain

...n that failed to bind Mac-1 had fewer inflammatory lesions and less severe MS symptoms. Blocking the interaction between Mac-1 and fibrinogen after the first episode of paralysis using the fibrin peptide prevented subsequent relapses. It also prevented further microglia activation and damage to myelin in t...

Stretching DNA to the limit

...leotide chains, as well as causes the formation of lesions by linking together the adjacent strands. The small changes in structure induced by this crosslinking can very profoundly affect the ability of DNA to recognize specific molecules, and can thus completely disrupt its ability to replicate and interact...

Pregnancy hormone key to repairing nerve cell damage

...mice. Further, when non-pregnant mice with MS-like lesions were injected with prolactin, their myelin was also repaired. The research was based on evidence that MS, which is more common in women than men, goes into remission when women become pregnant. MS is a neurodegenerative disease where the body's ow...

Smokers quit after damage to brain region

... "This is the first study of its kind to use brain lesions to study a drug addiction in humans," Naqvi said. In the 1990s, Antonio Damasio proposed the insula, a small island enclosed by the cerebral cortex, as a "platform for feelings and emotion." The Science study shows that the pleasure of smoking appe...

Decoy pill saves brain cells

...zures still occurred, as in control mice, no brain lesions were observed in the subjects. "We eliminate a big chunk of neuronal death," Baudry said. "I was surprised that this works. It looks like the peptide is almost completely neuroprotective." Baudry, one of USC’s most frequently cited researchers,...

Antioxidant protects against lung damage in silicosis

...Silica particles were consistently associated with lesions containing HO-1 expressing cells," added Dr. Ishigatsubo. "The number of HO-1-expressing cells was significantly higher in patients with silicosis than in control subjects." The investigators said that their present results indicate that silicosis...

Insulin receptor stops progression of Alzheimer's disease

...they decrease oxidative stress, resulting in fewer lesions in the brain. "If the diagnosis is suspected or patients are in the early phases of AD, there's a good possibility they could get treatment that will help them. It's possible that in the moderate phase, treatment will also help, but more work needs...
