Drugs called protease inhibitors currently are used to treat patients infected with HIV and have also shown promise in treating hepatitis C patients in experimental trials. "We now know that treating patients with a protease inhibitor w...

Deficiency of growth hormone and IGF-1 reduces cancer and kidney disease, but creates other problems

...mones also increase cancer and other diseases that limit lifespan. The researchers developed a strain of dwarf rats that were naturally deficient in both growth hormone and in IGF-1. To mimic the rise in growth hormone and IGF-1 during adolescence in normal rats, some of these deficient rats were given gr...

Breakthrough method in nanoparticle synthesis paves the way for new pharmaceutical and biomedical applications

Polymers with copper show promise for implanted sensors

...those materials have some characteristics that may limit their usefulness. "In some instances, the chemistry in the polymer is sensitive to moisture and heat, so whether it can be easily commercialized is one of the big issues," he said. In addition, the polymer coating must be very thin for most biomedica...

Insight into natural cholesterol control suggests novel cholesterol-lowering therapy

...ovided insight into a key mechanism by which cells limit cholesterol synthesis. The finding suggests a novel approach to the development of cholesterol-lowering drugs that may boost the effect of statins, one of the most prescribed cholesterol inhibitors, according to researchers at the University of Texas...

Technique may allow cancer patients to freeze eggs, preserving fertility before starting treatment

Researchers question if it is appropriate for women with cancers fueled by estrogen, such as breast cancer. In addition, the hormone treatments require delaying the start of cancer therapy, which may not be an option ...

The researchers discovered this type of bacteria for the first time a few years ago in the oxygen poor Black Sea and now also in the open ocean. This discovery has major consequences for our understanding of the global nitro...

Genetic therapy reverses nervous system damage in animal model of inherited human disease

..." Wolfe said. "We believe, however, we can further limit the number of injections by the use of strong promoters that could increase the amount of enzyme that comes from corrected cells." Although encouraged by their findings, the researchers note that any clinical trials in humans might be years in the f...
