In mice, drug protects against diabetes and atherosclerosis

...cate the effects of genetic manipulation is a huge milestone and an incredible source of excitement," said Hotamisligil, Professor of Genetics and Complex Diseases. "This drug is very effective in treating diabetes and heart disease in mice at the same time, and we believe it may turn out to be protective agai...

Gene therapy study shows safety and statistically significant improvement in Parkinson's disease

...results from this first-ever trial is an important milestone for this entire field. These promising observations certainly warrant further, more definitive testing of Neurologix’s technology, and we anticipate beginning a larger Phase 2 study in Parkinson’s disease later this year. Moreover, the results also ...

Detecting cold, feeling pain: Study reveals why menthol feels fresh

...opiate receptors act, he says. The finding is a milestone in an investigation the team began several years ago. In 2002, the researchers discovered that the receptor was activated by chemical cooling agents such as menthol, a natural product of mint, and cool air. They reported their discovery, or "cloning,...

Magnetic computer sensors may help study biomolecules

... this electronically, which would be a significant milestone for applications. Parallel processing of single biomolecules would be a significant advance over existing techniques limited to studying one molecule at a time. Optical tweezers, which use lasers to trap and manipulate biomolecules, tend to be sl...

In Iran, cheetahs collared for the first time

...itical to their survival. . "This is an amazing milestone in securing the long-term future for the Asiatic cheetah," said Wildlife Conservation Society biologist Dr. Luke Hunter, who led the international team.

Eclipsing today’s milestone of 2,000 genomes, the microbial sequencing center will continue to rapidly sequence more influenza strains and isolates and will make all the sequence data freely available to the scientific community and the public through GenBank, an Internet-acces...

Fighting like a girl or boy determined by gene in fruit flies

...exual differences in behavior. The findings mark a milestone in an unlikely new animal model for understanding the biology of aggression and how the nervous system gives rise to different behaviors. "Aggression is a very serious problem in society, and it's a problem with a biological and genetic component,...

The work represents a milestone in the analysis of genetic variability for this fundamental immune region and lays the scientific foundation for future efforts aimed at uncovering the genetic roots of immune-related diseases. The findings of this international team, which includes ...

Plant-cell-produced technologies-cutting edge approach to bringing solutions to the market

...ime target. This approval represents an innovative milestone for the company and the industry. The Dow AgroSciences Concert Plant-Cell-Produced System represents a new category of plant-made vaccines. This leading edge technology utilises plant cells instead of whole plants in a secure, bio-contained environ...

Montreal researchers identify defects of immune cells

...developed by the same research group, represents a milestone in developing a treatment for the infection and, eventually, preventing it. They are described in an article of the July 1st issue of The Journal of Immunology. Oral and esophageal Candida albicans infections, which often affect individuals infected...

Many cleaners, air fresheners may pose health risks when used indoors

...heners are being used. The report is an important milestone that highlights the need to investigate potential health effects of ultrafine particles produced in such reactions, said Bart Croes, chief of the ARB's Research Division. "Dr. Nazaroff and his team have done a very thorough scientific assessment of ...

A catalogue of proteins

...olved all the way to mammals. These results are a milestone in cell biology. Matthias Mann says, "for the first time, we are able to determine where exactly in the cell large numbers of proteins belong. It allows a new understanding of their function and interaction with other cellular proteins and cell organ...

Salk researchers make fast strides towards understanding how our body controls walking

...ntract and relax. Their findings mark an important milestone in understanding the neural circuitry that coordinates walking movements - one of the main obstacles in developing new treatments for spinal cord injuries. "Knowing which circuits are important and understanding how they control the essential aspect...

Strawberries by design

...t of this protocol for strawberry represents a key milestone for researchers interested in improving strawberry and other fruit crops through genomics." He added: "We are now in a position to generate a collection of mutants that will serve as an invaluable tool not only for discovering new genes in the Rosace...

Plant-derived vaccines safeguard against deadly plague

...in guinea pigs. The results are considered to be a milestone in the future development of a new vaccine for human use. Plague, caused by a rod-shaped bacterium called Yersinia pestis, no longer invokes the "black death" feared throughout history, having been widely tamed since the advent of antibiotics. But ...

Cracking the genetic code for control of gene expression

... are published in Cell, in January 2006. A genome milestone was reached in 2001 when sequencing of the human genome was completed. This has been followed by complete chemical read-outs of DNA sequence for several species, for example mouse, dog, cow and chicken, in the recent years. But without a code or 'gra...

World first research to speed up cure for ear infections

...esearch into the wound healing process was a major milestone towards LEHI's major tissue engineering project of growing a replacement human ear drum. "If we can understand how an ear drum heals itself we can help clinicians identify new techniques to speed up the healing process for sufferers of ear infection...
