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

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

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...
