Brain inflammation may be friend, not foe, for Alzheimer's patients

...e of inflammation in Alzheimer’s disease. O’Banion notes that some studies have found that taking medications to squelch inflammation, such non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs, might help reduce a person’s chances of getting Alzheimer’s disease, while other studies, including a study of more th...

Cigarette smoke alters DNA in sperm, genetic damage could pass to offspring

...ein-coding regions of DNA where genes reside, Yauk notes that previous studies correlate mutations in non-coding regions with those in coding regions, and that some repetitive regions of DNA (not exam-ined in this study) are associated with genes. “It stands to reason that mutations could also interfer...

Studies to find better ways to preserve human eggs, ovarian tissue under way

.... As pieces of a puzzle come together, Dr. Song notes scientists already are developing methods to stimulate ovarian tissue to produce eggs outside the body, a process that could also make in vitro fertilization a lot more affordable. Others are looking for ways to ensure there are no cancer germ cells ...

Fauci, M.D. Led by Michael Otto, Ph.D., of NIAID’s Rocky Mountain Laboratories (RML), the scientists used the gram-positive bacterium Staphylococcus epidermidis to study its response to a specific human AMP, human beta de...

Genetic factors are linked to fever following smallpox vaccination

Karpen notes that one intensively studied and puzzling problem in chromosome biology will benefit enormously from the new findings: epigenetics -- the inheritance of traits and genetic information as controlled by proteins associated with the chromosomes, rather ...

Researchers discover 'acquired' DNA key to certain bacterial infection

...100,000 persons may be affected. However, CDC also notes that the bacterium’s resistance to antibiotics – already a problem – may be increasing. In contrast, the incidence of lung infection in patients with chronic lung diseases and cystic fibrosis is increasing. Understanding the mechanism by how M. av...

Helping chlorine-eating bacteria clean up toxic waste

He notes the integrated platform, biological reagents and computational models developed under this project have applicability beyond infectious disease research. These technologies can also be used for studying cellular signaling involved in diseases such as...

Discovery could lead to better control of hemorrhagic fever viruses

...lls makes them less susceptible to infection. Choe notes that New World hemorrhagic fever outbreaks mostly occur in poor rural areas, where people are often deficient in micronutrients, including iron, possibly predisposing them to more severe infection when exposed to the rodents that carry the viruses. ...

Study examines risk of soft tissue sarcomas in hereditary retinoblastoma survivors
