New compound prevents alcoholic behavior, relapse in animals by blocking stress response

...ul situations without affecting its activity under ordinary circumstances. They studied rats that had been put through several cycles of heavy alcohol consumption and withdrawal to create dependency, as well as animals selectively bred to consume more alcohol. Injections of MTIP prevented excessive drinking o...

Yale biologists 'trick' viruses into extinction

...s in environments containing different mixtures of ordinary "source" bacteria and mutant trap cells that act as "sinks." Their research showed that when the number of trap cells exceeded a key threshold in the mixtures, the virus population could no longer sustain itself and declined toward extinction. ...

Research project tackles 'regeneration' gap

...stem cells, Brain Institute researchers have shown ordinary human brain cells can generate new brain tissue in mice and produce large amounts of new brain cells in culture for use as possible replacements for dead or injured cells.

T-ray breakthrough could make detecting disease far easier

... in their work the researchers found that although ordinary metal wire would not guide T-rays very well, if a series of tiny grooves was cut into the wire, it would do so much more effectively.

Tumor wizardry wards off attacks from the immune system

...lled regulatory T cells, or T-reg for short. Under ordinary circumstances, T-reg cells inhibit immune components responsible for killing unwanted cells -- this allows T-reg cells to help prevent autoimmune reactions.

Loosen leash on cancer protein 'watchdog,' researchers say
