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. ...

'Exercise pill' switches on gene that tells cells to burn fat

By giving ordinary adult mice a drug - a synthetic designed to mimic fat - Salk Institute scientist Dr. Ronald M. Evans is now able to chemically switch on PPAR-d, the master regulator that controls the ability of cells to burn fat. Even when the mice are not active, ...

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. The UF project is "bold" because it takes a comprehensive view of regenerat...

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. If such a corrugated metal wire is then tapered to a point it becomes possible to very efficiently transport radiati...

Mass vaccination unnecessary in the event of a large bioterrorist US smallpox attack

Although acting upon the same target on the influenza virus as existing treatments, the new drug molecules being developed are specific for a part of the virus that is unable to mutate (change), which means it should be impossible for...

Diabetes hits 275 Australians each day as pandemic spreads

..., said the research findings sent a "Red Alert" to ordinary Australians and to those charged with responsibility for public health. "With 275 new cases of diabetes and 600 cases of obesity occurring each day, we now have compelling proof that Australia's diabetes epidemic is in full flight." Professor Zimmet...

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. The scientists discovered that cancerous cells take advantage of T-reg cells' suppressor ab...

The researchers used 4-Tesla fMRI, which has a very strong magnetic field, to observe the brain activity of 20 elderly patients with amnestic MCI and 20 age-matched controls with no memory impairment during a memory task t...

Loosen leash on cancer protein 'watchdog,' researchers say
