HIV Patients May Be at Risk of Heart Problems When Taking Protease Inhibitor Drugs

...ncourage physicians to be especially thorough when performing medical exams, and in taking patient histories to be alert for signs of heart rhythm disturbances. Implications of the Findings "In no way does it mean patients shouldn't receive protease inhibitors," says Andrew Badley, M.D., associate director of...

By performing electrophysiological analysis of cells that constitute the central circadian clock, the researchers made a surprising discovery: one part of the clock mechanism, represented by a dorsal (upper) group of cells, exhibited oscillations in activity that ...

The lopsided brain: Attention bias is shared by humans and birds

...ries may offer benefits in spatial learning and in performing simultaneous spatial tasks, such as looking for food while being vigilant for predators. The researchers include Bettina Diekamp and Onur Güntürkün of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany; Lucia Regolin of University of Padova, Italy; and Giorgio Va...

Two chemicals boost immune cells' ability to fight HIV without gene therapy

...le HIV must constantly divide in order to continue performing their protective functions. The massive amount of division prematurely shortens these cells' ends, or telomeres, ultimately exhausting the immune system. UCLA's previous research shows that telomerase rejuvenates the telomeres and allows the immune ...

Gambling monkeys give insight into neural machinery of risk
