Identified main genetic variants involved in response to HIV

... role in the control of viral infection. Results point to two gene variants related to the immune system. More precisely, these variations are in a genetic region responsible for the determination of immune response capacity against a number of infectious diseases, including AIDS. These variations are lo...

Scientists measured the difference at a point called median lifespan, when half the control mice had died of natural causes associated with aging. “This is the first time to my knowledge when an agent has been shown to extend median life span in three laboratories,” says Miller, professor of...

Very few researchers have carried out longitudinal studies on the evolution of genetic variety in a population. Th...

Gene therapy study shows safety and statistically significant improvement in Parkinson's disease

...reover, the absence of change at the earliest time point following treatment suggests that the improvement was not likely due to the surgical lesioning of the targeted brain region, as surgical approaches typically give rise to immediate, short-lasting benefit around the time of surgery, while prior studie...

Unlike plants that have long growth cycles, "with mushrooms, we can use commercial technology to convert the veget...

Mule deer moms rescue other fawns

But while the study's findings seem to point to mule deer as superior mothers, the motivation for looking out for other fawns is likely based not on altruism but on simple survival, said Lingle. "Having a rigid and aggressive response to the simple sound of a fawn distress call may ensure ef...

Better insight into brain anatomical structures

The researchers hope that their new contrast agent will allow better research and diagnosis of brain diseases involving the CNS (central ner...

Arctic ice retreating more quickly than computer models project

However, it is important to point out that because PIs are the first-line drugs used to treat HIV infection in infants in the United States, PI-containing treatment was still effective in controlling the NNRTI-resistant virus in the infants in this study.

The conclusions point out that Neanderthal populations did suffer fluctuations related to climate changes before the first Homo Sapiens arrived in the Iberian Peninsula. Cold, arid and highly variable climate was the least favourable weather for Neanderthals and 24,000 ye...

In their analysis, the OSU scientists point out that evolution is not a precise or perfect process - it takes time, is constrained by historic changes and compromises, and does not always allow a species to adapt in a way that meets rapidly changing conditions.
