Common blood test can help distinguish between mononucleosis and tonsillitis

...nfectious mononucleosis and bacterial tonsillitis, potentially guiding treatment decisions, according to an article in the January issue of Archives of Otolaryngology–Head & Neck Surgery, one of the JAMA/Archives journals. Acute tonsillitis (inflammation of the tonsils) and infectious mononucleosis (caused ...

Xie Lab demonstrates the role of microRNA pathway

...ll RNAs responsible for stem cell regulation could potentially be used to control stem cell functions in vivo and stem cell expansion in vitro." "We are in the process of identifying the microRNAs that are important for stem cell self-renewal," said Dr. Xie. "Understanding the mechanisms controlling stem cell...

Einstein's tea leaves inspire new blood separation technique

...at the microscopic level without any moving parts, potentially allowing doctors to do blood tests without sending samples to a laboratory. The new method uses the same principle that causes tea leaves to accumulate at the center of the bottom in a stirred teacup, a phenomenon first explained by Einstein in the 1...

Cancer researchers add spice to research against rare neuromuscular disease

...co-factors are known, offering many new targets to potentially stop conditions like Kennedy's disease that involve the receptor itself. Chang's work has led to an understanding of the genetic basis of Kennedy's disease, which affects the motor neurons that go from the spine to certain muscles, causing muscle ...

Small molecule dervived from Rb2/p130 could act as cancer therapeutic

...ical drug in large quantities and does not require potentially dangerous means of delivery like viruses, as do most gene therapies; therefore Spa310 has a good chance to succeed as an anti-cancer therapy. For these reasons, he believes it may be easier to get approval for clinical trials. "Fifteen years afte...

Study uncovers a lethal secret of 1918 influenza virus

UCLA/Toronto researchers unlock key to memory storage in brain

...its memories," he explained. "This approach could potentially be used to preserve memory in people suffering from Alzheimer's or other brain injury. We may be able to guide memories into healthy cells and away from sick cells in dying regions of the brain." Our memories define who we are, so learning how ...

Protein found to shield pancreatic cancer cells from self-destruction

...ivating protein PKC, or both, presents a novel and potentially effective approach to treating patients with pancreatic cancer," Lopez-Berestein said. Research in the mouse model remains in the early stages, the researchers caution. The researchers also show that the TG2 pathway also is separate from another, ...

The end result is a product that is potentially more addictive. examine all market categories -- finding that smoke nicotine yields were increased in the cigarettes of each of the four major manufacturers and across all the major cigarette market categories (e.g. mentholated, non-mentholated...

Scientists unlock mystery of embryonic stem cell signaling pathway

...rs,?Kahn says. “If you use them into humans, you’d potentially have a horrible immune response.? And so, in order to take any eventual stem cell-based treatments from the laboratory to the clinic, there needs to be a way to keep the cells growing and dividing without the use of mouse fibroblasts. The discovery...

Largest genomic search finds genes that may contribute to autism

...autism. The new finding suggests that the gene is potentially important in autism. "As for the chromosome 11 location, we think there is another susceptibility gene there and we are actively pursuing it. We are in the neighborhood and have a plan to find it." Dawson, who directs the UW's Autism Center an...

Antibody signal may redirect inflammation to fuel cancer

...sts report discovering an apparent trigger to this potentially deadly process. Typically, the "innate" immune system's Pac-Man-like white blood cells, or leukocytes, engulf and destroy invading microbes when receptors on their surface receive a signal from serum in the blood -- often an antibody produced by a ...

Will the plague pathogen become resistant to antibiotics?

...ad range of livestock, antibiotic resistance could potentially spread to other Y. pestis and also other bacterial pathogens. In a paper published March 21 in the new journal PLoS ONE, the authors say this possibility "represents a significant public health concern." Genetic ability to disable antibiotics, inc...

DNA analysis reveals rapid population shift among Pleistocene cave bears
