Gene variations explain drug dose required to control seizures

...macogenetics, a center of the IGSP. If the genes' predictive value is verified in clinical trials, such a "pharmacogenetic" approach might make it possible to safely reduce the time required for patients with epilepsy and their physicians to reach an effective dose of the medications that control seizures, sai...

They also looked for genes that showed different expression patterns over the two years based on patient response, time passed, and patient response over time. These analyses identified genes that increased activi...

Measuring Enzymes At End Of Cancer Pathway Predicts Outcome Of Tarceva, Taxol

...ve use of Tarceva," he says. The only experimental predictive test currently available is whether lung cancer cells have a mutation in their epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), but that does not predict response to the targeted therapy in other forms of cancer, Ueno says. "We find here that as long as CDK...

...euroscience from passive observation…to active and predictive manipulation of behavior," the Cell authors write. Miesenböck also says "one could use this method to restore neural signals that have been lost" due to injury or disease, such as in spinal cord trauma, although he notes that the possibility is "far...

Study shows humans have ability to track odors, much like bloodhounds

What's more, another area of the brain outside the olfactory cortex was very active during successful localization. This area, the superior temporal gyrus,...

Rensselaer researchers develop approach that predicts protein separation behavior
