Wisconsin scientists grow critical nerve cells

...ons in chicken embryos. While the new results are promising and provide access to critical cells that may one day be used in therapy, it will likely be many years before they can be tested in humans, Zhang says. ...

Study Demonstrates Gene Expression Microarrays are Comparable and Reproducible

...tocols are carefullyfollowed,?said Jacobson. These promising results will allow this sameresearch group to proceed with a larger gene expression analysis of 600stage I lung adenocarcinomas, with the hopes of confirming a previousassociation between gene expression profiles and patient outcome.This project is a...

Novel Enzyme Shows Potential As An Anti-HIV Target

...tic activity, inhibiting SIRT1 could prove to be a promising anti-HIV therapy. Future study will have to verify whether inhibiting SIRT1 can successfully put the brakes on HIV transcription and control the virus (See also “A New Paradigm in Eukaryotic Biology: HIV Tat and the Control of Transcriptional Elonga...

Gene therapy converts dead bone graft to new, living tissue

...o treating the foreign splint as living bone, is a promising development for the thousands of cancer and trauma patients each year who suffer with fragile and failing bone grafts. The findings were posted online Feb. 13 and will appear in the March 1 issue of Nature Medicine. The procedure, designed by a team...

Novel Therapy Tested in Mice Could Chase Away Cat Allergies

...e now. In the future, the investigators say, these promising results could lead to a new therapy not only for human cat allergies, but also possibly for severe food allergies such as those to peanuts. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health,...

Scientists rid stem cell culture of key animal cells

...of potential contamination for the therapeutically promising cells. The new findings, appear today (Feb. 17) in the journal Nature Methods and come on the heels of a recent University of California study showing that existing stem cell lines are already contaminated with an animal molecule. The potential thre...

Gene Therapy For Parkinson's Disease Moves Forward In Animals

...perimental evidence that suggests that it can be a promising approach to this disease using in vivo gene therapy, which is very applicable to humans. It even presents theoretical reasons that might solve some of the safety issues that have been raised about GDNF. But many things remain that we still don't unde...

Researchers add new tool to tumor-treatment arsenal

...patients, rapamycin and its derivatives have shown promising anti-tumor activity in phase I and II clinical trials. RAD001 lowers the amount of DNA-damaging agent needed by blocking p53's DNA-repair function, automatically killing the cancer cells when agents like cisplatin are introduced. "These findings pr...

An entropy-based gene selection method for cancer classification using microarray data

...ing classifiers based on gene expression data is a promising approach; yet the selection of non-redundant but relevant genes is difficult. The selected gene set should be small enough to allow diagnosis even in regular clinical laboratories and ideally identify genes involved in cancer-specific regulatory path...
