...mans. "This is a receptor that wasn't on anyone's radar screen from a fertility standpoint," says Jerold Chun, M.D., Ph.D., who conducted the study with his research associate Xiaoqin Ye, M.D., Ph.D., and their colleagues at The University of Tokyo, Washington State University, and the Fred Hutchinson Can...

Compound might defeat African sleeping sickness, clinical trial beginning this month

... developing countries often fly beneath the profit radar of large pharmaceutical companies," Tidwell said. "That's because large companies require a high return on their investments, which means they don't have sufficient incentives to develop low-cost drugs. Despite being one of Africa's most prevalent an...

The synapse is a shotgun

...said Sejnowski. "There's just nothing solid on our radar screen right now," he said. "There is speculation that ectopic release represents some sort of spillover that neurons use under certain circumstances. Or, it may be an alternative mode of neurotransmission that neurons use at different points in thei...

Boosting newborns' immune responses

...rtain white blood cells. Functioning like an early radar system, TLRs detect the presence of invading bacteria and viruses and trigger production of "danger signals" ?proteins known as cytokines that trigger other immune cells to mount a defense against the infection. People have 10 different kinds of TLRs...

Researchers develop portable 'vein finder' for faster, more accurate injections

...g wavelengths and frequency. For example, a police radar gun sends microwave signals to a moving car, and when signals bounce back, the change in their frequency provides a measurement used to determine the vehicle's speed. Doppler ultrasound is similar, except that acoustical waves are transmitted. Comp...
