Novel Therapy Tested in Mice Could Chase Away Cat Allergies

... mice were “passively allergic?to cats: they would react to cat protein only after the scientists first injected them with human allergic antibodies to cats. When these mice were then injected with cat allergen, GFD blocked the allergic reaction involving the human cell receptors, an indication that it mig...

NC State scientist finds soft tissue in T. rex bones

...arch shows that antibodies that recognize collagen react to chemical extracts of this fossil bone. If further studies confirm this, we may have the potential to learn more not only about the dinosaurs themselves, but also about how and why they were preserved in the first place." The research was funded b...

Implanted Devices Detect High-Risk Heart Failure Patients

...bility -- whose hearts are unable to appropriately react to external stimuli by regulating their beating action -- are known to be at higher risk of suffering a heart attack. The new insight from CRT-D devices is possible because they record detailed data on heart function 24 hours a day. These new findin...

Stem Cell Research Shows Potential for Replacing Tissue Damaged in Heart Attacks

...r example, we still don’t know if human cells will react in the same way,?Dr. Lough says. He notes, however, that the research has achieved unprecedented levels of success in this area. Dr. Lough’s laboratory currently is developing support to expand these findings in several areas that will provide addit...

Microscopes at microscopic size

...o develop new treatments by studying the way cells react to a drug. The biochips also raise the possibility of a micro-laboratory, the size of a credit card, which would be able to perform medical diagnostics, improving patient treatment by reducing the number of hospital visits needed for tests.

Newly Discovered 'Branding' Process Helps Immune System Cells Pick Their Fights

...ed the chances that various types of T cells would react to the modified peptides shown to them by antigen-presenting cells. Unanue's group is working to substantiate their findings and explore their potential relevance to different areas of biomedical research. He notes that insulin-producing beta cells,...

Alarm pheromone causes aphids to sprout wings

...s into flying away. However, aphids were shown to react mainly to the frequency of pheromone release and not the actual quantity present, possibly to avoid manipulation by plants. Thus, to reduce damage caused by aphids, the major insect pests in Europe, it may prove effective to apply pulses of alarm phe...

How exactly does the brain control breathing?

...tral surface of the brain allows them to sense and react to changes in the pH of the cerebrospinal fluid; this is deemed an essential property of a central chemoreceptor. Richerson, on the other hand, stipulates that central chemoreceptors are found close to the midline blood vessels of the brainstem allow...

Currently entering a third phase of study, a model of the Amazon River and floodplain will be combined with estimates of future deforestation to understand how humans may be affecting the Amazon. Coe says, "Th...

Missing Receptor Molecule Causes Tumor Growth

...." It was proven in further tests that these cells react particularly badly to TRAIL. This proves that the missing receptor and not the missing signal can contribute significantly to tumor growth. Silenced Genes Further tests proved why there was such a small number of receptors. Prof. Krainer: "There can...
