Brain inflammation may be friend, not foe, for Alzheimer's patients

...zheimer’s disease compared to healthy people. It’s recognized as a critical player in bringing about much of the brain damage that follows a stroke and brain injury, so it’s no surprise that its presence in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients would be assumed to be part of the problem. In the original develop...

The insect vector always bites twice

... of the threat from vector-borne diseases has been recognized and the problem is prompting research scientists to take a strong interest. Most of these infections, classified as emerging or re-emerging diseases, are linked to ecosystem changes, climatic variations or pressure from human activities. Malaria, sle...

A new plant-bacterial symbiotic mechanism promising for crop applications

...prising result calls into question the universally recognized model of molecular communication that initiates the rhizobia-legume symbiosis. This common model requires the presence of several nod genes which allow synthesis of the Nod factor, a compound elaborated by the bacterium which enables the plant to rec...

Mice with a migraine show signs of brain damage

...ury as well as migraine. While it’s been widely recognized that CSD underlies some migraines, Nedergaard’s team linked the phenomenon for the first time to both severe hypoxia and to damage to brain cells. As a result of CSD, the team found changes to the synapses, the connections between brain cells known a...

Molecule that destroys bone also protects it, new research shows

...y at Buffalo has shown. The component, IL-17, was recognized only in the past 18 months to be a primary cause of bone destruction and inflammation in autoimmune diseases. Therapies that target IL-17 or its cellular receptor currently are being developed. However, a UB molecular biologist has discovered that...

Herpes infection may be symbiotic, help beat back some bacteria

Genetic fingerprints identify brain tumors' origins

... that predispose children to PAs. "It should be recognized that the genetic alterations in this tumor may be very subtle," Gutmann notes. "When we looked at gene activity levels in the tumors as a function of brain location, though, a very interesting pattern began to emerge." Cells in different parts of ...

Changes in amino acids in the 1918 influenza virus cut transmission
