Alzheimer's disease to quadruple worldwide by 2050

...heimer’s disease would result in a smaller overall reduction of 9.2 million cases by 2050, because slower disease progression would mean more people surviving with early-stage disease symptoms. However, nearly all of that decline would be attributable to decreases in those needing costly late-stage disease tre...

Experimental gene therapy 'abolishes' arthritis pain and lessens joint damage

...the therapy also brought about a nearly 35 percent reduction in permanent structural to joints caused by round and after round of osteoarthritic inflammation.

Pistachios lower cholesterol, provide antioxidants

... from the 3-ounce pistachio diet correlated with a reduction in oxidized LDL which may indicate that the lutein in pistachio nuts improves the risk of cardiovascular disease by reducing serum oxidized LDL. "Our study has shown that pistachios, eaten with a heart healthy diet, may decrease a person's CVD ris...

Statin treatment improves spatial memory in mouse models of Alzheimer's

Gene mutation linked to cognition is found only in humans

...t, type I-specific splicing site and a significant reduction in type I neuropsin expression in human and chimpanzee when compared with the rhesus macaque, an Old World monkey.

High-dose anticlotting drug cuts heart attack, death risk in half

... (600 mg or more) was associated with a 50 percent reduction in the risk of cardiac death or nonfatal heart attack, both during the initial hospitalization and within 30 days of the PCI procedure, a finding that was highly statistically significant (p=0.009). There was no statistically significant increase in ...

Parasites' impact goes beyond host to affect ecosystem

...ls, and infected snails -- they similarly saw less reduction of ephemeral algae by infected snails. But when researchers isolated ephemeral, or edible, algae, "we saw dramatic change," says Byers.

Scripps research study shows humans and plants share common regulatory pathway

...1. "Inhibiting HSP90 resulted in a significant reduction of Nod1 protein levels," Ulevitch said. "That clearly suggests that this protein plays a key role in stabilizing Nod1 and protecting it from degradation. In contrast, turning off SGT1 did not alter levels of Nod1." In an earlier study, Ulevitch’s...

Genetically obese mice exhibited increased XOR activity and urate in the adipose tissue. Urate is a salt derived from uric acid. "Our results identify XOR as a potential therapeutic target f...

'Marathon mice' elucidate little-known muscle type

...rs were surprised to find that the fibers showed a reduction in I, IIA, and IIB MHCs and as much as a 5-fold increase in IIX MHC. Nearly 100% of muscle fibers in the transgenic animals contained abundant MHC IIX mRNA and protein, they found, as compared to only 15%?0% in normal animals. PGC-1â also changed...
