Stem cell treatment improves mobility after spinal cord injury

...yelin is capable of regenerating, which ultimately restores sensory and motor activity. Oswald Steward, Gabriel I. Nistor, Giovanna Bernal, Minodora Totiu, Frank Cloutier and Kelly Sharp also participated in the study, which was supported by the Geron Corp., a UC Discovery grant, Research for Cure, the Roman...

Nose odors and mouth odors: The brain distinguishes

...stem--blocks flavor perception. Releasing the nose restores the sense of flavor in the mouth. "The fact that the olfactory referral illusion is maintained even though the subject is now aware that the experience is related to an event in the nose demonstrates that olfactory referral is robust and cognitively...

Feeling old?

... may be affected. While adding leucine to the diet restores protein building there was no knowledge about this supplement's effect on breakdown. To address this, researchers compared protein breakdown in young (8-month) and old (22-month) rats. They discovered that the slow down in degradation that normally ...

New insights into neural tube defects

...cell distribute asymmetrically. This distribution restores polarity in the daughter cell, directing them to migrate to the midline of the neural tube. ...

Mice lacking social memory molecule take bullying in stride

...uggest that chronic treatment with antidepressants restores social approach behaviors partly by interfering with the cascade of activity triggered by BDNF as the organism adapts to experience. The researchers say the study "suggests new directions for antidepressant drug discovery." ...

Scientists re-engineer a well-known antibiotic to counter drug resistance

...ancomycin analogue with a molecular structure that restores much of the drug's binding ability could potentially lead to the development of a new generation of antibiotics that could prove far more effective against vancomycin-resistant infections than what is available today." The most common strains of VR...

One in 14 men having a heart attack drive themselves to hospital

... aspirin and to receive reperfusion therapy, which restores blood flow to the heart. Approximately 120 nurses working across the six coronary care units in Dublin, Southern Ireland, took part in the study, completing a 25-item questionnaire for each patient admitted during the one-year study. Only patie...

Proteins spur diabetic mice models to grow blood vessels, nerves

...the test tube and into animals by demonstrating it restores nerve and blood vessel growth in mice. The research has particularly important implications for the estimated 21 million Americans with diabetes, a disease that damages both nerves and blood vessels. The therapy involves netrins, a family of protei...

Johns Hopkins lab scientists tame overactive CF protein

... majority of CF patients, but quieting the protein restores the cells' ability to transport chloride in and out, researchers found. The inability to transport chloride is the hallmark of CF that causes dangerous buildup of thick, sticky mucous in several organs, including the pancreas and the lungs, leading t...

Epidemic of unneeded amputations

...orp. (NASDAQ: SPNC), vaporizes arterial blockages, restores blood flow, and this surgery promotes wound healing, often enabling patients to leave the hospital the next day. CLiRpath has been the subject of rigorous clinical trials, with limb salvage observed in 95 percent of patients surviving to six months(1...

Schepens scientists are first to discover angiogenesis switch inside blood vessel cells

...ess that can be both good and bad for the body. It restores blood flow after injury, prepares a woman's body for pregnancy and increases circulation in a damaged heart. But, it can also nourish cancer tumors and damage delicate retinal tissues when uncontrolled. The angiogenic process is triggered by what ...

Gene linked to rare disease activates fat breakdown

... of normal CGI-58 in cells having the CDS mutation restores lipid breakdown and reverses the abnormal triglyceride accumulation typical of patients with the lipid storage disease. "These data establish an important biochemical function for CGI-58 in the lipolytic degradation of fat, implicating this lipolysi...

Gene therapy research switches off joint inflammation; switches on genetic process of joint repair

...ich is responsible for growing human cartilage and restores joint function while blocking joint destruction associated with inflammation. The IRA is the preeminent meeting for inflammation investigators. Mark J.S. Miller, Ph.D., M.B.A., Professor of Cardiovascular Sciences and Pediatrics at Albany Medical Co...

UCLA scientists design masks to hide genetic mutations from cell

...vents the cell from seeing the genetic defects and restores splicing to the correct location in the gene. IMPACT: The laboratory findings suggest a powerful new approach for treating cancer and other diseases caused by genetic mutations. The researchers?next step will be to test their findings in a mous...

Salk scientists hammer out a pathway that promotes muscle cell survival in mice

...up a cell’s ability to maintain healthy muscle and restores normal muscle function in genetically engineered mice with weak muscles. The study, published online in Nature Medicine, is the first to explore the part this enzyme plays in a cascade of events triggered by exercise-induced hormones and other signal...
