Air travel and flu: Post-9/11 restrictions delayed start of season

... of spread of flu. This does not prove that travel restriction would be effective in altering the course of a flu pandemic, but it does provide evidence that air travel plays a significant role in the annual spread of flu in the United States. The findings will help plan for the next flu pandemic. ...

Cutting calories slightly can reduce aging damage

...portance because it shows a mild degree of caloric restriction - just enough to prevent weight gain with advancing age - can have beneficial effects against aging. From a scientific perspective, he added, it is important to learn that RNA is a very good marker of aging damage. "I'd never really thought about RN...

Diabetes research takes wing thanks to long-lived fruit fly

...is also involved in determining life span. Caloric restriction ?limiting the calories an organism ingests ?generally increases lifespan in organisms ranging from worms to flies, and maybe humans. Somehow, JNK and the insulin receptor together seem to work in tandem to affect life span. "We're learning that an o...

Study supports 'urgent' need for worldwide ban on lead-based paint

...people. In Singapore, which enforces the same lead restriction on new paint as the United States, lead levels were significantly lower. "Paint manufacturers are aggressively marketing lead-based paints in countries without lead content restrictions," says Clark, professor of environmental health at UC. "In som...

UCLA paper examines how one disease may prevent another

...seases that benefit from severe caloric or protein restriction include kidney failure, type-II diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease and morbid obesity. Overall, Stiehm proposed that new evidence can be found for using certain viruses to treat diseases such as HIV, which do not respond to other medications. "T...

New technique multiplies life span in simple organisms

...- when the SIR2 deletion was combined with caloric restriction and/or a mutation in one or two genes, RAS2 and SCH9, that control the storage of nutrients and resistance to cell damage. Human cells with reduced SIR2 activity also appear to confirm that SIR2 has a pro-aging effect, Longo said, although those res...

New clues to the dark side of a key anti-tumor guardian

...suggesting that decreased p53 activity and calorie restriction may influence lifespan through a common molecular mechanism. Because neurons are less prone to tumor formation than other cell types, and because disruption of p53 activity in neurons was sufficient to extend lifespan in the fruit fly, the new findi...

Biotechnology's newest chemical tool

...erases will become a standard laboratory tool like restriction endonucleases. Earlier studies had suggested that the transfer of chemical groups larger than a methyl group would not be possible, in part because replacing AdoMet's methyl group lowered the chemical reactivity of the compound. To overcome this pro...

NHGRI expands effort to revolutionize sequencing technologies

... addition, they will use optical mapping to create restriction maps to help assemble the genome once it is sequenced. The group will then demonstrate how to combine the sequence and maps into distinct haplotype sequences. Gregory L. Timp, Ph.D., University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. $2.1 million (3 years)...

Researchers find how some antibiotics kill bacteria

...nt of bacterial resistance. "There is a voluntary restriction on the use of rifamycins in treating infections other than tuberculosis and meningitis due to the fear of spread of resistant mutations," said Vladimir Svetlov, a study co-author and a research associate in microbiology at Ohio State.
