...d and that bone density loss may not be completely reversible after discontinuation of the drug. The FDA warning states: “Depo-Provera Contraceptive Injection should be used as a long-term birth control method (e.g. longer than 2 years) only if other birth control methods are inadequate.?The black box warning ...

50-year-old Mystery Solved: Protein Tags Regulate Key Ion Channel

...he book of how cells control ion channel function: reversible peptide linkage." Ion channels are in every cell in the human body. They are tightly controlled tunnels through the membrane barriers that hold in the cell's contents, separating the cell from the outside world. Ion channels allow ions such as potas...

Buying Time Through Hibernation on Demand

...enter have, for the first time, induced a state of reversible metabolic hibernation in mice. This achievement, the first demonstration of "hibernation on demand" in a mammal, ultimately could lead to new ways to treat cancer and prevent injury and death from insufficient blood supply to organs and tissues.

DNA constraints control structure of attached macromolecules

... macromolecules with DNA constraints can be either reversible or irreversible, depending on which chemical trigger is used. Like a switch, a particular molecular shape could be turned on and off. "Another key aspect of DNA constraints is their programmability," Silverman said. "By placing two or more constrain...

Study shows eutrophic lakes may not recover for a millennium

... report says. "This type of eutrophication is not reversible unless there are substantial changes in soil management," Carpenter writes in PNAS. The amount of phosphorus that runs into the lake in any given year is small, the Wisconsin scientist notes, but a little bit of the nutrient is all that is needed to ...

Out of sight, out of mind? Not necessarily

... For the study, the researchers induced temporary, reversible blindness lasting only a fraction of a second in nine volunteers with normal vision. Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), a harmless noninvasive technique using brief magnetic pulses, was applied to the volunteers' visual cortex -- the area at th...

Limiting the damage in stroke

"The unique advantage of this system is that we can specifically induce or block this signaling pathway at virtually any time and selectively in neurons," Wirth emphasizes. Putting all of thi...

Hormonal male contraception reversible after few months for all men

... of THE LANCET highlight how such contraception is reversible within a few months. Currently available male contraceptive methods (condoms, withdrawal, and vasectomy) are not acceptable to many couples because they are either not sufficiently reliable or not easily reversible. In a similar way to ovulation sup...

Next, borrowing a page from gene therapy, the researchers injected mice with a kind of molecular magic bullet (using transgenic techniques and a virus) that selectively turned off BDNF expression in the social...

Quitting smoking improves lung function considerably

...said Dr. Thomson. "It demonstrates that there is a reversible component to the harmful effects of smoking on the airways in asthma." "The degree of improvement noted for smoking cessation far exceeds that of high-dose anti-inflammatory treatment, such as oral prednisolone, 40 mg daily for 2 weeks, which had ...
