"The data show a huge protective effect," adds co-investigator Dr. Craik, who cautioned that this is still a preliminary finding but nonetheless in line with a number of other recent findings about lifestyle effects on dementia. The team is working on a follow-u...

UBC researchers reveal dwarf aquatic plants' hidden ancestry

Due to their narrow, pointed leaves, botanists had long viewed Hydatellaceae as monocots, a large and diver...

Cancer vaccines -- Taking a jab at cancer by stimulating the immune system

... the University of Louisville. Their findings also show that the vaccine offers significant cross-protection for HPV types 45 and 31. The study follows 1113 women between the ages of 15 and 25 in North America and Brazil randomized to receive three doses of either the vaccine or the control. The vacc...

Protein sensor for fatty acid buildup in mitochondria

... of Sciences (PNAS). "The results of this study show how and where a critical biochemical pathway for fatty acid breakdown is controlled by a specific enzyme," said Charles Rock, Ph.D., a member of the Infectious Diseases department at St. Jude. "It offers an explanation of why the absence of this enzy...

Finnish scientists discovered a new approach to treat virus-induced lymphomas

...their wt p53 status. Moreover, the researchers show that Nutlin-3a has striking anti-tumor activity in vivo in a mouse xenograft model for the PEL. Nutlin-3a treatment resulted in a marked regression of all tumors in the treated animals in two weeks. These results demonstrate that p53 reactivation via...

Breakthrough in understanding type-2 diabetes as key genes identified
