New Lab Research May Help Those Deafened By Immune System Attack

...kly if steroids could help them, or if they can be spared the drugs' harsh side effects. It may also expand the definition of the condition, known as autoimmune sensorineural hearing loss or AISNHL, and help more people get a firm diagnosis of what's causing their mysterious hearing loss.

...lcoholics with controls, that's not different in a spared area of the brain," Dr Dodd said. "In that way we can start to find those messages that show altered expression in the area of the brain that shows the pathology."

Pain killer fights breast cancer by targeting key enzyme

... in other tissues that rely on the enzyme could be spared if a nimesulide analog was taken as a drug." He said that the next step is to study how the analogs affect other types of tissues to make sure that nimesulide's aromatase-inhibiting effects are truly isolated to breast tissue. "Then we need to con...

Cloned stem cells prove identical to fertilized stem cells

...umber of stem cells in the blastocyst appear to be spared this faulty reprogramming. When stem cells from a cloned blastocyst are removed and placed into a dish, most die. A few, however, survive and give rise to an embryonic stem cell line, and these appear to be thoroughly reprogrammed. Researchers have...
