Unexpected lock and key mechanism found for the assembly of tumor blood vessels

...disrupting its ability to form blood vessels could starve the tumor and stave off cancer." The research team discovered that the integrin brought the endothelia, the inside part of a blood vessel, together to bind with vascular smooth muscle, the outer portion of a blood vessel. Blood vessels only work whe...

Purdue scientists may have found key to halting spinal cord damage

...e the cause of brain damage. But, in fact, you can starve the nervous tissue of oxygen for up to an hour without harm if only you control the acrolein levels," Shi said. "This paper suggests that the body is generally pretty resilient but that acrolein may be something it can't handle." Shi said that some ...

Bees, Brains and Addiction

Caloric restriction won't dramatically extend life span in humans: UCLA research

...; but restrict their intake by 60 percent and they starve to death. "Humans, in contrast, will not have rodent-like results from dramatically restricting calories," he said.

MIT engineers an anti-cancer smart bomb

..." the theory that cutting off the blood supply can starve tumors to death. That strategy can backfire, however, because it also starves tumor cells of oxygen, prompting them to create new blood vessels and instigate metastasis and other self-survival activities. The next obvious solution would be combining...

Potential treatments for neurofibromatosis

... and their proteins in ways that they believe will starve the tumors.

Growth in the sea comes down to a struggle for iron

...tiny marine plants continue to grow. They begin to starve in the midst of plenty, acting as though iron, an essential nutrient, still is in short supply.
