If that’s not bad enough, pregnant women with periodontal disease are seven times more likely to deliver low-birth-weight, preterm babies. Pro...

Antibiotic might fight HIV-induced neurological problems

...myotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, stroke and more. The drug is being tested in early clinical trials for some non-HIV-related conditions. "Last year we discovered that SIV triggers some of the same biological pathways of cell death and inflammation as these other diseases," says Sheila Bar...

Multi-purpose protein regulates new protein synthesis and immune cell development

...ctivated in many diseases from viral infections to stroke to Alzheimer's disease," says Kezhong Zhang, Ph.D., a senior research associate in biological chemistry and first author of the paper. "All these things disrupt protein folding and put stress on the cell. By doing so, they activate the UPR." Several...

Brain-injury rehabilitation depends on acetylcholine circuitry

...bility of the brain to recover from such injury as stroke or trauma depends on a particular circuitry of neurons that "talk" to one another using the brain chemical acetylcholine, researchers led by James Conner and Mark Tuszynski in the Neural repair Group at UCSD have discovered. Their finding in rats cou...

...inal cord injuries, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, stroke and burns. Most scientists believe that stem cells from human embryos are the most versatile type of stem cell because they have the potential to form any cell or tissue in the body. But they are also exploring the potential of stem cells from adult...
