Genetic roots of bipolar disorder revealed by first genome-wide study of illness

... and clinicians need more options so that they can tailor treatments to each patient. People inherit different gene variations, which may influence whether or not they respond to a given medication. Identifying and targeting these variations could help scientists develop additional medication options that...

Biodegradable microspheres deliver time release vaccines, stimulate different immune response

Scientists clone mice from adult skin stem cells

...n the future to use a patient's skin stem cells to tailor make embryonic stem cell lines, circumventing the problem of immune rejection. Such stem cells might also be used to study a variety of different diseases, for which patient tissue is often hard to come by. "There are many diseases, such as li...

Genes and biomarkers that allow doctors to choose the right therapy for the right patient

... "We need better ways to identify how we can best tailor existing therapies to individuals and how to target experimental agents." Gray and his colleagues have developed a system to evaluate drug response comprised of a panel of 50 breast cancer cell lines. Each of these cell lines represents a single v...

Gene hunters close in on Lou Gehrig’s disease

...p us to better understand sporadic ALS but also to tailor tools that will reveal therapies for it.? Traynor cautioned that the 34 SNPs are not guaranteed trail markers for ALS genes. “If you roll dice 555,352 times, you are bound to get lucky by chance alone on some of those throws,?he says. “The next st...

Ultrathin films deliver DNA as possible gene therapy tool

...A bigger arsenal of tools may allow researchers to tailor films for specific applications. In addition to delivering DNA from stents, Lynn envisions using these nanoscale films to deliver DNA from other implantable devices. The films may also improve methods for engineering lab-grown tissues, in which pre...

Faster, low cost sequencing technologies needed to drive era of personalized medicine

...dical care. The reduced cost may allow doctors to tailor medical treatments to an individual's genetic profile for diagnosing, treating, and ultimately preventing many common diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and obesity. ASU chemist Peiming Zhang and his collaborator Jian Gu have been a...

'Protecting virus' offers instant flu protection and converts flu infections into their own vaccines

...ive it as a preventive measure without the need to tailor it to a particular flu strain or mutation. This has obvious benefits when dealing with the sudden outbreak of a major epidemic, as one would not need to know the exact make up of the new strain before deploying the protecting virus making it much mor...

Study highlights new and cheaper way to treat heroin addiction

...reatments available so that doctors and nurses can tailor medication to the needs of each patient. "Methadone should still be used to treat the majority of patients withdrawing from heroin and requiring maintenance treatment, but dihydrocodeine offers an alternative treatment for those who can’t tolerat...

Nanoparticle assembly enters the fast lane

... and treating disease. Learning how to control and tailor the assembly of these miniscule particles into larger functional systems remains a major challenge for scientists. The Brookhaven results, published online on October 11, 2006, by the Journal of the American Chemical Society, are a step in that direc...

Spelling out cancer on the nanoscale

...ses during their treatment, allowing clinicians to tailor treatments to individual patients. Finally, we provide a high throughput method to identify if new cancer drugs are effective at targeting specific oncoproteins." ...

Potato blight pathogenicity explained by genome plasticity

..., and it provides insight into how plant pathogens tailor their genomes to adapt to their environments. The potato late blight pathogen, known to scientists as Phytophthora infestans , is a fungus-like organism that was responsible for the Irish Potato Famine of the 1840s and continues to cause devastatin...

Secrets of the sea yield stronger artificial bone

...In the future, the Berkeley Lab scientists hope to tailor the scaffolding so that it fosters bone tissue regeneration. To do this, the space between the scaffolding's layers can be filled with an organic polymer that degrades over the span of several weeks, liberating antibiotics and compounds that stimulat...
