Researchers discover inherited mutation for leukemia

... gene in the pathogenesis of CLL, and direct us to target this gene with therapies that might re-activate it." The findings also provide evidence that some genes might contribute to cancer even when they are not silenced entirely. "This inherited change is remarkably subtle," says co-principal inves...

Blood test may help signal tumor's remission, return in throat cancer patients

...hers suggest that this protein may represent a new target for drug therapy. Drugs that help turn off NF-kappaB are currently being tested in clinical trials at NIH and elsewhere. The researchers note that a few of the patients experienced elevations in cytokine levels related to other illnesses or injuri...

Gene therapy delivery of nerve growth factors reverses erectile dysfunction in animal model

...d genes had been effectively incorporated into the target nerve cells. According to Dr. Glorioso, HSV delivery of GDNF or neurturin presents a potentially important new approach for the treatment of ED. "Because the herpes virus persists in the nerve cell for as long as it is alive and nerve cells typica...

Breakthrough developments in rheumatoid arthritis reported

...e importance of a substance called citrulline as a target for immune attack in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). This immune system antibody associated with rheumatoid arthritis recognizes citrulline, which seems to be a key player in the condition. Indeed, the HLA associations with RA have now been shown by Dr. ...
