Snoring in children might be an allergic type disease

...re born. “Our findings were consistent with the view that snoring forms part of the spectrum of allergic diseases in childhood,” he said. While the study findings are limited to children with rhinitis, Dr Marshall explained the observed associations with risk factors could apply to the general popul...

Gower and King are now combining data from MERIS with a sophisticated processing algorithm and powerful Grid computing to broaden this new view. The basic principle behind Grid computing is that anything one computer can do, a pool...

Marine phytoplankton changes form to protect itself from different predators

...dispute, Hay believes it shows that both points of view could be correct – depending on which form the organism has taken. “It depends on the environmental context, which we are appreciating more and more in ecology and in biomedical research,” he added. “Some of these differences are small, but they ...

St. Jude study shows genes play an unexpected role in their own activation

...-up co-factors for CBP/p300. “This more complex view of how CREB works may help us understand how this single transcription factor can stimulate many different genes, depending on which tissues are using it and which signaling molecule caused cAMP to put CREB to work,” Brindle said. “It is another clue...

Understanding why C. difficile causes disease -- it's hungry

...utrient deprivation. This is consistent with the view that most disease-causing bacteria express their pathogenicity when they are hungry," says Abraham Sonenshein, professor at the Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences at Tufts University and at Tufts University School of Medicine, at the 107t...

Better insight into brain anatomical structures

...ection of the manganese oxide nanoparticles gave a view into different areas of the mouse brains—in excellent resolution. "We have developed the first truly biocompatible MRI contrast agent for anatomical brain imaging," Lee and Hyeon point out. "With this agent, we are able to get high-contrast views of ...

Moths mimic sounds to survive

...searcher trained free-flying bats to hunt moths in view of two high-speed infrared video cameras to record predator-prey interactions that occur in fractions of a second. He also recorded the sounds emitted from each moth, as well as the sounds made by the bats. All the bats quickly learned to avoid ...

Novel system developed to turn data into real-time, interactive 3-D images

"Data viewing is rapid and allows accurate diagnosis in a fraction of the time that physicians must now spend using current image viewing technologies," Clements says. The technology can be applied ...

Students invent protective pouch to enhance cell therapy

First, the doctor would insert the stainless steel outer stent, which would push out harmlessly on the elastic interior of the vein. Next, the doctor would insert the inner stent, surround...

Molecule that destroys bone also protects it, new research shows

...as forced scientists to revise completely how they view their favorite disease. Everyone now has to rethink the causative mechanism." Gaffen said IL-17 likely would be toxic if given systemically, so it may not be a therapeutic candidate to increase immunity. But inhibitors of IL-17 are considered im...

DNA repair proteins monitored at double-strand break

... Children's Research Hospital had a molecule’s eye view of the human cell’s DNA repair kit as it assembled on a double-strand break to link together the broken ends. Double-strand breaks are ruptures that cut completely across the twisted, ladder-like structure of DNA, breaking it into two pieces. Using...

Researchers publish first marsupial genome sequence

...possum genome offers a unique lens though which to view the evolution of our own genome," said Kirstin Lindblad-Toh, Ph.D., co-director of the Broad Institute's genome sequencing and analysis program and the study's senior author. Marsupials and the ancestors of placental mammals diverged 180 million y...

Brain maps online

The problem neuroscientists are confronted with "is akin to a computer user who tries to figure out how the machine's electronic chip works by looking down at it; there is no way to figure out how things are connected," Callaway say...

Bones in motion: Brown scientists to create new 3-D X-ray system

.... Cinefluoroscopy, a technique that uses X-rays to view objects, can produce moving images in two dimensions, but not 3-D. An orthopedic surgeon trying to figure out the best way to repair a torn knee ligament or an evolutionary biologist tracing the disappearance of digits in pigs would face a difficu...
