Scratch no more: Gene for itch sensation discovered

...t drugs can be used to suppress the itch sensation without affecting the pain sensation, according to Chen. And because pain can be an important protective cue that warns of danger, it may be a distinct advantage to have an anti-itch medication that doesn't compromise our pain-sensing capability. GRPR had b...

FDA sees nanotech challenges in every product category it regulates

...suring the benefits of nanotechnology are realized without undue risk,” Dr. Maynard said. “FDA is limited in its oversight of nanotechnology by the dearth of available risk research data on nanomaterials. Because the agency is resource-starved, there are scant funds for FDA to conduct its own regulatory-rel...

Agent slows aging in mice

... to be good for mice, it won’t be possible to tell without careful studies of humans whether NDGA is beneficial, useless, or harmful to people. Occasionally, something that is harmless in mice turns out to be highly toxic for people,” Miller cautions, adding that the Food and Drug Administration doesn’t eva...

Brain inflammation may be friend, not foe, for Alzheimer's patients

...rdrive had only about half as many plaques as mice without the over-active IL-1beta. Through extensive experiments, the team showed that the mice simply weren’t making fewer plaques, but rather that the body was better at getting rid of the plaques. The team suspects the involvement of brain cells called ...

Research team identifies new Alzheimer's gene

...more genetic markers in the DNA of people with and without Alzheimer’s disease than ever before has enabled researchers to identify a common gene that appears to increase a person’s risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease. The finding, announced today by researchers at the Translational Genomics Research Ins...

How to lose weight and not go hungry: HU researcher develops drug that mimics feeling of 'fullness'

Loss of stem cells correlates with premature aging in animal study

...explains that in the current study the mouse cells without ATR had an overwhelming amount of DNA damage and could not contribute to tissue renewal; nevertheless, the 10 to 20 percent of cells that escaped ATR deletion were able to reconstitute tissues in the engineered mice, at least initially. “Think o...

New study finds genetically engineered crops could play a role in sustainable agriculture

...uite good. But when Bt crops are compared to crops without insecticides, there are reductions of certain animal groups that warrant further investigation.” What is clear is that the advantages or disadvantages of GM crops depend on the specific goals and vision for agroecosystems. As NCEAS Director, Jim...
