Exercise improves functional and psycological ability and reduces steroid need in rheumatoid arthritis

...times per week, proved not only to be safe and beneficial both physically and in terms of quality of life for patients, but was also associated with a stabilising effect in disease activity measured by DAS28*. During the Portuguese study's three month period, researchers observed the following: A 33% improv...

Breakthrough Baldness Genetic Test

...give patients the best chance of success, as the only FDA approved medications to combat hair loss - minoxidil and finasteride - are most effective at stabilising hair loss rather than stimulating re-growth." The test for male pattern baldness provides information on the presence of a specific gene vari...

Animal Rescue Operations Underway in Flooded Bihar, India

...nating, because stagnant water is the root cause of all infections and disease. I think we are looking at a long haul here. I don't see this situation stabilising for at least four months. Certain areas which have been completely devastated might take even longer," said Chandan Singh Executive Director for human...

Chemical signature of manic depression discovered by scientists

...ges to those seen in the bipolar brain tissue samples. Chemicals that were increased in the bipolar brain tissue were decreased in rats given the mood stabilising drugs, and vice versa. The researchers findings lead them to believe that an upset in the balance of different neurotransmitters known as excitato...

Molecular fingerprint of breast-cancer drug resistance can predict response to treatment

...etaxel is one of the most effective chemotherapy treatments in advanced breast cancer. It works by binding to cell components called microtubules, and stabilising them so that they do not disassemble. They then accumulate within the cell and bring about apoptosis, or cell death. However, up to half of all patien...

Deforestation Plays a Critical Role in Climate Change: Study

...on that would be released by 13 years of global fossil fuel combustion. So maintaining forests as carbon sinks will make a significant contribution to stabilising atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations, said Dr Pep Canadell from the Global Carbon Project and CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research. In t...

Stem Cell Therapy Could Provide Cure for AMD in Five Years

...man embryonic stem cells, which are effective in replacing dysfunctional RPE and photoreceptors found in AMD, leading to a surgical therapy capable of stabilising and restoring vision in the vast majority of patients. Surgical procedures already developed and trialled in a number of patients using the p...

Carbon sinks losing the battle with rising emissions

... The stabilising influence that land and ocean carbon sinks have on rising carbon emissions ...nks is based on identifying several mechanisms that could cause the present stabilising role of oceans and land to be weakened or even reversed."Such a change woul...

Newly discovered gene plays vital role in cancer

...of their end products usually proteins on gene expression. With antisense regulation, control is effected instead through the production of mutually stabilising or destructive RNA molecules by genes with overlapping sequences, which determines whether or not the RNA molecules form proteins. "At least 20 per...

Tree lizard’s quick release escape system makes jumpers turn somersaults

...realised that as the animals took off, they raised the base of their tails as the rest of the appendage trailed along the ground, as if it was somehow stabilising the take off. 'If jumping and landing are important for lizards, they are really compromised,' says Gillis. 'Coordinated landing on a branch is ou...

e-Science points to pollution solutions

...pyrite is likely to dissolve more easily when arsenic is present, says Dr Kate Wright, who worked on the project. Further work could identify ways of stabilising arsenic-containing iron sulphide rock by introducing additives that slow the rate at which it dissolves. The eMinerals project found that a dioxin...

New weapon in battle against osteoporosis

...e made genetic modifications in mice in order to switch off their CB2 receptor. Dr. Karsak summarises what happened: "The animals gradually lost their stabilising trabeculae. We found in these mice that the number of osteoclasts ?special cells that can break down the bone tissue –increases by almost 50 per cent....
