Stem cell research targets cerebral palsy

...at we want to do. So we are working on ways to get additional factor into the brain to promote the integration of new cells long after the injury has occurred." When he began his studies several years ago, Dr. Carroll was putting stem cells from donor mice into the circulation of an animal model of cerebral pal...

Last of known genes identified in complex obesity syndrome

...BBS is particularly intriguing," says Katsanis. In additional experiments using the worm C. elegans, the researchers proved that ARL6 normally functions only in cilia, suggesting it might relay specific signals in that part of the cell. The next step is to figure out exactly what those signals might be. "We do...

Fellows also receive an additional $1,000 in travel funds to present their research at the 35th International Congress of Physiological Sciences and the Experimental Biology 2005 meeting, which is expected to attract nearly 12,000 scientists. 2004 Undergraduate Research Fellows: Pa...

Promising hospital anti-infection strategy probably won't work, study shows

...arefully monitored to make sure we are not causing additional harm in the hospital." He likened a hospital to a disease-ridden island in the middle of a relatively healthy river. As people get well and leave the island, they can carry with them the antibiotic-resistant organisms developed on the island and...

Evolvability could be a driving force in drug resistance

...g flu viruses and other invading pathogens provide additional evidence, they said. "The implication is that the drugs we have developed to fight invading pathogens also confer selective pressure on the evolvability of the pathogens themselves," Earl said. "In drug design, it is important to consider this and to...

Full promise of genomics in disease research yet to be realized

...microorganisms and research tools improved to gain additional insights into pathogenesis, according to a new report released by the American Academy of Microbiology. Genomic studies have placed a comprehensive understanding of pathogenesis in sight, but much work lies ahead, according to the report, The Genomi...

UCSD researchers are first to demonstrate molecular link between inflammation and cancer

In this study, DSS and AOM were given to two additional groups of mice one group bred without IKK beta in the epithelial cells of the intestine; the second group without IKK beta in myeloid cells, which play an important role in the immune system by generating white blood cells called macrophages to indu...

Genes may be central to cocaine addiction

Genetic discovery could dramatically reduce need for liver transplants in children

...n target. Proof of this concept, however, requires additional studies. To determine how inflammatory cells obstructed bile flow from the liver, Dr. Bezerra worked with a unique mouse model of biliary atresia in which one gene produced by inflammatory cells was inactivated. He found that by blocking in mice the...
