Stroking up cellular therapy

...mune cells called CD34+ cells after stroke greatly enhances nerve restoration in the region of damage in mice. The authors isolated CD34+ cells from human cord blood and injected them into mice within 48 hours of a stroke. These mice experienced increase new blood vessel growth in stoke-damaged region. The...

From science fiction to reality: Nanomedicine brings fresh hope to the medical world

Existing drug may prevent brain injury and seizures in newborns

...stance called myelin. Myelin insulates neurons and enhances signal transmission; without it, neurons cannot communicate efficiently and neuromotor problems result. In the study, Jensen, Dr. Pamela Follett and colleagues first showed that developing human oligodendrocytes have peak numbers of AMPA glutam...

UF researcher: New low-carb potato to debut in January

... He said the potato skin develops early, which enhances resistance to mechanical damage so the potatoes can arrive on store shelves with minimal defects. The variety has some resistance to tuber greening, which increases store shelf life. "The combination of good Florida soils, warm tempera...

Researchers identify two potential protein targets for new drug therapies for pancreatic cancer

...ious organs in the intestinal tract. This protein enhances the ability of a tumor to grow. Focal adhesion kinase not only promotes cell growth but also helps tumor cells migrate. "Our hypothesis was that FAP and FAK would be overexpressed in pancreatic cancer and contribute to poor outcome," Cohen expl...

Cannabinoids spell relief in colon inflammation

...t was shown that the endogenous cannabinoid system enhances its activity during inflammation. The neurons in the colon produce more CB1 receptors upon inflammation. "It is as if the cannabinoid system is an on-demand protection system", explains Beat Lutz. The mechanism of how the endogenous cannabinoid syste...
