Hyperforin Is A Key To St. John's Wort, Researchers Say

...hould use a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 ormore, as photosensitivity may occur. The mood support supplement is available in food, drug and massmerchandise outlets. The 300-mg tablets should be taken three times daily.Optimal effectiveness has been shown in as little as two weeks with continueduse. Fo...

Researchers identify unique circadian rhythm photoreceptor

...ding to Rosbash, applying findings about circadian photosensitivity in fruit flies to mammals is currently problematic because a mammalian circadian photoreceptor has not yet been identified. Mammalian cryptochrome molecules appear to be involved in the central clockwork mechanism, rather than in light-detection, he ...

Aslera™ improves lupus disease activity and symptoms

...ache, muscle weakness, memory loss, hair loss, and photosensitivity - can lead to a poor quality of life. Lupus can be mild but also can cause significant and potentially serious damage to organs such as the lungs, heart, kidney, and brain. The disease is characterized by flares of disease activity interspersed with...

Aslera™ improves bone mineral density in lupus patients

...cle weakness, memory loss, hair loss, facial rash, photosensitivity and depression, which can lead to poor quality of life. Lupus is characterized by flares of disease activity interspersed with periods of improvement or remission. Approximately 200,000 people in the United States and more than one million worldwi...

...rticle, did key experiments to show that intrinsic photosensitivity and the expression of melanopsin showed strong one..., the discovery of the architecture, circuitry and photosensitivity of the melanopsin-containing retinal ganglion cells is an important step understanding how the circa...

Molecule helps pupils respond to light

...animal could be directly attributed to the loss of photosensitivity of these retinal ganglion cells rather than to elusive causes such as mis-wiring in the circuitry," said Yau. To determine the physiological effect of the melanopsin-deficient cells, the researchers chose to measure how the pupils of the knockout mic...

World's largest scientific society holds regional meeting in Long Beach, Calif.

...sects and grazing animals by causing hypericism, a photosensitivity characterized by cellular damage in exposed areas. The hypericism doesn't differentiate between the cells, and both good and bad cells are damaged in the process. Hypericism is not observed in darkly pigmented animals. The researchers will present th...

Researchers determine a contributing genetic factor of photosensitivity in lupus patients
