NIH awards $18.2m to The Burnham Institute to develop Center on Proteolytic Pathways

...mphasis on the use of activity-based proteomics to profile protease function. This approach, developed by Dr. Bogyo at Stanford, marks an innovation over other proteomics strategies because the activity-based approach reports on protease activity, as opposed to just abundance. In practical terms, Dr. Smit...

Folic acid vitamin use by women reaches all-time high, March of Dimes survey finds

... 1995. "Although folic acid now has a higher profile in this country, we can't be complacent in our efforts to prevent disabling or fatal NTDs from occurring," said Dr. Howse. "We urge health care professionals and pharmacists to remember to use every contact they have with women capable of having a ba...

A liking for sweets, combined with novelty seeking, may predict alcoholism

To answer this question will require prospective studies, similar to what other researchers have done with sensitivity to alcohol consumption. Second, what are the genetic/environmental m...

IBD (Crohn's, Colitis) 'joins' cancer, inflammatory diseases in associated blood vessel growth

...larization of both CD and UC displays an activated profile as shown by the expression of angiogenic marker V3 integrin. "Targeting this integrin could be a potential therapeutic approach for IBD," similar to approaches in other forms of chronic inflammation, Danese said. "These results provide the initial ma...

Researchers report new gene test for isolated cleft lip and palate

...l variations were then assembled into a collective profile called a "haplotype." "What we found is that a particular haplotype is over-transmitted in some families with isolated clefts, suggesting a predictive association with the birth defect, and this was true in the populations that we analyzed from The P...

Hopkins scientists use blood proteins to detect ovarian cancer

...on techniques. Then, researchers compared protein profile results in these two groups and ultimately narrowed the search for potential marker candidates to the three proteins, one of which (ITIH4) is commonly found at high levels in ovarian cancer and the other two at lower levels. "Typically, only half of...

Theauthors state that the array of 32 seismometers, reaching more than two kilometers[one mile] below ground, can allow them to detect microearthquake waves and g...

Researchers uncover surprising degree of large-scale variation in the human genome

...the new study, Wigler's group created an extensive profile of such genetic variation in normal human DNA. The researchers sampled blood and multiple tissues from 20 individuals from a variety of geographic backgrounds. Differences in the chromosomal DNA purified from these samples were detected by ROMA. ...

Animal research suggests plant estrogens in soy do not increase breast cancer risk

...nopausal monkeys and may contribute to an estrogen profile associated with reduced breast cancer risk," said the researchers. Wood said it is important to note that the research addressed the effects of plant estrogens on normal breast tissue, and not in breast cancer. "A big unanswered question is whethe...

Harmless virus helps slow HIV by boosting immune proteins

...as a potential HIV treatment because of its safety profile and because patients would need only a limited number of exposures to see benefits. He and his colleagues are now considering a clinical trial in which HIV patients would be infected with the virus. "The fact that GBV-C is such a common infection, a...

Study finds that only half of a commonly used cancer drug is activated in cancer patients

"The ultimate goal is to tailor treatment that offers the most anti-tumor activity with the fewest side effects." In a separate study based on the same clinical trial, Fox Chase researchers also discovered a prote...

Expression profile analysis demonstrated that the ratio between the expression levels of two genes HOXB13 and IL17BR was the strongest predictor of whether a tumor would recur. The higher the expression level of HOXB13 and the lower the expression of IL17BR, the gre...
