... 3. Cancer vaccine using low affinity epitopes proves successful in mice Antitumor immunotherapy is a challenging endeavor since most human tumorassociated antigens are nonmutated self-proteins expressed on normal tissues. The ideal vaccination approach requires self-tolerance while eliciting an effect...

UCSF finding advances insight into adult stem cells in human brain

...drive, the hallmark of cancer. "If this theory proves true," says Sanai, "it would open up a whole new avenue in brain tumor research." Building on previous research The study builds upon previous research by Alvarez-Buylla, who reported in 1999 that astrocytes function as adult stem cells in t...

Current smoke alarms pass life-saving tests

...r and more intensely." "Our new research, however, proves that even with a three-minute warning, smoke alarms still offer enough time to save your life," Bukowski stressed. "When the alarm sounds, it is important that everyone just get out of the house." Smoke alarms are of two types--ionization and photoel...

'Protein-only' prions confirmed in FSU yeast study

...f such diseases or a cause. King says his work proves that, at least in yeast cultures, amyloid fibers are the primary causes of infections, not the result of them. "Amyloids (in yeast) we now know are not the end-product of the infection -- they're the cause," he said....

Failure of DNA repair mechanism precedes final stage of deadly leukemia, new Penn study shows

...asured using comet assays. "If blocking DNA repair proves to be the cause of blast crisis, then we may be able to prevent CML from progressing to its final stage by interrupting the action of cancer gene BCR/ABL," said Carroll. "Ultimately, this could lead to a long-term treatment for the disease that may ...

Jefferson scientists use gene therapy to restore function of damaged heart cells in lab

...ARKct as a potential therapy and more importantly, proves that the enzyme ARK1 is a target for heart failure treatment." "This study is the last proof of concept," he adds, noting that years of previous work in various animal models enabled the research team to reach this point. "Now we are dealing with hum...

Researchers caution against linking strep, neuropsychiatric disorders

...ffice soon after their symptoms have peaked, so it proves nothing to show that a child's symptoms subsided after they saw a doctor and were treated with antibiotics. It's quite possible that doctors could give such children a green-bean diet, and the children would get better. That's why we need a carefully...

"But this study proves that no matter how appealing arbitrary percentage targets might be from a political standpoint, we should focus specifically on those places with the greatest concentrations of threatened and endemic species." The Center for Applied Biodiversity Scie...

...tially across insect species." If further research proves this to be true, these genes might be tools for controlling many different insects, he said. Joao Pedra, an entomology doctoral student and lead author of the paper, said data from the study suggest that more than one detoxification gene is over-expr...

Tiny beetle wreaks havoc on Texas ornamental tree nurseries

...rees, 1 to 3 years old, the infestation most often proves fatal. Mature trees are more likely to survive the infestation but may serve as staging base for the beetle to attack nearby younger trees. For this reason, the general control strategy is to cut down and destroy any infested trees immediately. If l...

From algae, weeds and people: new genetic clues to complex obesity syndrome

...springboard for using comparative genomics, and it proves without a doubt the value of sequencing the genomes of a wide variety of species." The Washington University researchers, led by Susan Dutcher, Ph.D., a professor of genetics, study cilia in an alga called Chlamydomonas. The alga provides easier acce...

According to the American Cancer Society, colorectal cancer will strike more than 146,000 Americans this year alone, killing about 56,730. Overall, colon cancers ar...

Lab mice rescued from Type 1 diabetes via dendritic cell-assisted therapy
