Probing the role of the delta opioid receptor in alcohol consumption

...he specific roles that each of the opiate receptor subtypes might play in alcohol addiction. Naltrexone has a greater tendency to interact with mu than with delta and kappa opiate receptors. It is possible that its success in alcoholism treatment is associated with its relative affinities for these receptor...

Gene chips bring new order to lung cancer types, could yield sharper diagnoses, better drugs

...s, said Golub. However, we also found evidence for subtypes [of adenocarcinomas] that are currently not recognized routinely, he said. So far, they are only identified as C1, C2, C3 and C4. Each type is characterized by different groups of genes that are very active or markedly inactive. And biologically, the...

The tool thus allows researchers quickly to assemble strain subtype data from different laboratories in order to analyze outbreaks and epidemics of many different infectious diseases and to assess the biodiversity of bacteria in ...

Genetic fingerprinting improves diagnosis and treatment of sarcoma

...to distinguish the moleculardifferences among many subtypes of adult soft-tissuesarcoma, a type of cancer that is often difficult todiagnose and treat. Using a sophisticated technology calledoligonucleotide array analysis, researchers developed agenetic fingerprint of each sarcoma, which will ultimatelyimpro...

Genetic markers key to identifying schizophrenic patients who can benefit from clozapine

Drug enzyme interaction: The metabolic relationship between antipsychotic medications Haloperidol, Ziprasidone, Risperidone, Olanzapine, Quetiapine, Sertin...

New findings change understanding of adult stem cells

...ertain ways. They lose the ability to make certain subtypes of cells that are made only during fetal development. And in the PNS, serotonergic neurons and noradrenergic neurons are only made during fetal development, suggesting that NCSCs undergo changes perinatally that are analogous to those in blood-formin...

The PDE4 subfamily is composed of 4 subtypes that are present in overlapping but distinct tissues of the body, and the hope is that it might be possible to develop subtype-specific inhibitors that are effective in the airways but do not interfere with PDE4 activity in other tissues. As a step ...

Families with two or more children with autism sought for $10.2 million study

"In our genetics research we are trying to locate between five and 20 genes that are possibly related to autism. We are expanding our genetics studies because our earli...

New technique reveals drug resistance in breast cancer tumors

The researchers believe the technique could spare millions of women from needlessly receiving toxic chemotherapy, and they ar...

A significant excess transmission was observed for DQB1_05 and _04 alleles in familial cases, strongly suggesting that a DQB1 polymorphic amino acid mig...

Why does caffeine delay exercise-induced fatigue?

... antagonist, and it is not known which of the four subtypes of adenosine receptors may be involved in an effect of caffeine on fatigue. However, A2b and A3 receptors are relatively less active than A1 and A2a receptors under normal physiological conditions. If the researchers were correct, the CNS administra...

Early diagnosis of Usher syndrome type 1 made possible by new findings

...c dual deficit disorder. There are three clinical subtypes of Usher syndrome, the most severe of which is Usher type 1 (USH1). This syndrome involves deafness at birth, progressive blindness and balance problems. In 1861, a physician working in Berlin described the clinical features of Usher syndrome in Je...

KEPPRA international Phase IV SKATE study results show favourable efficacy

In simple partial seizures 36.6% of patients (90/246) experienced a reduction in seizures greater or equal to 50% and 17.9% were seizure free from this specific subtype. While 49.8% of patients (286/574) with complex partial seizu...
