Uric acid may help reduce effects of spinal cord injury, Jefferson researchers find

..."We want to establish the precise timing where the inactivation of peroxynitrite will have therapeutic benefit," he says. "In the spinal cord, we know many of the changes occur within 24 hours. It's certainly feasible to give someone uric acid immediately and raise levels in 50 minutes. Whether or not this should...

...duration of time between electrical activation and inactivation of the lower heart chambers. In this study, researchers performed an ECG on newborns between the 15th and 25th day of life at 16 centers. By April 2004, ECGs were obtained on 21,397 infants. Among those, 173 (0.8 percent) had Q-T interval greater th...

Inactivation of Alzheimer's disease genes in mice causes dementia and brain degeneration

...rs identified the molecular pathways through which inactivation of these genes in mice produces abnormalities strikingly reminiscent of Alzheimer's disease. The study, reported online in Neuron, may provide a new way to look at the cause of Alzheimer's disease, as it shows that the protein products of these Alzhe...

'Switched-off' genes put first chink in colon cell's anti-tumor armor

...ly and died. The research team also found that inactivation of SFRP genes occurs in the earliest form of lesion, called an atypical crypt foci (earlier than polyps or cancer). Approximately 5 percent of these lesions become colon cancers. "The colon cancer process may start by shutting off SFRP genes, which...

...ultiple genetic mechanisms are responsible for the inactivation of BRCA2 in these tumors and that a majority of the tumors with BRCA2 dysfunciton also had BRCA1 dysfunction. The authors conclude that "some degree of BRCA1 and/or BRCA2 dysfunction may be of nearly universal importance for the process of ovarian ca...

Mice lacking fat-making enzyme are leaner, more sensitive to leptin and insulin

...lly obese mice characterized by leptin resistance, inactivation of DGAT1 significantly reduced their obesity and insulin resistance. Obesity is a huge public health problem, so people are looking for drugs to cure it, said Robert V. Farese, Jr., MD, senior author, Gladstone investigator, and UCSF professor of med...

Study points to potential role for caffeine in reducing the risk of Parkinsons disease

The mouse study adds to epidemiological data published last year that documented how much coffee people drank and compared it to whether they developed Parkinsons. According to Schwarzschild, the results indicate that caffeine ...

Gene mutations found that lead to prostate cancer in mice new mouse model developed to study the disease

...port in the February issue of Nature Genetics that inactivation of just one copy of a gene called PTEN and both copies of a gene called p27 leads to prostate cancer in mice 100 percent of the time. Mutations in the PTEN gene are frequently found in human prostate cancer. And, for the first time, scientists now ha...
