Two studies document rise of superbugs in the environment

...uthor of the Massachusetts study. The first is the intrinsic ability of bacteria to mutate and acquire resistance under antibiotic pressure. The second is the spread of MDR bacteria from patient to patient, often in hospitals or long-term care facilities like nursing homes. In the study, living in a long-term ...

Major NH&MRC grant will fund multidisciplinary research to improve the treatment of neuroblastoma

...d other forms of treatment. Neuroblastoma has both intrinsic and acquired drug resistance. "With the additional resources we expect to make great progress in the study of neuroblastoma, a disease that results in about 15% of deaths from childhood cancer," said Prof Haber. "Five year funding gives us a tremendo...

Polar explorer delivers rare snow-depth data to ESA for CryoSat validation

...rth has been, and will always be changing. It's an intrinsic part of nature. But it is our responsibility to be in constant touch with our planet and take responsibility for how we interact with the Earth and make the appropriate decisions.

People who restrict calories have 'younger' hearts

...se data provide insight into the impact of diet on intrinsic myocardial function. Our normal Western diet likely induces inflammatory peptides that bring about changes in ventricular histology and function, including higher collagen content and associated tissue stiffening. Nutritionally balanced caloric restr...

Hepatitis C recurs rapidly after liver transplant

...hepatic source supplied virions and balanced their intrinsic clearance." The authors estimate, however, that non-hepatic sources can only account for 4 percent of total viral production. Ninety-six percent of it occurs in the liver. The patterns of viremia decline and increase seen in this study are consisten...

Measuring artery repair cells could become new heart disease test

...s --the disease progresses as the body's loses its intrinsic ability to repair and rejuvenate itself. Current methods for measuring EPCs which can represent as few as one out of 10,000 cells in a given blood sample are subjective and time-consuming, the researchers said. As an indicator of EPC cell levels, t...

Aggressive heart pacing may work best in some spinal cord patients

... says Dr. Ruiz-Arango. Although the heart has an intrinsic pacemaker, its rate is affected by two systems: the sympathetic nervous system to speed it up and the parasympathetic nervous system to slow it down, says Dr. Gyanendra K. Sharma, noninvasive cardiologist and study co-author. With a cervical spinal...

Carnegie Mellon receives NIMH/NSF grant to examine mechanisms that underlie neuronal synchronization

According to survey data, decrease in an SML score of just one point corresponded with a 30 percent increase in a student's likelihood ...

Study finds race affects African American survival of breast cancer

...area. "We interpret these data as suggesting that intrinsic biological differences in the disease and response to treatment among racial groups contributed to the poorer overall survival rates seen in the African-American cohorts," the researchers conclude. "It's important to note that African-Americans, and...

Emory/Georgia Tech Predictive Health Symposium features national healthcare leaders

Nanomedicine opens the way for nerve cell regeneration

...it is not clear why. Adult CNS neurons may lack an intrinsic capacity for rapid regeneration, and CNS glia create an inhibitory environment for growth after injury. Can these challenges be overcome even before we fully understand them at a molecular level "why axons in central nervous system do not regenerate"...

What causes cell division to slow down" In the 200-kHz case, the electric fields hamper the formation and function of a key cell structure known as the mitotic spindle. The spindle is composed of cell components known ...

Why women get more migraines than men
