Download PDF Nonsense mutations are single-letter errors in the genetic code that prematurely halt the production of critical proteins. These unfinished proteins are unable to function normally, and nonsense mutations cause 10-15 percent of all inherited genetic diseases, including Duchenne muscular dystrophy, spinal muscular atrophy, cystic fibrosis and polycystic kidney disease. There is currently no […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF THURSDAY, Feb. 14, 2019 — Scientists say nearly 2,000 previously unknown types of bacteria in the human gut have been identified. The human gut hosts many species of microbes, collectively referred to as the gut microbiota. Scientists are working to identify the individual species and understand the roles they play in human health. […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF Matthew Wetschler, MD, was once dead for ten minutes. In November 2017 while surfing at Ocean Beach in San Francisco, a wave drove him headfirst into the ocean floor, breaking his neck and leaving him partially paralyzed. He would have drowned had another surfer not spotted him and dragged him to shore, where […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF People with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) need more support when understanding and acting on new chest symptoms, a study in the journal Psycho-Oncology reports. During this unique study, led by the University of Glasgow and University of Surrey, researchers investigated how the experience of COPD, influences how individuals understand new or changing […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF The series of molecular steps linking inflammation and cancer, as shown in in the gastric epithelial cells. Inflammatory molecules IL-1α/β, lead to enhancement of MIR135B. This is turn activates FOXN3 and RECK genes, that lead to tumour like properties in cells. Credit: Kanazawa University Severe inflammation in tissues is often associated with the […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF Hearing impairment is a common consequence of advancing age. Almost three-quarters of U.S. adults age 70 and older suffer from some degree of hearing loss. One unanswered question has been to what degree hearing impairment intersects with and influences age-related cognitive decline. In a new study, researchers at University of California San Diego […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF Feb 19 2019 International study shows a lack of public knowledge on the subject There is a lack of information about the difference between influenza, “real” flu, and the common cold. Most people struggle to distinguish between these two diseases and this often leads to irritation and the perpetuation of myths. Similar misconceptions […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF Directly activating a gene important to exciting our excitatory neurons and associated with major depression may help turn around classic symptoms like social isolation and loss of interest, at least for males, scientists report. They looked in the prefrontal cortex, a brain area involved in complex behaviors like planning, personality and social behavior […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF FAU researchers have now discovered that so-called TRM cells (shown in yellow) presumably cause flare-ups in chronic inflammatory diseases such as Morbus Crohn or ulcerative colitis. Credit: Universitätsklinikum Erlangen/Sebastian Zundler Patients affected by the chronic inflammatory bowel diseases morbus Crohn and ulcerative colitis often suffer from flare-ups, which damage intestinal tissue. Despite advances […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDFKristin Myers, a mechanical engineer, and Dr. Joy Vink, an OB-GYN, both at Columbia University, have learned that cervical tissue is a complicated mix of material.Continue Reading ...
Download PDF Photoelectrochemical (PEC) cells are widely studied for the conversion of solar energy into chemical fuels. They use photocathodes and photoanodes to “split” water into hydrogen and oxygen respectively. PEC cells can work under mild conditions with light, which makes them also suitable for other catalyzing reactions that turn organic molecules into high added-value […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF For some older people, the joy of sex may be tempered by financial concerns: Can they afford the medications they need to improve their experience between the sheets? Medicare and many private insurers don’t cover drugs that are prescribed to treat problems people have engaging in sex. Recent developments, including the approval of […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF A new breakthrough from the Genetic Investigation of Anthropometric Traits consortium, which includes many public health researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, identifies multiple genetic variants associated with how the body regulates and distributes body-fat tissue. The new findings broaden the understanding of how genes can predispose certain individuals […]Continue Reading ...
Download PDF Study unravels how microbes produce key compound used to fight cancer For decades, scientists and doctors have known that bacteria in soil were capable of manufacturing streptozotocin, an antibiotic compound that is also an important treatment for certain types of pancreatic cancer. What was less clear, however, was exactly how bacteria managed to […]Continue Reading ...
