Study identifies a previously unknown mechanism of neurofibrillary tangle formation. Thoughts health innovators?

Tauopathies are neurodegenerative diseases that are signified by the presence of irregular tangle-like clumps of the protein tau that appear in the brain and accumulate during as the disease progresses. As tau tangles appear in numerous diseases such as…

Researchers use precision 'demethylating' medicine to fight cancer. Thoughts health innovators?

A main barrier to immune therapy success has been the tumour’s ability to keep the immune system from functioning against the cancer.  The immune cells are there, however, like an unarmed army, they hang around and do nothing. However, certain epigenetic…

New nanotech contrast enables blood test for precancerous growth in colon cancer. Thoughts health innovators?

Colon cancer is often detected in its earliest stages thanks in part to screening technologies like colonoscopy. By snaking a camera through a patient’s intestines, doctors can identify polyps and other abnormal growths that could eventually become…

First comprehensive study of genetic risks for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) in African-Americans performed. Thoughts health innovators?

Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are chronic autoimmune diseases that affect as many as 1.6 million Americans. Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) have immune systems that attack their own intestines, resulting in inflammation. According…

Study identifies electrical control of cancer cell proliferation. Thoughts health innovators?

The molecular switches regulating human cell growth do a great job of replacing cells that die during the course of a lifetime. However, when they misfire, life-threatening cancers can occur.  A switch garnering much attention is K-Ras, a protein that in…

Researchers visualise mammalian embryo formation for the first time. Thoughts health innovators?

Mammalian embryos start out as a small group of identical cells. Then at an early stage, some of these cells take up an internal position within the embryo. These internal cells are the ones that will go on to form all of the cells of the body while the…

Study shows magnetic stimulation effectively treats frozen gait in Parkinson's. Thoughts health innovators?

Parkinson’s disease (PD) belongs to a group of conditions called motor system disorders, which are the result of the loss of dopamine-producing brain cells. The four primary symptoms of PD are tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia, or slowness of movement; and…

Researchers use dietary supplement in atherosclerotic mice to lengthen telomeres. Thoughts health innovators?

In human cells, shortened telomeres, the protective caps at the ends of chromosomes, are both a sign of aging and contribute to it.  The effects of chronic diseases such as atherosclerosis and diabetes on blood vessels can be traced back to telomere…
