Yadira and Heather discuss nanomedicine—using tiny particles to deliver diagnostics and therapeutics—and how this approach helps overcome the biggest challenge to health care today: people. They talk to Adah Almutairi, PhD, associate professor and director of the Center for Excellence in Nanomedicine in the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at UC San Diego.

Santiago Horgan, MD, talked to San Diego Connect about a new incisionless weight loss surgery option. The procedure consists of an adjustable saline balloon placed in the stomach, which encourages food portion control and has been shown to reduce total body weight by 10 percent. Watch the video to learn more about this new weight loss option or visit http://health.ucsd.edu/specialties/surgery/bariatric/weight-loss-surgery/Pages/balloon.aspx

Why Don’t We All Get Alzheimer’s Disease? Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine offer an explanation for why we all don't get Alzheimer's disease (AD) - a trick of nature that in most people maintains critical separation between a protein and an enzyme that, when combined, trigger the progressive cell degeneration and death characteristic of AD.

Immune System Molecule Promotes Tumor Resistance to Anti-Angiogenic Therapy: A team of scientists, led by Napoleone Ferrara, MD, has shown for the first time that a signaling protein involved in inflammation also promotes tumor resistance to anti-angiogenic therapy.

The findings by Ferrara – professor of pathology at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and senior deputy director for basic science at the UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center – and colleagues at Genentech, a biotechnology firm based in South San Francisco, are published in the August 4 Advance Online Publication of the journal Nature Medicine.

Fate of the Heart: Researchers Track Cellular Events Leading to Cardiac Regeneration

Studies in zebrafish reveal abundant potential source for repair of injured heart muscle

In a study published in the June 19 online edition of the journal Nature, a scientific team led by researchers from the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine visually monitored the dynamic cellular events that take place when cardiac regeneration occurs in zebrafish after cardiac ventricular injury.  Their findings provide evidence that various cell lines in the heart are more plastic, or capable of transformation into new cell types, than previously thought.
