Researchers declined that a potential strategy targets metabolic pathways that are active only during intestinal inflammation prevented or reduced inflammation in a mouse model of colitis while exerting no obvious effect in control animals with healthy, balanced bacterial populations. They have used precision editing of the bacterial populations in the gut to prevent or reduce the severity of inflammation in a mouse model of colitis.
Lyme disease is caused by a bacterium known as Borrellia burgdorferi and is transmitted by the bite of Ixodid tick. It is one of the most reported vector-borne diseases worldwide. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC, USA) estimated that approximately 300,000 cases of Lyme disease occur each year.
Little or no certolizumab pegol (CZP) crosses into the placenta, making it safe for women who take this medication to continue it during pregnancy, according to a study from the U.S. and Europe. The findings were reported online in Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases.
Researchers have reported that the microalgal chloroplast has clear potential as a novel industrial production platform for biopharmaceuticals. The continued development of synthetic biology tools for chloroplast engineering of C. reinhardtii will strengthen this potential by accelerating the creation of designer transgenic lines yielding high levels of the target protein.
Once a smuggling stop for Cambodia's Khmer Rouge guerrillas, Thailand's border town of Bo Rai finds itself on the frontline of a new battle against drug-resistant strains of malaria that could frustrate global attempts to stamp out the disease.
The researchers study indicate that an individual's history of past falls can help predict their risk of bone fractures, independent of bone mineral density and other clinical factors. The study findings were published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research.
A new study sheds light on how the mosquito-borne Zika virus causes a rare neurological condition, and the findings could have implications for companies working on Zika vaccines, U.S. researchers said on Wednesday.
Patients with Crohn's disease (CD) develop similar rates of osteoporosis, osteopenia, and normal bone density whether or not they are treated with TNF-alpha inhibitors, a new study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology report.
The study demonstrated increased thalamic DAT (dopamine transporter) uptake in people with EDS , which further correlates with the severity of EDS, suggesting that increased dopaminergic function may be associated with EDS in humans. By using non-invasive SPECT molecular imaging , found no other changes related to DAT in DAT-rich areas such as the striatum, substantia nigra or globus pallidus.
The National Institutes of Health has awarded Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center a grant worth an estimated $8 million over five years for the establishment of a new center for research into alcohol addiction.
A large percentage of U.S. patients with small-cell lung cancer do not receive chemotherapy with thoracic radiation as the standard-of-care, and in turn have lower overall survival, according to research from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. The findings, reported in JAMA Oncology, also describe obstacles encountered by patients when receiving cancer treatments, such as their insurance status and socioeconomic factors.
