A discovery by Queensland scientists could be the key to stopping damage caused by uncontrolled inflammation in a range of common diseases including liver disease, Alzheimer's and gout.
Scientists at the University of Utah have identified a mechanism that activates T cells , a key component of the immune system, which could explain the elusive link between a tick bite and persistent Lyme arthritis . The results are published in the Journal of Immunology .
A new study led by researchers from National Toxicology Program, found that high levels of radiation from cell phones is capable of causing cancers in the heart of laboratory animals. However, the levels of radiation emitted by cell phones is much less than this threshold level.
With the clock ticking on the current stop-gap bill that funds the federal government, Congress is steeling itself to consider another must-pass budget bill. And, once again, health care could be caught in the crosshairs.
According to research published in the BMJ Open journal, researchers found that chemical is so ubiquitous that trying to reduce exposure by avoiding food packaging and food likely to contain BPA has no measurable impact on exposure.
Scientists from the United States and Australia have now identified a new hypertension disease gene. The study focused on a particular and very rare form of high blood pressure, known as familial hyperaldosteronism type II.
According to a study, researchers observed that a quality of an optical material used to make hyperlenses makes it possible to see features on the surface of living cells in greater detail than ever before. An optical lens so powerful that it lets you view features the size of a small virus on the surface of a living cell in its natural environment. The study is published in Nature Materials.
Researchers discovered the contribution of a specific gene in the proper development of blood cells that give rise to hematopoietic stem cells. The scientists also found that disruption of this gene resulted in various blood cancers and anemia in animal models. The findings identify a potential target for the development of treatments for some types of leukemia, anemia and other blood disorders.
Many species of swimming bacteria have a rotary structure called a "flagellum," consisting of more than twenty different kinds of proteins. By rotating their flagellar filaments and gaining propulsion, bacteria can swim freely in water. Flagella-mediated motility is essential for bacteria to move in search for better habitats.
Investigators in the Division of Allergy, Pulmonary and Critical Care have launched a pilot study to see if patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) can tolerate the addition of a commonly used antiviral drug to standard IPF treatments. They believe the drug may ultimately help slow progression of the chronic and progressive disease or reverse its course.
