A New Way To Rejuvenate Inactive Old Cells; Study Found

Research team led by Professor Lorna Harries, Professor of Molecular Genetics at the University of Exeter, has revealed a new way to rejuvenate inactive senescent cells. Within hours of treatment the older cells started to divide, and had longer telomeres, the 'caps' on the chromosomes which shorten as we age. The study published in the journal, BMC Cell Biology.

Pediatric X-ray Imaging Safety a Shared Responsibility

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released final guidance encouraging manufacturers to consider radiation safety of pediatric populations in the design of x-ray imaging devices. But pediatric X-ray imaging safety does not rest solely on the shoulders of manufacturers. Medical professionals and caregivers also have an important role to play, a study suggests.

Marine Fungus Metabolite Suppresses Osteoclastogenesis

In a new study, the researchers have reported that Mactanamide may have a significant role in the inhibition of osteoclast differentiation. Mactanamide is a new fungistatic diketopiperazine containing the uncommon amino acid d-2, 6-dihydroxyphenylalanine, has been first isolated from the mycelium of an undescribed marine fungus of the genus Aspergillus sp. from the surface of the brown marine alga Sargassum sp.

By Using A Technique, DNA Code Is Read And Interpreted

According to this study, researchers have revealed incredible images of how the DNA code is read and interpreted revealing new detail about one of the fundamental processes of life. They used an advanced form of electron microscopy called Cryo-EM, for which the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded in 2017, to zoom in and capture images of the reading mechanism in extraordinary concept. The study published in the journal Nature could open new approaches to cancer treatment.

Malaria vaccine: A Promising Cure

An international research team has conducted successful phase II clinical tests of a new anti-malaria medication. The treatment led to a cure in 83 cases. The new combination of drugs was developed by Professor Peter Kremsner of the Tübingen Institute of Tropical Medicine and the company DMG Deutschen Malaria GmbH. The study was recently published in Clinical Infectious Diseases and is freely accessible.
