EZ2 Centrifugal Evaporation System For Clinical Biochemistry

Evaporation System For Clinical Biochemistry

The recent introduction of an EZ2 centrifugal evaporation system for clinical biochemistry sample preparation is providing  considerable advantages compared with the manual dry down evaporation methods which were using previously; Proprietary technology on the EZ-2 allowing the instrument to stop by itself at the end of evaporation process. But some clinical laboratories playing  a vital…

Immune Profiles During Acute Heart Failure

Immune Profiles During Acute Heart Failure

This research study quantifying the changes in the metabolome, lipidome and immune profiles during acute heart failure, one day after heart attack, and during chronic heart failure, eight weeks after heart attack. So after a myocardial infarction;  delayed progression or reversal of cardiac remodeling is a prime target to limit advanced chronic heart failure. In…

Enzymes Regulating The Daily Tasks

Enzymes Regulating The Daily Tasks

Metabolism and behavior of living organisms; according to day and night periodicity adjusting by the circadian clock ; Nocturnin is one of the enzymes regulating the daily tasks such as fat metabolism and energy usage; but in some research this mechanism reveals the molecular link between the enzyme’s daily fluctuations and its energy-regulating role in the…

Novel Therapeutic Approaches For Life Threatening Inflammatory

Novel Therapeutic Approaches For Life Threatening Inflammatory

By novel therapeutic approaches for better understanding the life-threatening inflammatory diseases such as sepsis, pointing to a biochemical agent that may be involved in the rapid decline in blood pressure that occurs in the advanced stage of sepsis and usually causes the patient’s death. A metabolic product of the amino acid tryptophan was believing to…

Immune System Functions With BRCA1 To Repair Damaged DNA

Immune System Functions With BRCA1 To Repair Damaged DNA

This study aims to prove the important association between this complex and the immune system; originally came about because my lab focuses on how BRCA1/2 function in DNA damage responses; and we realized that immune signalling entailed similar events; that are governed by some of the same players involved in BRCA function. In the systemic…

Experimental Therapies for Parkinson's Disease

Experimental Therapies For Parkinson’s Disease

Cells depend on Parkin to help get rid of damaged mitochondria. But in some studies, parkin depends on other proteins, including one called MITOL that has not previously been linked to Parkinson’s disease, to direct it to those damaged mitochondria. The finding might help improve experimental therapies for Parkinson’s that aim to boost Parkin activity.…

Development Of Specific Molecular Scaffolds

Development Of Specific Molecular Scaffolds

A multidisciplinary team from diverse research centers in Madrid;including various hospitals; Universalized Polytechnic de Madrid (UPM) and Completeness (UCM); has developed synthetic molecules which can specifically attach to neuroblastoma cells. The development of a system that can recognize cancer cells and specifically deliver drugs to such cells will increase the efficiency of the therapy and…

PDIA1 Enzyme Levels Diagnose Cardiovascular Disease

The investigation was conduct under the aegis of the Center for Research on Redox Processes in Biomedicine (Redoxome); one of the Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers (RIDCs); fund the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP). Redoxome is host USP’s Chemistry Institute. Measuring the blood plasma levels of an enzyme called PDIA1 could one day become; a…

Health Problems

Too Much Or Too Less Vitamin D Can Lead To Health Problems

Understanding how much vitamin D you need can be confusing; because there are different recommendations about how much vitamin D adults should get. Using the recommendations that fall on the low end, many adults don’t get the amount of vitamin D they should. Because few foods contain vitamin D naturally, eating foods fortified with vitamin…

Stressed Parents and food habits

Stressed Parents Make Bad Decisions On Food Choices

Recently, researchers have found that stressed-out parents make bad food decisions by  eating higher-calorie foods and eating more often. Stressed-out parents may be making those unhealthy choices for the children who depend on their judgment, new research finds. But, stress makes us choose more energy-dense foods, more comfort food,” says University of Wisconsin–Madison nursing professor…

Finding New Brain Mechanisms Regulating Body Weight

Researchers at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, have clarified the link between the molecule interleukin-6 (IL-6) in the brain and obesity. In experiments on rats and mice, they show that the molecule does affect the risk of obesity; and also where this effect occurs in the brain. Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a well-known pro-inflammatory molecule; and…
