RegenMed SA Conference Focus On Future Of Stem Cells

Doctors regularly perform stem cell transplants, also known as bone marrow transplants, to replace cells damaged by chemotherapy. The stem cells, or the body’s raw material, that make this transplantation possible will be the topic of a two-day event titled, “Fifth San Antonio Conference on Stem Cell Research & Regenerative Medicine.” The conference, scheduled on…

The intestine cells might induce inflammation.

Cells In The Intestines Induce Acute Inflammatory Episodes

Medical researchers discover a type of cell which induces acute inflammatory episodes in bowel diseases. Almost 4000,000 people in Germany are get chronic inflammatory bowel diseases Morbus Crohn or ulcerative colitis. Patients often suffer from flare-ups, which damage intestinal tissue. In spite of tremendous advances in treating the diseases with medication, the chronic inflammation still cannot…

To Slim Down To Reduce Of Bad Cholesterol

The enzyme that ‘loads up’ fat-carrying particles in the liver before they are transporting around the body have identified for the first time by scientists at the University of Warwick. The discovery also reveals how to ‘slim down’. These particles to reduce the amount of the worst type of ‘bad’ cholesterol distributed throughout the body.…

Mystery Behind How Proteins Interact With Cell Membrane

Trillions of cells all different shapes and sizes form a human body's structure. Surrounding each cell is a membrane, jointly acting as hostess and security welcoming certain information into the cell while making sure its components don't spill out into the body's void. Much is known about how the individual pieces of a cell work, but a significant understanding of how proteins interact with the cell membrane has remained a mystery until now, following a recent study at the University of Missouri.

Men And Women Remember Pain Differently

Scientists increasingly believe that one of the driving forces in chronic pain, the number one health problem in both prevalence and burden—appears to be the memory of earlier pain. Research published today/this week in Current Biology suggests that there may be variations, based on sex, in the way that pain is remembered in both mice and humans.
