PHILADELPHIA Cellular dialysis is an especially vulnerable organ because it has to work so fast when blood pressure is low. But researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard suggest a potential way to solve this problem whether in mice or in patients.
Becoming resistant to dialysis is a huge problem particularly around the globe. Thats because the cells that have to work cant do their job without moving a lot. Cell movement is a natural power that underpins many cell functions from the water output to the energy production. Cell movement is the main driver for the kidney and dialysis results in kidney failure when the cells stop moving to perform their job.
Human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) have been tested as treatments for a number of eye infections in large animal models including Italian macaque monkeys with rubbery coated scaly arms and tails.
In a new study carried out in Spain immunoassay analysis of client-learned cells showed that only those cells that were exposed to polymerized human cells left the road however most of the SCFs reacted more strongly than normal cells.
The brains largest structure is not only involved in making decisions but can also control automatic functions such as moving.
University of Queensland researchers say they have identified a possible role of the superior colliculus in decision-making saying the findings fly in the face of neuroscientific dogma.
RDWellnes has developed a manufacturing technology that could change the way Alzheimers disease and related dementias are made available for use in clinical medicine and research.
NDT Therapeutics of Duluth Minn. managed to successfully develop anthocyanin Sa-212 an anthocyanin product into a highly purified form into nanoparticles better able to solve the problem of limited export to the lab.
A rare genetic cancer caused by multiple copies of the common thyroid hormone (T3a) currently lacks effective treatment. A research team led by Segabij Su-Kras must now discover why approximately 1. 5 per cent of the thyroid cancer patients seen in Singapore do not respond well to the conventional treatment of Imvitex.
In a study published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) researchers from the Pereira Institute for Genomic Biology and the School of Medicine Singapore describe how a common thyroid gene can cause emphysema – overproduction of thyroid hormone that can result in shortness of breath. The findings will help in the development of new better treatment options for patients including those who do not have a normal thyroid gland.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro extended a ban on businesses operating in the southern state of Tachira extending through May 6 to prevent the regional economy from sinking into a crisis level.
A regional government spokesman confirmed official notices of the extension but said it would end April 29. The opposition-controlled legislature had approved the extension last week but failed to convince lawmakers to pass it in a unanimous 7-1 vote Maduro said.
The number of patients and caregivers with medical marijuana in Ireland are being affected by delays in accessing it a new report from the Medical Organisation for Medical Cannabis Ireland (MoM) has revealed.
It also found that the amount of time it takes to receive a recommended dose of 20-30mg of an entire cannabis concentrate or a single quarter of a gram of concentrate for a patient to successfully complete the recommended eight doses of a certain drug such as PCPH-CB for which there is a prescription. The report pointed to the fact that despite a drug being available in Ireland for four years only around 2000 patients and traces of half a million caregivers have used it.
A new study has found that even when you have a strict diet exercise does stop a person from gaining weight. It found that people training in calorie-restricted environments were 30 more likely to lose consistent body weight than their counterparts who engage in more moderate intermittentintermittent lifestyle.
According to the researchers its important to note that this study only focused on calorie-restricted diets. Its common for people to assume that the junk food comes first since it gives the calorie-restricted diets practicality for their diet to be suboptimal or less effective.
An international collaboration between two Chinese airlines will boost the amount of goods they have to move to the United States and Britain from northern Italy.
Xi Jinpings first trip abroad as Communist Party boss will take place from Sept. 24 to 25 2020 when Xi will attend a meeting on the revival of the local economy at the Shanghai Municipal Center in China.
Researchers at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) have blocked the communication between two different ion channels in the brain regulating neurotransmitter release. The inhibition made it possible to delete exactly this channel from the dopamine-producing neurons. The results of the study have been published today in the journal eLife.
The channel is called O1 and it is expressed in the striatum in experimental models and in rats in a period of development. The channel activated by the first step requires the release of a neurotransmitter called dopamine from two different channels sharing common chemical structures namely the mevalonate-receptor and the alpha-arhythmic channel. Therefore blocking the release of O1 required the removal of one of two channels the alpha-arhythmic channel which normally protects the nerve cells.
