    When mice with human tumors received doses of anti-CD47, which sets the immune system against tumor cells, the cancers shrank and disappeared.

    More HIV 'cured': first a baby, now 14 adults

    alcoholism cause and effect

    For the first time, doctors are reporting that they have cured a child of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS "It is also imperative that we learn more about a newborn's immune system, how it differs from an adult's, and what factors made it possible for the child to be cured,"

    Cure for type 1 diabetes? Gene therapy!

    The chief medical officer for Britain's Department of Health has issued a warning that resistance to bacteria is a more urgent threat to humanity than global warming, with bacteria becoming resistant to current antibiotics at an alarming rate, and there are almost no new antibiotics in the pipeline.

    Newborns with a certain version of a gene are more likely to have a smaller medial temporal lobe (blue spots). This brain region is also smaller in adults with Alzheimer’s disease. People with the gene version are three times more likely to develop the disorder, which affects memory.

    A vaccine against Alzheimer's disease may soon be on the horizon, say Canadian researchers, who are studying the injection in mice.

    By targeting quadruplexes with synthetic molecules that trap and contain these DNA structures - preventing cells from replicating their DNA and consequently blocking cell division - scientists believe it may be possible to halt the runaway cell proliferation at the root of cancer.

    “Our study of Kallikrein 6 showed that higher levels of this enzyme in the tumor are negatively associated with patient survival, and that the enzyme functions by promoting the survival of tumor cells,” says senior author Isobel Scarisbrick, Ph.D., of Mayo Clinic’s Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

    Emily Whitehead: girl whose cancer was 'cured' by HIV A seven-year-old girl has become the first child leukaemia patient to be successfully treated by doctors using a disabled form of the virus that causes Aids to reprogramme the immune system.

    A paper by myself, Romann Weber, Ritesh Kotecha and Joseph Palazzo just appeared in Brain, Behavior and Evolution. Its title is “Are Wet-Induced Wrinkled Fingers Primate Rain Treads?” We provide evidence that the wrinkle morphology on pruney fingers has the expected signature features for a drainage network, designed to efficiently squirt away water during grip.

    It seems that some cells might split during the growth phase (interphase) of the cell cycle and not during mitosis at all. Since disruption of cytokinesis (mitotic cell division) leads to cancer, this newly discovered klerokinesis might be beneficial if it can be encouraged.

    Scientists have developed new method for generating brain cells from urine, speeding up the process and eliminating some of the problems with previous techniques.
