Noninvasive Eye Scan Could Detect Key Signs of Alzheimer’s Disease Years Before Patients Show Symptoms

JCI-Insight-Retinal-Imaging-08-17-17.jpg

Cedars-Sinai neuroscience investigators have found that Alzheimer’s disease affects the retina – the back of the eye – similarly to the way it affects the brain. The study also revealed that an investigational, noninvasive eye scan could detect the key signs of Alzheimer’s disease years before patients experience symptoms.

Findings Pave Way for Three-Drug Combination Treatment for Childhood Leukemia

RaduCaius2016Hi-Res_1.jpg

UCLA researchers have developed a new approach that could eventually help young people respond better to treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia. The scientists discovered in mice that when the production of nucleotides -- also known as the building blocks of life -- is stopped, a "DNA replication stress response" is activated. The replication stress response is a cellular monitoring system that usually senses and resolves DNA damage, but instead allows cancer cells to survive. The team, led by Dr. Caius Radu, a member of UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, used results of the study to devise a three-drug combination treatment regimen, which has proven to kill cancer cells and eradicate acute lymphoblastic leukemia in mouse models.

UCLA researchers have discovered a new way to activate the stem cells in the hair follicle to make hair grow. The research, led by scientists Heather Christofk and William Lowry, may lead to new drugs that could promote hair growth for people with baldness or alopecia, which is hair loss associated with such factors as hormonal imbalance, stress, aging or chemotherapy treatment.
