Newswise: Mapping the pathway to gut health in HIV patients

Mapping the pathway to gut health in HIV patients

UC Davis Health

A UC Davis study found that Lactobacillus plantarum bacteria rapidly repaired damaged gut lining (known as leaky gut) in monkeys infected with chronic simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), an HIV-like virus. It linked chronically inflamed leaky gut to the loss of PPARα signaling and damage to mitochondria.

Newswise: Study reveals breach of ‘dancing’ barrier governs crystal growth

Study reveals breach of ‘dancing’ barrier governs crystal growth

University of Illinois at Chicago

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago used computer-based simulations to analyze how atoms and molecules move in a solution and identified a general mechanism governing crystal growth that scientists can manipulate when developing new materials.

Novel Study Documents Marked Slowdown of Cell Division Rates in Old Age

Johns Hopkins Medicine

In a novel study comparing healthy cells from people in their 20s with cells from people in their 80s, researchers at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center say they have documented that cell division rates appear to consistently and markedly slow down in humans at older ages.

Scientists Link Hormone Production in Baby Wallabies How Some Girls Are Born with 'Male' Genitalia

University of Birmingham

Research led by the Universities of Birmingham and Manchester has made a connection between the way baby wallabies produce male hormones and how some human girls are born with genitalia that resemble those of a boy.

Scientists build genomic research platform to help treat cervical cancer

Yale Cancer Center

Yale Cancer Center scientists have built a powerful genomic research platform to study cervical cancer, a disease that often is untreatable if it progresses after surgery or primary chemo-radiation treatment.

Newswise: Study Reveals How Collapse of Protein Processes is Driver of Aging and Death

Study Reveals How Collapse of Protein Processes is Driver of Aging and Death

Stony Brook Medicine

A new Stony Brook University-led study, to be published in PNAS, provides a biophysical model that reveals how damage accumulates in proteins with age and is a trigger to death. The finding opens a door to a better understanding of the molecular origins of age-related neurodegenerative diseases.

New Treatment Combination Could Work Against Broader Array of Cancer Cells, Study Finds

University of Maryland Medical Center

In continuing efforts to find novel ways to kill cancer cells, researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) have identified a new pathway that leads to the destruction of cancer cells. The new finding, published this week in the journal PNAS, could pave the way for the broader use of a class of anticancer drugs already on the market.
