Researchers Find New Role for Dopamine in Gene Transcription and Cell Proliferation

George Washington University

A joint group of researchers at the George Washington University and the University of Pittsburgh have found that dopamine and the dopamine D2 receptor modulate expression via the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway. This pathway is responsible for control of cell proliferation and organ identity and is implicated in cancer, thus having broad implications for health and development of new therapeutics

Newswise: Early Spinal Patterns May Predict Scoliosis in Teen Years

Early Spinal Patterns May Predict Scoliosis in Teen Years

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

A pediatric researcher has identified patterns of spinal curvature in younger children that may be likely to develop into scoliosis by adolescence. Accurately predicting scoliosis, a common, abnormal curvature of the spine, may set the stage for the first-ever methods to prevent the potentially disabling condition.

The gut may be the ticket to reducing chemo’s side effects

Ohio State University

In a new study, scientists observed several simultaneous reactions in mice given a common chemotherapy drug: Their gut bacteria and tissue changed, their blood and brains showed signs of inflammation, and their behaviors suggested they were fatigued and cognitively impaired.

CBD, THC Use During Early Pregnancy Can Disrupt Fetal Development

University of North Carolina School of Medicine

A new study published in Scientific Reports, a Nature Research journal, shows how a one-time exposure during early pregnancy to cannabinoids (CBs) – both synthetic and natural – can cause growth issues in a developing embryo. This is the first research to show such a connection in mammals.
