Drug Shows Dramatic Reduction in Seizures In Patients with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex

Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center

A drug originally developed to prevent the rejection of transplanted organs has now been shown to dramatically reduce seizures in patients with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) – a genetic disease characterized by benign tumors on multiple organ systems. TSC is estimated to affect more than a million individuals throughout the world.

Scientists Identify Neural Origins of Hot Flashes in Menopausal Women

Wayne State University Division of Research

A new study from neuroscientists at the Wayne State University School of Medicine provides the first novel insights into the neural origins of hot flashes in menopausal women in years. The study may inform and eventually lead to new treatments for those who experience the sudden but temporary episodes of body warmth, flushing and sweating.

Path of Plaque Buildup in Brain Shows Promise as Early Biomarker for Alzheimer’s Disease

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

The trajectory of amyloid plaque buildup—clumps of abnormal proteins in the brain linked to Alzheimer’s disease—may serve as a more powerful biomarker for early detection of cognitive decline rather than using the total amount to gauge risk, researchers from Penn Medicine’s Department of Radiology suggest in a new study published online July 15 in Neurobiology of Aging.

NIH Scientists Find That Proteins Involved in Immunity Potentially Cause Cancer

National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS)

A set of proteins involved in the body’s natural defenses produces a large number of mutations in human DNA, according to a study led by researchers at the National Institutes of Health. The findings suggest that these naturally produced mutations are just as powerful as known cancer-causing agents in producing tumors.
