High-grade gliomas are fast-growing tumours. with a poor prognosis, especially for older patients. For patients with a Grade IV glioblastoma, the average survival time is approximately 12 months. Few patients with glioblastoma (Grade IV glioma) survive beyond three years with conventional treatment.  Therefore, research has primarily concentrated on the mode of proliferation and stemming the spread of this cancer.  Now, a new study from researchers at University of British Columbia state…

A study by researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center has identified how an enzyme involved in protecting the body from pathogens senses Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB), a bacterial pathogen that infects millions of people worldwide and causes about 1.5 million deaths annually. The team state that the new finding has potential implications for the development of immunity-based therapies to treat tuberculosis, which typically takes months to eradicate and has become increasingly resistant…

Brain levels of the lipid ceramide are high in Alzheimer’s disease, and now scientists have found increased levels of an antibody to the lipid in their disease model.  While some members of this lipid family are a plus in skin cream, inside the brain, ceramide appears to increase beta amyloid production and help the iconic plaque kill brain cells in Alzheimer’s state researchers from the Georgia Regents University.

A new study from researchers at the NIH Clinical Center has found that non-calcified arterial plaque is associated with diabetes, high systolic blood pressure and elevated ‘bad’ cholesterol levels in asymptomatic individuals.  The team state that Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death in men and women worldwide, accounting for 17 million deaths annually. Current treatment strategies focus on cardiovascular risk and serum cholesterol levels rather than direct assessment…

Although serotonin is well known as a brain neurotransmitter, it is estimated that 90 percent of the body’s serotonin is made in the digestive tract. In fact, altered levels of this peripheral serotonin have been linked to diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome, cardiovascular disease, and osteoporosis. The opensource study published in the journal Cell, shows that certain bacteria in the gut are important for the production of peripheral serotonin.

New research by researchers at the University of Massachusetts suggests the immune system plays an unsuspected and surprising role in the progression of Rett syndrome, a severe neurological disorder affecting children. The development disorders is marked by immune cells known as macrophages being unable to perform their normal function, instead amplifying the disease. The data findings point to the immune system as a promising target for slowing the progression of Rett syndrome.  The…
