Elevated Methylthioadenosine Levels Linked to Poor Sepsis Prognosis

A recent study showed that methylthioadenosine, substrate of the methionine salvage pathway, was a regulator of sepsis that could accurately predict prognosis in patients. More...

Image: Treatment with fusicoccin-A induces the regeneration of damaged axons towards the center of the injury. The axons are stained in green and the tips of the growing axons, called growth cones, are stained in red (Photo courtesy of McGill University).

Drugs Identified May Stimulate Axon Regeneration

A team of neurological science researchers has identified a class of small molecular growth promotors that may prove to be the basis for drugs designed to correct loss of axons following brain or nervous system injury or other disorders and diseases, including multiple sclerosis and neurodegenerative conditions. More...

RA Drug Blocks Growth of PTEN-Mutant Cancers

Cancer researchers have found that a drug approved for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis may block the growth of PTEN-mutant tumors by inhibiting the enzyme dihydroorotate dehydrogenase. More...

Stem Cell Structure to Facilitate In Vitro Embryonic Studies

A biological construct that combines mouse embryonic stem cells and extra-embryonic trophoblast stem cells in a three-dimensional scaffold will allow in vitro studies of cellular interaction in a model that mimics a developing embryo. More...

Biomechanical Stress and Inflammation Linked Using Muscle Cells

A team of biomedical engineers used induced pluripotent stem cells from patients with Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome (HGPS) to investigate the relationship between biomechanical stress and inflammation in an organ-on-a-chip device that mimicked the microenvironment of the cardiovascular system. More...

Black Carbon Nanoparticles Modify Pathogens and Affect Resistance

Nanoparticles of black carbon, one of the main components of air pollution, have been found to modify the way bacterial pathogens grow in vitro and in vivo and to significantly increase their resistance to treatment with certain antibiotics. More...
