Image: Diagram shows how the neuropeptide Prokineticin-2 (PK2) is rapidly induced during early stages of neurotoxic stress and secreted into extracellular spaces. PK2 is thought to act as a protective mechanism that helps neurons cope with Parkinson’s disease (Photo courtesy of Dr. Anumantha Kanthasamy, Iowa State University).

Protein Helps Neurons Maintain Dopamine Production in Models of Parkinson's Disease

A team of neurodegenerative disease researchers has identified a protein that seems to help neurons in the brain maintain dopamine production. More...

Post-Infection Zika Virus Shed in Saliva and Semen

Results of a study of the mechanism of Zika virus infection in two primate models demonstrated that the virus spread rapidly into the nervous system of healthy animals and that shedding of the virus in saliva and semen underscored possible concern for additional neurological complications and non-mosquito-mediated transmission in humans. More...

Image: Researchers have found that injecting nanoparticles into an injured joint can inhibit the inflammation that contributes to the cartilage damage seen in osteoarthritis. Shown in green is an inflammatory protein in cartilage cells. After nanoparticles are injected, the inflammation is greatly reduced (Photo courtesy of the Pham Laboratory, Washington University School of Medicine).

RNA-Based Therapy Reverses Cartilage Damage in Osteoarthritis

A novel treatment for osteoarthritis (OA) is based on a nanoparticle delivery system that transports a specific anti-inflammatory siRNA (short interfering RNA) to the chondrocytes in damaged cartilage. More...
