U.S. created a new class of protein for the treatment of cancer and even more

U.S. created a new class of protein for the treatment of cancer and even moreExperts from the University of Georgia have created a protein that triggers the death receptor associated with a number of diseases, including cancer. The discovery could pave the way for new therapeutic directions. Action ProAgio protein is directed to communicate with the integrin αVβ3 - a cell receptor, abnormal expression of which is accompanied by the emergence and development of pathological changes in the body. Tests have shown that accumulates ProAgio caspase-8, an enzyme involved in programmed cell death, in the cytoplasm αVβ3. Thus, local protein…

The genetic code of red blood cells has been "hacked" using bust method

The genetic code of red blood cells has been "hacked" using bust methodResearchers from Lund University (Sweden) all have deciphered the genetic keys of red blood cells. The opening will create red blood cells in the laboratory. In experiments on mice, scientists introduced via retroviral combination of more than 60 genes in the DNA of skin cells. The method of sorting fibroblasts managed to turn in erythroid precursors, virtually identical red blood cells. The transformation, which lasts eight days, involves the use of a minimum set of the following genes: GATA1, LMO2, Tal1, c-Myc (GTLM). In tests on people this model has…

An enzyme that protects the brain from Alzheimer's disease has been discovered

 An enzyme that protects the brain from Alzheimer's disease has been discoveredResearchers in the field of biomedicine from Indiana University have found the evidence that an enzyme known as NMNAT2, can protect the brain from the negative influence of some degenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease. According to Medical Xpress, the results of the research were published in the eve of the journal PLOS Biology. The enzyme is derived NMNAT2 human gene of the same name and, in contrast to other human genes, is located in the cytoplasm - mainly in the human brain. "The research showed that NMNAT2 is key…

Scientists from the National University of Singapoure have invented a modern 3D-printing technology which makes possible producing medical preparates with normalized dozes.

Scientists from the National University of Singapoure have invented a modern 3D-printing technology which makes possible producing medical preparates with normalized dozes. According to authors of research, their invention is a unique and very promising project, because for a long period of time, technology and products in the field of personalized medicine was only at the idea stage and quite costly and complex. This technology differs significantly from the traditional methods of manufacture of medicaments, since printing is not layered, and immediately from the combination of three components.One major advantage of this technology is that the preparation unit can be realized…

How to measure pain?

Analysis of brain activity during painful sensations will help to create a device for objective assess of the pain strength. To measure the temperature there is thermometer, but to answer the question "how much does it hurt?", doctors still have to rely on subjective assessments of patients, "very", "not very", and so on.. In addition, if you have to treat an infant, you couldn't ask him where and how it hurts (not to mention the fact, when a person is unconscious in general). Painful sensations like any other, are reflected in the activity of the brain, which can be seen…
