In a breakthrough research, the scientists have demonstrated that aminoglycosides (gentamicin) antibiotic could be used to treat familial dementia The antibiotics gentamicin, neomycin, streptomycin etc are commonly used to treat bacterial infections. These are broad spectrum antibiotics belonging to aminoglycosides...
The effects of partial gravity (example on Mars) on our muscular system is still partly understood. Study in rats shows that resveratrol, a compound found in grape skin and red wine, can mitigate muscle impairment in a Mars partial...
Early nerve transfer surgery to treat paralysis of arms and hands due to spinal injury is helpful in improving function. Post two years of surgery and physiotherapy, patients regained function in elbows and hands leading to improvement in independence...
Experiments in mice show that injecting amino-bridged nucleic acid-modified antisense oligonucleotides (amNA-ASO) into the brain is a potent and efficient approach to target SNCA protein for treatment of Parkinson’s disease More than 10 million people worldwide suffer from Parkinson’s disease...
Animal study describes role of URI protein in tissue regeneration after exposure to high-dose radiation from radiation therapy Radiation Therapy or Radiotherapy is an effective technique for killing cancer in the body and is majorly responsible for boosting cancer survival...
Study in mice and human cells describes reactivation of an important tumour suppressive gene using a vegetable extract thus offering a promising strategy for cancer treatment Cancer is the second leading cause of deaths worldwide. In cancer, multiple genetic and...
Study describes a novel mechanism involved in progression of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and highlights protein Mitofusin 2 as having the potential to be a possible treatment model Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is the most common liver condition which affects...
Study shows a new combination therapy of two plant-derived compounds to reverse cognitive impairment in mice At least 50 million people are living with Alzheimer’s disease worldwide. The total number of patients of Alzheimer’s disease could exceed 152 million by...
New study shows a second case of successful HIV remission after a bone marrow transplant At least one million people die due to HIV-related causes every year and almost 35 million are living with HIV. HIV-1 (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is...
Study shows first step towards developing a test for measuring Vitamin D status from hair samples More than 1 billion people worldwide are deficient in Vitamin D. This deficiency affects primarily bone health and also increases one’s risk of cardiovascular...
New study in mice shows that getting enough sleep every night could provide protection from cardiovascular diseases. Getting enough sleep is a general advice given by doctors as it is associated with maintaining good health. When someone gets adequate sleep,...
