  • Visualizing Alzheimer Disease In The Living Brain
    Japanese scientists describe a new technique for seeing amyloid plaques in living brains using commonly available brain-scanning technology, an important step toward developing an early diagnostic test for this devastating disease.
  • RNAi Meets ALS
    Two reports show that RNA interference might have therapeutic effects against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
  • Predicting Stroke Risk In Sickle Cell Anemia
    Study provides a predictive model that can identify sickle cell anemia (SCA) patients at risk of stroke with greater accuracy and faster than current methods allow, which may be useful as a prognostic test.
  • Wnt Signals Two Ways To A Healthy Gut
    The same signal that ensures that there are cells available to keep your intestine replenished also controls a cell type that is required to defend against bacterial infection.
  • Tumour Warning In Blood Explained
    Italian researchers have established a genetic mechanism for the long-sought-after link between cancer and blood clotting disorders.
  • X Makes Its Mark
    Genetic secrets of one of the most intriguing of human chromosomes: the X chromosome revealed.
  • Vital Fertilization Factor Found
    Researchers have, for the first time, identified a protein on sperm that is essential for fusion with eggs during fertilization.

  • Controlling Breast Cancer
    Scientists have determined the shape of a receptor that is centrally involved in the development of hormone-sensitive breast cancers.
  • Anti-Wrinkle Treatment
    Report shows that features of premature aging can be reversed in cell culture.
  • Genetic Factors In Heart Function
    Two studies identify new genetic mutations underlying congenital heart malformations.
  • New Insights Into Muscle Growth Regulation
    New research has identified a way to regulate muscle growth in a way that should minimise the chance of unwelcome side effects, unlike current therapies.
  • The Best Muscle Gene Therapy Of All?
    Researchers have identified the optimal means of delivering therapeutic genes to muscle tissues with a single intravenous injection -- an approach that may prove useful for treating heart disease and muscular dystrophies.
  • DNA Breaks Trigger Degeneration
    Researchers have shown that patients with a neurodegenerative disease known as SCAN1 (spinocerebellar ataxia with axonal neuropathy-1) may have trouble repairing a specific type of defect in their DNA.
  • Secrets Of HIV Unbound
    Researchers describe the structure of the unbound form of gp120 derived from simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV).
  • Stem Cell Puzzle Explained
    Study shows how a stem cell can be committed to making a specific type of mature cell, while remaining undifferentiated until it is needed.
