Research presented at ASCB annual meeting After a four-week course of the vasodilator hormone relaxin, kidney function and blood flow immediately improved in lab rats genetically altered to model polycystic kidney disease (PKD), a life-threatening genetic disorder, according to research presented on Dec. 6 at the American Society for Cell Biology Annual Meeting in Denver. In addition to widening the blood vessels, relaxin lowered the collagen scores of the PKD rats, indicating that the...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) — Hope for better lungs! According to a recent study, the oral medication ivacaftor provides major, sustained improvement in lung function, growth and other signs and symptoms for cystic fibrosis patients. The study marks the first time a drug has been shown to work on the disease process rather than on the symptoms. Cystic fibrosis, which has no cure, is the most common lethal genetic disease in Caucasians. "Ivacaftor represents a significant advancement in the...

Researchers have identified an unconventional path that may correct the defect underlying cystic fibrosis, according to a report in the September 2nd issue of the journal Cell, a Cell Press publication. This new treatment dramatically extends the lives of mice carrying the disease-associated mutation. Cystic Fibrosis is caused by a mutation in a gene responsible for the transport of ions across cell membranes. This gene encodes a protein channel, called the cystic fibrosis transmembrane...

Johns Hopkins scientists have developed a gene-based test to distinguish harmless from precancerous pancreatic cysts. The test may eventually help some patients avoid needless surgery to remove the harmless variety. A report on the development is published in the July 20 issue of Science Translational Medicine. The investigators estimate that fluid-filled cysts are identified in more than a million patients each year, most of whom have undergone CT or MRI scans to evaluate non-specific...

A single gene is central in the development of several forms of polycystic kidney and liver disease, Yale School of Medicine researchers report in the June 19 issue of Nature Genetics. The findings suggest manipulating activity of PKD1, the gene causing the most common form of polycystic kidney disease, may prove beneficial in reducing cysts in both liver and kidney. "We found that these conditions are not the result of an all or nothing phenomenon," said Stefan Somlo, the C.N.H. Long...

Soybean Cyst Nematode, Heterodera glycines
2014-01-12 00:00:00

The soybean cyst nematode (Heterodera glycines) is a parasitic worm that infects soybean plants, and other legumes, across the world. It is thought to be native to Asia, but was found in the United States in 1954 and in Colombia in the 1980’s. It can be found in Italy and Iran and its most recent sightings have occurred in Brazil and Argentina, two major areas where soybeans are grown. These worms are highly damaging to American soybean crops, costing the industry as much as 500 thousand...

Hydatid Worm, Echinococcus granulosus
2014-01-12 00:00:00

The Hydatid Worm (Echinococcus granulosus), also known as the Hyper Tape-Worm, is a species of cyclophyllid cestode that is found in the small intestine of adult canids (canine), but also is found in livestock and humans, which serve as intermediate hosts. This specimen causes Hydatid disease. The adult Hydatid worm is typically less than 0.25 inches in length and has three proglottids (segments) when intact: the immature proglottid, mature proglottid and gravid proglottid. This specimen,...
