Latest Experimental Biology Stories
The interest in the biological effects of non-ionizing Electro Magnetic Fields (EMFs) and Static Magnetic Fields (SMFs) on the whole organism, as well on cellular systems, has noticeably increased in recent years in consideration of their increased production (from the generation and transmission of electricity, to domestic appliances and industrial equipment, to telecommunications and broadcasting) and the possible health risk for humans.
Therapeutic lentiviral vectors are emerging as vital tools for molecular medicine as evidenced by the growing number of clinical trials using these vector systems.
Formation of new blood vessels, also known as angiogenesis, is crucial for sustained tumor growth and cancer metastasis.
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a progressive disease, marked by shortness of breath and fatigue which can be fatal if untreated.
Researchers at the Tulane University School of Medicine, in New Orleans, LA, have demonstrated that thymoquinone (TQ) a major component of black seed oil (Nigella sativa) can suppress the growth of several aggressive prostate cancer (PCa) cell lines, in vitro.
Research sheds light on early embryogenesis, genetic disease.
Phenytoin is a well known antiepileptic agent widely used throughout the world.
Researchers at the PontifÃcia Universidade CatÃ³lica do ParanÃ¡ and Instituto Carlos Chagas have evaluated the therapeutic potential of purified and expanded CD133+ cells human umbilical cord blood (HUCB)-derived in treating myocardial infarction by intramyocardially injecting them into a rat model.
Two indicators of liver function, ï§ glutamyl transferase (GGT) and albumin (ALB) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis.
As part of an effort to develop effective medical therapies that block the progression of liver cyst growth in patients with Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD), researchers at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Center have found that the liver cyst walls develop and maintain a vasculature as they grow out from the body of the liver and that factors released by epithelial cells that line the liver cyst wall lumen can drive the proliferation and development of...
