Researchers at Oregon Health & Science University have discovered that an antioxidant designed by scientists more than a dozen years ago to fight damage within human cells significantly helps symptoms in mice that have a multiple sclerosis-like disease. The antioxidant — called MitoQ — has shown some promise in fighting neurodegenerative diseases. But this is the first time it has been shown to significantly reverse an MS-like disease in an animal. The discovery could lead to an...

Fidgetin inhibition: Potential new therapeutic approach to promote tissue regeneration & repair of broken cell connections Suppressing the enzyme fidgetin promotes the re-growth of experimentally injured nerve cells and their connections, according to research with laboratory rats that will be presented Tuesday, Dec. 17, at the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) annual meeting in New Orleans. If additional studies confirm these results, fidgetin inhibition could be a potential...

Brain Health Boosted By Molecule Produced During Endurance Exercise
2013-10-11 06:49:14

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Exercise is good for nearly every part of your body, including your brain. According to researchers led by Harvard Medical School, a molecule called irisin is produced in the brain during endurance exercise and apparently has neuroprotective effects. The research team, led by Dr. Bruce Spiegelman of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School, artificially increased the levels of irisin in the blood to activate genes...

'See-saw' molecule may offer clues to potential therapies in the long-term More than 11,000 Americans suffer spinal cord injuries each year, and since over a quarter of those injuries are due to falls, the number is likely to rise as the population ages. The reason so many of those injuries are permanently disabling is that the human body lacks the capacity to regenerate nerve fibers. The best our bodies can do is route the surviving tissue around the injury site. "It's like a detour...

UC Davis stem cell study uncovers the brain-protective powers of astrocytes One of regenerative medicine's greatest goals is to develop new treatments for stroke. So far, stem cell research for the disease has focused on developing therapeutic neurons — the primary movers of electrical impulses in the brain — to repair tissue damaged when oxygen to the brain is limited by a blood clot or break in a vessel. New UC Davis research, however, shows that other...

For A Healthy Brain, Clear Out The Trash
2013-07-23 10:41:23

NIH/National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke Recycling is not only good for the environment, it's good for the brain. A study using rat cells indicates that quickly clearing out defective proteins in the brain may prevent loss of brain cells. Results of a study in Nature Chemical Biology suggest that the speed at which damaged proteins are cleared from neurons may affect cell survival and may explain why some cells are targeted for death in neurodegenerative disorders....
