In both human and animal models, researchers found that a prostaglandin known as PGD2 and its derivative, 15-dPGJ2, inhibit hair growth. The PGD2-related inhibition occurred through a receptor...

According to a new study, expectant mothers who have gum disease are less likely to deliver their babies prematurely if they use mouthwash during their pregnancy. Pregnant women with gum disease are known to have more premature babies than women with healthy gums.

University of Illinois scientists have learned that a specific omega-6 fatty acid may be critical to maintaining skin health. "In experiments with mice, we knocked out a gene responsible for an enzyme that helps the body to make arachidonic acid. Without arachidonic acid, the mice developed severe ulcerative dermatitis. The animals were very itchy, they scratched themselves continuously, and they developed a lot of bleeding sores," said Manabu Nakamura, a U of I associate professor of food...
