Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study from a team of American researchers has revealed that a disrupted sleep pattern can accelerate the progression of cancer. According to the team’s report published in the journal Cancer Research, fragmented sleep disrupts a cancer-fighting metabolic pathway – a disruption that could be mitigated through drug therapy. "It's not the tumor, it's the immune system," said study director Dr. David Gozal, chairman of...

The ProImmune Company's Immune Formulation 200® Dietary Supplement, a novel Glutathione precursor which replenishes bodily Glutathione, also activates Nrf2. Nrf2 mobilizes approximately 250 immune support genes, a major asset to immune system support, The Glutathione synthesis pathway is also a route to Nrf2 activation. The study was reported in peer-reviewed Experimental and Molecular Pathology. (PRWEB) June 28, 2012 ProImmune's Immune Formulation 200® is able to potentiate...

A US study presented today at The International Liver CongressTM 2012 demonstrates that the entire HCV lifecycle can be recapitulated in murine cells, implying that HCV permissive mouse models could soon be developed. The data suggests that HCV replication in the murine environment is limited by innate immune responses. Inactivating these pathways and the expression of the appropriate entry factors and miR-122 creates murine fibroblasts that can be infected and support replication. The...

Iron is a micronutrient essential to the survival of both humans and disease-causing microbes. Changes in iron levels therefore affect the severity of infectious diseases. For example, individuals with mutations in their HFE gene have exceedingly high levels of iron in their liver and are more susceptible to infection with a number of microbes. Exactly how changes in iron levels affect susceptibility to infectious disease has not been clearly determined, although it has been observed that...

Chronic inflammation, which is at the root of multiple diseases, links periodontal disease to increased incidence of cardiovascular disease.The activation of Toll-Like Receptors, which are essential components of the immune response to certain pathogens, promotes chronic inflammation in periodontal disease. Of these receptors TLR4 is one of a family of receptors that provides critical links between immune stimulants produced by microorganisms and the host response. It stands out because it...
