COPD-associated inflammation halted in model experiment

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD for short, is believed to be the third most common cause of death worldwide. However, because the underlying mechanism is still largely unknown, today's treatments can only slow progression of the disease. Scientists have now reported a previously unknown pathogenic mechanism, which they have already been able to prevent in the laboratory.

What are the best ways to diagnose and manage asthma?

Added: 19.08.2019 19:20 | 0 views | 0 comments

Scientists have examined the current information available from many different sources on diagnosing and managing mild to moderate asthma in adults and summarized them. They determined that essential, effective treatment must involve a physical and breathing exam, a comprehensive health history of the patient and ask questions that may answer what triggers may cause an asthma attack.

Novel insights into cholesterol regulation may lead to new therapies for heart disease

Added: 19.08.2019 18:39 | 0 views | 0 comments

In a landmark study, scientists discovered what makes white blood cell counts spike in individuals who have high cholesterol, possibly leading to new therapies for heart disease. They looked at hypercholesterolemia, which is the type of high cholesterol that causes very high levels of LDL -- the so-called 'bad' cholesterol -- to circulate in the blood. They identified a new regulatory mechanism in zebrafish models responsible for this increase.

Scientists propose new theory on Alzheimer's, amyloid connection

Added: 19.08.2019 18:39 | 1 views | 0 comments

'Is amyloid precursor protein the mastermind behind Alzheimer's or is it just an accomplice?' Researchers devised a multi-functional reporter for amyloid precursor protein and tracked its localization and mobility, noticing a strange association between the protein and cholesterol that resides in the cell membrane of synapses. With cholesterol's broad involvement in almost all aspects of neurons' life, they propose a new theory on the amyloid precursor protein connection in AD, especially in the surface of those tiny synapses, which triggers neurodegeneration.
