Do environmental factors have an effect on rheumatoid arthritis? 19.4.2018 General News
In a new mouse study, researchers have found a link between rheumatoid arthritis and environmental pollutants.Individuals with a particular version of a gene -- human leukocyte antigen (HLA) -- have an increased risk for rheumatoid arthritis. Meanwhile, in recent years, there has been a growing interest in the relationship between rheumatoid arthritis and environmental factors, such as cigarette smoking. In smokers who develop rheumatoid arthritis, the disease hits harder.Michigan Medicine researchers probed the relationship between these two factors: the HLA gene and environmental pollutants.Smokers who also carry the HLA gene variant have even higher likelihood to develop RA, and their disease is more severe. For these patients, this means not only greater pain and swelling, but also more severe bone destruction -- a lesser known and more dangerous aspect of the disease."We found a particular enzyme that acts as a channel, or pathway, in the cell for a conversation between the two ..

Artificial moles could serve as cancer warning system 19.4.2018 General News
Scientists have developed a synthetic gene network that serves as an early warning system against cancer, producing visible moles on the skin as soon as the system detects the development of a tumour in the body. Cancer has become the one of the top causes of death in industrialised countries. Many of those affected are diagnosed only after the tumour has developed extensively. This often reduces the chance of recovery significantly. The ability to detect such tumours reliably and early would not only save lives, but also reduce the need for expensive, stressful treatment. The gene network, developed by researchers from ETH Zurich in Switzerland, recognises the four most common types of cancer - prostate, lung, colon and breast cancer - at a very early stage, when the level of calcium in the blood is elevated due to the developing tumour. The early warning system comprises a genetic network that researchers integrate into human body cells, which in turn are inserted into an ...

Brain's memory region may hold clues for depression 14.4.2018 General News
According to a recent study, the part of the brain commonly associated with memory and dementia could also hold key for emotional regulation.But new University of Toronto Scarborough research found that it might also yield important clues about a range of mental health illnesses including addiction, anxiety and depression.The research, authored by a team of neuroscientists, found that a specific part of the hippocampus could play an important role in emotional regulation, a finding that calls into question our understanding of how exactly this part of the brain works."What this shows is that we may need to rethink how the hippocampus processes information," said researcher Rutsuko Ito.For this study, Ito and her team looked at the ventral hippocampus in rats, a sub-region that correlates to the anterior hippocampus in humans. They wanted to see what role two further subareas of the ventral hippocampus -- called the CA1 and CA3 -- play in terms of approach-avoidance conflict ...

Children in polluted cities at increased risk of Alzheimer's: study 14.4.2018 General News
Children and young adults living in polluted megacities are at significantly increased risk of developing Alzheimer's, a study has found. Researchers at the University of Montana in the US studied 203 autopsies of Mexico City residents ranging in age from 11 months to 40 years. For the study, published in the Journal of Environmental Research, they tracked two abnormal proteins that indicate development of Alzheimer's, and detected the early stages of the disease in babies less than a year old. "Alzheimer's disease hallmarks start in childhood in polluted environments, and we must implement effective preventative measures early," said Calderon-Garciduenas from the University of Montana. The researchers found heightened levels of the two abnormal proteins - hyperphosphorylated tau and beta amyloid - in the brains of young urbanites with lifetime exposures to fine-particulate-matter pollution (PM2.5). They also tracked Apolipoprotein E (APOE 4), a well-known genetic risk factor for ...
