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 ...

Zydus gets USFDA nod for drug used treat knee osteoarthritis 19.4.2018 General News
Zydus Cadila has received final approval from the US health regulator to market Diclofenac Sodium Topical Solution, used for treating signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis of the knees. It is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, the company said in a BSE filing. The drug will be produced at the group's topical manufacturing facility at Ahmedabad, it said. The company has got final approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) to market the solution, 1.5%w/w. The Zydus group has more than 185 approvals and so far filed over 320 abbreviated new drug applications (ANDAs) since it started filings in 2003-04. Shares of Cadila Healthcare, the listed entity of the group, were up marginally at Rs 385.85 per scrip on BSE.

Mystery behind rare bone disorder cracked 12.4.2018 General News
A new research has found that a certain gene mutation causes 'dripping candle wax' bone disease.The new study, led by National Institute of Health, offered potential treatment targets for the rare disease, providing important clues about bone development. The findings might lead to insights about fracture healing and osteoporosis.The rare disorder, known as melorheostosis, causes excess bone formation that resembles dripping candle wax on x-rays. The condition causes pain and bone deformity, which can limit the function of bones."Scientists previously assumed that the genetic mutations responsible for melorheostosis occurred in all cells of a person with the disorder," said co-senior author Timothy Bhattacharyya. "Our team hypothesized that mutations might only occur in the affected bone tissue."Researchers compared samples of healthy and affected bone from each participant to look for differences in the exome, the portion of the genome that code for proteins.The analysis revealed ...

Inuka, first polar bear born in the tropics, may be put down 12.4.2018 General News
An elderly polar bear at Singapore zoo, one of the site's most beloved animals, may be put down after its health deteriorated markedly, the zoo operator said today. Inuka, the first polar bear born in the tropics, has reached the grand old age of 27 -- well into his 70s in human years and two years older than the average lifespan of the creatures in captivity. Zoo operator Wildlife Reserves Singapore said an April 3 examination revealed that the health of Inuka, who has been receiving treatment for arthritis for some time, had declined markedly. The bear's activity levels have fallen over the past three months and he now prefers resting over interacting with his keepers, a statement said. Inuka -- who was born at the zoo, and whose name means "Silent Stalker" in Inuit -- had been popular with visitors due to his playful antics in his pool enclosure. But he has now cut back on swimming, his walking is stiffer, and he is less interested in his daily playing sessions involving traffic ..

Novel sticky patch can monitor blood sugar in diabetics 10.4.2018 General News
Scientists have developed an adhesive patch, which can non-invasively monitor glucose levels in diabetics through the skin, potentially spelling an end for frequent painful finger-prick blood tests. The patch does not pierce the skin, instead it draws glucose out from fluid between cells across hair follicles, which are individually accessed via an array of miniature sensors using a small electric current. The glucose collects in tiny reservoirs and is measured, according to a study published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology. Readings can be taken every 10 to 15 minutes over several hours. Due to the design of the array of sensors and reservoirs, the patch does not require calibration with a blood sample - meaning that finger prick blood tests are unnecessary. Researchers from the University of Bath in the UK hope that it can eventually become a low-cost, wearable sensor that sends regular, clinically relevant glucose measurements to the wearer's phone or smartwatch wirelessly, ...
