Secrets of longevity protein revealed 18.1.2018 General News
Scientists have unveiled the 3D structure of a protein linked to longer lives, paving the way for new therapies to treat a wide range of medical conditions, including diabetes, obesity and certain cancers. Named after the Greek goddess who spun the thread of life, Klotho proteins play an important role in the regulation of longevity and metabolism. Researchers from Yale University in the US revealed the three-dimensional structure of one of these proteins, beta- Klotho, illuminating its intricate mechanism and therapeutic potential. The Klotho family of two receptor proteins are located on the surface of cells of specific tissues. The proteins bind to a family of hormones, designated endocrine FGFs, that regulate critical metabolic processes in the liver, kidneys, and brain, among other organs. To understand how beta-Klotho works, the research team used X-ray crystallography, a technique that provides high- resolution, 3D views of these proteins. The researchers' analysis

Eating muesli may keep arthritis at bay 14.1.2018 General News
Eating muesli, fruits and vegetables every morning may lead to stronger bones and help prevent arthritis, scientists say. Researchers at Friedrich-Alexander-Universitat Erlangen- Nurnberg (FAU) in Germany discovered that a fibre-rich diet can have a positive influence on chronic inflammatory joint diseases, leading to stronger bones. The key to the effect our diet has on our health are intestinal bacteria, researchers said. Every adult carries about two kilogrammes of benign bacteria in their intestines. They help our digestion by breaking fibre down into its individual components, which can then be absorbed by the body. A by-product of this process are short-chained fatty acids which are important for the body, providing energy, stimulating intestinal movement and having an anti- inflammatory effect. The intestinal bacteria also fight against pathogens which have found their way into the gastrointestinal tract. It is known that intestinal flora can either protect against

Hypersensitive brain networks may cause chronic headaches 13.1.2018 General News
Patients with fibromyalgia have brain networks primed for rapid, global responses to minor changes, a study has found. This abnormal hypersensitivity, called explosive synchronisation (ES), can be seen in other network phenomena across nature, according to the study published in the journal Scientific Reports. Researchers from the University of Michigan in the US and Pohang University of Science and Technology in South Korea report evidence of ES in the brains of people with fibromyalgia, a condition characterised by widespread, chronic pain. "For the first time, this research shows that the hypersensitivity experienced by chronic pain patients may result from hypersensitive brain networks," said Richard Harris, from the University of Michigan. "The subjects had conditions similar to other networks that undergo explosive synchronisation," Harris said. In ES, a small stimulus can lead to a dramatic synchronised reaction in the network, as can happen with a power grid ...

Hyper-sensitive brain network cause chronic headaches 13.1.2018 General News
A new study has found that brain networks of patients with fibromyalgia primes for rapid and global, responses to minor changes. Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterised by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by memory issues, sleep, fatigue, and memory issues.It is believed that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals. The new research states that hyper-reactive brain networks could play a part in the hypersensitivity of fibromyalgia.This abnormal hyper-sensitivity of brain networks, called Explosive Synchronization (ES), can be observed in other network phenomena as well across nature. The research details only the second study about ES in the human brain.Main researchers from the University of Michigan and Pohang University of Science and Technology in South Korea report evidence of ES in the brains of people with fibromyalgia, a condition characterized by widespread chronic pain.Richard Harris, associate professor of

Arthritis drug may help treat memory loss from West Nile virus 12.1.2018 General News
Scientists have identified an arthritis drug that reduces inflammation in people with West Nile virus and may help treat neurological problems persisting in patients who survive the infection. "These memory disturbances make it hard for people to hold down a job, to drive, to take care of all the duties of everyday life," said Robyn Klein, from the Washington University School of Medicine in the US. "We found that targeting the inflammation with the arthritis drug could prevent some of these problems with memory," Klein said. Spread by the bite of a mosquito, West Nile virus can cause fever and sometimes life-threatening brain infections known as West Nile encephalitis. About half the people who survive the encephalitis are left with permanent neurological problems such as disabling fatigue, weakness, difficulty walking and memory loss. These problems not only persist but often worsen with time. For the study published in the journal Nature Immunology, the researchers ...
