The researchers noted that further studies are necessary to determine whether a repair of unhealthy endothelial cells also help to fat fat growth. – ‘We know now say that endothelial cells in blood vessels cells, adipose stem cells, which help to do,’said Matthias Clauss, a ICVBM co-principal investigator of the study and associate professor of cellular and integrative physiology at the IU School of Medicine. ‘What we do not yet know how the formation of fat blood vessel blood vessel lining cells Our current hypothesis is that endothelial dysfunction promotes fat cell development through growth of new blood vessels hope along we soon be able to interrupt this cycle,’said Dr..

While ovarian tissue transplantation is still in an early stage, specialists say that only women hoping to will be able to have children one day help them fight their cancer.
Since then, researchers have two unsuccessful attempts always the woman was pregnant, but on the 1st In June 2004, the team succeeded in creating a two-cell embryo. The embryo was transferred to the uterus of the woman, but she would not get pregnant. Thus, scientists say it’s only a matter of time before a woman becomes pregnant and gives birth to a child after having a thawed ovarian transplant. Continue reading
Co – author Dr. Charles Fernyhough, also from Durham University Psychology Department, presented.’Our study an association between caffeine consumption and hallucinations inclination of students, however, shows an interpretation could be that the students who are more prone used used. Caffeine to help with their experiences. Further work is needed to determine whether caffeine consumption, and nutrition in general, mental illness this kind of hallucinations cause stress has. ‘.
See things that which was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and the Medical Research Council, 200 students about their typical intake of caffeine-containing products, such as coffee, tea and energy drinks and chocolate bars and caffeine tablets. Their tendency to hallucinatory experiences and their stress were also evaluated. See things that were not there, hearing voices, and sensing the presence of the dead were among the experiences of some of the participants reported.. Continue reading

Active genes. Labeling method extends ability to read DNA modificationResearchers at Emory University School of Medicine and the University of Chicago have developed a method for the identification and association with a sixth nucleotide, whose biological role scientists are only now beginning to to explore.
‘.. The method is described in Nature Biotechnology onlin.process, the researchers were able for the first time, see how 5-hydroxymethylcytosine distributed across the genome. In contrast to 5-methylcytosine , a chemical modification of DNA, which is generally found in genes that are turned off, this additional layer for from modification in active genes. 5-HMC seems frequently in embryonic stem cells and brain cells, as compared to other cell types, and their incidence increases substantially as the brain matures.

Cognitive neuroscientist Tony J. Led the studies of children with chromosome 22q11.2 deletion syndrome is the most common genetic deletion syndrome. In this disorder, a tiny portion of chromosome 22 is missing is what. Symptoms like heart defects, cleft palate, abnormal immune response and cognitive impairments Children’s Hospital is an internationally recognized center for research and treatment of the syndrome.
The results could also implications for other diseases. Chromosome 22q11.2 deletion syndrome is one of a number of conditions with a similar pattern of visual-spatial and numerical impairments, as summarized nonverbal learning disabilities, said Dr. It may turn out added Dr. Have common changes to critical pathways in the brain .
