New York: Researchers at University of California, San Diego have developed a model that could be used to predict a drug’s side-effects on different patients.
Washington: Researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have documented the accuracy of three new tests for more rapidly diagnosing drug-resistant forms of tuberculosis (TB), which are much harder and more expensive to treat and which, experts say, represent a major threat to global public health. The study is published in PLOS ONE.
Washington (IANS): Two research teams said they have used Escherichia coli (E. coli) as diagnostic tools to detect liver cancer and diabetes.
Washington (IANS): Opening up the possibility for early diagnosis of ovarian cancer, scientists have identified genetic material that distinguishes its cells from normal cells.
Washington: Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have discovered that FDA-approved anti-psychotic drugs possess tumour-killing activity against the most aggressive form of primary brain cancer, glioblastoma. The finding is published in Oncotarget.
Washington: Laboratory animals fed a modified version of a common human dietary supplement were completely cured of intestinal worms that belong to a family of parasites that currently infect 1.5 billion people, or almost one quarter of the world’s population, according to new research presented recently at the annual meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH).
Washington: A study by researchers at Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and the Department of Pharmacology at the University of California, San Diego, shows that a protein called MCL-1, which promotes cell survival, is essential for normal heart function.
Washington: University of California, San Diego bioengineers have demonstrated in a study in pigs that a new injectable hydrogel can repair damage from heart attacks, help the heart grow new tissue and blood vessels, and get the heart moving closer to how a healthy heart should. The results of the study are published in Science Translational Medicine and clear the way for clinical trials to begin this year in Europe. The gel is injected through a catheter without requiring surgery or general anaesthesia — a less invasive procedure for patients.
Washington: Cancer researchers from Rice University suggest that a new man-made drug that’s already proven effective at killing cancer and drug-resistant bacteria could best deliver its knockout blow when used in combination with drugs made from naturally occurring toxins.
