Researchers identify molecular mechanisms within fetal lungs responsible for initiating labour.

Each year about one in every nine infants in the United States is born preterm (before 37 weeks), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Premature birth can … Continue Reading Researchers identify molecular mechanisms within fetal lungs responsible for initiating labour.

Researchers identify how the blood-brain barrier is maintained to control ‘tight junction’ function.

It has long been known that the brain is protected from alterations elsewhere in the body by a highly regulated gateway known as the blood-brain barrier, which allows only selected … Continue Reading Researchers identify how the blood-brain barrier is maintained to control ‘tight junction’ function.

Human studies show specific nerve cell protein is elevated by an aggressive form of neuroblastoma.

A protein produced by nerve cells appears to be elevated in the blood of those with an aggressive form of neuroblastoma. The findings, presented at the American Association for Cancer … Continue Reading Human studies show specific nerve cell protein is elevated by an aggressive form of neuroblastoma.

Researchers use A3 adenosine receptors to activate ‘off signals’ for chronic pain.

In a new study from Saint Louis University, researchers discovered that drugs targeting the A3 adenosine receptor can turn off pain signals in the spinal cord to provide relief from … Continue Reading Researchers use A3 adenosine receptors to activate ‘off signals’ for chronic pain.
