The finding opens the door to new drugs.

An anti-thromboticfect New Version of Blood – Regulator ThrombinIn research led by a Saint Louis University researchers, molecular biologists have a way to get the anti – clotting enzyme thrombin discovered use properties. The finding opens the door to new drugs, the disease is treated in the context of thrombosis, the presence of blood clots in the blood vessels, which a third of all a third of all deaths in the U.S.

‘Thrombosis is a leading cause of fatal illness, ‘said lead researcher Enrico Di Cera, Chairman, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Saint Louis University School of Medicine. ‘If we are an anti-thrombotic drug that carry bear risk of bleeding risk of bleeding, the treatment of cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death in the U.S. And western world would revolutionized.

Although oral health has improved considerably in the last 30 years.

Although oral health has improved considerably in the last 30 years , dental disease is still the number one disease children occurring five to eight times more common than asthma, the second most common chronic disease. In industrialized countries, the majority of pupils are from tooth decay, disease levels being affected is highest in the under-privileged groups. Dental disease levels also rise fast in developing countries.

The initiative is supported by the World Health Organization, the World Dental Federation and over 40 Chief Dental Officers and leading dental figures from around the world.

Hunter and his colleagues determined that IL 27 is a novel targets subset of helper T cells.

Hunter and his colleagues determined that IL – 27 is a novel targets subset of helper T cells, T helper called-17 cells, which previous studies from the DNAX working group in California autoimmune disease are involved. In healthy immune system, inflammation of the response to of the response to infection.

To understand the role of IL-27 in chronic inflammation, Hunter and his colleagues at the Ludwig Institute in Melbourne, Amgen and the NIH studied mice developed to the receptor, IL-27 allows you to function in normal mice missing. When infected with the parasite causes Toxoplasma gondii, the toxoplasmosis, the mice developed severe inflammation of the brain T-helper T-helper cells, a type of white blood cells that are activated and deflected parts of the immune system. Without the ability of IL – 27 to regulate the immune system, however to the infection to the infection of the brain of control.

Magnetic pulses to adapt electrical activity in the brain.

In TMS, magnetic pulses to adapt electrical activity in the brain, neurons in the disrupting the underlying brain tissue. While the current findings is limited to hand choice, TMS could, in theory, influence other decisions, whether to choose an apple or an orange, or even which movie to see, Ivry said.
