Reviewing the Epigenetics of Aging
January 26, 2021
Epigenetic mechanisms regulate the pace of production of specific proteins in a cell. Feedback loops link the activities of proteins produced, input from the surrounding cell environment, and epigenetic alterations that change further production of proteins. Epigenetic control of protein production shifts constantly in response to circumstances, but many changes are characteristic of aging and...
Visual Decline Correlates with Severity of Parkinson's Disease
January 26, 2021
Researchers here note that in many people visual decline precedes the more evident worsening of Parkinson's disease as it progresses. Similar mechanisms of neurodegeneration contribute to both manifestations of aging. Neurodegenerative conditions are the result of many interacting processes that collectively harm function in the brain, from the structural issues resulting from vascular aging, to...
Metoclopramide inhibits proliferation of leukemia stem cells
January 26, 2021
(Inselspital, Bern University Hospital ) A research team at Inselspital, Bern University Hospital and the University of Bern has identified and tested the use of an agent that can effectively inhibit the proliferation of leukemia stem cells. Metoclopramide (MPR), used as an anti-emetic medication, interrupts the unique CD93 signaling pathway that only leukemia stem cells...

Researchers develop virus-based treatment platform to fight pancreatic cancer
January 26, 2021
Researchers from Queen Mary University of London and Zhengzhou University have developed a powerful therapeutic platform that uses a modified virus for the treatment of pancreatic cancer. By using the virus in combination with other drugs, the treatment significantly extended survival in preclinical models of pancreatic cancer. Viruses that can selectively infect and destroy cancer...
