UCLA researchers identify common molecular mechanism in two skeletal disorders
FINDINGSA rare and as-yet-unnamed skeletal disorder shares a common “signaling pathway” with another rare skeletal disorder called Jansen metaphyseal chondrodysplasia. (A signaling pathway is a group of molecules in a cell that work together to control one or more cell functions.) The findings point to the mechanisms that control both normal and disordered devel opment of the skeleton, and could even lead to a novel target for cancer drugs.  BACKGROUNDSkeletal disorders, or dysplasias — such as brittle bones or very short limbs — can arise from genetic mutations that affect the development...

Taking a plunge in cold water paid off for a 28-year-old man with chronic nerve pain.
