The Natural Way To Cure Stomach Problems
SPECIAL FROM Your belly is full of bacteria. That’s not an insult. That’s a fact. Helpful bacteria live in our guts, warding off disease and keeping our system in balance. But from time to time, the bacteria get out of whack in the form of everything from diarhhea and bloating, to constipation, dry skin, and excessive gas. What researchers are now learning is that probiotics, substances made of so-called “good” bacteria, can help get your gut and your body, back on track.

The Best Science Contest You’ve Never Heard Of
It all started with a bee sting on his testicle. It didn’t hurt as much as Michael L. Smith, a neurobiology and behavior PhD candidate at Cornell University, expected, and he wanted to know why. Did stings hurt more in some areas of the body than others? The best way to find out, he surmised, was to sting himself at 25 different parts of his body and then rate the pain on a scale of 1-10. His resulting “sting pain index” ranked the nostril, upper lip and penis shaft as most painful and the skull, middle toe tip, and upper arm as least painful. That study was not only published, but it also won him an Ig N...

Updated recommendations to help thwart the peanut allergy epidemic
From the desk of Shelly Flais, MDTwenty or thirty years ago, it was rare to have a friend or classmate with a peanut allergy. Times have changed. The number of children in the U.S. with a peanut allergy has more than tripled between 1997 and 2008. These days anywhere from 6 to 9% of all kids have a food allergy of some kind, meaning in a typical classroom 2 or 3 kids can be affected. This is an issue near and dear to my heart, as 2 of my 4 kids have peanut allergies.Why has peanut allergy been on the rise? What can we do to prevent allergies? Food allergy research continues and has begun to shed new light on the issue. For...

BOSTON (CBS) – About three percent of children in developed countries are now allergic to peanuts and now a leading group of pediatricians is coming out with new recommendations to try to prevent peanut allergies.

Catching up with Emir, gene therapy star
Last spring, we introduced you to Emir Seyrek, who was born with Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS), an inherited disorder that causes a child to have a poorly functioning immune system and difficulty producing platelets—the blood cells that keep bleeding under control. Until he reached age 2, Emir bled easily and suffered from severe eczema and infections.

At that point, he had extremely low pla...

Athlete’s foot cream could also treat multiple sclerosis
Conclusion This laboratory and mouse study has identified two drugs currently used for skin conditions – miconazole and clobetasol – that showed promise for treatment of conditions caused by myelin damage, such as MS. If a drug is already licensed for another condition in humans, this can make progress to human trials quicker if it is going to be given at a similar dose and in the same way. However, as the researchers point out, these two drugs are licensed for use on the skin – not to be taken orally or injected into the system. This means more work will be needed to ensure the drugs are safe enough to b...

The efficacy of gene therapy treatment for Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome has been demonstrated by researchers. Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome is a rare congenital immune and platelet deficiency which is X-linked and has an estimated prevalence of 1/250,000. It is caused by mutations in the gene encoding the WAS protein (WASp) expressed in hematopoietic cells. This disease, which primarily affects boys, causes bleeding, severe and recurrent infections, severe eczema and in some patients autoimmune reactions and the development of cancer.
