Human Schwann Cells that Work
 No Doubt!Sometimes we hear our human cells did not express a certain receptor in the hands of our customers. We guarantee our cell " walk and talk " as advertised. If you are ever in doubt. we will test for expression of any receptors or cytoplasmic proteins. We also do this as part of our quality checks.Here're, for example, is a pub showing our Schwann Cells working. Note the receptors tested here.

Implementation Research to Achieve Health Related #SDGs
By Shafi BhuiyanTORONTO, Canada, Jan 26 2021 (IPS) The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all ages. The main focus of the SDGs is to improve equity to meet the needs of women, children and disadvantaged populations in particular. Shafi Bhuiyan PhDTraditionally, a mother nurtures a family through care, support, and love. Hence, the health of a family starts with the health of the mother. Maternal health is often overlooked in many countries, focusing only on treating complications when deemed ‘necessary’. However, contrary to that, maternal health care ne...

Highly specific synaptic plasticity in addiction
(Elsevier) Addiction, or substance use disorder (SUD), is a complex neurological condition that includes drug-seeking behavior among other cognitive, emotional and behavioral features. Synaptic plasticity, or changes in the way neurons communicate with one another, drives these addictive behaviors. A new study in Biological Psychiatry, published by Elsevier, now shows that players in the extracellular environment - not just at neuronal interfaces - contribute to addiction plasticity.

New study: Malaria tricks the brain's defence system
(University of Copenhagen - The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences) Malaria is one of the most common causes of death in children in Africa. When the parasite builds up in the blood vessels of the brain, it develops into one of the most dangerous forms of the disease, cerebral malaria. Though it wasn't certain if the parasite was able to penetrate the brain tissue, now researchers from the University of Copenhagen have found parasites can do that and have mapped the mechanism they utilise.
