Cell division speeds up as part of antibody selection, study shows
In response to an infection, the immune system refines its defensive proteins, called antibodies, to better target the invader. New research has revealed two mechanisms that favor the selection of B cells capable of producing antibodies finely tuned to target that invader. More » (Source: The Rockefeller University Newswire)

Opinion: Why Jim Carrey is wrong about vaccination
Sometimes children get diagnosed with autism soon after they're vaccinated. That's a fact that no one on either side of the vaccine safety debate can deny. The scenario generates anecdotes that cloud many people's judgment, especially those without knowledge of medical science. (Source: CNN.com - Health)

Mutations in a single gene underlie vulnerability to two unrelated types of infections
Researchers have identified a surprising case in which defects in a single immune gene render children susceptible to two very different diseases: aggravating, but treatable fungal infections, as well as invasive and potentially fatal bacterial disease. This finding suggests a dual role for that gene, RORC, in human immunity to infection. More » (Source: The Rockefeller University Newswire)

Soft core, hard shell -- the latest in nanotechnology
(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) Medical science is placing high hopes on nanoparticles as in future they could be used, for example, as a vehicle for targeted drug delivery. In collaboration with an international team of researchers, scientists at the Helmholtz Zentrum Muenchen have for the first time succeeded in assaying the stability of these particles and their distribution within the body. Their results, which have been published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, show that a lot of research is still needed in this field. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Yoga and the Brain: A Vision of Possibilities
By Deepak Chopra, MD, FACP, Smita Malhotra, MD., P. Murali Doraiswamy, M.D. In 1994, after injuring her back and knee while training for the Boston marathon, Sara Lazar came across an advertisement for a yoga class while leaving her physical therapist's office. Lazar, a Harvard-trained microbiologist, signed herself up, hoping to receive some physical benefit. To her surprise, she got more than that. Within a few weeks she felt calmer and less stressed out. More surprising to her, Dr. Lazar discovered that she was becoming more empathic with others and could more easily see things from their perspective. In the current ...

Sequential immunizations could be the key to HIV vaccine

Too soon to say if breastfeeding problems could be genetic
Conclusion This animal study demonstrates how the zinc transporter ZnT2 plays an important role in the development of normal, functioning mammary (breast) tissue in mice and allowing them to produce sufficient quality milk to feed their offspring. Animal studies such as this can give a good insight into the biology and function of tissues that may be applicable to humans. However, there are many important cautions to bear in mind when drawing any conclusions about humans from this study.  It is likely that this protein does play a role in breast tissue development in humans, and therefore not having it might be a problem...

The Observer view on sexism in science
To keep up with the international science race, Britain urgently needs more women in the lab“If you’re not using half the talent in your country… you’re not going to get too close to the top.” Bill Gates’s counsel to a Saudi Arabian business gathering might be considered equally pertinent for the British scientific community, which is effectively fishing in just a little over half of the talent pool.

Q&A: Dr. John Mazziotta on the future of UCLA’s medical school and health system
Earlier in his life, Dr. John C. Mazziotta thought about becoming an architect. With a keen eye for form and function, he would apply his skills to the construction of great buildings. Instead, he chose medicine. Now, after more than 30 years at UCLA — where he has been chair of the department of neurology, an associate vice chancellor and executive vice dean, and founding director of the Ahmanson-Lovelace Brain Mapping Center — that style of visual thinking will serve him well in his new roles as vice chancellor for UCLA Health Sciences, dean of the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and CEO of UCLA Health. “Th...
