Transparent Nearly Invisible Mice Created By Japanese Scientists
Scientists are getting a look at the inner workings of mice like never before thanks to a new technique that renders the rodents so transparent they're nearly invisible. Researchers from the RIKEN Quantitative Biology Center at Osaka University say the biggest challenge was the light-blocking "heme" in hemoglobin, which puts the red into red blood cells and is found in most tissue in the body. As it turns out, a substance used to make brains transparent for imaging also works to clear out heme. At first, the researchers were able to make translucent mice organs. Here's an image showing the kidney, liver and pancreas on...

Obesity plays major role in triggering autoimmune diseases
(American Friends of Tel Aviv University) Autoimmune diseases like Crohn's Disease and multiple sclerosis, in which the immune system attacks its own body rather than predatory invaders, affect 5-20 percent of the global community. A new study by Professor Yehuda Shoenfeld of Tel Aviv University points to the major role obesity plays in triggering and prolonging these autoimmune diseases.

Why Human Brains Are Better At Learning
One of the most amazing things about the human brain is neuroplasticity -- the brain's ability to reorganize and restructure itself with new knowledge and experiences. Simply put, learning literally changes the brain. While scientists used to think that the brain stopped developing in early childhood, we now know that the brain continues changing and adapting into middle and old age. But we're still learning about the nature of plasticity. Researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have just discovered that the brain's plasticity doesn't work the way that neuroscientists had previously thought. While previous the...

One Good Reason To Stop Mocking Gluten-Free Diets
Going gluten-free is an ever-so-mockable decision, despite the fact that an estimated 18 million Americans suffer from some kind of gluten sensitivity that results in embarrassing and painful symptoms like gas, bloating, constipation and urgent diarrhea. Unlike celiac disease, which is an autoimmune disorder that damages the small intestines if gluten is present, there’s no blood test to confirm gluten sensitivity -- which contributes to even more skepticism about the condition. Gluten-free diets undertaken by people without celiac disease have been called the “new, cool eating disorder” or, more seriously, have bee...

Is This Bursitis?
Discussion Bursa are the body’s bumper pads for tendons. They are a small synovial fluid-filled sac that lies between tendon and a bone or skin. There are more than 150 of them in the body. With bursitis there can be thickening and proliferation of the synovial lining, bursal adhesions, chalky deposits and villus formation. Trauma, repetitive stress, infection and autoimmune usually are the reasons for bursitis but idiopathic etiology also occurs. The differential diagnosis includes infection, arthritis, tendonitis, tendon or ligament injury, fracture or neoplasm. The usual signs and symptoms are localized pain and t...

‘Treasure in saliva’ may reveal deadly diseases early enough to treat them, UCLA scientists report
UCLA research could lead to a simple saliva test capable of diagnosing — at an early stage — diabetes and cancer, and perhaps neurological disorders and autoimmune diseases. The study, the most comprehensive analysis ever conducted of RNA molecules in human saliva, reveals that saliva contains many of the same disease-revealing molecules that are contained in blood. It was published online today by the peer-reviewed journal Clinical Chemistry and will be published in the journal’s January 2015 special print issue, “Molecular Diagnostics: A Revolution in Progress.” “If we can define the boundaries of molecular t...

In autoimmune diseases affecting millions, researchers pinpoint genetic risks, cellular culprits
Scores of autoimmune diseases afflicting one in 12 Americans -- ranging from type 1 diabetes, to multiple sclerosis (MS), to rheumatoid arthritis, to asthma -- mysteriously cause the immune system to harm tissues within our own bodies. Now, a new study pinpoints the complex genetic origins for many of these diseases, a discovery that may lead to better diagnosis and ultimately to improved treatments.

Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) is a chronic disease characterized by the autoimmune destruction of pancreatic β-cells in genetically susceptible subjects, which results in absolute insulin deficiency.

Interleukin-27: Can a cytokine with both pro & anti-inflammatory activity make a good drug target?

Is a cure for type 1 diabetes 'within reach'?
Conclusion This is promising early-stage research into the possible generation of insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells from stem cells in a laboratory. The researchers demonstrated that they were able to successfully produce large numbers of functioning stem cell-derived cells that looked structurally similar to normal beta cells and produced insulin in response to glucose in the same way. The successful function of these cells was demonstrated both in the laboratory and when transplanted into mice, including mice genetically engineered to have diabetes. There is currently no "cure" for type 1 diabetes and ...
