A bacterium associated with heart disease and capable of causing chronic swelling.

In the last seven a few months, a flurry of high-impact papers show, in aggregate, that nearly 50 % of AMD can be explained by variations in a gene known as Complement Factor H . This gene makes a proteins that regulates the immune and inflammatory responses of the body. ‘Our hypothesis can be that C. Pneumoniae could be the key hyperlink between AMD and CFH,’ Kalayoglu said. ‘That’s, patients with CFH variants may be particularly susceptible to the damaging effects of chronic infection, and an infectious organism like C. Pneumoniae could be especially effective in accelerating inflammation and driving progression of AMD in these patients. ‘ Kalayoglu and colleagues are collaborating with CFH experts to study this hypothesis.

– In this case, vision – This study investigates the extraordinary plasticity of the brain and its ability to reorganize itself after a major input shows is lost, said Lepor? In other words, it seems that the brain tries to that a person that a person see see, and this is especially true for those who blind plastic since early childhood, a developmental period in which the brain is much more and and modified than in adults is .. Coverage in the January edition of the journal NeuroImage , Natasha Lepor, a doctoral student at the UCLA Laboratory of Neuro Imaging, and colleagues found that visual areas of the brain were smaller in volume in blind individuals than in sighted? ones.

The researchers used an extremely sensitive type of brain imaging as a tensor-based morphometry, which can detect very subtle changes in brain volume, to examine the brains of three different groups: those who lost their sight before the age of 5, those who lost their sight after 14, and a control group of sighted individuals. Comparing the two groups of blind people, the researchers found, d gain of brain matter depends greatly if the blindness. Continue reading

Symposium main method involved: – genetic factors and pharmacological interactions between alcohol and nicotine may be critical factors in the very common co-occurrence of chronic alcohol consumption and smoking. – Any behavioral manifestation, including alcoholism or addiction to nicotine, a result of genetic-environment interactions, said co-author Yousef Tizabi. Drugs, including alcohol and nicotine, may affect different individuals differently, depending on their genetic makeup. Smoking canlso drug interactions are genetic factors genetic factors.
