TGFß & Alzheimer's Disease

submitted by: alex01

R.A. Flavell (Yale University, New Haven, CT) discusses the role of Transforming Growth Factor ß (TGFß) in disease. In the central nervous system of a murine model of AD this cytokine appears to prevent macrophages from attacking ß-amyloid. Flavell visualizes that selective blockade of this TGFß
activity could lead to the destruction of plaques in patients with AD.

Neuropathic Pain Neurodegenerative Disease

submitted by: alex01

Dr. Remi Quirion (McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada) described enhancement of the effects of pain-related peptides by PGE2 . This finding suggests a new, possible complimentary approach to the therapy of pain. Qurion also discussed anti-Alzheimer effect of polyphenols. This effect appears to be due not due to their antioxidant activity only. Quirion suggested the existence of membrane protein than binds polyphenols.

Therapies for Multiple Sclerosis

submitted by: alex01

J. Kocsis, PhD. - The current approaches to the therapy of multiple sclerosis are reviewed by J. Kocsis (Yale University). His research emphasizes remyelination as an approach to the therapy of multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injury.

Kaleidoscope Project

submitted by: Doorbell Productions

A proposal for an interactive process that integrates myth and science regarding water-culture awareness. If science and myth are reconciled, we believe that synthesis can occur within communities in ways that enable collaboration, trust building, and local water policy change, especially where common pool resources are a concern.
Kaleidoscope Authors: John Klock, Ana Lu Fonseca, Denise Elston, Sarah Sheldrick, and Brock Tabor

Transforming Science and Society Through Cyberinfrastructure

submitted by: apryl
Located on the northwest end of the University of California, San Diego is the San Diego Supercomputer Center. Home to what National Science Director Arden L Bement calls “the engine for change for the next scientific revolution,” that engine is Cyberinfrastructure. Just like the coordinated infrastructure that we depend on for our power and transportation, Cyberinfrastructure, or CI, is an organized aggregate of information technologies that include computers, software, networks, data...

A Pseudo-Boolean Programming Approach for Computing the Breakpoint Distance Between Two Genomes with Duplicate Genes

submitted by: dougramsey

Annelyse Thevenin argues that the best approach to calculating breakpoint distance between two genomes with duplicate genes is by using Pseudo-Boolean Programming.
