Choline supplementation during pregnancy presents a new approach to schizophrenia prevention

Jan. 15, 2013 — Choline, an essential nutrient similar to the B vitamin and found in foods such as liver, muscle meats, fish, nuts and eggs, when given as a dietary supplement in the last two trimesters of pregnancy and in early infancy, is showing a lower rate of physiological schizophrenic risk factors in infants 33 days old Continue reading

Inflammation may be a cause of plaque buildup in heart vessels

ScienceDaily (Dec. 2, 2012) — Fifteen new genetic regions associated with coronary artery disease have been identified by a large, international consortium of scientists — including researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine — taking a significant step forward in understanding the root causes of this deadly disease. The new research brings the total number of validated genetic links with heart disease discovered through genome-wide association studies to 46 Continue reading

Key step in immune system-fueled inflammation discovered

ScienceDaily (July 1, 2012) — Like detectives seeking footprints and other clues on a television “whodunit,” science can also benefit from analyzing the tracks of important players in the body’s molecular landscape. Klaus Ley, M.D., a scientist at the La Jolla Institute for Allergy & Immunology, has done just that and illuminated a key step in the journey of inflammation-producing immune cells Continue reading

ScienceDaily (June 26, 2012) — A simple blood test may help physicians track the progression of rheumatoid arthritis disease activity, say researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Continue reading

Protection of the heart at a distance

Protection of the heart at a distance

ScienceDaily (Jan. 13, 2012) — Novel avenues to treat a heart attack have been developed: in patients, who have a blood pressure cuff several times briefly inflated before they undergo coronary artery surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass, the heart is protected from damage. This is the result of a clinical study recently reported by a group of scientists from the University Duisburg-Essen (UDE) in Circulation Research , the official journal of the American Heart Association Continue reading
