Scientists Discover a Way to Prevent Stem Cell Loss and Improve Tissue Regeneration

Friday, December 08, 2017 -- As we get older, we lose many of the stem cells that aid in repairing damaged tissue. However, researchers from Buck Institute and Stanford University have discovered a way to inhibit the nutrient-sensing pathway TOR, which drives stem cell loss. The post Scientists Discover a Way to Prevent Stem Cell Loss and Improve Tissue Regeneration appeared first on Futurism.

Can a Cocoa Compound Delay Diabetes?

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 -- By Dr. Mercola According to the American Diabetes Association,1 more than 30 million Americans are living with diabetes, the majority of whom are Type 2 diabetics. Another 84 million Americans have prediabetes, meaning they could advance to the full-blown disease in less than five years. By 2035, diabetes is expected to afflict 592 million people globally.2 As I have often said, a healthy lifestyle not only can prevent Type 2 diabetes, but is also capable of reversing it. With proper attention to diet and lifestyle, Type 2 diabetes is, in most cases, a curable condition. In the majority of situations, it does not require medication. Based on its influence on blood glucose levels, research has suggested a compound found

[Research Articles] Durability and correlates of vaccine protection against Zika virus in rhesus monkeys

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 -- An effective Zika virus (ZIKV) vaccine will require long-term durable protection. Several ZIKV vaccine candidates have demonstrated protective efficacy in nonhuman primates, but these studies have typically involved ZIKV challenge shortly after vaccination at peak immunity. We show that a single immunization with an adenovirus vector–based vaccine, as well as two immunizations with a purified inactivated virus vaccine, afforded robust protection against ZIKV challenge in rhesus monkeys at 1 year after vaccination. In contrast, two immunizations with an optimized DNA vaccine, which provided complete protection at peak immunity, resulted in reduced protective efficacy at 1 year that was associated with declining neutralizing antibody titers to subprotective levels. These data define a microneutralization log titer of 2.0 to 2.1 as
