Uses new incubator space to commercialize UCLA TechnologyUCLA has a new technology incubation space within the California NanoSystems Institute be opened to Matrix Sensors Inc., a start-up , the development of multi-channel gas and biological sensors based on technology developed by UCLA and Stanford University researchers.
Pediatric Prosthetics has stated that up to 12,000 pre-adolescent children in the United States may be in need of prosthetic rehabilitation, based on the fact that around 1,000 children are born each year with a limb loss in the United States, after the limb loss research and Statistics program. During their high growth years in age from 1 to 12 years, these children are candidates for upgrading at least once a year. (more…)
Blackburn shares the award with Carol W. Greider of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Jack W. Szostak of Harvard Medical School.The scientists discovered an enzyme that plays an important role in normal cell function as well as in cell aging, and most cancers. The enzyme is called telomerase , and it produces tiny units of DNA, the sealing of the ends of chromosomes containing the endogenous genes. These DNA units – named telomeres – protect the integrity of genes and maintain chromosomal stability and accurate cell division. They also determine the number of times a cell divides – and thus determine the lifespan of the cells..
Telomere is pronounced .The scientists research sparked a whole field to study the possibility three decades of could be reactivated age-related diseases age-related diseases such as blindness, cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative diseases, and deactivated cancer, in which cancer, in which there is usually overactive.
Blackburn joined the UCSF faculty in 1990 and is the Morris Herzstein Endowed Chair in Biology and Physiology in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics.Is the fourth UCSF scientist to win the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine.native of Australia, Blackburn has lived in the U.S. (more…)

JUPITER included only people with high C-reactive protein and none of the participants they had see if they had evidence of calcium in their coronary arteries. Blaha says, it could not be determined from JUPITER, whether people with low C-reactive protein in the same manner of statin therapy, or as the presence of coronary calcium can benefit have affected the results.
Blaha and colleagues identified a group of participants in MESA, had the high C-reactive protein and fit the criteria for JUPITER. The researchers also a group selected from the MESA low levels of C-reactive protein had. To compare were able to compare directly, the prognostic significance of coronary calcium C-reactive protein.. In their study, the researchers determined that high levels of C-reactive protein in the blood, a score at or above 2 milligrams per liter, offered little predictive value after accounting for such risk factors as age, gender, ethnicity, hypertension, obesity, diabetes, Smoking and a family history of heart disease.
All the participants in the MESA study had coronary CT scanning, as calcium scoring test subject known. (more…)
