Alcoholics may benefit from multimillion-dollar grant for opioid-blocking implant, says Anaheim company

It’s a well-known and lethal problem: About 90 percent of recovering addicts relapse and use drugs such as heroin again. The overwhelming majority of these falls from grace occur within one month of successfully completing treatment, and the results can be deadly, according to several studies. BioCorRX, a small Anaheim company, believes it can help break this vicious cycle, and the National Institute on Drug Abuse is inclined to agree. The institute — part of the National Institutes of Health — ...

Stimulating this part of the brain causes ‘uncontrollable urge to laugh’

In a study of epilepsy patients undergoing electrical stimulation brain mapping, scientists discovered that the stimulation of the cingulum bundle reliably produced laughter, smiles and calm feelings.The findings could someday help scientists develop better treatments for anxiety, depression and chronic pain.One obstacle preventing this kind of treatment from becoming accessible is that it requires invasive surgery, though improved technology could someday change that. None Electrically stimulat...

NIH "Inclusion Across the Lifespan" policy supports research involving underrepresented age groups

The pipeline of research supporting care as we age is about to look a bit more like the country it serves--and for good reason. Beginning this year, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), America's premier institution for medical research, will for the first time in its history require NIH-funded scholars to eliminate arbitrary age limits in their work, age limits that previously allowed for excluding groups like older people without just cause.

Hyperactive immune system implicated in aging brain disorders

In a study of fruit flies, NIH scientists suggested that the body's immune system may play a critical role in the damage caused by aging brain disorders. The results are based on experiments in which the researchers altered the activity of Cdk5, a gene that preclinical studies have suggested is important for early brain development and may be involved in neurodegenerative diseases, such as ALS, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

Study investigates attitudes toward implementation of 'sex as a biological variable' policy

In 2016, the National Institutes of Health implemented a policy which requires grant applicants to "consider sex as a biological variable" in vertebrate animal and human studies. A new study surveyed NIH study section members in 2016 and 2017 regarding their attitudes toward the policy and found that a majority of respondents thought that it was important to consider SABV in the experimental design and that considering SABV would improve the rigor and reproducibility of NIH-funded preclinical re...

A plant so spicy it can destroy nerves, giving pain relief

The Moroccan Euphorbia resinifera plant produces a resin so spicy that it attains a whopping 16,000,000,000 on the Scoville scale, 10,000x hotter than a Carolina reaper chili. The active ingredient in this resin is resiniferatoxin, AKA RTX, which has proven incredible promising in early animal trials for treating chronic pain. Dogs with joint pain are anesthetized and injected with RTX, which destroys their nerve endings and makes them incapable of sensing pain until the nerves regenerate, ...

NIH researchers shed light on causes of HBV-associated acute liver failure

National Institutes of Health scientists and their collaborators found that hepatitis B virus-associated acute liver failure--a rare condition that can turn fatal within days without liver transplantation--results from an uncommon encounter between a highly mutated HBV variant and an unusual immune response in the patient's liver that is mainly sustained by antibody-producing B cells.
