In collaboration with Stefan Somlo, Chief of Nephrology at Yale School of Medicine, who was discovered in the PKD2 gene triptolide tested in a mouse model of PKD. Both fewer and smaller cysts in PKD1 mice when therapeutic therapeutic amounts of triptolide formed. ‘Our research shows that triptolide, an active ingredient of the TCM Lei Gong Teng, markedly decreases cyst formation in a mouse model of the common genetic lethal kidney disease, ‘Crews said. ‘Our findings offer a new therapeutic approach for this deadly disease and highlight the potential of TCM as pharmaceutical sources. ‘.

More than 12 million people worldwide suffer from PKD, a genetic disorder that causes uncontrolled growth of cells lining tubules lead to the formation leads to the formation of many, large fluid-filled cysts in the kidneys. – Unfortunately, aside from kidney transplantation, there was no cure for PKD, nor does it have an appropriate drug treatment slow its progression slow its progression, said Crews, associate professor of chemistry, molecular, cellular and developmental biology and pharmacology.

Long-term follow-up study.

This Phase 1 study was an important first step towards finding a viable treatment and to extend the life of children with this devastating disease Initial results associated with regard to safety in transplantation of a significant cell dose are certainly promising, more studies HuCNS-SC cells is warranted for infantile and late – infantile NCL, as well as for exploring this cell therapy approach for other diseases of the central nervous system, concluded Dr.. The study data show that HuCNS-SC transplantation in combination with immunosuppression well well tolerated by all six patients.

The investigators also found that the risk was increased especially during the first 28 days, which occurred about a fifth of suicides. The authors concluded that a lack of continuity of care for people with mental disorders and to find accommodation accommodation difficulties in the release may contribute towards the higher risk of suicide in recently released prisoners.

Once we confirm the importance of this structural information

‘Once we confirm the importance of this structural information, we should be able to design drugs to block this action,’said Prasad. ‘There are other things to do the protein in order could interfere with various defense mechanisms . We do not know if this is the only mechanism, or whether there are other, also also come into play during influenza virus infection. ‘.

However contribute the two domains of NS1 in the H5N1 form tiny tubes. The double-stranded RNA is hidden or sequestered in these structures. The cell never sees a significant length of the RNA and not marshal his defenses to fight the virus. Prasad and Bornholdt believe also that cellular binding sites found on the surface of of the tubes also deceiving the immune system play a role. ‘This is just a structure,’said Prasad. ‘We have to see if it holds with other NS1 structures from other influenza viruses. ‘.
