Allergens Widespread in Largest Study of U.S. Homes

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 09:00:00 -0500

Allergens are widespread, but highly variable in U.S. homes, according to the nation’s largest indoor allergen study to date. Researchers from the National Institutes of Health report that over 90 percent of homes had three or more detectable allergens, and 73 percent of homes had at least one allergen at elevated levels. The findings were published November 30 in the Journal of Allergy and ...

DNA Damage Caused by Cancer Treatment Reversed by ZATT Protein

Fri, 6 Oct 2017 00:00:00 -0400

An international team led by scientists at the National Institutes of Health is the first to discover a new way that cells fix an important and dangerous type of DNA damage known as a DNA-protein crosslink (DPC). The researchers found that a protein named ZATT can eliminate DPCs with the help of another protein, TDP2. Since DPCs form when individuals receive some types of cancer treatments, unders...

NIH researchers reveal novel insights into how sex-specific reproductive systems arise A protein called COUP-TFII determines whether a mouse embryo develops a male reproductive tract, according to researchers at the National Institutes of Health and their colleagues at Baylor College of Medicine, Houston. The discovery, which appeared August 18 in the journal Science, changes the long-standing bel...

Baby Teeth Link Autism and Heavy Metals, NIH Study Suggests

Thu, 1 Jun 2017 09:00:00 -0400

Baby teeth from children with autism contain more toxic lead and less of the essential nutrients zinc and manganese, compared to teeth from children without autism, according to an innovative study funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), part of the National Institutes of Health. The researchers studied twins to control genetic influences and focus on possible en...

NIH Research Improves Health for People with Asthma

Mon, 1 May 2017 09:00:00 -0400

May is Asthma Awareness Month, and the National Institutes of Health is finding solutions to improve the health of the nearly 25 million people in the United States who currently have asthma. In recent decades, the prevalence of asthma has been increasing, resulting in millions of urgent medical visits and missed days of work and school each year. Asthma is a chronic, and sometimes fatal, disease ...

Antidepressant May Enhance Drug Delivery to the Brain

Thu, 27 Apr 2017 09:00:00 -0400

NIH rat study suggests amitriptyline temporarily inhibits the blood-brain barrier, allowing drugs to enter the brain. New research from the National Institutes of Health found that pairing the antidepressant amitriptyline with drugs designed to treat central nervous system diseases, enhances drug delivery to the brain by inhibiting the blood-brain barrier in rats. The blood-brain barrier serves as...
