Ginkgo biloba treatment enhances neurogenesis and improves recovery following a stroke in mice

Stroke is a fourth leading cause of death and a major cause of long-term disability, which inflicts substantial economic and societal burdens. Drug therapies aimed at post-stroke recovery that can enhance endogenous neurogenesis may help minimize the cost related to prolonged hospital stays and rehabilitation. Ginkgo biloba, a widely studied herbal product for the treatment of neurological disorders, offers endogenous neurogenesis-enhancing properties that hold the promise of providing recovery-improving benefits to stroke patients.

Strategies to preserve myelin during secondary degeneration following neurotrauma

Following injury to the central nervous system, functional loss is exacerbated by spreading damage causing secondary degeneration of surrounding tissue. Using a model of secondary degeneration where the optic nerve is partially transected, has allowed demonstration of oxidative stress and myelin abnormalities in nerve vulnerable to spreading damage. Therapeutic strategies designed to reduce oxidative stress and dysmyelination, including combination of calcium channel inhibitors, prevent the functional loss of secondary degeneration in this model.

Also of interest from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences

Using a meta-analytical technique called harmonization, a study finds that prior estimates of life cycle greenhouse gas emissions from electricity generated from shale gas, considering supply chain leakage of 1-6%, are similar to those from conventionally produced natural gas, and that both energy sources emit approximately half the greenhouse gas emissions tied to coal-powered electricity.

Parenting, socioeconomic status, and inflammation in children

Nurturing parents may partially counteract inflammation, an overactivated state of the immune system that underlies many health problems, in children of low socioeconomic status (SES), according to a study. Children of low SES often experience poorer health than children of higher SES at all stages of life, including lower birth weights at infancy, higher rates of obesity and diabetes during childhood, and higher rates of age-related cardiovascular disease and cancer.

Nervous system involvement in asthma

A study in a mouse model of asthma demonstrates that sensory neurons in the lungs are key mediators of airway constrictions characteristic of an acute asthma attack, suggesting a need to develop asthma treatments that target the nervous system rather than only the immune system. People with asthma suffer chronic lung obstructions due to excessive mucus production as well as acute attacks in which allergens can cause airways to constrict.

Appetite suppression relies on histamine neurotransmitter system

Appetite suppression in satiated mice that follows consumption of dietary fats relies on the brain’s histamine neurotransmitter system, according to a study. Feelings of hunger and satiety are regulated by the interplay of food stimuli and neurotransmitter systems within the body.

Southward excursions of Arctic water and transition to Ice Age

Progressive southward advances and retreats of cold Arctic water likely triggered regional cooling and accelerated the transition into the most recent glacial age, a study finds. Prior to the most recent 11,000 years, a time of climatic quiescence that allowed humans to flourish, the last extended warm period on Earth occurred during the interglacial period around 125,000 years ago.

Environmental costs of meat, egg, and dairy production

The environmental burdens imposed by beef production far exceed the burdens imposed by other types of livestock and plant staples, according to a study. The environmental impacts of feed production, a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions and water pollution, vary by livestock type.

Study examines effect on pregnancy of receiving antiretroviral therapy for prevention of HIV

Among heterosexual African couples in which the male was HIV positive and the female was not, receipt of antiretroviral pre-exposure preventive (PrEP) therapy did not result in significant differences in pregnancy incidence, birth outcomes, and infant growth compared to females who received placebo, according to a study in the July 23/30 issue of JAMA, a theme issue on HIV/AIDS. The authors note that these findings do not provide a definitive conclusion regarding the safety of PrEP therapy prior to pregnancy.

Offering option of initial HIV care at home increases use of antiretroviral therapy

Among adults in the African country of Malawi offered HIV self-testing, optional home initiation of care compared with standard HIV care resulted in a significant increase in the proportion of adults initiating antiretroviral therapy, according to a study in the July 23/30 issue of JAMA, a theme issue on HIV/AIDS. The issue is being released early to coincide with the International AIDS Conference.

High-valued biomass resource is promising

The next 20 years will be a critical period for the high-valued utilization of the waste biomass. However, the inherent defects of the biomass constrain its explorations. Nano-fibrillated cellulose is a new family of nature-based material with greatly promising features. To show the latest researches and promote the rapid developments of the biomass in China, a special seminar of “Biomass Nano-fibrillated Cellulose and Aerogel” was hold by Science & Technology Review in 4/5 tissue of 2014.

Protein products of human genome still a mystery

Well-known genes that undergo a little alternative engineering can still surprise us, a new study reports, producing protein products for biological uses scientists haven’t previously recognized. This is important since most human genes are alternatively engineered, or spliced, many times -- though actual studies of the resulting protein products are lacking.

'Gene drives' demand attention, researchers say

Before "gene drives" are considered for uses like reprogramming mosquito genomes to eliminate malaria, or reversing the development of pesticide resistance, gaps in regulations that cover this technology – which involves editing genes -- must be filled, according to the authors of this Policy Forum. It’s time for a “broadly inclusive and well-informed” public discussion about the future of gene drives, they say.

New strategy for feeding more while protecting the environment

A new report by Paul West and colleagues suggests that focusing on a relatively short list of regions, crops and actions could provide new opportunities to improve global food security while simultaneously decreasing agriculture’s environmental footprint. The study, which advances previous work aimed at providing food for a growing population, zooms in on three broad areas that have the greatest potential for reducing negative environmental impacts of agriculture while also boosting food supply.
