2795 - AMICOR 19

Para nos despedirmos de 2016:
Tenhamos em nossas convicções. Mesmo na incerteza nos servem com uma bússola apontando uma direção.
Não percamos a ESPERANÇA de que dias melhores ainda poderão vir. A vida nos ensina sobre os ciclos de evolução e desenvolvimento.
O AMOR pode nos dar força, aliviar o sofrimento, e revelar o sentido de viver.
Feliz ano novo do Google!

Experimental Brain Cancer Treatment Is a Success - Alice Park @aliceparkny Dec. 28, 2016 Using the immune system to beat cancer is quickly becoming a promising new strategy for battling tumors. But most of the success so far has been with blood cancers like lymphomas and leukemias. Immunotherapy, as it’s called, has yet to prove itself with solid tumors like breast, prostate, lung, colon and brain cancers. But in a report published in the *New England Journal of Medicine*, researchers led by Dr. Behnam Badie from the City of Hope Beckman Research Institute and Medical Center say... mais »

*A new study reports the gut microbiota can modulate serotonin transporter activity.* *Source: University of Exeter.* Scientists at the University of Exeter Medical School and University of Zaragoza in Spain studied a protein known as TLR2, a critical detector of the microbiota found in the intestine. They found that it regulates levels of serotonin – a neurotransmitter which carries messages to the brain, and is also found in the gut, where it regulates our bowel routines.

Study details molecular roots of Alzheimer's Scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have detailed the structure of a molecule that has been implicated in Alzheimer's disease. Knowing the shape of the molecule - and how that shape may be disrupted by certain genetic mutations - can help in understanding how Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases develop and how to prevent and treat them. The study is published in the journal *eLife*. The idea that the molecule TREM2 is involved in cognitive decline - the hallmark of neurodegenerative diseases, inc... mais »
