The success warrants further development and testing in people with West Nile disease.

Disease and Condition
KCP is first protein found to directly enhance signals from bone morphogenetic proteins that control kidney development and disease.
New insights into how the body eliminates dead cells could lead to new approaches for treating conditions including lupus and cancer, or for preventing infections following trauma.
The chronic, progressive disease is the leading cause of visual impairment and legal blindness in the elderly.
Cells affected by Hutchinson Gilford Progeria Syndrome (HGPS), a disease associated with premature aging, can be made healthy again, according to findings by scientists at the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
Scientists may have identified the genetic basis underlying essential tremor disease, the most common human movement disorder.
Identifying the risk factors for infection is critical because the U.S. population is aging and becoming more overweight, with complications such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
Scientists searching for genes that go awry and cause disease can use the NCI database as a crucial point of reference because it pinpoints which genes are expressed in many of the body's major organs under normal conditions (without known disease).
Statins, a class of medications widely used for lowering cholesterol, may not only help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, but may also help prevent the most common form of glaucoma.
Researchers have identified specific clusters of genes within human aortas that appear to predict with great specificity which patients may be at highest risk for developing atherosclerosis, as well as the severity of the disease.
While physicians often recommend exercise to help relieve the symptoms of peripheral arterial obstructive disease (PAOD), a potentially debilitating disorder that afflicts one in eight Americans, they have done so without fully understanding why it seems to help.
Scientists have deciphered the genomes of two closely related strains of Cryptococcus neoformans, a fungus and the increased use of immunosuppressive therapies. The disease caused by the fungus, cryptococcosis, sometimes involves a fatal brain inflammation.
Patients with age related macular degeneration (AMD) experience significant improvement in their quality of life following a surgical procedure called "macular translocation with 360 degree peripheral retinectomy" (MT360). AMD is an eye disease that may lead to vision loss in the central region of a person's visual field, a defect that can seriously impact a patient's quality of life.
A gene has been implicated in human disease. The discovery, together with earlier findings of genes that can also cause the genetically heterogeneous and debilitating disease, is providing new insight into the nervous system.
A new understanding of the causes for symptoms of sickle cell disease, a condition affecting one in every 600 African Americans, has resulted from a study by researchers at Duke University Medical Center and Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI). Findings may lead to a new method for treating the disease.
A highly sensitive post mortem test could help scientists more accurately determine if a person died of Creutzfeldt Jakob disease (CJD), a human neurological disorder caused by the same class of infectious proteins that trigger mad cow disease
Approval of pegaptanib sodium injection (Macugen), a new therapy to slow vision loss in people with the eye disease neovascular (wet) age related macular degeneration (AMD).
Aging is an inevitable and a normal part of life, but many of the effects of aging can be prevented. Certain natural therapies are effective in fighting these types of age-related diseases.
People who have early stage Alzheimer's disease could be more capable of learning. Older people who are in the early stages of Alzheimer's can be taught techniques to help stay engaged in everyday life.
Disease severity in patients with ulcerative colitis can be evaluated accurately in clinical practice and research trials without frequent lower endoscopies, research found.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. One of the leading causes of heart disease is atherosclerosis, which is the gradual build up of fat, or plaque, on the walls of the blood vessels.
While epilepsy has long been thought to boost production of new brain cells (neurons) as a means of repairing injury, a new study shows that chronic seizures actually decrease new neuron production in the brain's learning and memory center.
When going in for an exam with the doctor or health care practitioner, have you ever been told that researchers believe that 90% of all disease and disorders begin in the digestive tract?
ONE SICKNESS, ONE DISEASE: MYCOTIC INFECTION. One of my discoveries is that there is only one sickness, and that is the over acidification of the blood and tissues caused by an inverted way of eating and living. Our present day civilized food with its abundance of sugar and animal protein, especially meat, fish, eggs and dairy products, causes this over acidification of the blood.
