Supercomputing research opens doors for drug discoveryA quicker and cheaper technique to scan molecular databases were developed at the Department of Energy, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the scientists put on the fast track for development of new drug treatments. A team of Jerome Baudry of the University of Tennessee – ORNL Center for Molecular Biophysics led adapted a widely used existing software to allow supercomputers such as ORNL’s Jaguar to sift through immense molecular databases and pinpoint chemical compounds as potential drug candidates.

The study was published in the Journal of Computational Chemistry as ‘Task – parallel MPI implementation AutoDock4 for docking of very large databases of compounds using High Performance Super – Computers.’ ‘Our research is the missing link between supercomputers and the huge data in molecular databases such as the Human Genome Project,’Baudry said. ‘We have an avalanche of data available to us, and now we have to put this data into knowledge. ‘.

The researchers also found that the gold nanoparticles could be used as an effective tool in the cellular nano surgery. – We have found, ten years, they nanoparticles can play a double role in cellular manipulation use may have laser irradiation, we destroy the nanoparticles either to endothelial cells, as a measure to cut the blood supply to tumors or deliberately opened. The cell membrane, a drug efficient, said Dr. Kanaras.

Clinical Trial Results to DateIn the BHT-3021 Phase I / II study.


BHT-3021 is the safety and tolerability, proved without an increase in adverse events compared with placebo. Preliminary data from the 1 mg dose cohort indicate that treatment with BHT-3021 may cause beta cell preservation as well as the induction of immune tolerance to pancreatic autoantigens. – – Clinical Trial criteria Key inclusion criteria for this study were: a diagnosis of type 1a diabetes mellitus on ADA criteria, 5 years has T1D T1D, 18 years, 40 years at diagnosis of type 1 diabetes, detectable fasting C-peptide level, increasing C-peptide screening during mixed meal tolerance test, and presence of antibodies to at least one beta-cell antigen .

Is a disease that company’s product candidates, the immune system to its normal state are known as restore ‘tolerance ‘by selectively eliminating specific adverse immune reactions, while the rest of the immune system intact. The company has two lead product in clinical trials based on BHT – DNA, which the Company believes have demonstrated safety and tolerability. Beside preliminary efficacy The first product candidate, BHT-3009 was the subject of a completed Phase II clinical trial for MS. The second product candidate, BHT-3021, is currently in a Phase I / II clinical trial for type 1 diabetes . More information about Bayhill Therapeutics is available at..

Led high endotoxin exposures in homes that also had multiple dogs in less wheezing.


They found that wheezing was not independently associated with either another dog or cat ownership or high indoor endotoxin, however, led high endotoxin exposures in homes that also had multiple dogs in less wheezing. ‘specifies our research evidence that pet ownership offers a protective effect against the development of diseases of the lower respiratory tract in young children,’adds Bernstein.

Over the years there has been a lot of debate between low-fat and low-carb diets, which is the healthiest for you? Which works best? Now a study by Temple University’s Center for Obesity Research and Education, to increase both diets that help weight weight, but the low-carb diet seemed the HDL or good cholesterol in the body.

Many pregnant women may receive inappropriate care.


Many pregnant women may receive inappropriate care. For example, said 17 percent of women in childbirth Connection Mothers II survey involved national hearing in 2005, she had been induced because their caregiver was worried that the baby was too large. However, best evidence suggests that induction of labor is not favorable in this case. ‘We now know that every week of pregnancy counts in relation to brain and lung development if there is no good reason to terminate in order to become pregnant mothers and babies benefit from waiting to begin work on their own,’said Carol Sakala, director of programs, Childbirth Connection.

The study’s lead author, Ellen Mozurkewich, a mother- – fetal medicine specialist at the University of Michigan, said:. The best available evidence does not support routine inductions in many situations in which induction is currently recommended for patients More research is needed to assess the risks and benefits of induction in these situations. .

These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict. In a position tomay differ materially from these forward-looking statements because the Company’s unproven business model, its dependence on new technologies, the uncertainty and timing of clinical trials, the Company’s ability to develop and commercialize products, its dependence on staff for services and revenue, its substantial indebtedness and lease obligations, its changing requirements and costs associated with facilities, intense competition, the uncertainty of patent and intellectual property protection, the company’s dependence on key management and key suppliers, the uncertainty of regulation of products the impact of future alliances or transactions and other associated risks that are described in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The goal of the research is to develop an electronic used by physicians in used by doctors in kindergartens nationwide to prevent dramatic improvement in the prediction of risk for hyperbilirubinemia and complications due to late detection.

In the United States for bleeding of esophageal varices.


, ‘, ‘as countries the question of how to organize the best health care systems confront confront reach higher value, the study underlines the importance and the potential of a relationship with a primary care source with characteristics of a medical home. ‘.

Easy access to elective surgery has been cited as an advantage to the U.S. Healthcare system. But like in the U.S., the majority of patients waiting in Germany, New Zealand and Australia less than a month for elective or emergency surgery and not waiting for 6 months or more were rare in these countries and the Netherlands. In Canada and the UK, waiting for about 15 % of patients reported more than six months for elective or non-emergency surgery. In Britain waits dramatically compared with the 2001 Commonwealth Fund International Health Policy Survey, 28 % wait more than six months for elective surgery reported decreased.
