Intelligence in men and women is a gray and white matter - While there are essentially no disparities in general intelligence between the sexes, a UC Irvine study has found significant differences in brain areas where males and females manifest their intelligence.

Antibody treatment partially reverses nerve damage in Alzheimer disease - Researchers from Washington University School of Medicine have shown that an antibody treatment administered to the brain surface in mice with Alzheimer disease is capable of rapidly reversing disease-related structural nerve damage. The study will appear online on January 20 in advance of print publication in the February 1 issue of the Journal of Clinical Investigation.

Protein adiponectin appears protective against heart disease - Reduced blood concentrations of a protein specific to fat tissue called adiponectin appear to indicate a significant risk of cardiovascular disease in one of the first studies to focus on risk of the disorder among patients with diabetes mellitus type 1, previously known as juvenile diabetes.

Mouse brain cells rapidly recover after Alzheimer's plaques are cleared - Brain cells in a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease have surprised scientists with their ability to recuperate after the disorder's characteristic brain plaques are removed.

T cells target HIV in a relationship on the rebound - After a break in antiretroviral drug therapy in HIV-positive patients, the virus rebounds and begins to multiply. While this was feared to destroy, perhaps irreversibly, patient HIV-specific CD4+ T cells that are preferentially infected by the virus, researchers at the University of Oxford have now shown that it actually boosts HIV-specific T cell production and activation, thereby boosting the immune response to the virus.

Molecule predicts colon cancer patient survival - Harvard researchers have examined the factors that help spur the progression of colorectal cancer and identified the integrin alpha]v[beta]6 as an important risk factor for development of early-stage disease. They further demonstrate that detection of high levels of this molecule is able to predict patient survival for colorectal cancer, a disease that kills over 55, 000 Americans each year.

Low-dose aspirin and stomach ulcer medications better for heart patients with GI complications - Heart patients with gastrointestinal complications should use low doses of aspirin combined with drugs that treat stomach ulcers rather than taking the anti-platelet drug Plavix, which has been thought to reduce bleeding ulcers, according to a gastroenterologist at UT Southwestern Medical Center and the Dallas Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

New cancer gene identified by Memorial Sloan-Kettering scientists - Oncogenes are genes that, when mutated or dysfunctional, lead normal cells to become cancerous. The investigators have named the gene POKEMON (for POK Erythroid Myeloid Ontogenic factor). The work is being published in the January 20, 2005, issue of Nature.
