Research identifies promising route for treating age-related hearing loss - Howard Hughes Medical Institute researchers have discovered that deletion of a specific gene permits the proliferation of new hair cells in the cochlea of the inner ear -- a finding that offers promise for treatment of age-related hearing loss. This type of hearing loss is caused by aging, disease, certain drugs, and the cacophony of modern life. It is the most common cause of hearing loss in older people.

Scientists decipher genome of fungus that can cause life-threatening infections - Researchers have deciphered the genomes of two closely related strains of Cryptococcus neoformans, a fungus whose importance as a human pathogen has risen in parallel with the HIV/AIDS worldwide epidemic and the increased use of immunosuppressive therapies. The study already has boosted an important field of biomedical research.

A site for sore eyes: New target for allergies found under the eyelid - Scientists have found a protein in the eye which plays a critical role in how an allergic response develops over a 24-hour period. The University College London (UCL) team hope their discovery will pave the way for new treatments for allergic diseases such as asthma, eczema and hay fever.

MGH researchers find way of regenerating cells key to hearing - Selectively turning off a protein that controls the growth and division of cells could allow regeneration of the inner ear's hair cells, which convert sound vibrations into nerve impulses. The discovery runs counter to current beliefs about these cells and could eventually lead to ways of preventing or treating hearing loss.

New network of gastrointestinal immune cells discovered - A previously unknown network of immune cells has been discovered in the mammalian gastrointestinal system. The finding could lead to better understanding of how the immune system recognizes and responds to dangerous bacteria and viruses and to new approaches to immunization and infectious disease treatment.
