What are the mechanisms of zooxanthella expulsion from coral?
Coral bleaching, which often results in the mass mortality of corals and in the collapse of coral reef ecosystems, has become an important issue around the world, with the number of coral reefs decreasing annually. Our research group with its collaborators demonstrated that corals more actively digest and expel damaged symbiotic zooxanthellae under conditions of thermal stress, and that this is likely to be a mechanism that helps corals to cope with environmental change.

Newly identified antibodies effectively treat Alzheimer's-like disease in mice
Alzheimer's disease is characterized by the accumulation of particular toxic proteins in the brain that are believed to underlie the cognitive decline in patients. A new study conducted in mice suggests that newly identified antibody treatments can prevent the accumulation of one of these of these toxic components, called tau proteins. The findings suggest that these antibodies may provide a basis for a promising therapy for patients with Alzheimer's disease and other neurodegenerative disorders. (2013-09-26)

Consuming probiotics for a month helps diminish fat accumulation in the liver, new study says
Spanish scientists have demonstrated through an experiment on obese rats that the consumption of probiotics during thirty days helps diminish the accumulation of fat in the liver. This new finding, published today by the journal PLOS ONE, is a great step forward on the fight agains the Non-Alcolohic Fatty Liver Disease, which is closely related to obesity and diabetes. (2014-07-18)

Protein inhibitor tangles with Alzheimer's disease
A hallmark of Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the abnormal accumulation of phosphorylated forms of a protein known as tau. In a new study, Mayo Clinic researchers have now shown in mice that a drug that inhibits the function of the protein Hsp90 (EC102) reduces the amount of phosphorylated tau in the brain. Unlike many drugs, EC102 is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, making it a highly promising therapeutic candidate for AD. (2007-02-15)
