Ohio State Team Prevents Heart Attacks With Gene Variation

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Feb 12, 2015

Though we often report on the miraculous effects of suppressing or expressing just one gene, very often changing a single gene has minimal impact. However, in some cases the combination of two genetic changes does something far more drastic than changing either gene individually. In a recent study published by The Ohio State University, a research team found two innocuous gene variants whose mutations work together to protect against heart attacks.

$1 Million Grant Awarded to UC Research Team for "Super-sunscreen"

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Jul 31, 2014

The heat of summer brings us out into the water and directly in the line of fire of the sun’s UV radiation. Many of us grumble about applying sunscreen and wish it could be simply applied once for the whole summer. Thanks to a $1 million grant from the National Cancer Institute, a research team at the University of Cincinnati is developing a topical cream that makes this fantasy possible by taking UV protection to a new level.

Cincinnati Bioresearchers Prove Harmful Effects of BPA Substitute

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Jul 03, 2014

As BPA-free bottles started becoming the norm, the Science Market Update published a prophetic article warning about the dangers of the new trend. The article cautioned that BPA substitutes had just as much potential for adverse health effects as the original compound. Recent research from the University of Cincinnati finally provides proof to back up this claim.

A Holistic Approach to Blood Cell Isolation at Ohio State

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, May 15, 2014

A challenging problem in biotechnology today is isolating an elusive type of blood cell that acts as a unique stem cell. Many believe it is too difficult a task to be worth the time and money. A research team at Ohio State University agrees with this belief, but sees no reason to despair: they instead propose an easier, more creative method to accomplish the same goal.

Cincinnati Bioresearch Discovers Detoxifying Junk Food

Posted by Sam Asher on Thu, Apr 10, 2014

Occasionally the most interesting discoveries are made simply by investigating a chance observation. Take for instance our earlier MSU blog about venom-resistant mice, whose analgesic usefulness was only realized after noticing that they didn’t seem to mind being stung by scorpions. Now at the University of Cincinnati, scientists have discovered a previously unknown property of a junk food ingredient that actually helps remove toxins from the body.
