Texas Medical Center Researchers Closer to Cause of Huntington's

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Wed, Nov 30, 2016

Researchers at Texas Medical Center’s Rice University recently discovered that Huntington’s Disease might be triggered by a repeating nucleotide sequence in the gene for a mutant protein. The research team conducted this study by analyzing proteins that were suspected to misfold and form plaques in the brains of patients with neurological diseases.

Texas A&M Gains Research Funding to Study Post-Traumatic Epilepsy

Posted by Rebecca Partridge on Wed, Oct 26, 2016

Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is the leading cause of disability among U.S. military personnel and veterans. What’s more, 50% of people with TBI develop spontaneous seizures. If the seizures become recurrent then the condition qualifies as Post-Traumatic Epilepsy, PTE. Now thanks to a 3 year, $750,000 research grant from the Department of Defense and the Army, researchers at Texas A&M will conduct a study on TBI to uncover the molecular and epigenetic mechanism of PTE.

UT Austin Science Researchers Compare Physical and Emotional Pain

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Tue, Sep 09, 2014

If you have ever had a severe headache, you may have noticed how pain takes a toll on your emotional state, especially if you have ever experienced a migraine. Taking pain medication can help with how a headache feels physically, but what effects does pain relief have on people emotionally? Believe it or not, a number of studies have been conducted on how pain medication like ibuprofen can ameliorate emotional pain. Research has proven that ibuprofen can indeed relieve emotional stress, but scientists at the University of Texas, Austin have recently discovered that it is much more effective on women than on men. Men who take the drug say that they experience harsher feelings of rejection, while women report feeling better.

Glaucoma Treatment Market Grows Within Texas Medical Center and U.S.

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Wed, Dec 04, 2013

The traditional glaucoma treatment market for Americans suffering from glaucoma has been limited in the past, but Texas Medical Center doctors now have access to a new, minimally invasive treatment available only at the Houston Methodist Hospital. Glaucoma causes increased fluid pressure on the eye and cause blindness if it goes untreated. Traditional treatments include eye drops and surgery, which entails cutting a small hole in the eye to drain the fluid. (Texas Medical Center)
