'Ageotypes' provide window into how individuals age, Stanford study reports

Stanford University School of Medicine

What's your type? That question could gain new meaning, thanks to scientists who've categorized how humans age into different classes dubbed "ageotypes," reports a new study from the Stanford University School of Medicine.

Gluten Exposure from School Supplies? Study Assesses Classroom Gluten Risks for Kids with Celiac Disease

Wolters Kluwer Health: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

Common classroom activities – such as playing with Play-Doh or uncooked pasta – have little or no potential to cause harmful gluten exposure in children with celiac disease, reports a study in the Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition (JPGN). Official journal of the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (NASPGHAN) and the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, JPGN is published by Wolters Kluwer.

Newswise: Versatile Bile Acids

Versatile Bile Acids

Harvard Medical School

Could bile acids—the fat-dissolving juices churned out by the liver and gallbladder—also play a role in immunity and inflammation? The answer appears to be yes, according to two separate Harvard Medical School studies published in Nature.

Newswise: Breakthrough study on molecular interactions could improve development of new medicines

Breakthrough study on molecular interactions could improve development of new medicines

University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering

A first-of-its-kind study on molecular interactions by biomedical engineers in the University of Minnesota’s College of Science and Engineering will make it easier and more efficient for scientists to develop new medicines and other therapies for diseases such as cancer, HIV, and autoimmune diseases. The study resulted in a mathematical framework that researchers plan to use to develop a web-based app that other researchers can use to speed the development of new therapies for diseases.

Newswise: Research Adds New Twist to Fight Against Autoimmune Diseases

Research Adds New Twist to Fight Against Autoimmune Diseases

Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center

Scientists describe in Nature Immunology an entirely new molecular process in mice that triggers T cell-driven inflammation and causes different auto-immune diseases. In a study published online Dec. 17, researchers report their data have implications for Multiple Sclerosis, Type 1 diabetes and Inflammatory Bowel Disease. It also will help efforts to find better treatments for autoimmune disease, still an urgent need in medicine.
