Research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), USA, has found that the way tuberculosis (TB) vaccine is injected could improve its protection in monkeys.

NIH scientists showed that changing the dose and route of administration from intradermal (into the skin) to intravenous (into a vein) increased the vaccine’s ability to protect rhesus macaques from infection following exposure to the bacterium that causes TB.

Researchers at the University of Exeter, UK, have found a link between motor neurone disease (MND) and cholesterol, which could lead to new treatments.

Based on a review of studies in animal models (including mice and rats) and humans, the team identified 13 genes that can cause MND – a condition that affects the brain and nerves – and found that they were all involved in processing cholesterol.

The German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture gave its Animal Welfare Research Prize – for 3Rs research to reduce, replace or refine the use of animals – to Wiebke Albrecht, of Leibniz Research Centre for Working Environment and Human Factors.

Wiebke was recognised for her work to access and optimise ‘test tube’ studies (in vitro), which can be used to predict drug-induced liver injury and define the acceptable daily doses of drugs.

Researchers in the UK, and the Netherlands, have identified a new genetic brain disease.

Teams at The University of Manchester and University of Amsterdam / Universiteit van Amsterdam found that hereditary spastic paraplegias – a group of rare disorders that leads to weakness and stiffness in the leg muscles – is caused by changes in a gene (PCYT2).

Using zebrafish and cells from patients with the disease, they observed that fish with normal or reduced PCYT2 activity had better survival rates than those without the gene.Manchester researchers have contributed towards the discovery of a genetic brain disease which can cause paraplegia and epilepsy in sufferers.

US pharmaceutical company Biogen, has created the first drug that can slow the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

Evidence from studies in animals, showed the drug called Aducanumab targets a protein that accumulates abnormally in the brain of people with Alzheimer’s.

Following new analysis showing the reduction of clinical decline of patients in the early stages of the disease, Biogen now plans to seek regulatory approval for Aducanumab in the US.Drug company says it will seek permission in the US to start marketing the potentially ‘life-changing’ new drug.About this websiteBBC.COMFirst drug that can slow Alzheimer’s dementiaDrug company says it will seek permission in the US to start marketing the potentially ‘life-changing’ new drug.Drug company says it will seek permission in the US to start marketing the potentially ‘life-changing’ new drug.9950 SharesRodrigo CalLikeCommentShare

Researchers at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre, Madrid, have generated mice that live longer and in better health, without making any genetic alterations.

To achieve this the scientists created mice with abnormally long telomeres, which cap the ends of chromosomes and function to protect genetic information.

This study used no genetic alteration to create the mice, where 100% of their cells had elongated telomeres.A chance finding ten years ago led to the creation by researchers of the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) of the first mice born with much longer telomeres than normal in their species.

Burn specialists from Massachusetts General Hospital have succeeded in the first temporary closure of a burn wound using genetically engineered pig skin, a so-called ‘xenograft’.

Usually severe burn wounds need to be temporarily closed using human skin, to allow time for the patient to stabilize before grafting a section of their own skin over the wound. By using pig skin, this by-passes many of the current issues with using human skin, namely national shortages, expense, and…See MoreBurn specialists at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) announced today they have successfully used live-cell, genetically engineered pig skin (xenograft) for the temporary closure of a burn wound.

Researchers at the University of London have used zebrafish larvae to study how sleep is regulated in the brain. The findings could contribute to a better understanding of sleep disorders.

Scientists found that when brain activity of zebrafish larvae was artificially increased for a period of time, the larvae slept longer afterwards.The intensity of brain activity during the day, notwithstanding how long we’ve been awake, appears to increase our need for sleep, according to a new University of London (UCL) study in zebrafish.SLEEPREVIEWMAG.COMZebrafish Study Sheds Light on How Sleep Is Regulated in the Brain – Sleep ReviewThe intensity of brain activity during the day, notwithstanding how long we’ve been awake, appears to increase our need for sleep, according to a new University of London (UCL) study in zebrafish.The intensity of brain activity during the day, notwithstanding how long we’ve been awake, appears to increase our need for sleep, according to a new University of London (UCL) study in zebrafish.665 SharesRodrigo CalLikeCommentShare

Ethical concerns are increasing on the use of human brain organoid implants into animals to study neurological and other diseases.

Brain organoids are artificially grown from human stem cells to produce a ‘mini-brain’ that can resemble a human brain while implanted into a host animal.

A group of neuroscientists from Penn Medicine and the United States Department of Veterans Affairs have published a paper outlining the abilities of brain organoids, as well as suggesting a new ethical framework for their use.Penn neuroscientists call for an ethical framework grounded in scientific principles for transplanting human “mini-brains” into animals as the field evolves.About this websitePENNTODAY.UPENN.EDUMounting brain organoid research reignites ethical debate | Penn TodayPenn neuroscientists call for an ethical framework grounded in scientific principles for transplanting human “mini-brains” into animals as the field evolves.Penn neuroscientists call for an ethical framework grounded in scientific principles for transplanting human “mini-brains” into animals as the field evolves.223 SharesRodrigo CalLikeCommentShare

  • Joey Smokes Honestly, information this basic sets off alarm bells about the quality of animal research / care in some European countries.

    If you are not already doing these things, it can only be due to ignorance , laziness or lack of suitable legislation & care.Hide or report this
