10 percent do not know2) There are now many sophisticated drug safety testing.

* Written reply from Home Office Minister Caroline Flint to parliamentary questions by Mike Hancock MP – Contact Information for Journalists of the EFMA, 0779 228 9066/ 01728 451436 the above questions were:1) Is that animal data can be misleading when applied to humans? 8 percent no, 10 percent do not know2) There are now many sophisticated drug safety testing, including pharmacogenetic studies using DNA chips, virtual human metabolism prediction programs and micro-dosing studies in which volunteers monitored using PET and other scanners. Do you want more confidence in a battery of tests as human – animal test data? 21 percent no, 28 percent do not know.

– The clinical relevance of animal testing must urgently analysis – a fact now accepted by the medical profession, but not by the government, which ‘has not commissioned or evaluated any formal research on the effectiveness of animal testing and has no plans to do so ‘.* A paper in the BMJ on 28 medicine is much in February 2004 asked: ‘Where is the evidence that animal testing benefits people? ‘If such evidence is not found, should benefit from the practice to refrain patients because they are not damaged by misleading data and also because the resources pouring currently in animal studies will be freed for clinical research..

Media Look At Regional Effect Of China’s droughtstudied in view of the first – ever summit of Mekong nations, the celebrated participating countries China’s move to share data on reservoir levels, affect Bloomberg / BusinessWeek, the drought more than 60 million people in the countries along Asia’s Mekong River. The drought has increased control over the management of the river, because the governments want to for to generate electricity and food. China’s ability to improve water flows is limited as the river low, mainly due to a lack of rainfall rainfall, said Jeremy Bird, Chief Executive Officer of the Commission, a regional body of the governments advise on the management of the basin Increased flows from China’s dams in January has alleviate the severity of the water shortage, he said: (Kate..

AUTHORS: Tontonoz cooperation with Noam Zelcer, Cynthia Hong and Rima Boyadjian. The research was funded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. Tontonoz and Zelcer have filed a patent on the research findings.

IMPACT: The findings suggest that the development of a drug that interferes with Idol activity could influence cholesterol metabolism and lower levels of bad cholesterol. Doctors could the new drug in conjunction with statin drugs which also cut cholesterol levels by targeting a different enzyme, which prescribe the LDL receptor This could benefit patients, who can not tolerate statin side effects.

The task was daunting.

– Zhang adds that the project would never have happened without interdisciplinary collaboration: ‘Biologists would this kind of this type of machine, but a physicist question asked the question,’he said.. The task was daunting. ‘No one in their right mind would try to find a place to take out of a molecular structure a molecular structure from it,’said Zhang.However, Zhang said that he in the mood by Francis Crick, the legendary biologist, physicistble-helix structure of DNA with James Watson believes expressed that: You need big big questions in order to get great answers.

A paper in the a paper in the July 2009 issue published by Science, the researchers describe the novel application of ZFNs to rats with permanent, heritable gene mutations produce paving the way for the development of novel genetically modified animal models of human disease. ZFN technology is the production of such animals and is faster to create new opportunities in species other than mice.

Inactivation of rat IgM expression is the first step in generating rat encoding exclusively express human antibodies by transgenic human immunoglobulin genes. ‘Creating a knockout rat was the biggest challenge OMT faced,’said Dr. Roland Buelow, CEO of OMT and a senior author of the paper. ‘Inactivation of endogenous rat antibody expression is essential for expression of human antibodies in genetically animals. ZFN problem, we ZFN technology used in an application, the potential of animals animal genetic engineering.’ ‘We have invested our time and resources to develop the CompoZr platform because we have a tremendous potential in a precisely precisely manipulate the genome of living organisms see,’said Dr. David Smoller, President of Sigma-Aldrich Research Biotech business unit.

Together, the countries that are home to more than 400 million people in danger of meningitis, which in in 10 and leaving many others with hearing loss, mental retardation and epilepsy.. A Meningitis Vaccine for Africapublic health officials in Burkina Faso will soon begin immunizing people aged 1 to 29 with a new vaccine people thatpected epidemics of Group A meningitis will end in 25 countries central part of the central part of the continent of Africa from Senegal to Ethiopia. The area, known as the meningitis belt is susceptible to meningitis epidemics because of his six-month dry season when winds whip dust, what the people cough and sneeze. Marc LaForce, Director of the Meningitis Vaccine Project, a partnership between WHO and PATH discuss the known roll-out the vaccine MenAfriVac beginning in November or December in Burkina Faso and then to other at – risk countries.

The researchers said.

The same technique could be used to elucidate places of importance for other species in their natural environment, the researchers said, and connected to the understanding of the patterns of brain activity with such places. Is is this line of research can help us to understand how the[animal] brain works in the real world. .

When pigeons pass over visual landmarks, their brains show a two-phase activation pattern consisting of high-frequency oscillations followed by middle – frequency activity, they report. The mid – frequency activity is the most reliable indicator of visual stimulation, was said. Once pigeons considered to something with attention, this increased activity. . Continue reading
