The researchers found that without ARID1A, some of the cells could not recover from radiation damage and died, says Shih.
Now, a discovery published in Science by scientists from the Growth Factors, Nutrients and Cancer Group at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) might be useful to protect healthy intestinal cells from radiation damage. The consequences of their findings in mice might radically change the way humans manage exposure to high levels of radiation; both for cancer research and treatment as well as for other areas like space explorations, nuclear warfare or nuclear accidents.
"Radiation damage is something you can't always see.
For their entry, the students wanted to recreate radiation damage to an organism by creating breaks into the DNA strands of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast.
Their topics include a polynomial-scaling algorithm for computing the probability of observing specified numbers of electrons in multiple domains using correlation functions, an application of the maximum principle in chemistry: a method to locate transition states, insights into molecular electronic structure from domain-averaged Fermi hole and bond order analysis using correlated density matrices, the effect of the solvent on the conformational behavior of the alanine dipeptide in explicit solvent simulations, and local environments in inorganic solids: from fast-ion conduction to radiation damage in oxides.
*Do you know that people can increase their resistance to cell phone radiation damage by taking increased dosage of antioxidants, melatonin, Vitamins B, C, E, and folic acid as these are natural oxidative stress fighters.
PLX cell products release a range of therapeutic proteins in response to inflammation, ischemia, muscle trauma, hematological disorders, and radiation damage. The cells are grown using the company's proprietary three-dimensional expansion technology and can be administered to patients off-the-shelf, without tissue matching.
In a test, conducted on rats with colon cancer, MSCs not only protected healthy tissue from radiation damage by increasing the levels of growth factors, they also reduced the development of residual tumor cells and slowed disease progression in the absence or presence of radiotherapy.
WASHINGTON -- The EPA is pursuing rule changes that experts say would weaken the way radiation exposure is regulated, turning to scientific outliers who argue that a bit of radiation damage is actually good for you -- like a little bit of sunlight.
Pluristem Therapeutics reported positive data from studies conducted in collaboration with Fukushima Medical University evaluating PLX-R18 cells as a treatment for radiation damage to the gastrointestinal tract and bone marrow.
In adults, the main underlying causes of SBS are major intestinal surgery following Crohn's disease, ischemia, radiation damage and surgery.
