Home Health Health on January 22, 2022 Scientists in the US have identified tiny natural bubbles containing the ACE2 protein (evACE2) in the blood of COVID-19 patients that can block infection from broad strains of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The evACE2 are lipid vesicles in nanoparticle size that express the ACE2 protein on cells. These bubbles act as decoys to lure the SARS-CoV-2 virus away from the ACE2 protein, which acts as a gateway for the virus to infect cells. The evACE2 can serve as a therapeutic to be developed for prevention and treatment for current and future strains of SARS-CoV-2 and subsequent coronaviruses, the researchers said. Once developed as a therapeutic product, evACE2 have the potential to benefit people as a biological treatment with minimal toxicities, they said. The study, published in the journal Nature Communications on Thursday, is the first to show evACE2 are capable of fighting the new SARS-CoV-2 … [Read more...] about Nano Bubbles In Blood Of Covid Patients Could Treat, Prevent Infection With Coronavirus Variants
Home Health Wellness Wellness on August 10, 2017 A compound in human saliva may promote wound healing by increasing the formation of blood vessels, an advance that could help design better approaches for treating injuries, scientists say. Researchers examined the effects of salivary peptide histatin-1 on angiogenesis or blood vessel formation, which is critical to the efficiency of wound healing. They found that histatin-1 promotes angiogenesis, as well as cell adhesion and migration. "These findings open new alternatives to better understand the biology underlying the differences between oral and skin wound healing," said Vincent Torres, associate professor at the University of Chile. "We believe that the study could help design better approaches to improve wound healing in tissues other than the mouth," Torres said. Researchers conducted experiments at three levels: endothelial, or blood vessel-forming, cells in … [Read more...] about Saliva May Help Promote Wound Healing: Study
Home Health Health on January 25, 2022 A team of researchers, including an Indian-origin scientist at the prestigious University of British Columbia, has become the first in the world to conduct a molecular-level structural analysis of the Omicron spike protein, which could help accelerate the development of more effective treatments against the variant. Spike protein helps the virus enter and infect cells. Dr Sriram Subramaniam, professor in the UBC faculty of medicine's department of biochemistry and molecular biology, said that Omicron has greater binding affinity than the original SARS-CoV-2 virus, with levels more comparable to what seen with the Delta variant. The findings, published in the Science journal, sheds new light on why Omicron is highly transmissible and will help accelerate the development of more effective treatments, according to a statement issued by the Vancouver-based university. The analysis, done … [Read more...] about Indian-Origin Scientist Among UBC Researchers Unveil World’s 1st Molecular-Level Analysis Of Omicron
