New Drug Reduces Fibrosis and Prevents DMD  Voir?

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a fatal form of a muscle wasting disorder that is caused by mutations in a gene on the X chromosome. Researchers have found a new drug that reduces fibrosis (scarring) and prevents loss of muscle function in an animal model of DMD. The researchers from Saint Louis University (SLU) in the US, in a paper published in the Nature journal Scientific Reports, said this could provide a promising approach in designing new medications for those suffering from DMD....

Opioid Drugs Without Side Effects  Voir?

Opioid drugs which are effective in pain relief can lead to addiction and also have some unpleasant, potentially deadly side effects. Now a group of researchers, led by Dr. Laura Bohn at The Scripps Research Institute, may have found a way to make opioids safer by separating the drugs' pain relieving effects from their most dangerous side effect, respiratory suppression, which, in very severe cases, causes patients to stop breathing and to die. All opioid drugs elicit their effects via a small ...
