The ageing process is like the married couple next door -- when young, they communicate well, but over many years the communication breaks down.

New targets to help treat Parkinson`s disease identified

Last Updated: Monday, November 25, 2013, 12:29

Researchers have used RNA interference (RNAi) - a natural process occurring in cells that helps regulate genes - to reveal dozens of genes which could represent new therapeutic targets for treating Parkinson`s disease.

Possible culprit behind congenital heart defects discovered

Last Updated: Friday, May 10, 2013, 16:10

Researchers at McGill University have unlocked a new door to developing drugs to slow the progression of Parkinson`s disease.

Missing link in Parkinson`s found

Last Updated: Monday, April 29, 2013, 16:12

Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have discovered a missing link in understanding how damage to the body`s cellular power plants leads to Parkinson`s disease and, perhaps surprisingly, to some forms of heart failure.

Discovery of key molecule in heart cells could help prevent stroke deaths

Last Updated: Saturday, April 13, 2013, 15:41

Researchers are one step closer in preventing death related to heart diseases, thanks to their discovery of a key molecule in an unexpected place in heart cells - mitochondria, tiny energy factories that house the controls capable of setting off cells` self-destruct sequence.
