22-Year-Old Gymnast Deathly Allergic To Everything, Including Her Hair And Tears, Because Of Rare Condition

Added: 13.01.2018 18:37 | 3 views | 0 comments


Imagine not being able to eat or drink anything without the fear that it could kill you. That's the reality that 22-year-old gymnast Natasha Coates, of Nottingham, England, has to live with every day. Coates has a condition called Mast Cell Activation Syndrome which means that she's allergic to everything including her hair and tears.
According to The Mastocytosis Society, mast cells are immune system cells that have a lot of functions but they are primarily responsible for protecting the body from infection. When you have Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, these cells don't work properly. So they can release too many histamines when trying to safeguard the body from a potential infection or they can release these chemicals when there's no need to. This triggers spontaneous reactions that can be devastating.

Researchers have, for the first time, coaxed human stem cells to become sensory interneurons -- the cells that give us our sense of touch. The new protocol could be a step toward stem cell-based therapies to restore sensation in paralyzed people who have lost feeling in parts of their body.

Genetic 'switches' behind human brain evolution

Added: 11.01.2018 23:02 | 1 views | 0 comments

Researchers have developed the first map of gene regulation in human neurogenesis, the process by which neural stem cells turn into brain cells and the cerebral cortex expands in size. The scientists identified factors that govern the growth of our brains and, in some cases, set the stage for several brain disorders that appear later in life.
