Conquering the lysosomal storage disorders with genetic engineering
(Medical Xpress)—The motivation by fear, anger, and love to preserve self, kin, and others perches near the pinnacle of our existence. Triumph in the face of a seemingly insurmountable medical adversity by the creation of some tangibly successful treatment, virtually out of thin air, invariably strings together countless moments of courage and heroism to cut a continuous path of sheer human elegance through time that is a privilege to behold. The movie 'Lorenzo's Oil', and the book 'My Brother's Keeper', are two such popular accounts of families who brought the fight and won the fight against rare neurodegenerative disorders; a third is the now unfolding story of a family fighting against a debilitating lysosomal storage diseases known as Sanfilippo Syndrome, or MPSIIIa (mucopolysaccharidosis IIIa).

Mechanism identified through which lead may harm neural cells, children's neurodevelopment
Researchers have identified a potential molecular mechanism through which lead, a pervasive environmental toxin, may harm neural stem cells and neurodevelopment in children. The study, from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, suggests that lead exposure can lead to oxidative stress—a process that can change cell behavior and has been linked with health problems—among certain proteins within neural stem cells.

Researchers find a new way to identify, target malignant aging in leukemia
Researchers have identified RNA-based biomarkers that distinguish between normal, aging hematopoietic stem cells and leukemia stem cells associated with secondary acute myeloid leukemia (sAML), a particularly problematic disease that typically afflicts older patients who have often already experienced a bout with cancer.

Sensor systems identify senior citizens at risk of falling within 3 weeks
Each year, millions of people -- especially those 65 and older -- fall. Such falls can be serious, leading to broken bones, head injuries, hospitalizations or even death. Now, researchers have found that sensors that measure in-home gait speed and stride length can predict likely falls. This technology can assist health providers to detect changes and intervene before a fall occurs.
