A Miracle Cure For Baldness Might Be On The Way

  A Miracle Cure For Baldness Might Be On The Way A drug designed for osteoperosis could be the keyUntil now all you could do was choose the nature of your follicle decline; brave the big shave, mitigate things by gradually shearing hair off until you were basically bald anyway, or wear a hat every hour of the day and night until you died.

In recent news, scientists are claiming extraordinary success in their first clinical trials among blood cancer patients. This informative video goes over the major challenges researchers face when trying to find a perfect cure for cancer. Say Goodbye to Your Double Chin with These 5 Exercises.

But this could soon change, with excited British researchers announcing the discovery of a potential drug treatment for the common cold.

While most people eventually recover from their sniffing and congestion, a cold can trigger fatal illness in people with respiratory problems such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and cystic fibrosis.

Until now, it has been virtually impossible to vaccinate against the virus because the condition is made of up of more than 100 different strains and remedies have instead focused on treating symptoms.

A drug originally designed to treat a bone disease may offer a new way to cure baldness

  A drug originally designed to treat a bone disease may offer a new way to cure baldness Researchers say they have found a drug that may be able to prevent hair loss. The drug was designed to treat osteoporosis, but it may have potential to cure baldness as well. Researchers still need to test the drug on people before they can say how well it works and whether it's safe.Baldness is complicated - and no, it's not all your mother's fault.There are only a few treatments that experts say actually work for people who are starting to lose their hair, though they aren't effective for everyone.That makes any potential new approach exciting.

Scientists claim they have found a simple CURE for baldness. Avoid Constant heating & drying: Do not open up hair to too much heating and drying techniques since this process is said to lessen hair proteins which will ultimately weaken the hair giving it fragility.

Scientists say the cold becomes more complex the more they find out about it. One of the researchers, Dr. Ann Palmenberg, was quite pessimistic about a cure . “There’s not going to be a vaccine for the common cold ,” she said .

So researchers at Imperial College London ignored the disease itself and instead targeted the human protein that is "hijacked" by all strains of the virus.

That compound, IMP-1088, targets N-myristoyltransferase (NMT), a protein in human cells which cold viruses use to construct a protein "shell", which protects the virus genome.

Researcher Professor Roberto Solari said that laboratory testing showed the compound was effective against the rhinovirus, the most common cause of the common cold.

The exact cause of hiccups is still a mystery, but here's what we know about a cure

  The exact cause of hiccups is still a mystery, but here's what we know about a cure No one knows exactly what causes hiccups, but we do know what they are. Hiccups happen when an involuntary spasm in the diaphragm causes the vocal chords to snap shut, which makes that hiccup sound. The best hiccups cure might simply be distracting a person for a few minutes until they go away.Everyone grows up with their own family hiccups cure. There's trying to scare the hiccup victim, holding one's breath, or drinking a glass of water upside-down from the far side of the glass.

It makes us wonder if scientists can send a man to the moon, why can't they find a cure for the common cold . The answer is easy. There is one interesting thing to note- some scientists say taking medicines when you have a cold is actually bad for you.

A group of researchers think they have a cure for hearing loss that doesn’t involve a cochlear implant. Now, however, some scientists say a new gene therapy treatment could possibly work for We' ve demonstrated that with one gene in particular, and it works quite well for that gene.

"We block the virus being able to create a shell around itself, so the virus doesn't replicate itself,” Professor Solari, a visiting fellow at the National Heart and Lung Institute, told 3AW ratio.

However, any future cure is still in its early days, as the synthetic chemical has yet to be proved safe for human use. The next step is animal trials.

“Before going into people we have to do safety and toxicology studies to show that it’s safe to administer to people,” said Professor Solari.

“But at the moment we’re reasonably optimistic; it doesn’t look like a toxic compound.”

Researchers envisage that, in its first formulation, the molecule would be made into a throat spray which people would use when symptoms are detected, similar to hay fever medication.

Dr Peter Barlow, of the British Society for Immunology, said: "While this study was conducted entirely in vitro, i.e. using cells to model rhinovirus [cold] infection in the laboratory, it shows great promise in terms of eventually developing a drug treatment to combat the effects in patients."

Could this be the cure for chronic insomnia? .
Getting a good night's sleep is just a dream for the one in ten people who have trouble sleeping, but a new device is providing hope to those who are living with chronic insomnia. Developed by researchers at Flinders University, THIM is shaped like a ring and can help re-train users to fall asleep faster.It uses vibration to wake the wearer up at intervals throughout the night, in a process that researcher say could lead to better sleep and less anxiety when it comes to bed time.
