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.

Air contamination near fracking sites result of operational inefficiencies
Chemists have published a new study that indicates that highly variable contamination events registered in and around unconventional oil and gas developments are the result of operational inefficiencies and not inherent to the extraction process itself.

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.

Researchers Target Gut Bacteria to Reduce Weight Gain
Adding engineered bacteria into the guts of mice both kept them from gaining weight and protected them against some of the negative health effects of obesity. Researchers will present their findings today at the American Physiological Society's Inflammation, Immunity and Cardiovascular Disease conference.

Impulsivity Levels Help Identify At-Risk Offspring of Alcoholics
Researchers know that youth with a family history of alcoholism have a greater risk of developing an alcohol use disorder; this heightened vulnerability may be due to impulsive behavior. For this study, researchers examined "waiting" impulsivity - a tendency toward prematurely responding to a reward, and previously associated with a predisposition to drinking. The study sample comprised young, moderate-to-heavy social drinkers who were either positive (FHP) or negative (FHN) for a family history of alcoholism. Impulsivity was assessed after an alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink.
