Serotonin Blocker May Build New Bone in Osteoporotic Mice by Decreasing GI Serotonin Levels

Posted: April 5, 2010 at 8:17 am

From WebMD:

When investigators treated mice with an experimental drug that stopped the gut from synthesizing serotonin, they were able to reverse severe bone loss and essentially cure osteoporosis in the animals.

Serotonin May Hold Key to Halting Osteoporosis. NatureVideoChannel — February 05, 2010 — A drug that reverses osteoporosis in mice looks like a promising candidate for treating the human version of the disease. Gerard Karsenty and his colleagues at Columbia University Medical Center have shown that blocking the neurotransmitter serotonin--secreted from the gut--promotes bone growth. The research appears on-line at http://www.nature.com/naturemedicine - Yadav et al. Nature Medicine, 7 February 2010. DOI: 10.1038/nm.2098.

Most bone treatments work to block bone loss and make existing bone stronger. One drug, Forteo (teriparatide), does build new bone, but it requires daily injections and is limited to two years of use.

Be Your Own Doctor

There various vegetables , fruits and nuts readily available in our kitchens and our local markets. But we often forget the medicinal value and no soon we have a ailment we run to the doctors for help. It is very important to consult a doctor and take the medication, but the herbal medicenes that are available readily at our kitchen could help us if the ailment is very nominal. For eg. if someone has a gastric problem, or an acidity problem , then there are so many condiments, and other herbal cures which are at our reach, but that goes unnoticed or being ignored. I give you a few remedies on very normal and common ailments from the vegetables, condiments, fruits etc available at home.

Water Test Finds Toxic Substance

A more refined test of the water in the Washington Aqueduct has revealed the presence of perchlorate, a toxic chemical typically found in weapons and explosives, federal officials said yesterday.

The discovery of the chemical in the water supply challenges the prevailing theory of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which has argued that contamination from buried World War I munitions in the Spring Valley neighborhood to the north poses no threat to Dalecarlia Reservoir along MacArthur Avenue NW.

Thomas P. Jacobus, chief of the Washington Aqueduct, said perchlorate in the reservoir measured between 1.2 and 1.8 parts per billion (ppb) and did not pose a health risk. He said he has ordered weekly tests of the water and is recommending that the corps accelerate its search for the source of perchlorate contamination.

"I'm obviously concerned about anything that has to do with drinking water. . . . But there is no cause for alarm," Jacobus said. Read more...
