Using your loaf to fight brain disease: Baker's yeast to combat neurological conditions like Parkinson's and even cancer?

Using your loaf to fight brain disease: Baker's yeast to combat neurological conditions like Parkinson's and even cancer? | #ALS AWARENESS #LouGehrigsDisease #PARKINSONS | Scoop.it
Experts analyze baker's yeast to discover potential for combating neurological conditions like Parkinson's and even cancer. The current research takes advantage of the simplicity and genetic power of the baker's yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae to understand basic cellular processes underlying Parkinson's disease. The team studied a family of proteins in yeast which are related to a human protein known as DJ-1. Mutations in the human DJ-1 protein cause early-onset inherited forms of Parkinson's disease, and alterations in the human protein have been associated with more common forms of Parkinson's disease as well.

Kilimanjaro. The two-week trip took place March 18 – April 4 to help boost awareness and funding for The Kevin Turner Foundation, a non-profit organization created to advance ongoing research efforts regarding the connection between ALS and repetitive brain injury. Seven members representing the Climb For Kevin team traveled to Tanzania to summit the 19,341-foot mountain, including Atlanta-based SiriusXM radio host and ACC Network television broadcaster Rachel Baribeau.

New drugs are usually tested in animals before they're tested in humans. But many of those studies aren't done carefully enough, analysts say. So time and money is wasted, and treatments are delayed.

ALS Assoc.- Gehrig PSA Campaign| TIME Magazine Issued Release: 4.21.2014 | #ALS AWARENESS #LouGehrigsDisease #PARKINSONS | Scoop.it

A PSA campaign developed by Red Deluxe Brand Development for the national ALS Association has its first pickup: the April 21 issue of TIME magazine. The new campaign recognizes 2014 as the 75-year anniversary of Lou Gehrig’s retirement from baseball due to ALS, and it calls attention to the ongoing fight against the disease that is often called simply “Lou Gehrig’s Disease.”

The national campaign remembers Gehrig’s emotional farewell speech in 1939 when he declared himself the “luckiest man on the face of the earth.”

University High coach Jim Tracy succumbs to ALS

University High coach Jim Tracy succumbs to ALS | #ALS AWARENESS #LouGehrigsDisease #PARKINSONS | Scoop.it
Sure enough, the state's winningest cross-country coach delivered a rousing speech to inspire the boys' basketball team to victory against rival Lick-Wilmerding in their annual game at Oracle Arena. According to Ketcham, he died peacefully in his sleep. Tracy's fight and dedication to a sport and his runners gained national and worldwide attention after his top runner in the 2010 state finals, Holland Reynolds, fell 10 yards from the finish line, stricken with dehydration and hypothermia. The story reached the New York Times and ESPN, head coach Tom Coughlin used it to inspire the New York Giants to a 2012 Super Bowl win and Reynolds' mother, Robin Hauser Reynolds, a filmmaker, co-directed an award-winning documentary entitled "Running for Jim." Midvale arrived for its consolation Bishop Gorman Desert Classic Tournament game in Las Vegas 10 minutes before the opening pitch; otherwise Lowell coach John Donohue would have recorded his 700th win with an unceremonious forfeit. Heritage-Brentwood senior Frank Kurtz recorded the state's top 400 meters this season, winning in 47.58, Dublin sophomore Mecca McGlaston won the 100-meter hurdles in 14.03, third best in the state, and Tamalpais-Mill Valley pole-vaulter August Kiles (15-11 3/4) and Menlo 400 runner Madeline Price (55.22) recorded the state's fourth-best marks. Cal-bound Mitty shortstop Jazmyn Jackson was named the most valuable player of the 20th Livermore Stampede softball tournament Saturday after the Monarchs (13-0) defeated Elk Grove-Pleasant Grove 6-0 in the title game. Pleasant Grove defeated Livermore 1-0 in the other semifinal on an RBI single from Marissa Maligad. Johanna Grauer earned MVP honors and extended her streak to 86 1/3 innings without giving up an earned run as Amador Valley, ranked third nationally, defeated Los Alamitos 2-1 in the title game of the Michelle Carew Classic in Anaheim.
