Less Sleep, Better Sleep | Genomeweb

Based on their genetics, some people don’t need as much sleep as others, which could also influence their risk for disease, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution writes. Researchers from the University of California, San Francisco, have been studying people who only need four to six hours of sleep, less than the commonly…

Elite sleepers: are you one of the people genetically programmed to need less sleep? | Sleep

Name: Elite sleepers. Age: As old as humanity. Appearance: Currently even smugger than usual. Oh God, what now? This is a time for wild celebration! Science has just proved that so-called “elite sleepers” are less likely to develop dementia. I’m an elite sleeper, in that I never get out of…

NPSR1 gene link to endometriosis reveals a potential drug target

Endometriosis is a painful, chronic condition in which tissue from the uterus inappropriately grows outside the uterus. Current treatments are limited and include surgery and hormone therapy, which can involve unwanted side effects. New research conducted by Baylor College of Medicine, the University of Oxford, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and…

Researchers Uncover Genetic Cause Behind Endometriosis

The causes behind endometriosis are still not understood. But new research appears to have uncovered a genetic reason for the debilitating illness as well as identified a promising new drug target. The study’s team consisted of researchers from Baylor College of Medicine, the University of Oxford, and the University of…

Scientists identify the genes that cause endometriosis, giving hope for a new treatment

Up to 10% of women experience endometriosis worldwide. The condition is chronic, extremely painful and can result in infertility. Endometriosis happens when tissue similar to the lining of the womb (the endometrium) grows outside of the womb, in the abdominal cavity and sometimes on the ovaries and the fallopian tubes….

Scientists Are Closer to Curing a Painful Disease Afflicting Millions of Women

Endometriosis is a painful condition in which tissue inside the uterus, known as the endometrium, develops outside the uterus. Up to 10 percent of women experience it worldwide. The condition is chronic, exceedingly painful, and can lead to infertility, and it, like many other conditions solely affecting women, remains enigmatic…

Knowing This Specific Gene Can Cause Endometriosis Could Lead Us to Better Treatments

A rigorous international inquiry into the genetics of endometriosis has revealed a potential new drug target for what remains a very common and incurable disease. Endometriosis occurs when tissue similar to the uterus grows outside of the womb, oftentimes leading to chronic pain, although not in every case.   After…
