Researchers doubt that the furless, ugly and naked mole rats hold life-saving clues and following their doubts, they have started their studies of finding some new treatments that can help in protecting brain cells from any such damage that is commonly found to occur due to a heart attack or a stroke.
Yes, the statements have recently come from the researchers of the University of Illinois at Chicago, who in their newer study have started assessing hairless subterranean creatures and are trying to find out if they hold any life saving features to serve the human beings.
Researchers' main focus is to uncover the fact or the ability of the creatures to keep their brains alive even while living beneath ground in oxygen-deprived environments.
Possibilities are higher that the facts detail the functioning of the brain cells and how they regulate the intake of calcium in the body to serve the purpose. Studies of the researchers have shown that the naked mole-rats have high tolerance power to oxygen deprivation. Thus researchers have started studying the naked mole rats to find the answers to some still unclear facts.
Regarding the new start of studies, Head researcher Mr. Thomas Park, while speaking to CBS Chicago said, "What we found is that the mole rates retain those baby characteristics throughout their very long life, and so now we think we have a new target to try to help people that find themselves in an oxygen-deprived situation".
With the new series of studies, researchers are also practicing to get some newer ways to understand about the infant-type of calcium channels, which are comparatively higher in number than the adult humans actually have.
