A 'cure' for cancer is elusive, but scientists are working on ways to detect -- and even prevent -- cancer cells from spreading through the body.
A new study identified a "sunscreen" gene that may help stave off skin cancer. The researchers...
Bring the drugs, hold the suds. That summarizes a promising new drug-making technique designed...
France's health minister presented a plan on Monday to tighten the rules regarding human drug...
What used to be dismissed by many as "junk DNA" is back with a vengeance as growing data points to the importance of non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) -- genome's messages that do not code for proteins -- in development and disease. But our progress in understanding these molecules has been slow because of the lack of technologies that allow the systematic mapping of their functions.
The saltmarsh sparrow is disappearing from its home on the East Coast and could be headed for extinction in as little as 50 years, say scientists whose work could help protect the little birds.
AMSBIO has introduced two new products to assist scientists adopting organoid culture as a physiologically relevant model for organ development.
The CF2000 Centrifugal Field Flow Fractionation (CF3) system from Postnova Analytics enhances high resolution separation and fractionation of nanoparticles.
In a new study in mice, researchers overcame a process by which cancer co-opts a fundamental protein into protecting it against the body’s defenses.
New research on zebra finches has identified for the first time the genes that allow some bird species to produce the red pigment that plays such a critical role in attraction and mating.
A biosensor has been proven capable of detecting molecules associated with neurodegenerative diseases and some types of cancer.
The complexity of the human brain depends upon the many thousands of individual types of nerve cells it contains. Even the much simpler mouse brain probably contains 10,000 or more different neuronal cell types. Scientists report on a new approach for genetically identifying and manipulating these cell types.
A method to produce significant amounts of semiconducting nanoparticles for light-emitting displays, sensors, solar panels and biomedical applications has gained momentum with a demonstration by researchers
Electricity plays a key role in cell studies, but practical issues linked with the shape of the laboratory cultureware have troubled this research. A Ph.D. student's project, which has led to a patent application and a published article, is radically changing this situation.
A type of brain cell known as microglia plays a key role in reducing the effects of cocaine in the brain, according to a major study.
The drug pregabalin, which is FDA approved to treat epilepsy and neuropathic pain, may be linked to an increased risk of birth defects.
Two researchers have developed an innovative computing technique that, on very large amounts of data, is both faster and more accurate than current methods. To spur research, a program using this technique is being offered for free to the biomedical research community.
A new study has demonstrated a way to deliver a nanoparticle-based gene therapy, in order to repair lungs damaged by chronic allergic asthma and to reduce inflammation that causes asthma attacks.
Researchers have studied possible causes behind the development of brain tumors. The results show differences in expression of certain molecules known as metabolites when comparing healthy individuals with people who would eventually develop brain tumors. The greatest difference were found when looking at vitamin E.
