The scientists studied two lung cancer patients where they found immune cells in the tumors that corresponded with the aforementioned antigens.
While SeaWorld's decision last month to end its orca breeding program delighted animal rights...
Millions of years ago, the Earth’s marine and terrestrial environments played host to all sorts...
Investigators report that, during sensory stimulation, increases in blood flow are not precisely "tuned" to local neural activity, challenging the long-held view that vascular and local neural responses are tightly coupled.
A new study found that mothers who consumed more fruit during pregnancy gave birth to children who performed better on developmental testing at one year of age.
A new study provides additional evidence that amyloid-beta protein - which is deposited in the form of beta-amyloid plaques in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease - is a normal part of the innate immune system, the body's first-line defense against infection.
People who suffer itching with no clear cause may have previously unrecognized immune system defects. In a small study of such patients, researchers identified immune system irregularities that may prompt the urge to scratch.
New super-resolution technique visualizes important role of short-lived enzyme clusters.
Researchers are studying the regenerative capacity of sea urchins in hopes that a deeper understanding of the process of regeneration, which governs the regeneration of aging tissues as well as lost or damaged body parts, will lead to a deeper understanding of the aging process in humans, with whom sea urchins share a close genetic relationship.
For a long time, the debate has gone on: Does size matter to females? Biologists now say, definitively, that it does. Among fruit flies.
A new Neurology study investigated genes in the immune system and identified eight immune genes that may be linked to patients’ length of survival after developing a common and deadly brain cancer.
In addition the technique to grow the blood vessels in a 3D scaffold cuts down on the risk of transplant rejection because it uses cells from the patient.
Vice President Joe Biden will bring together scientists, oncologists, donors and patients for a national conference on cancer research in Washington, the White House said Tuesday.
There are lessons to be learned from venoms.
An international team of scientists has conducted the world's most comprehensive analysis of coral genes, focusing on how their evolution has allowed corals to interact with and adapt to the environment. A second study shows, for the first time, how stony corals create their hard skeletons, using proteins as key ingredients.
Deep in vents on the ocean floor, methane-producing microbes feed off chemical reactions between water and rock. Now evidence of this process has been found on land in a freshwater spring in California.
At age 70, Alfred Roberts plays hockey twice a week. Nothing special, right? Except that for three years he has had advanced prostate cancer, which has spread to his bones.
A new study reveals that a gene mutation associated with autism plays a critical role in the formation and maturation of synapses — the connections that allow neurons to communicate with each other.
