The scientists studied two lung cancer patients where they found immune cells in the tumors that corresponded with the aforementioned antigens.

Researchers have shown a new effect on aging via a small drug-like molecule that alters the perception of food in the nematode C. elegans. Researchers "tricked" the worm's metabolism into a state of caloric restriction, extending the animal's lifespan by 50 percent.
When it comes to measuring brain activity, scientists have tools that can take a precise look at a small slice of the brain (less than one cubic millimeter), or a blurred look at a larger area. Now, researchers have described a new technique that combines the best of both worlds--it captures a detailed snapshot of global activity in the mouse brain.
Researchers can build complex, nanometer-scale structures of almost any shape and form, using strands of DNA. But these particles must be designed by hand, in a complex and laborious process. Now a team of researchers has developed an algorithm that can build these DNA nanoparticles automatically.
The U.S. must act more quickly to protect pregnant women from birth defect-causing Zika, a top health official said Thursday even as the House left town for its Memorial Day recess with no visible progress toward a congressional compromise on emergency funding to battle the virus.
For the first time, a U.S. patient has been infected with bacteria resistant to an antibiotic used as a last resort treatment, scientists said Thursday.
A standard brain scanning technique is showing promise for helping doctors distinguish between patients in a vegetative state and those with hidden signs of consciousness.
Studying twins from birth through age 2, scientists have shown that the gut’s immune system develops in sync with the gut’s tens of trillions of microbes.
The French Health Ministry found the companies at fault for a drug trial earlier this year that killed one and hospitalized five others.
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.
