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

Millions of years ago, the Earth’s marine and terrestrial environments played host to all sorts...
A wide array of resins with diverse properties is currently available to help with complex purification requirements and challenges. However, no single resin currently on the market can encapsulate all the properties needed for complete one-step purification. Hence, typically a series of purification steps are performed with different resins contributing to the workflow, to achieve the final purification goal.
Early exposure to nicotine can trigger widespread genetic changes that affect formation of connections between brain cells long after birth, a new study has found. The finding helps explains why maternal smoking has been linked to behavioral changes such as attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder, addiction and conduct disorder.
The U.N. health agency says sexual transmission of Zika is more common than first thought. It is updating its advice to women who have been in areas hit by the virus, telling them to wait even longer to conceive.
The use of next-generation gene sequencing in newborns in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) may improve the diagnosis of rare diseases and deliver results more quickly to anxious families, according to new research.
In the hippocampus--the brain's memory center--temporal ordering of the neural code is important for building a mental map of where you've been, where you are, and where you are going. New research has pinpointed how the neurons that represent space in mice stay in time.
An outbreak of measles that began with an inmate at a federal detention center for immigrants in central Arizona has now grown to 11 confirmed cases, officials said Monday.
Boston-based biotech start-up Orig3n is looking to build the largest and most diverse biobank, harnessing the power of induced pluripotent stem cell technology to accelerate regenerative medicine.

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.
