Findings from animal study have implications for disorders such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
Researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine have transformed skin cells from patients with Lou Gehrig’s disease, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), into brain cells affected by the progressive, fatal disease and deposited those human-made cells into the first public ALS cell library, enabling scientists to better study the disease.
A wearable device that emits low-level electrical fields can slow the progression of glioblastoma, the deadliest form of brain cancer, and extend patients’ lifespans.
Research has shown that drinking two or fewer alcoholic beverages a day may be beneficial for men’s hearts. A new study suggests that danger could be a heartbeat away: more than two drinks a day in middle age may raise men’s stroke risk more than hypertension (high blood pressure, HBP) or diabetes does.
Apple, Johnson & Johnson, and Medtronic will be partners on this program.
As personalized medicine is integrated into mainstream medical treatment, sequencing clinically relevant genes using the latest next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies will prove instrumental in guiding clinicians towards informed treatment decisions.
CORTECS Columns from Waters Corporation are new 1.6 micron solid-core UltraPerformance LC Columns that set a new standard in LC column performance. The higher efficiency brought with the columns allows laboratories to produce greater amounts of information faster with every chromatographic separation.
Stimulating both major branches of the immune system halts tumor growth more effectively.
Researchers at Brown and URI have demonstrated what could be a more precise method for targeting cancer cells for radiation. Cancer-seeking peptides ferry nanoparticles of gold to the site. The gold then helps focus radiation on the cancer cells.
An international research project to sequence whole genomes from mountain gorillas has given scientists and conservationists new insight into the impact of population decline on these critically endangered apes. While mountain gorillas are extensively inbred and at risk of extinction, research published today in Science finds more to be optimistic about in their genomes than expected.
Study reveals mode of action of highly effective, but poorly understood therapy.
One of the brain’s main jobs is information processing – what is critical, however, is that information in the brain gets transferred to the right places at the right times.
The brain gets bigger with physical exercise, according to two recent studies.
An international research team has developed a compound that successfully targets and destroys aggregated proteins, leading to hopes for a new class of drugs effective against a multitude of diseases including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
AMSBIO announces the launch of mRNA-In and mRNA-In Neuro – a new range of high efficiency, targeted transfection reagents. Offering high transfection efficiency and expression levels across a broad range of cell types, including stem cells and primary cells, mRNA-In is a robust and easy-to-use mRNA delivery solution proven in applications including protein expression and iPSC-reprogrammin...
