Research showed that bleeding events were drastically decreased in animals with hemophilia B. Using a viral vector to swap out faulty genes proved safe and could be used for the more common hemophilia A.
The Botswana-UPenn Partnership (BUP) is collaborating with Microsoft, the Botswana Innovation Hub, and other global partners to launch the first telemedicine service in Africa using TV white spaces to bring internet connectivity to hospitals and clinics across rural areas of Botswana.
Researchers identify a vital protein that can determine head and brain development.
A multidisciplinary research team discovers how cells know to rush to a wound and heal it – opening the door to new treatments for diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Researchers at the University of Arizona have discovered what causes and regulates collective cell migration, one of the most universal but least understood biological processes in all living organisms.
Dr. Nancy Snyderman said Thursday that she's leaving her job as chief medical editor for NBC News, six months after unleashing public anger for failing to observe a quarantine after covering the Ebola epidemic last fall.
For the first time in the world, researchers at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) were able to enroll patients at other hospitals into an acute stroke clinical trial.
Genevac reports that its HT Series II Evaporator using the Fast Lyophilisation, or LyoSpeed process is enabling a growing number of pharmaceutical labs to routinely dry HPLC fraction samples to a powder form, such that the samples can then be accurately weighed, sub-sampled, and redissolved.
Two groups have recently made strides with amyloid beta (aβ), the supposed main villain in Alzheimer’s disease. But while one group is tackling Alzheimer’s by reducing aβ, the other is tackling multiple sclerosis (MS) by using aβ.
Many animals, including humans, acquired essential ‘foreign’ genes from microorganisms cohabiting their environment in ancient times, according to research published in the open access journal Genome Biology.
Finding: Protein complex isn't always "on."
An American healthcare worker who contracted Ebola while volunteering in a Sierra Leone treatment unit arrived safely at the National Institutes of Health's hospital in Maryland, officials announced early Friday.
Researchers at MIT have developed a method to stimulate brain tissue using external magnetic fields and injected magnetic nanoparticles — a technique allowing direct stimulation of neurons, which could be an effective treatment for a variety of neurological diseases, without the need for implants or external connections.
UCLA researchers have provided the first evidence that a simple blood test could be developed to confirm the presence of beta amyloid proteins in the brain, which is a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease.
MIT study finds evidence that a new strain of H1N1 may carry dangerous mutations.
