Apple's ResearchKit needs to make an impact beyond the initial launch period.
After a chance observation in the lab, researchers found a method that can force dangerous leukemia cells in the lab to mature into harmless immune cells called macrophages.
Many recent meta-studies find hormone replacement therapy lengthens life after all. This may be leading to a comeback for the once hugely popular menopause treatment.
EMD Millipore, the Life Science division of Merck KGaA of Darmstadt, Germany, launched the EZ-Fit Filtration Unit, a ready-to-use, disposable filtration device for bioburden testing. The system is more efficient than traditional methods, resulting in increased reliability and streamlined workflows.
First steps toward precision medicine for a deadly disease.
New York University researchers have devised a computer model to explain how a neural circuit learns to classify sensory stimuli into discrete categories, such as “car vs. motorcycle.” Their findings, which appear in the journal Nature Communication, shed new light on the brain processes underpinning judgments we make on a daily basis.
Scientists are eager to make use of stem cells’ extraordinary power to transform into nearly any kind of cell, but that ability also is cause for concern in cancer treatment. Malignant tumors contain stem cells, prompting worries among medical experts that the cells’ transformative powers help cancers escape treatment.
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.
