Research suggests strategy to prevent relapse after therapies targeting tumor blood vessels.
Researchers find key to a critical enzyme’s many roles. The enzyme AMPK initiates many different cellular activities, even though its own activity is controlled by a single switch.
A single cell type in the skin of mice is a major contributor to scarring after wound healing or radiation damage, and facilitates the growth of melanoma. Blocking the cell’s activity in humans may be possible with currently approved drugs.
Study Describes First Steps in Basic Biological Process that Could Be Used to Harness Therapeutic CellsApril 17, 2015 2:23 pm | by University of Penn Medicine | Comments
Understanding the molecular signals that guide early cells in the embryo to develop into different types of organs provides insight into how tissues regenerate and repair themselves.
Researchers have found more evidence that the brain’s grid cells help a mouse mentally map its location in the dark.
Columbia University has not removed TV celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz from his faculty position as a group of top doctors has demanded, citing his "egregious lack of integrity" for promoting what they call "quack treatments."
Dartmouth researchers identify precise heat to boost immune system against cancer tumors.
She was born to a young Chicago couple, named Jennifer, and grew into a beautiful long-lashed child with wavy dark hair, big brown eyes and a yearning, youthful desire to be just like all the other girls.
A genome-wide association study conducted by an international team led by the University of Southern California identified Nox3 as a critical gene for susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss in mice. The gene, which is almost exclusively expressed in the inner ear, was identified in a study published in the April 16 edition of PLOS Genetics.
Findings identify a cause of the disease and highlight potential therapeutic approach.
A measles outbreak that began at Disneyland and reignited debate about vaccinations is nearing an end.
Staining method brings the reconstruction of all nerve cells and their connections within reach.
Using a weak electric current to alter a specific brain activity pattern, UNC School of Medicine researchers increased creativity in healthy adults. Now they’re testing the same experimental protocol to alleviate symptoms in people with depression.
Gov. Jerry Brown is launching a statewide initiative with the University of California, to advance the field of precision medicine. The effort will involve collaborating with other academic and industry partners and starting to build the infrastructure and assemble the resources necessary to further develop the field.
More cancer patients are getting the genes in their tumors mapped to help guide their treatment. New research suggests that isn't always accurate enough, and a second test could help ferret out the culprit genes.
Researchers at Oregon State University have discovered how vitamin E deficiency may cause neurological damage by interrupting a supply line of specific nutrients and robbing the brain of the “building blocks” it needs to maintain neuronal health.
