Following the traces of evolution: researches find a key to the reproduction of brain stem cells
Highlighting a potential target in the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS) and Alzheimer’s disease, new research suggests that triggering a protein found on the surface of brain cells may help slow the progression of these and other neurological diseases.
Genetically engineered T memory stem cells (Tscm) can last more than 12 years in patients’ bodies, and can continually generate appropriate T cell armies for them, says an innovative study looking at two historic clinical trials.
Reminders of God can make people more likely to seek out and take risks, according to research published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science.
Inflammation - the body's response to damaging stimuli - may have a protective effect against cardiovascular disease, according to a study published in the journal Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology.
A study by Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) investigators has discovered two groups of neurons that play key roles in social interactions between primates – one that is activated when deciding whether to cooperate with another individual and another group involved in predicting what the other will do.
Study participants inhaled nicotine, yet they showed significantly different brain activity.
Researchers have designed a molecule that, if developed into a drug, could slow the progression of Parkinson's Disease.
Optical features embedded in marine shells may help develop responsive, transparent displays.
A technique developed by researchers has implications for understanding how cancer cells evolve as a tumor grows or how a virus spreads and changes during an infection.
Researchers can precisely control the distribution of liquids suspended within each other.
Findings point to role of natural selection in disease.
A doctor who contracted the deadly Ebola virus and rode the subway system and dined out before he developed symptoms said the media and politicians could have done a better job by educating people on the science of it instead of focusing on their fears.
Scientists have used graphene to target and neutralize cancer stem cells while not harming other cells.
The bill granting the controversial techniques was passed Tuesday by the House of Lords, after being approved earlier this month by the House of Commons.
Researchers have identified a previously unknown process that many bacteria, including those that cause disease in humans, use to survive. Their discovery could lead to new therapies for bacterial infections like MRSA and tuberculosis that are resistant to current antibiotic treatments.
Unexpected findings have implications for anti-obesity therapies.
Neurons hum at different frequencies to tell the brain which memories it should store.
The study showed that skin biopsies can be used to detect elevated levels of abnormal proteins found in the two diseases.
Three Austrians have replaced injured hands with bionic ones that they can control using nerves and muscles transplanted into their arms from their legs.
New technologies will help the field of telemedicine drastically grow this year.
Transcription, the process in which genetic information from DNA is copied into RNA to produce proteins, requires many pieces coming together.
For years, parents of babies who seem likely to develop a peanut allergy have gone to extremes to keep them away from peanut-based foods.
Investigators administered a customized genetic construct consisting of tiny rings of DNA, called DNA minicircles, to mice.
A massive worldwide analysis of genetic data from almost 340,000 people around the world has brought understanding of the genetic basis of obesity a step closer.
