February 19, 2018 Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease driven by the interplay of genetics, environmental factors and a diverse cast of immune cells. In their latest study, researchers at La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology (LJI) identified a subset of T cells, whose frequency serves as early childhood immune signature that predicts the […]Continue Reading ...
February 20, 2018 Researchers at Stanford University are studying how bacteria living in the gut respond to common changes within their habitat, working with mice. They change the gut environment within the mice, and then measure which bacterial species survive the change and how the gut environment itself has changed. They also study the physiological […]Continue Reading ...
February 19, 2018 A new study published today found that a newly discovered gene helps grow blood vessels when it senses inadequate blood flow to tissues. The research, published online in the prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, was led by Dr. Philip Marsden, a clinician scientist in the Keenan Research Centre for […]Continue Reading ...
February 20, 2018 People with Multiple Sclerosis — MS — who feel stigmatized are more likely to suffer from depression, according to researchers, who add that having a support system of friends and family and a sense of autonomy may help reduce the harmful effects of stigma. As part of an ongoing research project, people […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain A team of researchers from Denmark and France has found that taking regular doses of the pain reliever ibuprofen over a long period of time can lead to a disorder in men called compensated hypogonadism. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the group describes their […]Continue Reading ...
February 20, 2018 Allogeneic blood or marrow transplantation recipients are at a significantly higher risk of cognitive impairment in the years post-transplantation, according to a study published in Journal of Clinical Oncology. Published by Noha Sharafeldin, M.D., M.Sc., Ph.D., instructor in UAB’s Institute for Cancer Outcomes and Survivorship and Division of Hematology and Oncology, this […]Continue Reading ...
February 20, 2018 An innovative e-Health solution, based on an interactive Internet platform, has been developed to support senior citizens in improving their lifestyle to prevent cardiovascular disease, cognitive decline and dementia. Researchers from the HATICE trial presented the solution in a pre-press article published in Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease 62(2). The HATICE trial is […]Continue Reading ...
February 19, 2018 Researchers from Osaka University develop sensing method with the potential to significantly contribute to early detection of cancer and diabetes The use of terahertz (THz) waves for biosensing is currently receiving considerable attention. THz waves are able to detect molecular vibrations and rotations, without using labels that can affect the properties of […]Continue Reading ...
THURSDAY, Feb. 15, 2018 — Everyday products such as perfume, skin lotion, hair spray, deodorant, household cleaners and lawn pesticides are a top source of air pollution, as damaging to air quality as the exhaust from cars and trucks, a new report shows. Consumer products containing compounds refined from petroleum all release small amounts of […]Continue Reading ...
February 20, 2018 Deep in the middle of our heads lies a tiny nub of nerve cells that play a key role in how hungry we feel, how much we eat, and how much weight we gain. Around the clock, they produce a “grandfather” form of several hormones that help us regulate these crucial functions. […]Continue Reading ...
February 19, 2018 New research in mice has found that a father’s stress affects the brain development of his offspring. This stress changes the father’s sperm, which can then alter the brain development of the child. This new research provides a much better understanding of the key role that fathers play in the brain development […]Continue Reading ...
February 19, 2018 To stop the spread of cancer, cancer cells must die. Unfortunately, many types of cancer cells seem to use innate mechanisms that block cancer cell death, therefore allowing the cancer to metastasize. While seeking to further understand cancer cell death, researchers at the University of Notre Dame discovered that the activation of […]Continue Reading ...
February 19, 2018 Every cell in your body responds to the hormone insulin, and if that process starts to fail, you get diabetes. In an unexpected finding, scientists at Joslin Diabetes Center have identified four viruses that can produce insulin-like hormones that are active on human cells. The discovery brings new possibilities for revealing biological […]Continue Reading ...
February 20, 2018 Exercising more reduces the risk of diabetes and could see seven million fewer diabetic patients across mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan, according to new research. Researchers have found that higher levels of Leisure-time Physical Activity (LTPA), such as walking, jogging or running, are linked to a lower risk of diabetes in […]Continue Reading ...
February 19, 2018 A groundbreaking new wearable designed to be worn on the throat could be a game-changer in the field of stroke rehabilitation. Developed in the lab of Northwestern University engineering professor John A. Rogers, in partnership with Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, the sensor is the latest in Rogers’ growing portfolio of stretchable electronics that […]Continue Reading ...
