A new global classification system for periodontal health, diseases and conditions, as well as peri-implant diseases and conditions, has been announced today at the EuroPerio9 congress, the world’s leading congress in periodontology and implant dentistry. The comprehensive classification was based upon the most contemporary evidence and includes astaging and grading system for periodontitis, indicating severity […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: Medical Research Council New drugs that lower levels of triglycerides (a type of fat) in blood could further reduce the risk of heart attack when added to statins. These new drugs, which are in various stages of development, could also reduce blood glucose levels and the risk of diabetes, according to a new genetic […]Continue Reading ...
Oct 12 2018 Over a third of exhibitors to introduce new laboratory innovations, services and solutions Lab Innovations, the UK’s only trade show dedicated to the laboratory industry, will again host a range of laboratory introductions during the event at the NEC, Birmingham, on 31st October to 1st November. With over a third of exhibitors […]Continue Reading ...
Scientists studying how genetics impact brain disease have long sought a better experimental model. Cultures of genetically-modified cell lines can reveal some clues to how certain genes influence the development of psychiatric disorders and brain cancers. But such models cannot offer the true-to-form look at brain function that can be provided by genetically-modified mice. Even […]Continue Reading ...

Commissioned by the Department of Health and Social Care and funded by the National […]Continue Reading ...
Children with an aggressive form of cancer are being given new hope in a world-first trans-Atlantic clinical trial that will test a new three-part treatment. The study, involving doctors and cancer scientists in Southampton, America and Germany, will boost the body’s immune system to kill off neuroblastoma, one of the most common childhood cancers. The […]Continue Reading ...
At their most dangerous, cancerous tumors cause disease in two ways: they grow and spread. New research published today in Nature Communications shows that, in a severe childhood brain cancer called medulloblastoma, a single signaling pathway underlies the tumor’s ability to do both. The pathway may be a good target for new cancer treatments. Medulloblastoma, […]Continue Reading ...
Oct 4 2018 CHOP Scientist Proposes Interactive Info-Sharing Model, to Help Advance Precision Medicine Maybe the genetic test report your doctor ordered says your DNA contains many “variants of unknown significance.” Currently, up to 70 percent of such reports are negative or inconclusive. But suppose at a later date a researcher discovers one of those […]Continue Reading ...
Light-activated switches are too small to be seen by the naked eye, but the molecular systems are hard at work in research related to drug design, adaptive materials and data storage. To unlock the promise of new generations of medical therapies and memory systems, researchers must first overcome the drawbacks of the microscopic devices that […]Continue Reading ...
Acetaminophen is a common pain reliever found in every pharmacy. However, it is also the No. 1 cause of acute liver failure in the United States. In the liver, acetaminophen is converted into a new compound that covalently binds to proteins at an amino acid called cysteine. These covalent binding events are known to contribute […]Continue Reading ...
Chemists at The Ohio State University have developed a new and improved way to generate molecules that can enable the design of new types of synthetic drugs. Researchers say this new method of forming reactive intermediates called ketyl radicals offers scientists a way to use catalysts to convert simple molecules into complex structures in one […]Continue Reading ...
Spurred by the rapidly expanding use of in-home tests for “omic” – genomic and microbiomic – data for humans, pets, and even homes themselves, university researchers have begun tackling the difficult challenge of making the results interactive and understandable to non-experts. While misinterpreting a pet’s lineage or the tracks of a cockroach across a kitchen […]Continue Reading ...
Retroviruses have colonized vertebrate hosts for millions of years by inserting their genes into host genomes, enabling their inheritance through generations as endogenous retroviruses (ERVs). Researchers from Uppsala University now provide new knowledge about the long-term associations of retroviruses and their hosts by studying ERV variation and segregation in wild and domestic rabbit populations. The […]Continue Reading ...
A new study led by an infectious disease epidemiologist at Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine could change the way doctors treat a common sexually transmitted disease. Professor Patricia Kissinger and a team of researchers found the recommended single dose of medication isn’t enough to eliminate trichomoniasis, the most common curable STD, […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers at VIB and KU Leuven have uncovered a new molecular interaction that governs the formation of specific functional connections between two types of neurons. It gives an important clue as to how unique interactions give shape to precisely organized neuronal networks in the brain. Pyramidal neurons are named after their cell body, which is […]Continue Reading ...
