A new study examined APS at the cellular level and found that two drugs reduced development of blood clots in mice affected with the condition.
By injecting cells that support blood vessel growth into muscles depleted by inactivity, researchers say they are able to help restore muscle mass lost as a result of immobility.
Doctors use novel software to increase quality assurance in radiation therapy. This allows radiation oncologists to assess targeting and dosing of radiation in real time as treatment progresses.
Australian researchers have discovered a new molecular pathway in the brain that triggers more weight gain in times of stress.
A new study identifies insulin as a primary signal that helps communicate the timing of meals to the cellular clocks located across our body, commonly known as the body clock.
Overeating has been found to impair blood sugar (glucose) control and insulin levels. A new study suggests that the duration of a bout of overeating can affect how the body adapts glucose and insulin processing when calorie intake increases.
New findings indicate that oral biomarkers may help health providers identify victims of domestic violence.
Researchers tested to see if arsenic trioxide (ATO) was effective in combination with all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) in in both the mouse model of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and in human AML cells in the lab, and determined that the combination prove…
Experimenting in mice, the researchers tracked a series of events that enable a small reservoir of treatment-resistant cancer cells to awake from dormancy, grow and spread.
Researchers have found that among all hospitalizations that were due to firearm injury, patients who underwent surgical repair of their major blood vessels had the highest injury severity score (predictor of in-hospital death).
Songbirds that pack on as much as 50 percent of their body weight before migrating and that sleep very little, exhibit altered immune system and tissue-repair function during the journey, which may hold implications for human health.
More than technological fixes are needed to stop countries from spreading disinformation on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, according to two experts. Policymakers and diplomats need to focus more on the psychology behind why citizens …
A new immunodeficient zebrafish model investigators promises to be less expensive, easier to use and to improve personalized therapies for cancers and potentially other diseases. The ability of the model to visualize drug responses at single-cell resol…
Scientists have discovered that the collection of proteins in an animal cell — called the proteome — is substantially affected by both the animal’s sex and its diet. Understanding these individual proteomes might provide a basis for personalised trea…
A swarm of micro-robots, directed by magnets, can break apart and remove dental biofilm, or plaque, from a tooth. The innovation arose from a cross-disciplinary partnership among dentists, biologists, and engineers.
Scientists have discovered a neurological origin for absence seizures — a type of seizure characterized by very short periods of lost consciousness in which people appear to stare blankly at nothing. Using a mouse model of childhood epilepsy, a team s…
A simple injection that can help regrow damaged tissue has long been the dream of physicians and patients alike. A new study moves that dream closer to reality with a device that makes encapsulating cells much faster, cheaper and more effective.
A new study of healthy older adults shows that just one session of exercise increased activation in the brain circuits associated with memory — including the hippocampus — which shrinks with age and is the brain region attacked first in Alzheimer’s d…
Scientists have applied new computer models to identify where cesspool conversion and marine conservation efforts will minimize human impacts on coral reefs.
A new study has found that people who reported intense feelings of responsibility were susceptible to developing Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) or Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD).
