A study by Brigham investigators revealed how genetic changes in certain types of brain cells may contribute to the inflammatory response seen in Alzheimer’s disease.
A research group led by Nagoya University’s Graduate School of Engineering has uncovered how rapid tendon regeneration occurs in newts.
A review in the journal “Foods” examines health-promoting compounds in wine and related products, focusing on technological advancements in their detection and study. It aims to inform winemaking and viticulture, enhancing human health benefits while preserving taste.
Study investigates the link between stress and autoimmunity, finding a correlation between higher levels of serum and brain-reactive antibodies and depression-like behaviors in mice and humans with Major Depressive Disorder.
Scientists have discovered new antiviral compounds from a rare bacterial strain, offering a novel approach to target hepatitis B virus. These compounds work by altering membrane permeability in infected cells, leading to the release of immature viral particles, a mechanism distinct from current HBV treatments.
Study investigates the relationship between loneliness and diabetes, finding that physical activity and BMI mediate this link, but diet quality does not. It highlights the complex interplay between loneliness, lifestyle factors, and diabetes risk, underscoring the need for targeted interventions to improve both mental and physical health.
Noted experts in cardiovascular rehabilitation attending the Third Jim Pattison-Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute Cardiac Rehabilitation Symposium (Banff, April 21-23, 2023) observed that although cardiac rehabilitation benefits diverse groups of patients and affords the most cost-effective prevention for recurrent events, it is grossly underutilized globally.
A government anti-smoking plan also includes costlier cigarettes and a ban on disposable vapes. Smoking is the leading cause of avoidable deaths in France.
Heart disease kills 18 million people each year, but the development of new therapies faces a bottleneck: no physiological model of the entire human heart exists – so far.
A research team at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and College of Medicine has been approved for a $14 million award from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) to study whether a higher daily dose of aspirin is more effective in decreasing the risk of dangerous blood pressure complications among some pregnant people.
Nov. 28, 2023 — The “sunscreen paradox” has confounded doctors of late: As more and more people use sunscreen, rates of melanoma and other skin cancers are going up. The statistics on all types of skin cancer are sobering: Invasive melanoma cases diagnosed annually increased 27% over the past 10 years. The rate of basal
Longevity drugs for our canine companions are moving closer to reality. They also raise questions about what it might mean to succeed.
A new paper in Science Advances details how scientists have succeeded in mapping a central part of the immune system – the HLA class II molecules – while accurately predicting how they display fragments of pathogens on the surface of cells.
Study explored the association between dietary insulin index (DII) and dietary insulin load (DIL) with metabolic healthy (MH) status and the serum levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and adropin among the Iranian adult population.
A heat shock protein protects the cells against protein clumping. It degrades, however, over longer treatment periods.
Ingenza and Phibro Ethanol – a division of Phibro Animal Health Corporation – have joined forces to engineer a novel yeast strain that will increase yield in the commercial production of bioethanol under both challenging and conventional environmental conditions, further driving the switch to clean biofuels.
Duke Cancer Institute researchers have identified potential biomarkers that predict the likelihood for checkpoint inhibitor drugs to backfire, driving hyper-progression of melanoma cells instead of unleashing the immune system to fight them.
Researchers performed a two-sample Mendelian randomization (MR) analysis to explore causal associations between Parkinson’s disease (PD) and cardio-cerebrovascular diseases.
Researchers reviewed existing data on the bio-modulatory effects of pomegranate (Punica granatum l., PG) polyphenols on metabolic disorders.
