A new study conducted in Israel suggests that T cells’ ability to destroy skin cancer increases in the absence of T-cell regulators called SLAMF6.
Scientists in the US have applied a novel technique to finally unravel a particular kinase enzyme that is associated with familial Parkinson’s disease; providing a clearer potential therapeutic target.
A team of researchers in Singapore has studied the activity of a receptor protein to identify whether it’s a key player in the development of neuropathy for patients undergoing chemotherapy.
Results of an international collaboration show promise for the future of motor neurone disease treatment efforts, as protective gene is identified.
The body’s means of maintaining health are diverse and plentiful, and now researchers in Japan have identified another metaphorical string to its bow: the ability to prevent cell damage using cleanup clusterin proteins that channel damaged proteins for disposal.
A collaboration of academic institutions in the United States has identified a gene that is linked to alternative splicing changes that occur in several cancers.
A study in Finland has found a strong connection between the A143T variant of the GLA gene and increased risk of Fabry cardiomyopathy, which affects the heart, kidneys and nervous system.
Scientists in Japan have identified an important protein that can impact the course of cancer and its fate in the human body.
A promising route for tackling the often-fatal MERS-coronavirus (MERS-CoV) has been identified by researchers in Germany.
A possible new avenue for treatment of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) has opened up after US scientists pinpoint how the cancer spreads using excessive amounts of vitamin B6.
A team of scientists in the United States has successfully used a drug, which blocks AHR receptors, to prevent and treat obesity in mice. Their findings have spurred further research into the receptors’ association with diet and the gut microbiome.
Scientists have idenified that variation in a gene called Mucin 6 appears to indicate a tendency for acquiring Alzheimer’s disease.
This week a new collaborative European project is being launched that aims to re-invigorate the way that research into life sciences and biomedicine is organised and funded. The project, named ORION, will be coordinated by The Centre for Genomic Regulation in Barcelona, Spain, who is one of nine partners taking…
Medically active substances are usually distributed via the blood – either directly or indirectly. In many diseases, however, it is vital to transport the active substance as efficiently as possible to the required target site. This is the case for diseases of the central nervous system, so the treatment of…
