Researchers are exploring the potential use of HDAC inhibitors, a group of drugs known for their capability to impede tumour cell division, to reduce the pain and damage associated with sickle cell disease. The drugs have shown initial evidence of reactivating the gene responsible for producing foetal haemoglobin, which cannot…
Results show the number of specialised immune cells available for fighting skin cancer doubled when a new treatment blocked their escape from melanoma tumours.
Researchers have gained a clearer understanding of the genetic and molecular machinery in human microglia, findings that may provide insight into Alzheimer’s diseases development.
Researchers identify how acetylcholine sets off a signal cascade in brain cells that directly influence aversive learning and memory formation. The findings may open door to new therapeutic strategies for Alzheimer’s disease.
