In a pre-clinical study, researchers from the US set out to develop a treatment for sepsis. Here, Daniel Morales-Mantilla, Dr Robin Parihar and Dr Katherine King, from Baylor College of Medicine, describe how they utilised haematopoietic stem and progenitor cell infusion to improve the survival of mice from sepsis.

The endocannabinoid system may play a role in the development of autism spectrum disorder and might be key to treating people with severe forms of the condition. In this commentary, Dr Karen Litwa, Assistant Professor at East Carolina University’s Brody School of Medicine, US explores how a bioelectronic assay is…
Researchers in the US have developed a new CRISPR method for treating genetic conditions using nickases that they say is safer and more effective.
A new study has shown that it is possible to reverse key process that allows pancreatic cancer cells to grow and spread around the body.
This infographic will explore Mycoplasma contamination in cell cultures and the best technologies for detection.
A new study in mice has highlighted that gut beneficial bacteria can be transferred from mothers to infants through breast milk and help infants defend against infection-induced diarrheal illness.
For the first time, researchers have tested a molecule that combines three distinct technologies against glioblastoma, the most aggressive type of brain cancer.
Researchers have shown that tiny, robust immune particles derived from a llama’s blood could provide strong protection against every COVID-19 variant.
Researchers have found that blocking certain acetylcholine receptors in the lateral habenula made it harder to resist seeking cocaine in a rat model of addiction.
Researchers have linked resistance to kidney cancer treatment to low mitochondrial content in cancer cells
When the researchers increased the mitochondrial content with an inhibitor, the cancer cells responded to the treatment.
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.
Antibiotic resistance is one of the key health challenges of the future. Researchers have carried out a multi-step analysis – including grating-coupled interferometry (GCI) – to deliver insights into translocation of the hydrophobic and hydrophilic portions of the large lipopolysaccharide (LPS) molecules through the outer membrane of Neisseria gonorrhoeae. This…
New £4.25 million grant kick starts UK-wide collaborative research effort to end motor neuron disease
A £4.25 million research grant has been awarded seeks to discover meaningful MND treatments within years.
New research has shown that using viral and bacterial vaccine approaches together is safe and far more effective at fighting the cancer than either approach by itself.
