Researchers have used whole genome sequencing to analyse breast cancers and reveal which are more responsive to treatments, which could improve the development of oncologic therapies.
From the world’s flagship neutron science facility, Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL), Matthew Blakeley shares insights into how they are harnessing the power of neutrons to aid their search for new cancer treatments.
Researchers have discovered a direct link between the protein aggregation in nerve cells that is typical for neurodegenerative diseases, and the regulation of gene expression in Huntington's disease...
The HLF gene is necessary for maintaining our blood stem cells in a resting state, which is crucial for ensuring normal blood production.
Research from King’s College in London, UK, and Lund University in Sweden could explain why diabetes drugs that have worked in animal experiments are not equally successful in humans. The researchers discovered differences – as well as hitherto unknown similarities – in the function of insulin-producing beta cells.
Researchers in dermatology at Lund University in Sweden believe they have cracked the mystery of why our bodies can quickly prevent an infection from spreading uncontrollably during wounding. They believe this knowledge may be significant in developing new ways to counteract bacteria.
In a collaboration between Swedish and Italian researchers, the aim was to analyse how the brain interprets information from a virtual experience of touch, created by a finger prosthesis with artificial sensation. The result was – completely unexpectedly – a new method for measuring brain health.
Our blood stem cells generate around a thousand billion new blood cells every day. But the blood stem cells’ capacity to produce blood changes as we age. This leads to older people being more susceptible to anaemia, lowered immunity and a greater risk of developing certain kinds of blood cancer.
