Researchers have shown how the MIS hormone can prevent ovulation in females, making it a potential new form of contraception.
Promising results have been shown in an animal model of Alzheimer's disease treated with zinc finger protein transcription factors.
SARS-CoV-2 diverts building blocks from glucose production to the assembly of purine bases, researchers have found.
Researchers have shown antibodies induced by the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are less effective at neutralising certain SARS-CoV-2 variants.
Researchers have used artificial intelligence to screen 80 FDA-approved drugs and reveal which could be used as Alzheimer's treatments.
In pre-clinical studies, a novel treatment decreased plaque formation, meaning it could be used to prevent Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers have shown that neutralising antibodies developed in COVID-19 patients were less potent if from those with severe or fatal disease.
Using CRISPR-Cas9, scientists have developed a new method for generating mouse lines for vaccine research in just a few weeks.
Researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital have studied several thousand circulating proteins within the plasma proteome of symptomatic COVID-19 patients and acutely ill non-COVID-19 controls. Nikki Withers discussed their findings and implications of the study with one of the lead authors, Dr Mike Filbin.
Certain sensory neurons and Substance P are potential drug targets for the development of novel allergy preventions or treatments, according to scientists.
A research team has developed a potentially universal flu vaccine that has demonstrated success in mice.
A new CRISPR technology has been created to understand mutations based on cytosine to guanine base changes and minimise unintended "off-target" mutations.
The 3D map, created using Knife-Edge Scanning Microscopy and analysed using laser capture microdissection, reveals new insights about the nervous control of the heart.
The Genome Aggregation Database (gnomAD) Consortium has released seven papers leveraging its database to study genetic variants and their potential for guiding discovery of safer drugs.
