Researchers have developed a cell line that allows the mechanisms of prostate cancer bone metastasis to be studied in immunocompetent mice.
Despite the human genome being first sequenced almost 20 years ago, researchers know comparatively little about how the genome is organised within cells. But a new TSA-Seq technique is changing that.
An experimental drug is reported to have potential to treat Epstein-Barr virus related lymphomas by counteracting the cancer-promoting mechanisms of LMP2A...
A cancer drug for patients with certain types of leukaemia and lymphoma can also prevent reactions to some of the most common airborne allergens, according to a recent Northwestern Medicine study. The promising data from this pilot study could have greater implications for adults with food allergies.
A new study shows that a variant in UBQLN4 gene has been associated with Lou Gehrig's disease, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The study also describes how this gene variant disrupts a cellular process that drives motor neuron development. This new insight opens the door to potential treatment targets for…
