Researchers found that the type of brain cell afflicted in Parkinson’s-related brain disorders dictates which pathological form of α-synuclein (α-syn) protein becomes the disease culprit.
A new weakness found in medulloblastoma could lead to more personalised medicine and improved treatment for some patients.
Researchers have found that amyloid-? facilitates the interaction between the plaques and abnormal tau.
The multiplex and high-throughput capabilities of next-generation sequencing (NGS) allow researchers to study an immense number of DNA/RNA molecules per run, bringing opportunities to study biological or clinical research questions that could not be addressed before...
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.
Cells behave differently when removed from their environments, just as cells that develop in cultures do not behave like cells in living creatures.
Ilpo Kulmala, Principal Scientist at VTT Ltd, explains the role that transportation plays in the spread of infectious diseases...
Bacterial resistance to antibiotics is on the rise and a return to the ‘pre-antibiotic’ era has become a frightening possibility. Various factors are responsible for this situation: the overuse of antibiotics in human medicine and animal husbandry, insufficient public funding for research into fundamental bacteriology including resistance mechanisms, and a…
