Neuroscientists have pinpointed a mechanism in the brain responsible for a common type of age-related memory loss.
Peptide Combats Cancer Progression in Animal Model
A peptide has been designed that can trigger cell death in murine melanoma cells, preventing cancer progression.
Light Shed on Disease Processes of Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever
According to research, natural immune responses in mice contribute to disease severity in those infected with Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus.
Gene Mutation Predisposes Individuals to Severe Staphylococcus Infections
Staphylococcus aureus infections can be highly unpredictable – some cause a slight rash, whereas others can lead to deadly complications – and researchers have identified a genetic mutation that could be the cause of these differences.
New Cancer Drug Target Identified With Fewer Side Effects
Researchers have identified a new molecular drug target that could result in new cancer drugs with fewer side effects by restricting blood vessel growth.
Multiple Myeloma Test Detects More Deadly Forms of the Disease
Investigators say that a standard test for the common blood cancer multiple myeloma also holds clear clues that the patient has one of the most uncommon and deadly forms of this cancer, IgD multiple myeloma.
Gene-Targeted Approach Could Help Prevent and Treat Neonatal Brain Injuries

Gout Medication Improves Survival for Patients Hospitalized With Heart Failure
A new study published in Clinical Cardiology found that colchicine, A common gout medication, significantly improves survival rates for patients hospitalized with worsening heart failure.
Predicting Response to Arthritis Treatment by Studying Genes
Research from Queen Mary University of London has shown that molecular profiling of diseased joint tissue can significantly impact whether specific drug treatments will work to treat patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
Epilepsy Drug Halts Growth of Tumors by Suppressing Neurons in Mouse Model
People with neurofibromatosis type 1 have hyperexcitable neurons which leads to tumors developing. Researchers have identified that an epilepsy drug can suppress this hyperactivity and halt tumor growth.
