Game-Changing "Deep Visual Proteomics" Exposes Cancer's Vulnerabilities
Researchers have developed a new ground-breaking method called "Deep Visual Proteomics" which could help determine why and how diseases like cancer arise.
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.
Ultrafast Imaging Reveals Brain Activity in Unprecedented Detail
A new imaging method has been developed to enable visualization of both blood flow and the activity of the entire brain at the same time.
Theoretical Framework Designed To Help Identify Cancers Caused by Multiple Mutations
Researchers at Rice University have developed a theoretical framework to explain how cancers caused by more than one genetic mutation can be more easily identified and possibly stopped.
Antibiotic Use in Over 60s Increases Risk of IBD
The more antibiotics prescribed to patients 60 and older, the more likely they were to develop inflammatory bowel disease, suggesting antibiotic use may be linked to increases in Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis in older people.
Genomic Analysis Reveals Pink Pigeon Is at Risk of Extinction
A major study on the once critically endangered pink pigeon says a high load of bad genetic mutations puts it at considerable risk of extinction in the wild within 100 years without continued conservation actions.
Mapping Shows How the Brain Shrinks in Parkinson's Disease
A study has tracked the changes in brain volumes of Parkinson's patients over 8.8 years to provide a map of which parts of the brain change as the disease progresses.
“Chaperone” Protein Delivers Zinc Where It’s Needed
Despite zinc’s critical role, however, it has not been clear how the metal gets put into proteins that use it or how our cells respond to zinc deficiency, until now.
New Method Provides a 3D Map of Cells' Activities
A new method has been developed that enables analysis of the spatial patterns of gene expression in three dimensions, permitting greater understanding of how a cell's environment can impact gene expression.
Air Pollution Cuts Could Save $600 Billion and 50,000 US Lives Every Year
A new study has highlighted the health benefits of eliminating air pollution emissions from energy-related activities.
