Blood-based Biomarkers Can Help To Predict Recurrence of Triple Negative Breast CancerNews
Indiana University School of Medicine researchers have discovered that the presence of circulating tumor DNA and circulating tumor cells in the plasma of women's blood who have undergone chemotherapy prior to surgery for the treatment of stage 1, 2 or 3 triple negative breast cancer are critical indicators for the prediction of disease recurrence and disease-free survival.READ MORE
Microglia Devour Neuronal Sheaths To Prune the Developing BrainNews
Researchers have identified how specific brain cells interacting during development could be related to neurological and neuropsychiatric diseases, including some that occur later in life.
Our Desire To Share Before Analyzing Is Helping COVID-19 Misinformation SpreadNews
To stay current about the Covid-19 pandemic, people need to process health information when they read the news. Inevitably, that means people will be exposed to health misinformation, too, in the form of false content, often found online, about the illness. Now a new study contains insights that may help reduce the problem.
A trial of an experimental drug for a rare, inherited form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) has shown promise in an early-stage trial.READ MORE
After a traumatic brain injury, why do some people quickly regain their skills while others face long-lasting setbacks? Researchers have been trying to answer this question by understanding which parts of the brain are used to process sensory information and remember different skills.
A rat is less likely to help a trapped companion if it is with other rats that aren't helping, according to new research from the University of Chicago that showed the social psychological theory of the "bystander effect" in humans is present in these long-tailed rodents.
Scientists have demonstrated that a Salmonella biofilm protein can cause autoimmune responses and arthritis in animals and postulate a link with neurodegenerative disease onset.READ MORE
Hearing is widely thought to be the last sense to go in the dying process. Now UBC researchers have evidence that some people may still be able to hear while in an unresponsive state at the end of their life.
Fresh evidence shows that early exposure to vaccine-, bacterial- or microbiota-derived antigens has a dramatic effect on the diversity of antibodies an adult mammal will have to fight future infections by pathogens.READ MORE
A research team has used single-nucleus RNA sequencing approaches to compare transcriptional responses to acute cocaine in 16 unique cell populations from a portion of the brain called the nucleus accumbens, or NAc.READ MORE
A new shows that perhaps the microbial communities found deeper in the seafloor sediments in and around hydrocarbon seepage sites have more energy available and higher population turnover rates than previously thought.READ MORE
