Optimal Diet And Bacteria Combination Limits Cancer Progression

A combination of prebiotics, such as dietary fibre, and probiotics, i.e. specific beneficial bacteria, reduces the expression of pro-carcinogenic and drug resistance genes, new research indicates. The combination, found by a team of scientists from the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) and the Life Sciences Research Unit (LSRU) at the University of Luxembourg, leads […]

Cell Study Reveals How Head Injuries Lead To Serious Brain Diseases

How head injuries adversely affect individual cells and genes that can lead to serious brain disorders is detailed in a new study from biologists at UCLA. The scientists provide the first cell “atlas” of the hippocampus when it is affected by traumatic brain injury. The team also proposes gene candidates for treating brain diseases associated […]

How Scientists Are Untangling The Mystery Of Developmental Disorders

Evie Walker sits on Alison’s lap, playing a game she never grows tired of: turning her mum’s hand over and over, stroking and examining it. When she takes a break and looks around, it is with the open-mouthed look of curiosity and awe that you see in many infants. Evie’s vocabulary currently consists of a […]

Combined Analysis Identifies Targetable Neo-antigens In Melanoma

An ultra-personalized immunotherapy approach could help immune cells improve their abilities to recognize melanoma cells and kill them, a study led by researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science showed. Today’s immunotherapies involve administering antibodies to unlock the natural immune T cells that recognize and kill cancer cells; or else growing and reactivating these T cells […]
