The standard of care for adult patients with glioblastoma includes surgical resection, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, but even with those aggressive treatments median survival is only just over a year. The goal of the researchers is to understand how manipulating immunosuppressive pathways can increase survival when combined with existing therapies.
After adolescent rodents were exposed to THC, researchers noted substantial and persistent...
Previous studies have shown an association between high folic acid intake and a reduction in the...
Researchers show that stroke conditions may increase brain plasticity and recovery in some cases...
As more drugs hit the market, instances of women having complications from tested and approved drugs prompted the National Institutes of Health and Congress to require that women be included in research involving human subjects, officially named the Revitalization Act.
A group of drugs being developed to treat mood disorders could also relieve chronic pain, finds new UCL (University College London) research funded by the Medical Research Council.
Alcohol itself can directly damage liver cells. Now researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine report evidence that alcohol is also harmful to the liver for a second reason — it allows gut bacteria to migrate to the liver, promoting alcohol-induced liver disease.
Vinegar is the perfect ingredient for making tangy sauces and dressings. Now, researchers report in ACS' Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry that the popular liquid could also help fight ulcerative colitis, an inflammatory bowel disease that research suggests is related to the gut microbiome.
Despite enormous effort to find out an efficient treatment, current pharmacological interventions are limited to a few drugs that alleviate symptoms but do not slow down the underlying disease processes of Alzheimer's.
Some of the first experiments studying Zika virus in monkeys have begun, conducted by a broad UW–Madison team that includes the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center and expertise in infectious disease, pregnancy and neurology.
Pregnant mice that received a high fructose diet was more likely to give birth to offspring that were hypertensive, insulin resistant, and obese, according to a study presented at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine's annual meeting.
Researchers have conclusively identified the protein complex that controls the genes needed to repair skeletal muscle. The discovery clears up deep-rooted conflicting data and will now help streamline efforts towards boosting stem cell-mediated muscle regeneration.
Previous studies on the metabolic side effects of rapamycin have made it unclear whether the drug is safe as a long-term treatment. A recent study showed minimal metabolic side effects after continuous, long-term treatment with encapsulated rapamycin in a marmoset (monkey) model.
Publishing in the Royal Society journal Open Biology, the team led by Professor Maurice Elphick at QMUL’s School of Biological and Chemical Sciences report 40 new neuropeptide genes discovered for the first time in the common European starfish Asterias rubens.
A Washington State University biologist has found the genetic mechanism that lets a fish live in toxic, acidic water. The discovery opens new insights into the functioning of other “extremophiles” and how they adapt to their challenging environments.
A simple change in diet could boost vitamin D levels for millions of Americans suffering from Type 2 diabetes, according to new research from Iowa State University published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.
Microorganisms in the gut could play a role in reducing the severity of malaria, according to a new study co-authored by UT researchers.
It may be possible to increase the neuron reserve of the hippocampus – and thus improve preconditions for learning – by promoting neurogenesis via sustained aerobic exercise such as running.
