Cancer cells appear to depend on an unusual survival mechanism to spread around the body, according to an early study led by Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). The discovery could help with future development of novel ...
Oxford University research has found that a little-studied and relatively unknown part of the human immune system could be twice as important as previously thought.
A team led by researchers at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital report that mice lacking the protein Alix develop hydrocephalus or "water on the brain." Alix ensures that epithelial cells of the choroid plexus are oriented ...
A landmark study has given the most detailed picture yet of the genetics of bowel cancer - the UK's fourth most common cancer.
A new study has shown that changes in blood flow to different brain areas may be one of the earliest changes in the brain linked to Alzheimer's disease. The research is published today in the journal Nature Communications.
Mapping the molecular structure where medicine goes to work is a crucial step toward drug discovery against deadly diseases.
From a virus's point of view, invading our cells is a matter of survival. The virus makes a living by highjacking cellular processes to produce more of the proteins that make it up.
People with cancer are often told by their doctors approximately how long they have to live, and how well they will respond to treatments, but what if there were a way to improve the accuracy of doctors' predictions?
(Medical Xpress)—A team of researchers working in Germany has found that intentionally infecting mice that had rheumatoid arthritis with a parasite, led to reduced symptoms of the immune disorder. In their paper published ...
Scientists have found a way to simultaneously monitor the switching on and off of circadian "clock" genes and their effects on mouse behaviour in real-time.
