Myocardial infarction, or MI, causes irreversible necrosis of heart muscle secondary to prolonged ischemia. Scar tissue begins to build almost immediately, leading to the loss of contractile myocardium, which is a frequent cause of chronic heart failure. However, a new...
Some heritable but unstable genetic mutations that are passed from parent to affected offspring may not be easy to investigate using current human-induced pluripotent stem cell modeling techniques, according to research...
A team of researchers in Japan has developed a new platform for culturing human pluripotent stem cells that provides far more control of culture conditions than previous tools by using micro and nanotechnologies. The Multiplexed Artificial Cellular Microenvironment array...
Researchers at the University of Bradford in England developed a new drug delivery system using nanoparticles to combat an aggressive form of breast cancer. The team at the University of Bradford identified a peptide that in computer...
Attempts to cure HIV have been thwarted by a particular type of immune-system cell that can hide the virus. These long-lived infected T cells can evade detection by the body for years, and are hard to find, study and kill. Reliably identifying these covert reservoirs is...
Beneficial bacteria may be the key to helping to reverse a cycle of gut inflammation seen in certain inflammatory bowel diseases, University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers have found. In...
Researchers have discovered a common genetic variant that greatly affects normal brain aging in older adults. The discovery may point toward new targets for preventing or treating age-associated brain disorders such as Alzheimer's disease.
