An experimental immune-system therapy appears safe for people with progressive forms of multiple sclerosis. And it may ease symptoms in some, a preliminary study suggests. The findings are based on just six patients, and the Australian researchers stressed that a lot of...
Inspired by viruses that attack and kill bacteria, researchers at The Rockefeller University have created an entirely new weapon against disease-causing bacteria that shows great promise for treating drug-resistant infections. In...
Strawberry extract can inhibit the spread of laboratory-grown breast cancer cells, even when they are inoculated in female mice to induce tumors, new research shows. However, the scientists do point out that these results from animal testing can not be extrapolated to humans.
Salk Institute and Chinese researchers said they have created a new kind of stem cell, one that is more versatile than any other grown in the lab. The new cell type, called an extended pluripotent stem cell, can give rise to every...
New clues to the wiring of the brain have now been uncovered by a team of researchers. They found that neurons in brain regions that store memory can form networks in the absence of synaptic activity.
