21/03/2018Scientists from the "Hopp Children's Cancer Center" at the NCT Heidelberg (KiTZ) and the Neuropathology Department at Heidelberg University Hospital have substantially enhanced the classification of tumors of the central nervous system (CNS).
20/03/2018UCalgary researchers discover an important clue to help predict disease.
20/03/2018German Research Foundation extends project aimed at combating multi-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii strains.
19/03/2018Washington State University researchers have discovered a genetic variation that predicts how well people perform certain mental tasks when they are sleep deprived.
19/03/2018While cognitive abilities naturally decline with age, eating one serving of leafy green vegetables a day may aid in preserving memory and thinking skills as a person grows older, according to a study by researchers at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. The study results were published in the December 20, issue of Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.
16/03/2018The accumulation of mutations in the human genome is at the origin of cancers, as well as the development of resistance to treatments. The Cyclin E and Myc genes are active in the control of cell division. When they are mutated, for example in response to a carcinogen, these genes induce cells to start replicating their DNA prematurely during the cell cycle.
16/03/2018Metabolic changes in cells can occur at the earliest stages of disease. In most cases, knowledge of those signals is limited, since we usually detect disease only after it has done significant damage.
