Researchers from The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) and PATH's Malaria Vaccine Initiative (MVI) have shed light on how the human immune system recognizes the malaria parasite though investigation of antibodies generated from the RTS,S malaria vaccine — work that could boost the development of a more potent vaccine against the global killer.

While refining ways to grow arterial endothelial cells in the lab, a regenerative biology team at the Morgridge Institute for Research unexpectedly unearthed a powerful new model for studying a hallmark of vascular disease.
The team, led by Morgridge Institute Fellow Dave Vereide, describes in the issue of Stem Cell Research a new method of creating human arterial endothelial cells from cord blood and adult bone marrow sources. These cells, which have been notoriously difficult to grow in stable quantities, are essential to any future tissue engineering efforts to combat heart disease.
Findings from the first human trials of a breakthrough gas-sensing swallowable capsule could revolutionise the way that gut disorders and diseases are prevented and diagnosed.
A new study published in the journal Neuropharmacology shows that psilocybin can help ease the symptoms of depression among persons who have not been responding adequately to the treatment of depression. It is seen to improve the responsiveness of the brain to emotions in these patients.

According to Alexandra Larsen of North Carolina State University in the US who led the first ever study taking a long-term look into the effects that wildfire smoke has on air quality across the US. The article was appeared in the Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology
Physical training can help improve or maintain gait ability in older long-term nursing home (LTNH) residents, according to a systematic review published online on December 6 in Maturitas.
An international group of researchers has discovered a new phenomenon that occurs in identical twins: independent of their identical genes, they share an additional level of molecular similarity that influences their biological characteristics. The reasearch results were appeared in the journal Genome Biology. The researchers propose a mechanism to explain the extra level of similarity and show that it is associated with risk of cancer in adulthood.
According to this study, researchers decline the newest and most advanced of its kind in Chicago, cared for about two dozen patients within its first three hours. UChicago Medicine expects to begin providing adult trauma services in May 2018, pending approval by the Illinois Department of Public Health.The new ED, located in the ground floor of 5656 S. Maryland Ave., replaced the previous facility in the Bernard A. Mitchell Hospital that was built in 1983.
