Researchers from German studied on the Misfolded proteins cause many diseases including neurodegenerative conditions and cancer. To protect themselves from protein misfolding, cells have developed sophisticated quality control mechanisms. How these function in the case of protein misfolding in mitochondria is now the subject of research currently being conducted by Dr. Christian Münch at the Institute of Biochemistry II of Goethe University Frankfurt.

Researchers said these susceptibilities can happen anywhere. After Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, cases of West Nile disease doubled the next year. Climate change in Africa appears to be increasing cases of malaria. And the recent destruction in Houston, Florida and Puerto Rico due to hurricanes may usher in more infectious diseases in the years ahead.
According to researchers, a common, inexpensive drug that is used to prevent heart attacks and lower blood pressure may also help melanoma patients live longer. This study has been published in the journal OncoImmunology.
Researchers from Kumamoto University found that AgNPs have a propensity to conglomerate, which results in a reduction of antibacterial attributes. They solved the conglomeration problem by coating the nanoparticles with gold. This study was published in the Royal Society of Chemistry Journal Nanoscale.
Neuro Kinetics, Inc. (NKI), the global leader in clinical eye tracking and neural functional assessments, announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) recently awarded it three more patents , increasing NKI's patent count to twenty two (22 ).
New research published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine reported that a drug ibrutinib, approved to treat chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) might be less effective in a particular subset of patients.
According to the study, Long-term results of the randomized multinational Trial to Reduce Insulin-Dependent Diabetes Mellitus in the Genetically at Risk (TRIGR). Avoidance of cow's milk in infants at high risk for type 1 diabetes doesn't prevent growth of the condition during childhood. This study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Researchers at Keck Medicine of USC looked to a custom recording tool similar in concept to a flight recorder on an airplane. When attached to a robotic surgery system during radical prostatectomy procedures, the most common treatment for prostate cancer, the "black box" recorder captured data that could be used to discern the difference between novice and expert surgeons. The results of the study will appear in the January 2018 edition of The Journal of Urology.
According to the Cardiff University researchers, drugs designed for the treatment of central nervous system diseases could also be used to prevent the development of injury-induced arthritis, potentially saving the NHS around half a billion pounds a year.
Low peak lung function (defined as forced expiratory volume in 1 second [FEV1] <80% predicted) in early adulthood is associated with an increased prevalence and earlier incidence of respiratory, cardiovascular, and metabolic comorbidities, as well as premature death, according to the results of a recent transgenerational Spanish cohort analysis published in the Lancet Respiratory Medicine.
The researchers from the University of Alberta have discovered a mechanism that may make cancer cells more susceptible to radiotherapy and chemotherapy. The research team found that the protein RYBP prevents DNA repair in cancer cells, including breast cancer.
The first clinical study of a low-cost, hand-held jaundice detector invented by Rice University students could not have come at a better time for NEST360°, an international team of scientists, doctors, and global health experts preparing for a Dec. 11 competition for $100 million from the MacArthur Foundation. The money would allow the team to carry out its visionary plan to halve the number of newborn deaths in African hospitals within 10 years.
