New findings from the University of Pennsylvania suggest a mechanism that may explain how viruses can linger. Products of the viral infection called defective viral genomes (DVGs) which have been known to be involved in triggering an immune response, can also kick off a molecular pathway that keeps infected cells alive, the researchers discovered.
Norway's cross-country skiers will arrive in Pyeongchang hoping to continue their recent dominance in a sport that doubles as a national obsession, but even at home, there are questions over the ethical use of medicines by athletes.
In a new study reported in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, researchers from The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James) have identified a substance called Gdf-15 released by pancreatic cancer cells that protect them from attack by immune cells called macrophages.
One of the most intriguing properties of the brain is its means to undergo synaptic plasticity which represents the basis for learning and memory, abilities that severely decline in the case of dementia. A new study published in the scientific journal Brain suggests that particular proteins important in the communication between neurons could be targets for early interventions in patients with different types of dementias.
A new work published in Nature Communications reported a new blood stabilization method significantly prolongs the lifespan of blood samples for microfluidic sorting and transcriptome profiling of rare circulating tumour cells (CTCs) carried in the bloodstream.
The world's leading players' associations unveiled a universal declaration of player rights designed to give athletes a global voice and protect them from the fallout from corruption and a broken anti-doping system.
A new study published in the journals Cancer Cell has revealed that genomic technologies provide better insights into intestinal metaplasia (IM), a known risk factor for gastric (stomach) cancer. Patients with IM are six times more likely to develop stomach cancer than those without. The research could also help detect patients who are infected with the Helicobacter pylori bacteria, which is also linked to the disease.
A new study published in the Review of Economic Studies finds that Rhode Island's 6-year prostitution decriminalization policy increased the size of the sex market, but it also appears that during this period both rape offenses and female gonorrhea incidence declined dramatically.
Students' team from Kaunas University of Technology ( KTU ) is working on the development of dissolving contact eye lenses , which can be of great assistance for those suffering from glaucoma. The KTU team's Nano Lens idea of dissolving lens for glaucoma treatment has won the second place at the Silicon Valley Innovation Challenge in Best Global Innovation category.
According to this study, they examined 3615 extracted genes with dynamic expression during reprogramming process from five human cell types and addressed that shared reprogramming route exists in human cellular reprogramming.
New research showed that the marine cryptophytes offer a great source of EPA, DHA, and other ω-3 PUFAs when compared to freshwater species and marine cryptophytes have more DHA.
