New Immunotherapy Inhibits Tumor Growth

Scientists at the VIB-UGent Center for Medical Biotechnology have taken important steps toward the development of cancer-targeting immunotherapy. The research team developed a treatment in mice that destroys part of the tumor and stimulates the immune system to attack persistent surviving cancer cells.

Women Might Need More Nutrient-Rich Diet

Women might need a more nutrient-rich diet to support a positive emotional well-being, according to new research from Binghamton University, State University at New York. Mounting evidence suggests that anatomical and functional differences in men's and women's brain dictate susceptibility to mental disease. 

Morphophysiological Of Human Brain Cell

Scientists have uncovered a new type of human brain cell that has never been seen in mice and other well-studied laboratory animals. They are really can't understand the specialty of the human brain. Studying the differences at the level of cells and circuits is a good place to start, and now we have new tools to do just that. The study was published in the journal Nature Neuroscience.

Light-Emitting Nanoparticles Used To See Deep In Living Tissue

Researchers have demonstrated how light-emitting nanoparticles, it can be used to see deep in living tissue. The specially designed nanoparticles can be excited by ultralow-power laser light at near-infrared wavelengths considered safe for the human body.

They absorb this light and then emit visible light that can be measured by standard imaging equipment. The development and biological imaging application of these nanoparticles is detailed in a study published online in Nature Communications.

 

Visualizing Human Cochlea Using Contrast Imaging

The researcher showed the interest in providing people who suffer from sensorineural hearing loss with a richer music-listening experience has led a young Harvard researcher to the Canadian Light Source (CLS) and to a discovery that opens the door to exciting new avenues for the study and diagnosis of human inner ear diseases. The study was published in the journal Biomedical Optics Express.

Itchy Skin Could Be Warning Sign Of Diabetes

Diabetes symptoms include frequent urination and unexplained weight loss, but itchy skin could also be an early warning sign. Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high.

Most people with type-1 diabetes are born with the condition, while type-2 can come on at any time. Type-2 diabetes develops when the body becomes resistant to insulin or when the pancreas stops producing enough insulin.

Type-2 Diabetes

Common type-2 diabetes symptoms include frequent urination, a sudden increase in appetite, moods swings and problems sleeping. But there are some other ways to spot the early warning signs of the disease.
