According to a study, researchers examined renal Transplantation and Malignant Melanoma, Solid organ transplantation, although lifesaving for patients with end-stage renal, liver, or heart disease, requires chronic immunosuppressive therapy that increases the risk for cancer, including lymphoma and skin cancer.
The discovery of a new toxin in a strain of Enterococcus is raising scientific eyebrows. Isolated from cow feces sampled at a South Carolina farm, the bug was unexpectedly found to carry a toxin resembling the toxin that causes botulism. The finding was reported in the journal Cell Host and Microbe .
Researchers evaluated the safety, survival and anti-tumour activity of tumour-specific T cells rendered resistant to transforming growth factor β (TGFβ), in patients with Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) positive lymphoma. The study outcomes appear in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.
In a new study published in the issue of Science Translational Medicine, researchers have developed a simple, swallowable test (>90% sensitive) for early detection of Barrett's esophagus that offers promise for preventing deaths from esophageal adenocarcinoma.
Among postmenopausal women with normal body mass index (BMI), those with higher body fat levels had an increased risk for invasive breast cancer, according to data presented at the American Association for Cancer Research Special Conference Obesity and Cancer: Mechanisms Underlying Etiology and Outcomes held Jan. 27-30.
Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, revealed about the human brain and when the typical globular brain shape of modern humans evolved. Their analyses based on changes in endocranial size and shape in Homo sapiens fossils show that brain organization, and possibly brain function, evolved gradually within our species and unexpectedly reached modern conditions only recently. The study got published in Science Advances.
A first-of-its-kind study has found that the genetic diversity of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) is higher in the vaginal tract than in the bloodstream during early infection. This finding, published in PLOS Pathogens, supports the existence of a genetic bottleneck between the vaginal tract and the bloodstream.
A study led by researchers at RCSI (Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland) has identified a new genetic test that can be used to predict if a patient with epilepsy will develop an adverse reaction to a common anti-epileptic drug. The finding will help inform doctors to prescribe the safest and most beneficial treatment for patients with epilepsy. The study is published in the journal Neurology.
According to a new study, researchers observed during the development of an embryo, every single cell needs to know who it is, where it is, and what it must do. They have identified a gene that oversees the shape of the cell. To make a fully-grown organism in the right shape, the forms of many cells need to be changed in a coordinated way.
A new study research on the risk of dying from scheduled surgery in Africa is more than double the global average. According to a study shedding light on one of the continent's biggest but poorly investigated healthcare problems. The study published in The Lancet.
A new study published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry reported that omega-3s from fish are more effective than flaxseed and other oils when it comes to cancer prevention. Researchers have discovered that marine-based omega-3s are eight times more effective at inhibiting tumour development and growth.
