Bystander T cells Could Suppress Type 1 Diabetes

New research revealed that bystander cell accumulation antagonizes cell-killing by specific CTLs, curbing inflammation. This nonspecific suppression might explain viral interference in autoimmunity and the regulation of organ-specific autoimmune response.

Importance Of Screening In Bowel Cancer

According to BBC newsreader George Alagiah, Scotland has improved cancer screening procedures compared to England. Alagiah, a Sri Lankan born journalist, is 62 and is diagnosed with a stage 4 cancer of the bowel that relapsed little before Christmas.

Method To Prevent And Manage Falls In Older Adults

Each year, up to a third of adults over the age of 65 experiences a fall. It’s even worse for people living in nursing homes, about half of whom fall each year. Almost two-thirds of older adults who suffered a fall within the past year would fall again.

Lunar Dust Has Great Influence On The Health Of Astronauts

A comparative study between the lunar soil simulant (LSS) and PM2.5 was performed to discover their harm to human biological systems and explore the methods of prevention and treatment of dust poisoning for future lunar manned landings. The steps to the moon never stopped after the Apollo Project. Lessons from manned landings on the moon have shown that lunar dust has great influence on the health of astronauts.

New Insights Of The Smallest Brain Circuits

According to a study, researchers analyzed the electrical activity of hundreds of neurons as they fire inside the brain of a mouse model for up to half an hour at a time. Neurons are highly active spontaneously, so 30 minutes is a very long time. They focused on the interactions between neurons at multiple time-scales from milliseconds to minutes.

Chronic Otitis Media With And Without Cholesteatoma

Chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) with and without cholesteatoma is regarded as chronic inflammation of the middle ear and mastoid mucosa that can be associated with the presence of granulation tissue and infection, which can lead to ossicular damage and hearing loss, but it is commonly known that cholesteatoma behaves aggressively.

To Create Protein Outside A Cell For Therapeutics Purpose

According to a new study, scientists have established a new method to produce proteins outside of a cell that could have important implications in therapeutics and biomaterials. The advance could make possible decentralized manufacturing and distribution processes for protein therapeutics that might, in the future, promote better access to costly drugs all over the world. The study was published online in Nature Communications.
