New MRI Technique Can ‘See’ Molecular Changes In The Brain

The study find that the MRI’s give us a picture of our body’s insides organs, bones, nerves and soft tissue. But what if MRI’s could show us the molecular makeup of our body parts; and help doctors more quickly determine the onset of disease and begin treatment? In a paper published today in Nature Communications,…

The Susceptibility Of T Cells To HIV 1 Infection State

According to the study researchers determining the infection with parasitic helminths; which can reduce the susceptibility of T-cells to HIV-1 infection. Parasitic helminths such as Schistosoma mansoni (S. mansoni) have developed a number of strategies to evade, skew and dampen human immune responses, including the modulation of CD4+ T-lymphocyte responses. Since CD4+ T-lymphocytes are the main cell…

Algorithm Based On Response, Biology Guides Neuroblastoma Therapy

The researches find that the based on prognostic markers, including allelic status of chromosomes 1p and 11q, patients were initially assigned to receive two, four, or eight cycles of therapy with or without surgery; the ultimate duration of treatment was based on overall response. The researchers found that subsets of patients had a reduction in…

New Way To Measure Distances At The Nanoscale One Nanometer

New Way To Measure Distances At The Nanoscale One Nanometer

According to the study, scientists developing an optical ruler; that can measure down to the nanoscale; the study developing a new way to measure distances at the nanoscale one nanometer; being one billionth of a meter using light. Devices that use light to see objects, such as microscopes, have a fundamental limitation based on the laws…
