Brain Mechanisms that Give The Iceman Unusual Resistance to Cold

The researchers from the Wayne State University School of Medicine demonstrate how the human brain responds during cold exposure and what brain mechanisms may endow prolonged resistance to cold exposure. The study, published in the journal NeuroImage, hypothesize that by generating a stress-induced analgesic response in gray matter, the person may promote the spontaneous release of opioids and cannabinoids in the brain.

S. epidermidis produce a Molecule That Kills Cancer Cells

According to this study, researchers examined a strain of S. epidermidis was shown to produce a molecule that kills cancer cells and inhibits the development of skin tumors in mice. Science continues to peel away layers of the skin microbiome to reveal its protective properties. They showed a potential new role for some bacteria on the skin: protecting against cancer. The study was published in Science Advances

Insights of Human Gut microbiome

Human gut microbiota plays an essential role in both healthy and diseased states of humans. In the past decade, the interactions between microorganisms and tumors have attracted much attention in the efforts understanding various features of the complex microbial communities, as well as the possible mechanisms through which the microbiota are involved in cancer prevention, carcinogenesis, and anti-cancer therapy.
