Atherosclerosis is largely caused by oxidised blood fats. The research findings presented in a new study by researchers from the Lund University show that A1M stops the oxidation of blood fats … Continue Reading Researchers identify ‘cleaner’ protein which protects against atherosclerosis in P-O-C.
In recent years, a standard follow-up to colorectal cancer surgery has been to analyze the tumour tissue for the presence of immune cells. Finding high quantities of cytotoxic T cells, … Continue Reading Activated immune cells indicate a favourable prognosis in colorectal cancer.
Rice University scientists have developed a hydrogel that can be injected into an internal wound and help it heal while slowly degrading as it is replaced by natural tissue and … Continue Reading Researchers develop ‘injectable’ blood vessels.
The thickness of cortical brain tissue progressively reduces as individuals develop psychosis, according to researchers of a large, multi-site study of young adults at clinical high risk. Onset of psychosis … Continue Reading Large-scale neuroimaging study links gray matter loss to psychosis development.
When a promising nicotine vaccine failed in clinical trials a few years ago, scientists from The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) were determined to keep trying to help smokers overcome their … Continue Reading Scientists design a nicotine vaccine which provokes a robust immune response.
A new study from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) researchers has found, for the first time, evidence of neuroinflammation in key regions of the brains of patients with chronic pain. By … Continue Reading Neuroimaging study finds first evidence of neuroinflammation in brains of chronic pain patients.
Researchers discover new molecular-based immune response which protects lungs during severe infections.
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have discovered a novel molecular mechanism that tightens the bonds between the cells that line blood vessels to form a leak-proof barrier. … Continue Reading Researchers discover new molecular-based immune response which protects lungs during severe infections.
When it comes to skin infections, a healthy and robust immune response may depend greatly upon what lies beneath. In a new study published in the journal Science, researchers at … Continue Reading Scientists identify new immune response via human fat cells.
Walter and Eliza Hall Institute researchers have for the first time revealed how dying cells are hidden from the immune ‘police’ that patrol the body. The research answers a decades-old … Continue Reading Decades-old mystery about the death of cells uncovered by scientists.
A multi-disciplinary research team from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has made a breakthrough discovery of a new type of immune cells that may help in the development of … Continue Reading Researchers make breakthrough discovery of a new type of immune cell.
The rapid evolution of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), which has allowed the virus to develop resistance to patients’ natural immunity, is at the same time slowing the virus’s ability … Continue Reading Research suggests ability of HIV to cause AIDS is slowing.
By studying the mode of action of the interleukin-33 protein, an alarmin for white blood cells, a team at the Institut de Pharmacologie et de Biologie Structurale has been able … Continue Reading New study reveals key step in allergic reactions.
