Researchers have designed nanoparticles that can be attached to T-cells and release T-cell-stimulating molecules called cytokines, that activate T-cells to attack nearby tumour cells.
A new study is bound to change the biology textbooks, as scientists show that parental chromosomes are kept apart during embryo’s first division.
Even in light of the rising fears of “superbugs” in the world of big pharma, the marginal profits made through the development of antibiotics isn’t enough to justify the research.
Scientists have developed a technique that shows individual cancer cells in a tumour in real-time, revealing which cells that interact with a drug and which cells the drug fails to reach.
One year after researchers published their work on a physiological test for autism, a follow-up study has confirmed its exceptional success in assessing whether a child is on the autism spectrum.
Scientists have gained a glimpse of how marks on our genes that could be linked to adverse health outcomes in later life behave in the first few days after conception.
Scientists are taking advantage of the “self-homing” abilities of cancer cells and are creating armies of cancer-killing cells using CRISPR gene-editing.
Researchers have created an artificial intelligence system for predicting, not simply tracking, potential side effects from drug combinations.
A new analysis shows that the US health care system will save money in the long run by screening people born in Asia and Africa for the hepatitis B virus, which causes liver cancer and cirrhosis.
The CRISPR genome editing method has been delivered directly in human sperm cells giving hope that correcting mutations in human sperm cells is possible and may lead to the prevention of disease being passed on by fathers.
A new type of zebrafish that produces fluorescent tags in migratory embryonic nerve precursor cells could help researchers find the origins of the third-most common pediatric cancer in the U.S.
Biochemists have discovered the cause of genome editing failures with the ‘hyped’ CRISPR system, and how the process can be made to be much more efficient.
Males who spend time in low temperatures prior to mating will produce offspring with more active brown adipose tissue, according to new research in mice.
Scientists have discovered a “big bang” of Alzheimer’s disease — the precise point at which a healthy protein becomes toxic but has not yet formed deadly tangles in the brain.
Dogs’ ancestors in the Americas almost totally disappeared hundreds of years ago, but left future generations a cancerous tumour that is still found in their canine descendants today, researchers say.
