Scientists have taken a significant step toward developing a new vaccine for malaria, revealing for the first time an ‘atomic-scale’ blueprint of how the parasite invades human cells.
Genomics has the potential to significantly improve the efficacy of drugs and develop targeted therapies.
Researchers have created nanoparticles that can zap tumours with significant amounts of heat under a low magnetic field.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the first drug derived from Marijuana to treat two rare and severe forms of epilepsy. Will the U.K. follow?
There’s no therapy developed yet, that can stop cancer cells from moving throughout the body. New research shows that it may be possible to do so, in freezing cancer cells and killing them where they stand.
Psychiatric disorders share many genetic variants, while neurological disorders appear more distinct, according to a new study from the Brainstorm Consortium.
A mechanism enabling cells to bind and isolate toxic substances could have significant implications for how tumours develop resistance to certain types of chemotherapy.
We’d all dearly like to see a cure for the common cold, but it never quite seems to arrive. So what’s the hold-up — and will it be over soon? Getting rid of this scourge is nothing to be sneezed at.
Computational researchers have developed a computer program which has revealed a previously unknown combination of drugs that may be the answer to triple-negative breast cancer.
The Swiss drugmaker has clearly noticed the genomic profiling group’s ability to personalise cancer care, now that it will take complete ownership of the company.
Researchers have identified a new subtype of prostate cancer that occurs in about 7% of patients with advanced disease. This subset of tumours was responsive to immunotherapy treatment.
Digital health devices have become invaluable tools for improving human health. However, could a pill carrying an inbuilt sensor dehumanize patients, reducing them to a digital readout?
A team of researchers have invented a new cell identification and sorting system that combines a novel imaging technique with artificial intelligence, to identify and sort cells with unprecedented high-throughput speed.
