The World Health Organisation (WHO) has put scientists and health workers around the globe on alert for a new and potentially deadly pathogen – Disease X.
Bacteria in the small intestines of mice and humans can travel to other organs and trigger an autoimmune response, according to a new study.
A new study suggests that how empathic we are is not just a result of our upbringing and experience but also partly a result of our genes.
With the help of a new radioactive tracer, doctors can predict with more than 80 percent accuracy how well a widely-used lung cancer drug will combat tumours.
Researchers have developed a technique that allowed them to determine at diagnosis whether children with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia would relapse following treatment.
Home genetic tests like AncestryDNA and 23andMe are more popular than ever. But having widespread access to personal genetic information—without the knowledge of how to interpret results—can lead to problems.
To unearth new functional regions in the human genome with potential roles in shaping clinically important traits, researchers are using animals with extraordinary traits to reveal new elements.
New study brings new insights into the correlation of physical activity and dietary habits with weight gain in people who carry different variations of the FTO gene—aka ‘the fat gene.’
Scientists created an odd couple: a modified version of an immune-signalling protein and a coordinately modified receptor for this protein. The two bind only to each other, easing an advanced anti-cancer therapy’s side effects.
Researchers report that they have developed a method for identifying splicing-based biomarkers for the most common form of liver cancer. They believe the method will be useful in other cancer types as well.
