Dame Sally Davies insists that learning more about a patient’s genetic makeup will lead to a better and more cost-effective approach, that will ultimately spare resources in the system.
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.
Genetically engineered cancer-killing T-cells can hunt and attack brain tumours that display a new molecular target that is highly prevalent on brain cancer cells, report researchers
Scientists have identified a single genetic change in Salmonella that is playing a key role in the devastating epidemic of bloodstream infections currently killing around 400,000 people each year in sub-Saharan Africa.
The development of new drugs currently focuses on just 60 percent of potential drug targets, a new study indicates.
A new technology platform lets scientists systematically modify and customize bacteriophages, viruses that can attack and kill specific bacteria.
Brain scientists have filmed a first-of-a-kind birth video. It reveals specialized cells in the brains of mice dividing to create newborn nerve cells.
Researchers have found a structure on the small viruses that deliver gene therapy that makes them better at crossing from the bloodstream into the brain.
Scientists have successfully produced human kidney tissue within a living organism which is able to produce urine, a first for medical science.
DNA twitches during transcription to bring distant regions in contact and enhance gene expression, according to Stanford researchers, who devised a new way to label individual, nonrepetitive DNA sequences.
Researchers have identified a new stem cell pathway that allows a highly aggressive form of breast cancer—triple-negative breast cancer—to thrive.
