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 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.
There are very few reported cases of children inheriting almost all of their genes from a single parent, but this 11-year-old girl is the first one so far without any signs of cancer.
A new technique for precisely targeting molecules within cells is paving the way for safer medicines that are free of side effects.
The US Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar has approved adding a test for spinal muscular atrophy to the list of recommended newborn screens in the United States.
People living in England will be the first in the world to have access to DNA tests as routine care starting this fall, putting the NHS at the forefront of healthcare, as it takes a huge step towards precision medicine.
Scientists have identified a molecular pathway that allows females to be more resilient to maternal stress than males which might explain why males are more at risk than females for neurodevelopmental disorders.
For many women diagnosed with breast cancer, genetic testing can offer important information that might guide treatment choices. A new study finds that surgeons are a key influence.
New research links higher body fat with lower breast cancer risk before menopause.
“Artificial ovaries” are offering an alternative, safer, option for women that are infertile following chemotherapy treatment as for the first time ever, scientists have successfully isolated viable, early stage follicles in ovarian tissue scaffold in mice.
The discovery of molecular rules that regulate the transfer of genetic material between bacteria could help prevent the spread of antibiotic resistance.
The “Born in Guangzhou Cohort Study” is looking to recruit 50,000 baby-mother sets by 2020. Since 2012, 1.6 million samples have been collected for the project and the some of the first findings have been published.
