A new clinical trial indicates that stem cell transplants can prevent the progression of MS. The transplants also helped to improve the symptoms of patients.
Being obese or having a higher BMI while carrying a BRCA mutation is positively linked with higher levels of damage to the DNA in normal breast gland cells, new research suggests.
UK-based genomics data platform Global Gene Corp and American genetics company, Regeneron Genetics Center announced yesterday that they will collaborate to create the world’s largest project of its kind to study Indian population.
