An international team of researchers have identified a new method for clearing senescent cells, which could transform treatments for ageing and related conditions.
Researchers propose faster method for recording data to DNA, showing promise in fields of digital data storage, neuron recording
Our DNA is very similar to that of the chimpanzee, which in evolutionary terms is our closest living relative. Stem cell researchers at Lund University in Sweden have now found a previously overlooked part of our DNA, so-called non-coded DNA, that appears to contribute to a difference which, despite all our similarities, may explain why our brains work differently. The study is published in the journal Cell Stem Cell.
Common gut bacteria can fuel the growth of prostate cancers and allow them to evade the effects of treatment, a new study finds.
Smidt Heart Institute researchers have found that taking high doses of fish oil supplements—specifically one gram or more per day—may increase the risk of developing atrial fibrillation, an abnormal heart rhythm disturbance with potentially serious complications.
A remarkable number of life-threatening diseases manifest more severely in males than in females. One current example is COVID-19 caused by SARS CoV-2. Another example is the significantly higher risk of severe cancer progression for men. A research team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now discovered a molecular cause for this difference between sexes.
