Technology could help prevent life-threatening infections in patients receiving chemotherapy.
The lack of anti-inflammatory molecules in the brain and other problems with the immune system can impair working memory and ability to learn, say Russian scientists published an article in the journal Neuroreport.
Multi-resistent microbes are a growing danger. The often unnecessary and mass use of antibiotics causes the impassivity of pathogens against drugs. Infections that were easily curable up to now, may become life threatening.
As we grow older, our muscular function declines. A new study by researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden shows how an unexpectedly high number of mutations in the stem cells of muscles impair cell regeneration. This discovery may result in new medication to build stronger muscles even when in old age
Using a variation of CRISPR gene editing may be a potential strategy for mimicking the protective effects of a genetic mutation linked to lower cholesterol levels and heart disease risks
