More than 20 percent of people affected by Diamond-Blackfan anemia, a rare disease, develop various types of tumors throughout their lives. Now researchers have created the first animal model with this type of anemia that also recapitulates the predisposition to cancer. The finding could…

To protect future generations against genomic havoc, defects in innate defense systems usually result in sterility. In animals, the main defense against troublemaking transposons is the Piwi-interacting RNA pathway. A team has identified a protein the Piwi system uses to guide a cell's…

Researchers report the strongest evidence yet that rising antibiotic resistance could have disastrous consequences for patients undergoing surgery or cancer chemotherapy. New estimates suggest that up to half of infections after surgery and over a quarter of infections after chemotherapy are caused…

Researchers working with zebrafish have published a study providing new insights into the causes of the congenital heart defects associated with a rare developmental disorder. The disorder, Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS), is estimated to occur in up to one in 10,000 births worldwide. CdLS causes…

People with high blood pressure develop changes in their hearts even before symptoms appear, new research shows. These changes are known to put people at risk of dying early, and the new work suggests it is possible for doctors to recognize such signs of heart disease earlier than they can today --…
