It's not just the volume of emails that causes stress; it's our well-intentioned habits and our need to feel in control that backfires on us, new research suggests.

Antibodies combat viruses and bacteria. They also attach themselves to cancer cells – in a typical, characteristic way. Scientists are using this property to detect cancer cells in tissue samples. Such rapid tests can already be applied by surgeons during operations – within a few minutes and…

Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are a popular treatment for facial lines and wrinkles, but early degradation of fillers may limit how long their effects last. Experimental evidence supports a simple technique for prolonging the effects of HA dermal fillers: using them together with botulinum toxin.

The out-of-hospital birth setting in Oregon was associated with a higher risk of perinatal death, while the in-hospital birth setting was associated with a higher risk for cesarean delivery and other obstetric interventions (e.g., induction or augmentation of labor), according a new American study.

Taking a high dose of vitamin D3 is safe for people with multiple sclerosis and may help regulate the body's hyperactive immune response, according to a pilot study.

Colorectal cancer is the third most diagnosed cancer in the world, with population screening being recommended for early disease detection, however, the most optimal method to screen for the disease remains unknown.

The CRISPR technique has been used to treat an adult mouse model of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. This marks the first time that CRISPR has successfully treated a genetic disease inside a fully developed living mammal with a strategy that has the potential to be translated to human therapy.

Cancers with KRAS-related gene mutations might benefit from a triple therapy with two experimental drugs plus radiation therapy, a new study in mice has shown.

The world's largest database for cancer drug discovery has been revolutionized by adding 3-D structures of faulty proteins and maps of cancer's communication networks, according to a new report.

Using a new gene-editing technique, a team of scientists has stopped progression of Duchenne muscular dystrophy in young mice. DMD, the most common and severe form of muscular dystrophy among boys, is characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness. The disease affects one in 3,500 to…

Researchers report that they are at the forefront of discovering and mapping out the complexities of the structures involved in a process of pri-miRNA biogenesis. For the first time, the team has elucidated a three dimensional image of DROSHA, one part of the Microprocessor complex. Understanding…

The high amounts of dietary sugar in the typical western diet may increase the risk of breast cancer and metastasis to the lungs, according to a new study.

Molecular biologists have identified a gene called NORAD that helps maintain the proper number of chromosomes in cells, and that when inactivated, causes the number of chromosomes in a cell to become unstable, a key feature of cancer cells.

Scientists have for the first time revealed how malaria parasites cause an inflammatory reaction that sabotages our body's ability to protect itself against the disease.The discovery opens up the possibility of improving new or existing malaria vaccines by boosting key immune cells needed for…

The body can control inflammatory response triggered by invasions of microbial pathogens, such as bacteria and viruses, a discovery that could lead to the development of new therapeutic agents for uncontrolled inflammation, according to researchers.

Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure, and scientists have found that infusing just a small dose of a cytokine, thought to help cause that failure, can instead prevent or reverse it.

Researchers at a laboratory for research of molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying learning and memory found that "repairing" the activity led to an improvement in memory. A start-up they established on the basis of the findings will attempt to develop drugs delaying the onset of cognitive…

Scientists have demonstrated a new way of controlling electrons by confining them in a device made out of atomically thin materials, and applying external electric and magnetic fields.

Transmissible cancers are believed to arise extremely rarely in nature. One of the few known transmissible cancers causes facial tumors in Tasmanian devils, and is threatening this species with extinction. Today, scientists report the discovery of a second transmissible cancer in Tasmanian devils.…

The beneficial effects of using psychological therapy to treat the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome are not only short term but are also long lasting, a new meta-analysis has found.

The specialized human ability to perceive the sound quality known as 'pitch' can no longer be listed as unique to humans. Researchers report new behavioral evidence that marmosets, ancient monkeys, appear to use auditory cues similar to humans to distinguish between low and high notes. The…

A microencapsulation method can help to overcome major challenges in pancreatic islet transplantation, say researchers. The microencapsulation method can help to overcome some major challenges in pancreatic islet transplantation, including the scarcity of available islets and the lack of simple and…

A new groundbreaking mechanism that generates super-antibodies that can broadly target malaria parasites has been described in a new article. The antibodies described in this study were not only special for their broad reactivity, but also for their novel and surprising structure characterized by…

Researchers reveal a completely new biological mechanism that underlies cancer. By studying brain tumors that carry mutations in the isocitrate dehydrogenase genes, the team uncovered some unusual changes in the instructions for how the genome folds up on itself.

Largest study ever of pulmonary hypertension shows effective treatment may get easier for the mostly young women patients who have the rare heart disease. The oral drug Selexipag reduced hospitalizations and worsening symptoms.
