New findings confirm dihydroartemisinin-piperaquine, the first-line treatment for Plasmodium falciparum malaria infection in Cambodia, has failed in certain provinces due to parasite resistance to artemisinin and piperaquine. Additional study findings suggest that artesunate, a form of artemisinin,…

Cell therapies for heart ailments involve transplanting over a billion heart cells to the patient's heart. Many of these cells fail to engraft, however, compromising the benefits. One reason for the poor engraftment is that normally the heart cell population is a mixture of cells with different…

Protein deposits in cells, such as those associated with diseases like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, can also be beneficial -- at least for yeast cells, as biochemists have discovered. The researchers found a new form of age-associated deposits in these cells, and they are now asking us to rethink…
