Scientists have now have a high-resolution view of exactly how the experimental therapy ZMapp targets Ebola virus. The new study is also the first to show how an antibody in the ZMapp 'drug cocktail' targets a second Ebola virus protein, called sGP, whose vulnerable spots had previously been…

Nearly one-third of the adult population worldwide had hypertension in 2010. For the first time in history, high blood pressure is more common in low- and middle-income countries than in high-income countries. Three-quarters of the world's adults with hypertension live in low- and middle-income…

Many types of cancer are caused by gene mutations in the signalling pathways that control cell growth, such as the hedgehog signalling pathway. A new study now surprisingly shows that in colon cancer hedgehog signalling has a protective function.

A new study found that the risk of younger siblings developing an autism spectrum disorder is 14 times higher if an older sibling has ASD. The study also found the risk level was consistent across gestational age at birth.

Women's decreased ability to produce healthy eggs as they become older may be due to excessive scarring and inflammation in their ovaries, reports a new study in mice. This is the first study to show the ovarian environment ages and that aging affects the quality of eggs it produces. These findings…

For over 60 years, scientists have theorized that a person's body shape and size could be influenced by the climate of where they live. Now a new study suggests there's more to the equation. The paper is among the first to document how evolutionary selection has shaped variation in human limbs…

As humans evolved over many thousands of years, our bodies developed a system to help us when we start running and suddenly need more oxygen. Now, using that innate reflex as inspiration, researchers have developed a noninvasive way to treat potentially harmful breathing problems in babies who were…

A group of tribologists -- scientists who study the effect of friction in machines -- and computational materials scientists recently discovered a revolutionary diamond-like film that is generated by the heat and pressure of an automotive engine.

In contrast to the general belief that the airways of an infant are sterile until after birth, researchers have found that the infant airway is already colonized with bacteria when a baby is born -- and this is true for infants born as early as 24 weeks gestation. How microbes get into the airways…

Scientists have identified a marker that distinguishes PMN-MDSCs from neutrophils in the blood of patients with a variety of cancers. Study also showed that higher numbers of cells positive for the marker were associated with larger tumor size.

Elongated fibers (fibrils) of the beta-amyloid protein form the typical senile plaques present in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease. A research team has simultaneously succeeded in elucidating the structure of the most disease-relevant beta-amyloid peptide 1-42 fibrils at atomic…
