A study has found that EPO (erythropoietin) – best known as a performance-enhancing drug in sport – may improve cognitive functioning in patients suffering from bipolar disorder or depression. This raises hope for the first long-term treatment for this problem, which affects hundreds of millions of…

Everyday experience shows us that when the background is cluttered, it's harder to find an object. But how should we define "complexity" and can we apply the same concepts to other animals?

We all know that social insects, such as ants, often work together to achieve effective responses to environmental challenges. However, new research has now uncovered that the contributions of different individuals within such groups vary.

A diet high in calcium and low in lactose may reduce the risk of ovarian cancer in African-American women, research indicates. The work also found sun exposure in the summer months may reduce the risk of developing the disease in this population.

A new mechanism for a bacterial toxin to inhibit inflammation has now been discovered, report scientists. The research shows that a toxin in Yersinia pestis, the bacterial agent of plague, targets and inhibits the protein pyrin. The inherited autoinflammatory disease Familial Mediterranean Fever…

A greater emphasis on immune-based prevention should be central to new efforts like the federal Cancer Moonshot program, headed by Vice President Joe Biden, cancer researchers from across the United States write.

Every year in the United States, thousands of high-risk fracture patients who have been admitted to trauma centers will suffer life-threatening blood clots related to the fracture. To reduce this risk, doctors have prescribed low molecular weight heparin. But some researchers argue that aspirin may…

With the addition of four new reference materials (RMs) to a growing collection of 'measuring sticks' for gene sequencing, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) can now provide laboratories with even more capability to accurately "map" DNA for genetic testing, medical diagnoses…

Why do some foodborne bacteria make us sick? A new study has found that pathogens in the intestinal tract cause harm because they benefit from immune system responses designed to repair the very damage to the intestinal lining caused by the bacteria in the first place.

Mutant traits have, for the first time, been identified in the mouse for 52 human disease genes. This significantly contributes to the understanding of the genetic bases for some human diseases.

About one-third of 1751 genes studied in the first comprehensive survey of the mouse genome are essential to life, according to new research. Mutations of these genes cause death at the embryo stage. Many of them have counterparts in the human genome, so understanding why these genes are so vital…
