A new technique can precisely measure the growth of many individual cells simultaneously. The advance holds promise for fast drug tests, offers new insights into growth variation across single cells within larger populations, and helps track the dynamic growth of cells to changing environmental…

Researchers have been investigating the canals to look for traces of these molecules which are referred to as 'perfumes ' in the ingredients of products that we use daily.

A new study on acquired resistance (AQR) to combination drug treatment in cancer has been conducted, with results demonstrating that the mechanisms of AQR for the combination drugs were different from that of the individual drugs. The findings from this study could potentially contribute to…

People with the most common type of lung cancer whose disease has spread to the brain could be spared potentially harmful whole brain radiotherapy, according to new research. The phase 3 randomized trial found that whole brain radiotherapy had no beneficial effect on length or quality of survival…

A potent chemotherapy drug can be life saving for children with cancer, but a new review highlights how it can have long-lasting negative effects on the heart. A recent review also indicates that this chemotherapy-related heart damage may be prevented by a cardioprotective drug.

A new study shows that increased physical activity among patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) reduces their risk of anxiety or depression.

New research shows that reduced fetal size is linked to increased asthma risk and reduced lung function in children aged 5 to 15 years.

A new study shows that smoking reduces calorie intake, possibly modulated by its effect on levels of the hormone ghrelin (also known as the hunger hormone).

Childhood body mass index (BMI) has been associated with hospital admissions for asthma in early adulthood, with overweight BMI measures increasing the risk of admission in women and underweight BMI measures increasing the risk in men.

A year's course of benralizumab injections has led to a significant decrease in the frequency of asthma exacerbations -- cutting the rate of exacerbations by a third to a half compared with placebo among people with the most severe form of asthma, according to two phase 3, double-blind, randomized…

New research examines the way our bodies, specifically our brains, become "stress-resilient." There is a significant variation in the way individuals react and respond to extreme stress and adversity—some individuals develop psychiatric conditions such as posttraumatic stress disorder or major…

New research examines whether or not, and to what extent, a combination of spiritual meditation and migraine medication affects analgesic medication usage.

Individuals who are born with a low birth weight are less likely to be good at sports at school or participate in exercise later on in life. The study used data from the Medical Research Council National Survey for Health and Development, a unique birth cohort that closely monitors a group of…

Cell models from stem cells serve an ever-increasing role in research of cardiac dysfunction. Researchers have succeeded in producing cells which offer new insights into properties of the heart. They installed a molecular sensor into the cells which emits light, and not only makes the cells'…

Scientists are developing an early diagnosis system for neurodegenerative disorders. The system is intended to such diseases as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and others. The diagnosis system is based on virtual reality (VR) – a person is immersed in a virtual environment to carry out some…

Cancer thrives when mutated cells undergo frequent division. Most anti-cancer drugs work by inserting themselves in between the DNA base pairs that encode our genetic information. This process is known as intercalation, and it can result in subtle changes to the DNA molecule's geometric shape or…

A highly efficient method has been developed to convert abundant organic molecules into new medicines. A new report describes a way to convert carbon-hydrogen bonds into nitriles, common components of bioactive molecules used in medicinal and agricultural applications.

Chemists have invented a new technique for constructing one-handed or 'chiral' drug molecules. The new method is already being adopted by pharmaceutical researchers.

Scientists who last year identified new gene mutations unique to colon cancers in African Americans, have now found that tumors with these mutations are highly aggressive and more likely to recur and metastasize.

Potential outbreaks of diseases such as Ebola and Lassa fever may be more accurately predicted thanks to a new mathematical model. This could in turn help inform public health messages to prevent outbreaks spreading more widely.

It was already known that genes inherited from ancient retroviruses are essential to the placenta in mammals. Scientists have now revealed a new chapter in this astonishing story: these genes of viral origin may also be responsible for the more developed muscle mass seen in males.

Graphene oxide flakes can be welded together into solid materials that may be suitable for bone implants, according to an international study.

Encouraging hospital births are an important component of reducing maternal mortality in low-resource settings. Now, new research shows certain factors, including age and income, determine whether women living in rural Nepal have home births or hospital deliveries.

At the dinner table, babies do a lot more than play with their sippy cups, new research suggests.

A study of an enzyme that helps build and repair DNA in living organisms increases our understanding of how these processes are controlled and how we can use this to combat infections.
