Patients with Huntington's disease, a fatal genetic illness that causes the breakdown of nerve cells in the brain, have up to 80 percent less cancer than the general population.
In the largest study to date on children in a low/ middle-income country, new research in Ghana finds that the timing of a measles vaccine in an overall vaccination schedule can have a profound impact on child survival rates beyond protecting against measles infection.
Scientists have developed a way to identify biomarkers for a wide range of diseases by assessing the antibodies we are making to the complex sugars coating our cells.
Engineers, doctors and scientists at UCLA and Rutgers University have developed a tool that measures the physical strength of individual cells 100 times faster than current technologies.
Two GlycoNet Investigators are using technology to better understand how sugars in the human body are connected to Alzheimer's disease.
AMU team of researchers led by dr Honorata Hafke-Dys from AMU Institute of Acoustics (Faculty of Physics), have designed a new and intelligent stethoscope.
People born with heart defects who survive into adulthood may be at higher risk of developing dementia, particularly dementia that starts before 65 years of age, according to new research in the American Heart Association's journal Circulation.
Scientists make important discovery about cellular cargo transport mechanism associated with neurological disorders
Researchers from The Scripps Research Institute have discovered new information about how motor proteins called dyneins interact with another protein called dynactin to transport molecules to different parts of a cell.
A new study found that ultrasound imaging in combination with a blood test for alpha fetoprotein improved the detection of early-stage liver cancer by 40%.
A new optical imaging system which uses infrared light has shown promise in predicting early responses to chemotherapy in breast cancer patients.
People who were bullied by siblings during childhood are up to three times more likely to develop psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia in early adulthood, according to new research by the University of Warwick.
Scientists in Sweden today reported a nanoengineering innovation that offers hope for treatment of cancer, infections and other health problems - conductive wires of DNA enhanced with gold which could be used to electrically measure hundreds of biological processes simultaneously.
Lymphoedema is fluid retention in the tissue caused by damage to the lymphatic system and is one of the most serious side-effects of cancer operations.
GlobalData reveals increasing demand for IVD testing as focus on personalized medicine becomes the norm
The in vitro diagnostic testing market is one of the fastest-growing segments within the medtech industry.
A new study in the American Journal of Hypertension, published by Oxford University Press, suggests that higher yogurt intake is associated with lower cardiovascular disease risk among hypertensive men and women.
New evidence of a biological link between diet and depression has come from the first study to analyze associations between diet, body mass index, inflammatory markers and mental health in adolescents.
The risk of invasive breast cancer is increased in postmenopausal women with a normal body mass index (BMI) but higher levels of body fat, meaning that a large portion of the population has an unrecognized risk of developing cancer.
Combining ultrasound imaging with a blood test for high alpha fetoprotein levels improves detection of early-stage liver cancer by as much as 40 percent, researchers at UT Southwestern's Simmons Cancer Center found.
Chemist Robert Doyle in the College of Arts and Sciences at Syracuse University has figured out how to control glucose levels in the bloodstream without the usual side effects of nausea, vomiting or malaise.
Some animals, including the zebrafish, have a high capacity to regenerate tissues, allowing them to recovery fully after cardiac injury. During this process, the heart muscle cells divide to replace the damaged tissue.
