A new study tried to redefine the causes of Alzheimer's disease (AD), arguing that it is likely triggered by the failure of a system that clears wastes from the brain and begins decades before memories fade.
The US scientists have identified how a gene mutation affects T cell function to promote immune disorders and then tested a treatment based on the discovery — successfully fixing donated immune cells from a 16-year-old boy with an abnormally low level of white blood cells called lymphopenia.
Research led by Chinese scientists may lead to a potential new therapy for the currently untreatable delayed neuropathy caused by acute exposure to insecticides or chemical weapons that attack the nervous system, a study published in the journal Cell Discovery revealed.
A new clinical study indicates that molecular test can pinpoint which patients will have a very low risk of death from breast cancer and that these ‘ultralow’ risk patients could be treated less aggressively, leading to fewer toxic effects.
Researchers have shown genetic clues left behind in shed cells, tissues, scales and feces by ocean animals can be used as forensic markers to accurately and easily survey marine life in complex deep-water environments.
