A new study describes a prenatal test that might predict autism - but the authors have patented the proteins and formed a company to sell the test, long before the science is in. The claims surrounding the study are fraught with problems.
The threat from a heart attack doesn't end with the event itself. Blockage of blood flow to the heart can cause irreversible cell death and scarring. With transplants scarce, half the people who live through a heart attack die within five years.
The way the stomach detects and tells our brains how full we are becomes damaged in obese people but does not return to normal once they lose weight, according to new research from the University of Adelaide.
A new technology is showing promise as the basis for a much-needed home test to diagnose influenza quickly, before the window for taking antiviral drugs slams shut and sick people spread the virus to others, scientists reported.
Everyone grows older, but scientists don't really understand why. Now, a new study has uncovered a biological clock embedded in our genomes that may shed light on why our bodies age and how we can slow the process.
A protein increased by endurance exercise has been isolated and given to non-exercising mice, turning on genes that promote brain health and encourage the growth of new nerves involved in learning and memory, researchers say.
Oral bacteria from poor dental hygiene have been linked to brain tissue degeneration, according to new evidence from an international team of researchers, including one at the University of Florida College of Dentistry.
The FDA has approved the first, long-awaited, and safe method for tracking stem cells in the human body. The approach could lead to dramatic advances in the area of regenerative medicine and cancer therapies.
Working with mice, researchers have discovered that weeks of treatment with a repurposed FDA-approved drug halted the growth of— and ultimately left no detectable trace of— brain tumor cells taken from adult human patients.
The reasons behind why it often takes people several weeks to feel the effect of newly prescribed antidepressants remains somewhat of a mystery– and likely, a frustration to both patients and physicians.
The process of glycosylation, where sugar molecules are attached to proteins, has long been of interest to scientists, particularly because certain sugar molecules are present in very high numbers in cancer cells.
Scientists from UC San Francisco have identified a new way to manipulate the immune system that may keep it from attacking the body’s own molecules in autoimmune diseases such as type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis.
(Medical Xpress)—Falling asleep in your bed at night and being 'put to sleep' under general anesthesia – as well as waking up in the morning or coming out of anesthesia – aren't quite the same thing, yet they share some important similarities.
