High-fiber diet may inhibit gout-related inflammation

High-fiber diet may inhibit gout-related inflammation

New research published in the Journal of Leukocyte Biology, shows that a high-fiber diet likely inhibits gout-related inflammation caused by monosodium urate (MSU) crystals. [More]
How does the brain control appetite?

How does the brain control appetite?

Energy balance between energy intake and expenditure in our bodies is important for maintaining energy homeostasis to keep our bodies functioning properly. The appetite determines how much we eat, the energy intake, by communication between the brain and body. [More]

MMP9 enzyme could suppress tumors in colitis associated cancer, new study finds

An enzyme that plays an active role in inflammation could be a natural way to suppress tumors and ulcers in the colon that are found in colitis associated cancer (CAC), a type of colorectal cancer that is driven by chronic inflammation, according to a new study. [More]

Specific gene pathway appears to regulate growth, structure, and organization of cerebral cortex

Specific gene pathway appears to regulate growth, structure, and organization of cerebral cortex

One of the most significant ways in which the human brain is unique is the size and structure of the cerebral cortex. But what drives the growth of the human cortex, likely the foundation for our unique intellectual abilities? [More]
New active pharmaceutical ingredient may help against severe forms of testicular cancer

New active pharmaceutical ingredient may help against severe forms of testicular cancer

A new active pharmaceutical ingredient may help against severe forms of testicular cancer, which only respond inadequately to other therapies. [More]
Scientists find explanation for vulnerability of children to collateral damage from cancer treatment

Scientists find explanation for vulnerability of children to collateral damage from cancer treatment

Despite many successes in treating pediatric cancer, young children remain at high risk for developing severe, long-lasting impairments in their brain, heart, and other vital organs from chemotherapy and radiation treatments. In adults, however, these tissues are relatively spared. [More]
New study reveals IRBIT's role in facilitating apoptosis

New study reveals IRBIT's role in facilitating apoptosis

Billions of cells in our bodies die every day in an important process called apoptosis. Now, researchers at the RIKEN Brain Science Institute have mapped out a sequence of events that are necessary for apoptosis to occur properly. [More]
Research finds link between p53 pathway and ribosome biogenesis, nucleotide metabolism in DBA

Research finds link between p53 pathway and ribosome biogenesis, nucleotide metabolism in DBA

Diamond Blackfan Anemia (DBA) is a condition that is characterized by a failure of the bone marrow to produce red blood cells, congenital abnormalities, and a predisposition to cancer. [More]
Scientists isolate and characterize therapy-resistant dormant leukemia cells

Scientists isolate and characterize therapy-resistant dormant leukemia cells

Dr. Irmela Jeremias from Helmholtz Zentrum München and her colleagues have succeeded in finding a small population of inactive leukemia cells that is responsible for relapse of the disease. [More]
Lactate component responsible for anti-tumor effects of plasma medicine, research shows

Lactate component responsible for anti-tumor effects of plasma medicine, research shows

Physical plasma is one of the four fundamental states of matter, together with solid, liquid, and gas, and can be completely or partially ionized (thermal/hot or non-thermal/cold plasma, respectively). [More]
Novel plasma medicine with anti-tumor effect discovered

Novel plasma medicine with anti-tumor effect discovered

Nagoya University researchers develop cold plasma-activated Ringer's solution for chemotherapy. The solution has anti-tumor effects in vitro and in vivo that derive from the lactate component. [More]
Enzyme that cleaves beta carotene may control testosterone levels

Enzyme that cleaves beta carotene may control testosterone levels

An enzyme that converts the dietary carotenoid beta carotene into vitamin A in the body may also regulate testosterone levels and growth of the prostate, a new study found. [More]
Study highlights requirement of protein in initiation of apoptosis in uveal melanoma

Study highlights requirement of protein in initiation of apoptosis in uveal melanoma

New research from the University of Liverpool has identified the role of a specific protein in the human body that can help prevent the survival and spread of eye cancer, by initiating cancer 'cell-suicide'. [More]
Applying quantitative microscopy to live cells

Applying quantitative microscopy to live cells

Microscopy's got a long history. It was developed about 350 years ago for scientists to visualize things they could discern, but not describe. The two pioneers of microscopy were Antoine van Leeuwenhoek, who developed the first microscope and soon after the renowned scientist, Robert Hooke. [More]
UC San Diego scientists reveal surprising role for Hippo pathway in subduing tumor immunogenicity

UC San Diego scientists reveal surprising role for Hippo pathway in subduing tumor immunogenicity

Previous studies identified the Hippo pathway kinases LATS1/2 as a tumor suppressor, but new research led by University of California San Diego School of Medicine scientists reveals a surprising role for these enzymes in subduing cancer immunity. The findings, published in Cell on December 1, could have a clinical role in improving efficiency of immunotherapy drugs. [More]
Scientists discover unique genomic changes integral to testicular cancer development

Scientists discover unique genomic changes integral to testicular cancer development

Researchers led by scientists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute say they have identified unique genomic changes that may be integral to testicular cancer development and explain why the great majority are highly curable with chemotherapy - unlike most solid tumors. [More]
Targeting metabolic function of breast cancer may help combat disease

Targeting metabolic function of breast cancer may help combat disease

How does a cancer cell burn calories? New research from Thomas Jefferson University shows that breast cancer cells rely on a different process for turning fuel into energy than normal cells. [More]
