TGen scientists identify potent inhibitory compound for treatment against glioblastoma

A study led by scientists at the Translational Genomics Research Institute has identified "a potent inhibitory compound" in the elusive hunt for an improved treatment against glioblastoma, the most common and deadly type of adult brain cancer. [More]
Chemotherapy-induced senescent cells promote side effects and cancer relapse

Chemotherapy-induced senescent cells promote side effects and cancer relapse

Standard chemotherapy is a blunt force instrument against cancer - and it's a rare cancer patient who escapes debilitating side effects from systemic treatments that mostly affect dividing cells, both malignant and healthy, throughout the body. [More]

Bruker has been involved in the Phenome Center network since its beginning. Several years ago, the whole visionary concept of a global phenome network was actually born with Professor Jeremy Nicholson and Bruker BioSpin has been part of it since the early stages. [More]
Better fungal disease diagnostics could be critical to fight against antimicrobial resistance

Better fungal disease diagnostics could be critical to fight against antimicrobial resistance

Poor diagnosis worldwide of fungal disease causes doctors to overprescribe antibiotics, increasing harmful resistance to antimicrobial drugs, according to a paper published today in Emerging Infectious Diseases. [More]
Ludwig study uncovers ancient cellular response that underlies spread of aggressive skin cancer

Ludwig study uncovers ancient cellular response that underlies spread of aggressive skin cancer

Each day, more than 1,600 people die from cancer in the US, and 450 in the UK, mostly because the disease has spread beyond a stage when surgery is an effective cure and has become resistant to therapy. Despite decades of research, understanding why cancer cells become invasive has remained shrouded in mystery. [More]

Researchers discover how deficiency of IgM antibodies can lead to increased risk of arteriosclerosis

Researchers discover how deficiency of IgM antibodies can lead to increased risk of arteriosclerosis

Following a blood infection, the first class of antibodies produced by the immune system are IgM antibodies. [More]
The 10th annual symposium at UC Riverside focuses on glial-neuronal interactions in health and disease

The 10th annual symposium at UC Riverside focuses on glial-neuronal interactions in health and disease

The brain is home to two kinds of cells: neurons and glia, with the latter protecting the former. Glia, the stuff between neurons, are important also because they regulate and define neuron-neuron communication. [More]
Cancers acquire resistance to immunotherapy by eliminating tumor-specific genetic mutations

Cancers acquire resistance to immunotherapy by eliminating tumor-specific genetic mutations

Results of an initial study of tumors from patients with lung cancer or head and neck cancer suggest that the widespread acquired resistance to immunotherapy drugs known as checkpoint inhibitors may be due to the elimination of certain genetic mutations needed to enable the immune system to recognize and attack malignant cells.
