Gene mutations accumulating in cells are typical of the development of cancer. Finnish researchers found that a similar accumulation of mutations occurs also in some patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
 
 Inconsiderate supplementation of iron may impair ability to fight against Salmonella
 
Inconsiderate supplementation of iron may impair ability to fight against SalmonellaOne would think that too much iron is too much iron - whether it is ingested from particular foods or stored in the body genetically - and that pathogens such as Salmonella would grow identically in either case.

 Could a blood test predict how cancer spreads in children?
 
Could a blood test predict how cancer spreads in children?Traditionally, we use biopsies to try to predict how cancer spreads. There are a number of molecular markers that are used, but biopsy is a limited approach. Now, the current trend is to use liquid biopsy, which is basically a blood sample.
