A nine-year research project looking at the link between sugar and cancer has led to an important breakthrough in cancer research.
Results from a new study conducted at the Institute of Cancer Research, London, suggests cancer cells that remain in the body after treatment, utilize the immune system of the body to wake themselves up and boost their growth.
My lab, broadly speaking, is interested in trying to understand interactions between cells and materials. Those could be materials that are present within living tissue or materials that we use for engineering purposes to try to do something of technological or therapeutic interest.
A new study, conducted by the University of Cincinnati (UC) biology professors Michal Polak and Joshua Benoit, suggests that a father's nutrition could play a similar role to the mother’s nutrition in his offspring’s health. Researchers from the University of Sydney's Charles Perkins Centre and the University of Western Australia also collaborated on the study.
There are two main things that we've worked on in the lab as regards to drug studies. One is identifying new combinations of drugs, and working on why a combination of drugs should work better than each alone.
NHS England has said it will be banning the sale of “super-sized” chocolate bars in hospital shops, canteens and vending machines.

Mental health, as with any other aspects of health, can be affected by a range of socioeconomic factors that need to be addressed through comprehensive strategies involving access to preventions, treatments and facilitating recovery as well as raising awareness.
The majority of people have heard of the term leukemia, but evidence suggests many people are not aware that leukaemia is a cancer of the blood. ‘Leuk’ means white and ‘emia’ refers to a condition of the blood. Hence, the term leukemia specifically refers to cancers of the white blood cells.

Osmometry is a method to determine a sample´s osmolality. This is the total number of osmotically active particles solved in a solution. These particles influence the colligative properties of the solution, which include the boiling and freezing point but also the vapor pressure for instance.
