Apoptosis is programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.
Study finds that higher dietary intake of flavonol is linked to reduced all-cause mortality and lower risk of Alzheimer's disease, cancer, and cardiovascular disease in US adults.
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center today announced it has acquired certain assets from Bellicum Pharmaceuticals, Inc. related to the CaspaCIDe switch platform and the GoCAR platform.
Women diagnosed with ovarian cancer may initially respond well to chemotherapy, but the majority of them will develop resistance to treatment and die from the disease.
The effect of Interleukin-24 (IL-24) on CSCs and CAR-T cell therapy.
Review highlights magnesium's critical role in mitigating aging hallmarks, including telomere attrition, genomic instability, epigenetic alterations, loss of proteostasis, mitochondrial dysfunction, cellular senescence, and stem cell exhaustion, suggesting that maintaining adequate magnesium levels could support healthy aging.
Extracted from the core of sandalwood trees (santalum album tree), sandalwood oil has been used for many centuries by several cultures throughout the world for perfume, soaps, incense and candles.
Targeting senescent cells in the retina with a BCL-xL inhibitor shows promise as a durable treatment for diabetic macular edema, potentially offering long-term visual function improvements.
A team of researchers from Wayne State University was awarded a $1.4 million, three-year grant from the U.S. Department of Defense for the study, "Cytochrome c acetylation drives prostate cancer aggressiveness and Warburg effect."
A novel hydrogel dressing was developed recently to combat both these undesirable characteristics and tested for its effects on diabetic-infected wound healing.
The anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties of black garlic (BG).
Cell death is fundamental to life and, thus, healthy aging. In the realm of cellular biology, ferroptosis (a form of programmed cell death) has emerged not only as a focal point of research for its potential in eliminating cancer cells, but also its role in a plethora of other diseases, including neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, eye diseases such as Retinitis pigmentosa and age-related macular degeneration, as well as ischemia, cardiovascular disease, liver disease, acute kidney injury and inflammation.
People with ischemic (clot-caused) stroke had better early recovery of cognitive function if treated with intravenous injections of a combination of biologically active components of ginkgo biloba during the first two weeks after the stroke, according to a preliminary study to be presented at the American Stroke Association's International Stroke Conference 2024.
Researchers found that feeding a high-fat diet (HFD) causes mitochondrial dysfunction and fragmentation in white adipocytes in mice.
A new research paper was published in Aging (listed by MEDLINE/PubMed as "Aging (Albany NY)" and "Aging-US" by Web of Science) Volume 16, Issue 1, entitled, "Systematic analysis of the prognostic value and immunological function of LTBR in human cancer."
How space travel, space radiation, and microgravity affect human reproductive functions.
Excessive alcohol intake is strongly associated with alcohol-associated liver disease (ALD) which accounts for 25% and 30% of deaths from cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Impairment of Ca2+ influx and Ca2+-mediated signaling in ALD suggests that Ca2+ channels are important in ALD pathological progression.
The repair of damage to genetic material (DNA) in the human body is carried out by highly efficient mechanisms that have not yet been fully researched.
The chemo-preventive potential of Mangiferin (MF) (mango).
The role of dietary microRNAs (miRNAs) in health and disease.
