Apoptosis is programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.
Researchers evaluated the comparative pathogenicity of SARS-CoV-2 Omicron sub-variants BA.1, BA.2, and BA.5, in vitro and in vivo.
We are increasingly being exposed to endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) that interfere with the normal functioning of our hormones. Bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates, which are widely used in consumer products including plastics, aluminum cans, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics, are well-known EDCs.
Researchers discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the urogenital health of males.
The article, published in the journal Redox Biology by the group of Dr. Manel Esteller, shows that epigenetic changes prevent iron-associated programmed cell death in leukemia and show a new target for treatment with experimental drugs.
The main challenges associated with existing lung cancer drugs are severe side effects and drug resistance. There is hence a constant need to explore new molecules for improving the survival rate and quality of life of lung cancer patients.
Researchers summarize the toxic effects of nanoparticles on macrophages in vitro.
Researchers reviewed tannins as therapeutic agents against SARS-CoV-2.
A recent study discusses the effects of COVID-19 on the brain microvascular system.
Researchers assessed the association between natural killer cell dysfunction and COVID-19 disease severity.
Scientists modeling the cancer-suppressing p53 gene identify how the 20 different molecules unique to elephants get activated for increased sensitivity and response against carcinogenic conditions - with implications for cancer treatments in humans.
Aging and age-related disorders pose a complex challenge to the biomedical research community. To better understand how senescence is regulated is of high significance to promote healthy aging and treat age-associated disorders.
A new study discusses the impact of Escherichia coli (E. coli) infection on sperm parameters.
p53 is one of the most important proteins in cancer biology. Often referred to as a "guardian of the genome," p53 becomes activated in response to various cellular stressors like DNA damage.
A new study describes the immunologic parameters associated with protection from COVID-19.
In a new study, researchers observed the downregulation of ACE2 by SARS-CoV-2.
In living organisms cells divide and reproduce in two ways, mitosis and meiosis. Mitosis results in two identical daughter cells, whereas meiosis results in four sex cells.
COVID-19 was the third leading cause of death in the United States between March 2020 and October 2021, according to an analysis of national death certificate data by researchers at the National Cancer Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health. The study appears July 5 in JAMA Internal Medicine.
In a new study, scientists evaluated the effect of cannabis smoke condensate (CSC) on the gingival epithelial cells.
In a recent study published in the International Journal of Developmental Neuroscience, researchers assessed the role of melatonin in COVID-19-associated anosmia.
Researchers reviewed the neurologic manifestations associated with SARS-CoV-2.
