Glioblastoma brain cancer cells that are more resistant to radiation therapy have higher levels of purines. Reducing the level of purines made the cancer cells more sensitive to radiation.
Activating p38gamma, a naturally protective enzyme in the brain, may help to prevent the development of Alzheimer’s disease symptoms. Researchers showed the naturally protective effects of p38gamma could be harnessed to improve memory in the later stag…
Researchers successfully applied a gene therapy platform to completely correct brain defects in a large animal model of a human genetic disease.
Children suffering from a form of autism called ADNP syndrome may benefit from an experimental drug designed to treat Alzheimer’s disease.
Glioblastoma brain cancer originates from a pool of stem cells that can be a significant distance away from where the tumor eventually forms.
Being vaccinated against influenza was associated with a 17% reduction in Alzheimer’s incidence. Pneumonia vaccinations given between the ages of 65 and 75, reduced Alzheimer’s risk by up to 40%.
Study identifies the TLR7 gene as an essential player in the immune response against coronavirus infection.
Study reveals mutations of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, may not be a random process, but instead, humans are mutating it as part of a defense mechanism to degrade the virus. The findings may help in the creation of a vaccine for coronavi…
Spinal cord injuries cause stem cells in the bone marrow to rapidly divide. Following the cell division, the stem cells become trapped in the bone marrow.
Infection of non-neuronal supporting cells in the nose and forebrain may be responsible for the olfactory problems associated with COVID-19. Findings suggest olfactory sensory neurons are not vulnerable to coronavirus infection as they do not express A…
