The study provides a key link between the social environment and healthy brains

As people age, maintaining a positive and predictable social environment becomes increasingly important. For example, maintaining close relationships with friends and family has been identified as one of the key ingredients for healthy aging. While some declines in health, mind, and body are inevitable, studies show that maintaining a positive social environment can help prevent … Read more

Scientists provide indicators of organ development

Organs in the human body have complex networks of fluid-filled tubes and loops. They come in different forms and their three-dimensional structures are related differently to each other, depending on the organ. During embryonic development, organs develop their shape and tissue architecture from a simple group of cells. Due to a lack of concepts and … Read more

New AI blood test technology detects more than 80% of liver cancers

New artificial intelligence blood testing technology developed and used by Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center researchers to successfully detect lung cancer in a 2021 study has already detected more than 80% of liver cancers in a new study of 724 people. The blood test, called DELFI (DNA Evaluation of Fragments for Early Interception), detects fragmentation … Read more

What is the role of macrophage origin, function and heterogeneity in health and disease?

In a recent study published in cell, the researchers explored the wealth of information available regarding the heterogeneity of tissue macrophages. They pursued a conceptual framework to better understand the origins and functions of different macrophages, while focusing on the interplay between macrophage differentiation under steady-state and disease-related signals, timing, and their contribution to homeostasis … Read more

Viral fitness and antigenic relationship between Omicron sublines

In a recent study published in bioRxiv* preprint server, researchers used mouse models and human airway cell cultures to examine the relative rates of viral replication and cross-neutralization against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) Omicron sublines. Study: Cross-neutralization and virulence of SARS-CoV-2 sublines Omicron. Image credit: FOTOGRIN/Shutterstock Background The SARS-CoV-2 Omicron sublineage BA.1 … Read more

Scientists create atlas of liver infection caused by Plasmodium parasites

Malaria is a devastating disease caused by plasmodium a parasite. After being bitten by an infected mosquito, the parasites travel to the liver and infect the liver cells. This phase of the infection is asymptomatic. Now a new study led by Maria M. Mota, group leader at the Instituto de Medicina Molecular João Lobo Antunes … Read more
