Researchers at Linköping University are now launching a plan to effectively treat psoriasis.
Scientists have discovered a new way to target cancer through manipulating a master switch responsible for cancer cell growth. Cancer cells can grow and multiply faster by creating their own blood vessels.
Researchers have developed a bandage that stimulates and directs blood vessel growth on the surface of a wound.
Scientists at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine have identified a cellular protein that plays a central role in the formation of new blood vessels.
A honey bee becomes a royal queen or a common worker as a result of the food she receives as a larva. While it has been well established that royal jelly is the diet that makes bees queens, the molecular path from food to queen is still in dispute.
As a person ages, the ability of their beta cells to divide and make new beta cells declines.
Ever since scientists first began growing human cells in lab dishes in 1952, they have focused on improving the chemical soup that feeds the cells and helps regulate their growth.
In a new study published in the August 16th issue of Developmental Cell, researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center identified a molecular mechanism that guarantees that new blood vessels form in the right place and with the proper abundance.
Tissue deprived of oxygen (ischemia) is a serious health condition that can lead to damaged heart tissue following a heart attack and, in the case of peripheral arterial disease in limbs, amputation, particularly in diabetic patients.
