UCLA researchers pinpointed a new mechanism that potently activates T-cells, the group of white blood cells that play a major role in fighting infections.
Researchers at Georgetown University Medical Center have revealed how a mutation in a single gene is responsible for the inability of neurons to effectively pass along appetite suppressing signals from the body to the right place in the brain.
In trying to unlock the potential of retinoids to treat patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), scientists have found the antidepressant called tranylcypromine (TCP) may be the key.
A group of researchers from Mount Sinai School of Medicine have identified a key regulator protein that plays a role in kidney fibrosis.
A retinoid called all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA), which is a vitamin A-derivative, is already used successfully to treat a rare sub-type of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), however this drug has not been effective for the more common types of AMLs.
Researchers from Mount Sinai School of Medicine have identified a regulator protein that plays a crucial role in kidney fibrosis, a condition that leads to kidney failure.
In findings that may lead to clinical trials of a promising new drug for kidney disease, researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and their colleagues have identified a key molecular player and shown how a targeted experimental drug can reverse kidney damage in mouse models of diabetes, high blood pressure, genetic kidney disease, and other kidney injuries.
In a study published in Nature Medicine, Loyola researchers report on a promising new technique that potentially could turn immune system killer T cells into more effective weapons against infections and possibly cancer.
Researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) have for the first time isolated stem cells that are capable of producing what appear to be normal egg cells or oocytes from the ovaries of reproductive age women.
By reformulating the common cancer drug imatinib (Gleevec®), researchers have eliminated morphine tolerance in rats – an important step toward improving the effectiveness of chronic pain management in patients.
