2014-06-20 11:20:38

Gerard LeBlond for redorbit.com - Your Universe Online According to an international team of researchers, a parasitic worm found in pigs could modify the human immune system to aid in the treatment of autoimmune diseases including inflammatory bowel disease and multiple sclerosis. The team consisted of 11 institutions from six different countries that presented the whole-genome sequence of the worm and published the study online in Nature Genetics. The human form of the whipworm infects...

Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute Parasitic worm genome and biology provides a solid basis for the development of new interventions Researchers have deduced essential biological and genetic information from the genome sequence of the whipworm, an intestinal parasitic worm that infects hundreds of millions of people in developing countries. This information acts as the foundation for the development of new strategies and treatments against this debilitating parasite. The whipworm is...

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers from the Universities of Cambridge and Leicester have uncovered more evidence about the life and death of Richard III. Richard III, the famed “king under the car park,” was discovered buried in an untidy grave by researchers a year ago and was exhumed from his unmarked burial site this past July during an extensive excavation of the Grey Friars church site. A new study of his remains has revealed that the last...
