Investigational magnetic device shrinks glioblastoma in first-in-world human test

Houston Methodist Neurological Institute researchers from the department of neurosurgery shrunk a deadly glioblastoma tumor by more than a third using a helmet generating a noninvasive oscillating magnetic field that…

Researchers find immune component to rare neurodegenerative disease

Niemann-Pick disease type C, long thought to be tied to cholesterol metabolism, may eventually be treated with immune inhibitors. UT Southwestern researchers have identified an immune protein tied to the…

USC study shows male-female differences in immune cell function

A new USC study of a common, yet poorly understood type of white blood cell reveals the immune cell’s response to pathogens differs greatly by sex and by age. In…

Revealing the secrets of cell competition

As multicellular life relies on cell-cell interactions, it is not surprising that this is not always peaceful: cells with higher fitness eliminate cells with lower fitness through cell competition. Cell…

Biologists prove the anticancer potential of macrophages

RUDN University biologists discovered the way how macrophages (the cells of the “first line” immune response) respond to inflammation and identified how the immune response depends on their origin. It…

3D “assembloid” shows how SARS-CoV-2 infects brain cells

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine have produced a stem cell model that demonstrates a potential route of entry…

Tracking COVID-19 across Europe

According to the World Health Organization, a third wave of COVID infections is now all but inevitable in Europe. A COVID tracker developed by IIASA researcher Asjad Naqvi, aims to…

A common ancestor for cells involved in hearing and touch

USC Stem Cell scientists point to developmental and evolutionary similarities between sensory cells in the inner ear and the skin. The sensory cells in the inner ear and the touch…

Progress towards new treatments for tuberculosis

Boosting the body’s own disease-fighting immune pathway could provide answers in the desperate search for new treatments for tuberculosis. Tuberculosis still represents an enormous global disease burden and is one…

Nano-scale borate bioactive glass

Next generation material for skin-healing. Recently, with the help of a steady-state strong magnetic field experimental device, scientists constructed nano-scale borate bioactive glass (Nano-HCA@BG), which can effectively reduce the biological…
