3D structure of human uterine endometrium and adenomyosis tissue

New insights into the three-dimensional (3D) morphology of the human uterine endometrium could advance our understanding of the mechanisms of endometrial regeneration and fertilized egg implantation while clarifying the pathogenesis…

Toward a reliable oral treatment for sickle cell disease

For the millions of people worldwide who have sickle cell disease, there are only a few treatment options, which include risky bone marrow transplants, gene therapy or other treatments that…

Urolithin A shows effective against muscular dystrophy

Progression of Duchenne Muscle Dystrophy (DMD) can be delayed in mice by supplementing their diets with Urolithin A, according to new results reported today. The findings, published in Science Translational…

Surgical sutures inspired by human tendons

Next-generation sutures can deliver drugs, prevent infections, and monitor wounds. Sutures are used to close wounds and speed up the natural healing process, but they can also complicate matters by…

T cells recognize recent SARS-CoV-2 variants

NIAID research suggests protective effects of vaccination remain intact. WHAT: When variants of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) emerged in late 2020, concern arose that they might elude protective…

Experimental antibodies for Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s may cause harmful inflammation

Scientists find evidence that antibody-based treatments in clinical trials for neurodegenerative diseases may trigger an inflammatory response in human brain immune cells, eroding their positive effects. A team led by…

DNA damage ‘hot spots’ discovered within neurons

NIH labs collaborate to develop new methods for studying genome-wide DNA damage and repair. Researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have discovered specific regions within the DNA of…

Molecule attacks coronavirus in a novel way

Scientists at the University of Bonn and the caesar research center have isolated a molecule that might open new avenues in the fight against SARS coronavirus 2. The active ingredient…

Scientists find evidence that novel coronavirus infects the mouth’s cells

NIH-funded findings point to a role for saliva in SARS-CoV-2 transmission. An international team of scientists has found evidence that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, infects cells in the…

Parkinson’s gene may impair how new neurons are made throughout our lifetime

A pioneering study, published in Scientific Reports, found that the Parkinon’s gene PINK1 is important for the generation of dopamine-producing neurons throughout life, and is not just responsible for the…
