Novel coronavirus infects and replicates in salivary gland cells

A study conducted at the University of São Paulo suggests that tissues specializing in saliva production and secretion serve as reservoirs for SARS-CoV-2, magnifying its infectious potential. In Brazil, researchers…

The brain’s wiring technicians

Research identifies cadre of immune cells that sculpt inhibitory neurons to regulate brain wiring. From the bark of a puppy to the patter of rain against the window, our brains…

New test to make gene therapy safer

SAGA detects tumour potential of viral vectors for blood stem cells. When the causes of serious diseases are based on a defective gene, medicine relies on gene therapy. In this…

Researchers develop a new technique to treat middle ear infections

Middle ear infections, also known as otitis media, affect more than 80% of the children in the U.S. In a new study, researchers have designed a miniaturized 3D-printed device to…

Scientists discover key player in brain development, cell communication

Led by Katie Baldwin, Ph.D., research published in Neuron shows how the loss of the protein hepaCAM drives brain development dysfunction and plays an important role in neurological disorders. When…

Preventing the break-in of the toxoplasmosis parasite

Scientists from the universities of Geneva and Zurich and the PSI have identified the structure and functions of RON13, an enzyme of the toxoplasmosis parasite that is essential for the…

Glial cells help mitigate neurological damage in Huntington’s disease

The brain is not a passive recipient of injury or disease. Research has shown that when neurons die and disrupt the natural flow of information they maintain with other neurons,…

Gastrulation research reveals novel details about embryonic development

Scientists from Helmholtz Zentrum München revise the current textbook knowledge about gastrulation, the formation of the basic body plan during embryonic development. Their study in mice has implications for cell…

‘Multi-kingdom dialogue’ between internal, external microbiota

Implications for functions ranging from tissue repair to antimicrobial responses. WHAT: National Institutes of Health scientists and their collaborators have identified an internal communication network in mammals that may regulate…

Combination of heavy ion therapy and mRNA vaccine

TRON uses GSI/FAIR experiment period for cancer research… It is a strong alliance for research in the fight against cancer, opening the way for exciting new developments. On one hand,…
