Washington [US], September 5 (ANI): A recent study by the North Carolina State University showed how a single mechanism can trigger different behaviours from the same gene -- and has applications in the biotechnology sector.
London [UK], September 5 (ANI): A new study has found that the rise and fall of Earth's land surface over the last three million years shaped the evolution of birds and mammals, with new species evolving at higher rates where the land has risen most.
Washington [US], September 4 (ANI): The results of a promising study by scientists at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill suggest that contraceptives based on antibodies may offer women a non-hormonal option to prevent pregnancy.
Washington [US], September 4 (ANI): Findings of a recent study suggests that humans should be able to safely travel to and from Mars, provided that the spacecraft has sufficient shielding and the round trip is shorter than approximately four years.
Washington [US], September 4 (ANI): In an effort to understand how psychiatric disorders influence the brain's decision-making processes, scientists at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai analysed the data from a previous study of non-human primates.
Stockholm [Sweden], September 4 (ANI): A study at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden has found that screening for atrial fibrillation in 75- and 76-year-olds could reduce the risk of stroke, severe bleeding, and death.
Washington [US], September 4 (ANI): Epilepsy, which is a relatively common condition and affecting approximately 1 per cent of individuals worldwide, is often inherited and misdiagnosed. Recent research has shown that sufferers have elevated polygenic risk scores (PRSs) for the condition. This could lead help in its accurate diagnosis.
Tsukuba [Japan], September 4 (ANI): Researchers led by a team from the University of Tsukuba have found new evidence of brain refreshing that takes place during a specific phase of sleep: rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, which is when you tend to dream a lot.
Washington [US], September 3 (ANI): In a new study by Yale Cancer Center, researchers show stem-like T cells within certain lymph nodes could be natural cancer fighters. Targeting these T cells, which are a type of white blood cells, with immunotherapy drugs could increase the number of cancer patients that respond to treatment.
Washington [US], September 3 (ANI): Researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have genetically engineered cells that, when implanted in mice, will deliver a biologic drug in response to inflammation. The goal of the research was to develop rheumatoid arthritis therapies with minimal side effects.
London [UK], September 2 (ANI): Indigenous Peoples and local communities provide the best long-term outcomes for conservation, according to new research from the University of East Anglia (UEA) and partners in France.
Washington [US], September 2 (ANI): A new research from North Carolina State University has demonstrated that genes are capable of identifying and responding to coded information in light signals, as well as filtering out some signals entirely.
Washington [US], September 1 (ANI): By temporarily suspending retinal activity in the non-amblyopic eye of animal models, neuroscientists at The Picower Institute for Learning and Memory restrengthened the visual response in the amblyopic eye, even at ages after the critical period when patch therapy fails.
Washington [US], September 1 (ANI): A new study has predicted that because of rising temperatures, extreme sea levels along coastlines the world over will become 100 times more frequent by the end of the century in about half of the 7,283 locations studied.
Washington [US], August 31 (ANI): The findings of new research suggested an effective way to kill bacteria and prevent its drug resistance. This was done by sequential treatment using antibiotics that are similar but swapped around frequently.
Budapest [Hungary], August 30 (ANI): According to the findings of new research, recently when researchers measured an Alzheimer's disease-associated peptide (Ab42) in companion dog brains they found that higher abundance is associated with increased cognitive decline.
Washington [US], August 30 (ANI): Scientists at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are using the precision targeting of monoclonal antibodies for a new type of female non-hormonal contraception.
Washington [US], August 30 (ANI): Space scientists and researchers have found that humans should be able to safely travel to and from Mars, provided that the spacecraft has sufficient shielding and the round trip is shorter than approximately four years.
