Brain, muscle cells found lurking in kidney organoids grown in lab

Scientists hoping to develop better treatments for kidney disease have turned their attention to growing clusters of kidney cells in the lab. One day, so-called organoids—grown from human stem cells—may help repair damaged kidneys in people or be used to test drugs developed to fight kidney disease. But new research from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis has […]

Small populations of normal cells affect immunity in patients with XLP1

Human SH2D1A mutations resulting in X-linked lymphoproliferative syndrome type 1 (XLP1) are associated with a unique susceptibility to the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), which may lead to fatal infectious mononucleosis (FIM). Many studies have attempted to elucidate an appropriate treatment for XLP1 that does not involve hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT); clinical evidence supporting such treatments has been minimal, until now.

Became known new way to destroy cancer

Scientists at the University of Otago (New Zealand) learned how the virus Seneca valley infects cancer cells and kills them. In the future this will create a new method of treatment of malignant tumors. About it reported in a press release on EurekAlert!. Experts have observed for infection of tumor cells by the virus via cryoelectronic of high-resolution microscopy in […]

The spread of cancerous cells determined with new model developed at YSPH

Researchers at the Yale School of Public Health have discovered a mathematical relationship that sheds new light on the rate at which cancer cells mutate and why some survive and rapidly multiply, yet others do not. The discovery by members of the laboratory of Jeffrey Townsend, Ph.D., the Elihu Professor of Biostatistics and of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, will allow […]

Tumours push blood vessels with 200 TIMES the force of usual cells

Is this how cancer spreads so easily? Tumours push through blood vessels with 200 TIMES the force of ordinary cells Cancerous cells have more receptors, which allow them to cluster together Blocking these receptors may help to prevent cancers spreading in the body Cancer spreads when parts of tumours break into the blood or lymph system   e-mail View comments It’s a […]
