New findings advance RAS inhibitors for use in fighting more cancers

New findings by UT Southwestern researchers promote understanding of how one of the most commonly mutated genetic drivers of cancer passes signals that cause the disease. The study, published in Nature Structural & Molecular...

Nerves may be key to blocking abnormal bone growth in tissue

Blocking a molecule that draws sensory nerves into musculoskeletal injuries prevents heterotopic ossification (HO), a process in which bone abnormally grows in soft tissue during healing, UT Southwestern researchers reported in a study. The...

Researchers design microfluidic device to understand how air pollution affects lungs

University of Toronto researchers in biomedical engineering have developed a new technology that combines a microfluidic device with a novel airflow system to mimic lung airways. The technology enables scientists and engineers to perform...

New screening method targets hydrogen peroxide in the search for new cancer therapeutics

MIT chemical engineers have developed a way of swiftly screening compounds to determine their therapeutic potential for certain kinds of cancers. With a genetically engineered sensor and high-throughput technology, their method probes for changes...

Researchers gain insight into how cells avoid assembly-line mistakes

Every cell is a master builder, able to craft useful and structurally complex molecules, time and again and with astonishingly few mistakes. Scientists are keen to replicate this feat to build their own molecular...

Blood metabolites associated with coffee consumption may affect kidney disease risk

Food and beverages may have important effects on kidney health, but the potential biological mechanisms involved are often unclear. New research in CJASN identifies several metabolites in the blood whose levels are altered by...

Economic impact of obesity set to reach average 3.6 per cent of GDP by 2060

The economic impact of obesity is set to make up 3.6%, on average, of a nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP)—the total value of annual goods and services—by 2060, if current trends continue, finds an...
