Health News - Biology/Biochemistry

A new blood test could help diagnose Alzheimer's
New research focuses on an accurate blood test for Alzheimer's disease. If scientists replicate the study's promising results, it may be a breakthrough. (Medical News Today)

Infections and cancer: The link could be stronger than we think
Study reveals a common cellular mechanism through which bacterial infection could promote cancer and increase resistance to anticancer drugs. (Medical News Today)

Honeybees may hold the secret to stem cell youth
The royal jelly that honeybees make to produce new queen bees seems to contain a secret ingredient that can keep stem cells 'young' and powerful. (Medical News Today)

What role do brain lipids play in Parkinson's disease?
Researchers studying the connection between lipids and toxic protein levels have uncovered a new potential therapeutic target for Parkinson's disease. (Medical News Today)

Researchers find new drug combo to challenge cancer
Researchers have discovered a new drug combination that may be able to boost cancer treatment while also preventing tumors from becoming therapy-resistant. (Medical News Today)

Type 1 diabetes: Drawing nearer to treatment that generates new insulin cells
Scientists have mapped the signals in the cellular environment that determine whether immature pancreatic cells will produce insulin. (Medical News Today)

Cancer cells' use of sugar holds the key to their destruction
Either reducing glucose supply or altering its metabolism in cancer cells could greatly improve effectiveness of virus-based treatments, a study reveals. (Medical News Today)

New strategy defeats cancer cells that evade chemotherapy
Scientists have found that making the cancer cells that survive chemotherapy more aggressive results in them being vulnerable to anti-inflammatories. (Medical News Today)

What kind of physical exercise can help you stay young?
Researchers look into which types of physical exercise are best at maintaining a person's cellular health, and thus at supporting healthy aging processes. (Medical News Today)

What is a normal body temperature range?
Normal body temperature is around 98.6°F, though this varies from person to person. In this article, we look at normal body temperature ranges in adults, children, and babies. (Medical News Today)

Breast cancer: Tumor growth fueled by bone marrow cells
New research uncovers a mechanism of tumor growth that may explain why some breast cancer tumors are more aggressive than others. (Medical News Today)

'DNA origami' tackles multidrug-resistant cancer cells
Scientists have developed a 'DNA nanoplatform' that carries anticancer drugs to targeted cancer cells and also prevents the cells from expelling the drug. (Medical News Today)

Implants 'made of your own cells' could end back pain
If the softer tissue discs that connect spinal vertebrae wear down, they can cause back and neck pain. New, bioengineered implants may solve this problem. (Medical News Today)

Stopping tumor cell movement halts cancer spread
Using tumor-like microenvironments, scientists stopped cancer cells from spreading, even after the cells had switched to a different way of moving. (Medical News Today)

Melanoma: Keeping these molecules apart could stop cancer spread
Recent research suggests that stopping the proteins LRP1 and tPA from interacting could form the basis of a treatment to halt metastasis in melanoma. (Medical News Today)

Natural antibiotic strips bacteria of their defenses
New research finds that an antibiotic derived from the spined soldier bug is effective against Escherichia coli and many other drug-resistant bacteria. (Medical News Today)

Interaction between immunity and gut bacteria influences aging
A disrupted immune system can upset gut bacteria in ways that can lead to cell damage and tissue changes associated with aging, study finds. (Medical News Today)

Pancreatic cancer cells are 'addicted' to key protein
New research on highly aggressive pancreatic cancers finds that a protein fuels cancer cells to the extent that they become 'addicted' to it. (Medical News Today)

New way to manipulate immune cells may treat cancer, autoimmune disease
Altering levels of a molecule that T cells need to grow could help the body fight cancer and lead to new treatments for autoimmune disease. (Medical News Today)

Autism: What is the link with zinc?
Past research noted a connection between zinc and autism, but a new study takes a deeper look and helps to further uncover the link. (Medical News Today)

New genetic culprit found for early progressive hair loss
New research has identified a key factor in the case of a progressive form of hair loss that starts in early childhood. The main culprit is a mutated gene. (Medical News Today)

Scientists confirm the role of 'molecular switch' in Parkinson's disease
Researchers establish that a cellular pathway that protects the brain against damage is disrupted in Parkinson's disease. Two enzymes play key roles. (Medical News Today)

Brain injury: New target may help eliminate inflammation
Researchers have identified a new cellular target that may, in the future, allow them to prevent the harmful effects of inflammation after brain injury. (Medical News Today)

How a key protein boosts memory, learning in the adult brain
New research reveals that a protein that helps make connections between neurons in the developing infant brain also strengthens them in the adult brain. (Medical News Today)

How does a protein's 'evil twin' promote cancer growth?
The mutant variant of a cancer-suppressing protein blocks its 'sibling's' activity, researchers have found. This interaction allows cancer to spread. (Medical News Today)
