Inflammation in type 2 diabetes: Study overturns previous notions
New research challenges the prevalent belief that it is glucose that drives chronic inflammation in obesity and obesity-related type 2 diabetes. (Medical News Today)

'Spontaneous chemistry' may drive Alzheimer's
A new study asks whether subtle changes to the chemistry of proteins might explain why they build up in the brains of people with Alzheimer's. (Medical News Today)

Brain study probes molecular origins of anxiety
By studying young monkeys, scientists have identified the first of what they believe to be many brain molecules with a causal role in anxiety. (Medical News Today)

Rejuvenating brain stem cells may hold key to future MS treatments
Scientists have found a way to rejuvenate brain stem cells in rats. The finding offers clues on how to restore lost brain function in diseases such as MS. (Medical News Today)

How might the keto diet help treat cancer?
Preclinical research in mice has examined the effect of ketogenic diet-induced glucose restriction on a certain type of cancer cell. (Medical News Today)

Pancreatic cancer cells spread by 'educating' the tumor environment
Why does pancreatic cancer spread? The answer may lie in a previously unknown set of molecules that help cancer cells shape the environment around tumors. (Medical News Today)

Could activating these immune cells protect against MS?
New research in mice suggests that stimulating a particular group of immune cells could counteract the autoimmune reaction in multiple sclerosis. (Medical News Today)

Protein discovery could lead to new hearing loss treatments
By identifying proteins that spur the birth of new hair cells in the cochlea, new research in mice paves the way to new treatments for hearing loss. (Medical News Today)

'New wave of Alzheimer's research' looks to the liver for clues
Specialists call for a more holistic approach to Alzheimer's research, taking in the brain's relationship with other organs, including the liver. (Medical News Today)

Cancer: These 4 genes help predict outcome
Using data from more than 10,000 people with cancer, research looks at mutations in the tumor protein p53 to better predict a person's outlook. (Medical News Today)

Can scientists find the formula for 'better aging?'
New research studies aging cells to find out how they change, and how this leads to further health decline. Its findings may help promote 'better aging.' (Medical News Today)

Fat cells may explain why melanoma becomes 'aggressive and violent'
Scientists find that fat cells transfer gene-altering proteins to melanoma cells, making them more aggressive. They also show a way to block this process. (Medical News Today)

Why orthopedic shoes may not really be good for our feet
New research into how calluses work for our feet and balance suggests that thick-soled shoes, such as orthopedic shoes, may do us more harm than good. (Medical News Today)

Ancient survival mechanism may contribute to obesity epidemic
(Medical News Today)

ALS: 'Unique' cells could open up new avenues for therapy
A new study has found 'never before reported' cells in the spines of people with ALS. The discovery may lead to a better understanding of the condition. (Medical News Today)

Could targeting this enzyme halt ovarian cancer?
Scientists have identified an enzyme that promotes cell proliferation in the most common and lethal ovarian cancer and could serve as a treatment target. (Medical News Today)

Are crickets and other creepy crawlies the new superfood?
Researchers now show that crickets and other insects pack a very high antioxidant content, which could make them top contenders as super-nutritious foods. (Medical News Today)

New drug relieves acute migraine in clinical trial
The results of a large phase III trial show that the novel drug rimegepant can relieve pain and other symptoms of acute migraine with minimal side effects. (Medical News Today)

Alzheimer's: Cell mechanism removes defective protein
Buildup of defective tau protein is a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease. Now, scientists have identified a molecule that helps clear it from brain cells. (Medical News Today)

Switching off this enzyme reversed prediabetes in mice
A new study shows that deactivating an enzyme that alters ceramides can prevent insulin resistance and fatty liver as well as reverse prediabetes in mice. (Medical News Today)

Could targeting this heart hormone help control blood pressure?
The heart releases a hormone that has a key role in blood pressure. Now, a study of rats shows that its function depends on a sugar molecule attachment. (Medical News Today)

Programming bacteria to fight cancer
Scientists have shown that programming bacteria to help the immune system fight cancer can shrink tumors and increase survival in mice. (Medical News Today)

Is fungal or animal protein better for building muscle?
A small new study suggests that fungus-derived protein present in some meat replacement products may be better for building muscles than animal protein. (Medical News Today)

Could this newly discovered protein help treat Parkinson's?
Researchers have identified a protein that could reduce toxic aggregations in the brain. Their finding could lead to new therapies for Parkinson's disease. (Medical News Today)

Gold nanoparticles promise safe cancer drugs, better vaccines
A new study suggests that targeting B cells with gold nanoparticles could be a safe way to improve vaccines and treatments for cancer and other diseases. (Medical News Today)
