Research has found that experimental drug, laquinimod, could potentially reduce the progression and may even prevent the development of multiple sclerosis. (Medical News Today)

Scavenger cells repair muscle fibers
Everybody knows the burning sensation in the legs when climbing down a steep slope for a long time. It is caused by microruptures in the cell membrane of our muscle fibers. (Medical News Today)

Alzheimer's protein changes shape to enter brain cells
A new study finds that amyloid beta - a protein involved in Alzheimer's disease - changes into a long, flat sheet before it enters brain cells. (Medical News Today)

Genes essential to life are enriched for human disease genes, large-scale mouse phenotyping study shows
Roughly a third of all genes in the mammalian genome are essential for life. (Medical News Today)

Asthma diagnosis from saliva test looks promising
Metabolic profiling of saliva using mass spectrometry has potential as a test for presence and severity of asthma, new study suggests. (Medical News Today)

"Moneyball" approach may help predict new drug toxicity in humans
