Molecular, genetic mechanisms of microglia predispose individuals to Alzheimer's: study
Mount Sinai researchers contend they have achieved an “unprecedented” understanding of the genetic and molecular mechanisms in human microglia, immune cells that reside in the brain, providing insights into how they contribute to the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Read More
Link between genes, mitochondrial DNA reveals way to tackle cardiovascular disease
The discovery of a link between mitochondria, inflammation, and a pair of genes that help regulate blood cell growth has revealed a potential new target for atherosclerosis therapies. Read More
Technology restores cell, organ function in pigs an hour after their deaths
Yale University scientists were able to restore blood circulation and other cellular functions in pigs a full hour after their deaths from cardiac arrest by using technology that delivers a specially designed cell-protective fluid to organs and tissues, according to a paper published August 3 in the journal Nature.
