Tumor-promoting mutation linked to suppression of anticancer immune response
Mutations that support the growth of tumor cells may also inhibit T cells, preventing the immune system from responding effectively to emerging cancers, according to Harvard Medical School researchers.
Nanoparticles enhance effect of brain stimulation on stroke recovery in rats
Combining nasally administered nanoparticles and noninvasive brain stimulation improves the recovery of ischemic stroke in rats, according to researchers from Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University and other universities in China.
Biotech licenses drug discovery platform from Harvard, Tufts to study complex CNS diseases

CRISPR edited rat embryos reveal cause of rare pediatric neurodegenerative disease
Using CRISPR gene editing technology on rat embryos, University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers have revealed the mutation that is responsible for progressive gait abnormalities and other symptoms in human infants and young children with a rare neurodegenerative disease.
New AI tool discovers mutations linking bladder cancer to tobacco smoking
Using a new artificial intelligence (AI) tool, University of California, San Diego researchers contend they have for the first time uncovered a pattern of DNA mutations that links bladder cancer to tobacco smoking.
NIH funds repurposing of breast cancer drug against glioblastoma
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is funding research into the repurposing of the breast cancer drug letrozole for use against the most deadly form of brain tumors.
MIT miniaturizes antenna for wireless operation inside living cells

Mutated mitochondrial microprotein linked to increased risk of Alzheimer’s
University of Southern California researchers have linked a mitochondrial DNA variant to increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease, pointing to a new way to tackle the hard-to-treat condition.
Combination therapy improves survival in mice with deadly glioblastoma
Combining an antidepressant and vascular endothelial growth factor inhibitor improves outcomes in mouse models of a hard-to-treat type of brain cancer, despite neither treatment being efficacious as a single agent, according to new research.
Boosting TERRA levels damages DNA of hard-to-kill cancer cells: study
Increasing levels of telomeric repeat-containing RNA (TERRA) damages the DNA of cancers with a particular form of replicative immortality and leads to cell death, according to Portuguese researchers who show that “anti-aging clocks” can be used to kill cancer cells.
