As part of the normal aging process, older adults frequently experience a decline in their olfactory function, resulting in a compromised or complete loss of sense of smell.

December 6, 2017

Head and neck tumors that contain cells undergoing a partial epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition – which transforms them from neatly organized blocks into irregular structures that extrude into the surrounding environment – are more likely to invade and spread to other parts of the body, accordi
