PORTO ALEGRE (BR), February 2020 — Medulloblastoma, the most common brain cancer in children, may arise from biological abnormalities in neural stem cells or neuronal precursors during embryonic development.
RIO DE JANEIRO (BR), February 2020 — Astrocytes are neural cells with many important functions in the nervous system. The inflammation of these cells occurs in brain infections and neurodegenerative disorders, a process called astrogliosis.
NUTLEY, NJ (US), February 2020 — Reversing runaway inflammation in the bone marrow could lead to major breakthroughs in treatments for some blood cancers, according to a new publication by scientists at Hackensack Meridian Health's Center for Discovery and Innovation (CDI).
UTRECHT (NL), February 2020 — Researchers from the Hubrecht Institute and the Max Planck Institute have revealed how an essential protein helps to activate genomic DNA during the conversion of regular adult human cells into stem cells.
STANFORD, CA (US), February 2020 — Every cell in our body has a computer-like control system that sends biological signals through thousands of circuits to monitor the cell's needs and regulate its responses.
KOBE (JP), February 2020 — Researchers at Kobe University's Graduate School of Medicine have developed the world's first congenital pituitary hypoplasia (CPH) model using patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs).
NEW ROCHELLE, NY (US), February 2020 — Two distinct approaches are predominantly used to recapitulate physiologically relevant in vitro human organ models.
COLLEGE STATION, TX (US), February 2020 — Baby diapers, contact lenses and gelatin dessert. While seemingly unrelated, these items have one thing in common — they’re made of highly absorbent substances called hydrogels that have versatile applications.
YORK (UK), February 2020 — New research has deciphered how rogue communications in blood stem cells can cause leukemia. The discovery could pave the way for new, targeted medical treatments that block this process.
