Researchers have found that critical and severe COVID-19 patients have a highly impaired interferon response, which encourages a persistent blood viral load and heightened inflammatory response. This phenotype is now said to be associated with a poor prognosis.
Highly aggressive cancer cells spread throughout the body using an array of sophisticated mechanisms. Researchers have now discovered a new promoter of metastasis which lies in a core neural signalling pathway.
Researchers have established the cause of a worsening immune system with increasing age and demonstrated this can be halted using a novel therapeutic approach
High levels of radical oxygen species (ROS) have been linked to diseases including cancer, Parkinson’s disease and myocardial infarction. Research has shown that the other side of the spectrum, too many antioxidants, can be just as bad for the health of your heart.
Researchers have identified an unexpected role of pain neurones in eliciting the immune response within the gut.
