Study shows direct link between circadian clock disruption and lipid changes in diabetics

Study shows direct link between circadian clock disruption and lipid changes in diabetics

The team from Geneva, Switzerland shows that disruption of lipid temporal profiles in type 2 diabetes stiffens the membrane of pancreatic endocrine cells, which could alter their function. Like all living things, human physiological processes are affected by circadian rhythms. Disruption of our internal clocks due to increasingly unbalanced lifestyles is directly related to the …

Integrating recent advances in multi-omic tumor profiling into precision cancer treatment

Integrating recent advances in multi-omic tumor profiling into precision cancer treatment

Tumors have significant differences depending on the person affected, even if they are the same cancer, such as breast cancer. Therefore, precision oncology focuses on the specific genetic characteristics of the tumor and incorporates them into the treatment. In this way, existing therapies can be “tailored” to avoid side effects and save money on expensive …

Antibody profiles of intrinsic viral proteins predict severe COVID-19 results

Antibody profiles of intrinsic viral proteins predict severe COVID-19 results

Most research on SARS-CoV-2 immunity and COVID-19 vaccine development has focused on antibody responses to spike protein and other viral surface proteins. But antibodies that recognize the virus’s intrinsic proteins may also be important for immunity and disease outcomes, according to a new study by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh, the Georgia Institute of …

The new soft implantable probe can monitor fluctuations in chemicals in the brain

The new string-like implant can monitor fluctuations in chemicals in the brain, as a fitness tracker for the brain. An imbalance in brain chemistry is the basis of many neurological diseases. These same brain chemicals also play a role in gut health. So Stanford researchers have invented the “NeuroString” – a soft implantable probe that …
