Energy balance includes modulation of dopamine reward signaling
New research has for the first time compared images of the protein spikes that develop on the surface of cells exposed to the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine to the protein spike of the SARS-CoV-19 coronavirus. The images show that the spikes are highly similar to those of the virus and support the modified adenovirus used in the vaccine as a leading platform to combat COVID-19.
The improved therapy engineers the body’s immune response against HIV rather than waiting for the virus — or parts of the virus — to induce a response.
WEHI researchers have discovered a key differentiation process that provides an essential immune function in helping to control cancer and infectious diseases.
In an important step toward a fully implantable intracortical brain-computer interface system, BrainGate researchers demonstrated the first human use of a wireless transmitter capable of delivering high-bandwidth neural signals.
The new hydrogel is capable of regenerating damaged muscle very rapidly -specifically, in half the time it takes for it to regenerate naturally
New research led by scientists at Washington State University has found that a protein known as GBP5 appears to play a key role in suppressing inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis, a potentially debilitating disease in which the immune system mistakenly attacks the body’s own joint tissues.
