Hypoxia-induced mRNA in maternal blood is associated with fetal hypoxic status in utero, suggesting that a simple blood test could be used to determine fetal hypoxia and enable clinicians to intervene earlier in critical cases.
A novel nanocarrier system for curcumin, known for its anti-cancer properties, was developed to combat its low bioavailability. The highly soluble particles demonstrated prolonged and effective biological activity against HepG2 in vitro.
Two new models are proposed for studying genetic variants, environment and DNA methylation interactions in asthma development.
Comparing honeybee populations from Syria, Lebanon and Iraq with reference populations from the Old World reveals strong support for a fifth major genetic lineage in this species, and suggests an independent African origin for this group.
There have been many false beliefs around allergen immunotherapy (AIT) for allergic rhinitis (AR) treatment; William Frankland and colleagues refute these misconceptions, and discuss the evidence that shows AIT is safe and effective for the treatment of AR.
A new vaccine for Rift Valley Fever, a disease of livestock and humans, was engineered from chimpanzee adenovirus and protected mice from infection, paving the way for clinical trials.
PGC1-alpha was shown to be responsible for the regulation of glutamine metabolism in HER2+ breast cancer cells, providing important information about altered metabolism in this disease.
