Microgravity Induces Irreversible Damage to Bone Strength and Density, Says New Study

Added: 04.07.2022 15:09 | 29 views | 0 comments

Scientists from the University of Calgary and elsewhere have followed 17 International Space Station astronauts before and after spaceflight over the last seven years to understand whether bone recovers after ‘long-duration’ spaceflight. Their results show that while bone partially recovers after the flight, sustained losses represent at least a decade of normal age-related bone loss, [...]

Cholesterol metabolite induces production of cancer-promoting vesicles

Scientists find gene mutation linked to exfoliation syndrome, most common cause of glaucoma

Added: 03.07.2022 19:20 | 3 views | 0 comments

A team of researchers have identified a genetic mutation associated with exfoliation syndrome, characterized by abnormal protein material accumulating in the front of the eye. It is the most common cause of glaucoma, and a major cause of irreversible blindness. The findings could lead to further research on the causes of the systemic disorder and potential cures.

Scientists use lipid nanoparticles to precisely target gene editing to the liver

Added: 03.07.2022 19:20 | 3 views | 0 comments

Scientists developed a highly efficient, targeted method for delivering gene editing machinery to specific tissues and organs, demonstrating the treatment of high cholesterol by targeting genes in the liver of mice, reducing cholesterol for over 3 months (and potentially more) with one treatment.

Cholesterol starvation kills lymphoma cells

Added: 03.07.2022 19:20 | 2 views | 0 comments

Scientists have developed a novel therapy to trick cancer cells into gobbling up what they think is their favorite food - cholesterol -- which actually triggers their destruction. What appears to them as a cholesterol-loaded particle is actually a synthetic nanoparticle that binds to the cancer cells and starves them to death. The study was in lymphoma cells but could be effective in ovarian and kidney cancer.
