Research establishes a timeline of obesity

Research establishes a timeline of obesity
Over the past decade, when investigating the factors associated with the growing epidemic of obesity in the world, scientists have identified two events that greatly contribute to weight gain. One of them is the alteration in the profile of bacteria that make up the intestinal flora. Studies published from 2005 to 2007 showed that obese people generally present a set of microorganisms that stimulate the absorption of nutrients from food.

TranslaTUM: Technology meets Medicine

TranslaTUM: Technology meets Medicine
They have different scientific backgrounds and specialist research fields but are pursuing a common goal: Leading researchers from the worlds of medicine, engineering and the natural sciences will be working under the umbrella of the new Central Institute for Translational Cancer Research (TranslaTUM) of the Technical University of Munich on cutting-edge methods in diagnostics and treatment for cancer patients. The interdisciplinary research building was opened on Thursday, September 14, 2017.

Cell culture system offers cancer breakthrough

Cell culture system offers cancer breakthrough
A new cell culture system that provides a tool for preclinical cancer drug development and screening has been developed by researchers in the USA. The team, led by scientists from Princeton University, New Jersey, created a microfluidic cell culture device that allows the direct, real-time observation of the development of drug resistance in cancer cells. They report their results in the journal Convergent Science Physical Oncology.

How Alzheimer’s disease affects the brain at different ages

How Alzheimer’s disease affects the brain at different ages
Alzheimer’s disease can lead to several widely divergent symptoms and, so far, its various expressions have mainly been observed through the behaviour and actions of patients. Researchers at Lund University in Sweden have now produced images showing the changes in the brain associated with these symptoms – a development which increases knowledge and could facilitate future diagnostics and treatment.

Pinpointing the origins of autism

Pinpointing the origins of autism
The origins of autism remain mysterious. What areas of the brain are involved, and when do the first signs appear? New findings published in Biological Psychiatry brings us closer to understanding the pathology of autism, and the point at which it begins to take shape in the human brain. Such knowledge will allow earlier interventions in the future and better outcomes for autistic children.

Use of antibiotics in lab grown cells could distort tests

Use of antibiotics in lab grown cells could distort tests
When growing cells in the lab, researchers routinely add antibiotics to prevent contamination. But a new study by UC San Francisco researchers raises a red flag against this standard practice, finding that it can induce unintentional genetic changes in the cells and distort test results. These changes may be especially concerning in pharmacogenomics experiments looking at how human cells respond to drugs, an important part of precision medicine.

Magnetic fields destroy bacteria on artificial joints

Magnetic fields destroy bacteria on artificial joints
A short exposure to an alternating magnetic field might someday replace multiple surgeries and weeks of IV antibiotics as treatment for stubborn infections on artificial joints, new research suggests. Researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have shown that high-frequency alternating magnetic fields – the same principle used in induction cooktops – can be used to destroy bacteria that are encased in a slimy 'biofilm' growing on a metal surface.

Research unveils why patients with shingles feel pain

Research unveils why patients with shingles feel pain
  Chickenpox is a typical childhood illness. In most cases, it is benign, and the symptoms disappear within ten days. However, its causative agent, Varicella zoster virus (VZV), remains in the organism forever. In some cases, the virus can be reactivated years later, causing a different disease known as herpes zoster, or shingles.

Ultrafast method determines antibiotic resistance

Ultrafast method determines antibiotic resistance
Researchers at Uppsala University have developed a new method for very rapidly determining whether infection-causing bacteria are resistant or susceptible to antibiotics. The findings have now been published in the US journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). Antibiotic resistance is a growing medical problem that threatens human health globally. One important contributory factor in the development of resistance is the incorrect use of antibiotics for treatment.
