As stubborn as they are common, urinary tract infections (UTIs) have attracted intense scrutiny, but much about them remains hidden. Scientists know that they begin with intracellular bacterial communities (IBCs), and that these communities, which grow inside the cells lining the bladder’s wall, burst free, unleashing an infectious cascade that eventually reaches the bladder’s deeper

Using advanced imaging technology, Mayo Clinic scientists have provided a better understanding of the BRCA1-BARD1 protein complex, which is often mutated in patients with breast or ovarian cancer. Their paper (“Mechanisms of BRCA1–BARD1 nucleosome recognition and ubiquitylation”), published in Nature, identifies aspects of how BRCA1-BARD1 functions, supporting future translational research, cancer prevention efforts and drug

Eli Lilly’s Loxo Oncology at Lilly research group will apply Kumquat Biosciences’ small molecule immuno-oncology (I/O) platform to discover, develop, and commercialize potential novel drugs against cancer, through a collaboration that could generate more than $2 billion for the San Diego biotech. The collaboration is intended to yield new small molecule drugs that stimulate tumor-specific immune

Researchers headed by a team at the Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, have demonstrated how treating obese mice with a cytokine called thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP) triggers significant abdominal fat and weight loss. The team’s studies found that, unexpectedly, the fat loss was not associated with decreased food intake or faster metabolism. Rather, administering

A rare childhood disorder that mimics inflammatory bowel disease termed “Deficiency in ELF4, X-linked,” or DEX for short, has been recently identified. Using genome sequencing, Yale researchers reported they have uncovered the underlying genetic cause of the disorder. Their work may help identify the roots of a host of other inflammatory and autoimmune disorders. The

Farnesol, an antimicrobial compound found in herbs, fruits, and fungi prevents and reverses brain damage linked to Parkinson’s disease (PD), an international team led by scientists at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine claims, based on mouse studies. Tremors, muscle rigidity, confusion, and dementia—the hallmarks of PD—are caused by the loss of neurons that secrete

A meta-analysis of nearly 200,000 men has revealed 22 new genetic locations that could be susceptible to inherited testicular germ cell tumors (TGCT). The findings increase by 40% the number of regions known to be associated with this type of cancer. The multi-institutional meta-analysis was conducted by researchers from the international TEsticular CAncer Consortium (TECAC),

The mesencephalic locomotor region, which is part of the midbrain, is involved in regulating walking and other forms of locomotion in many animal species. But the function of neurons in this area of the brain remains controversial. Researchers led by Silvia Arber, PhD, a professor and group leader at the FMI and the Biozentrum of
