Researchers Discover How Cancer Evades the Immune System

...hers studied the expression of these genes in five mouse tumour models for breast cancer, leukaemia, colon cancer, lung cancer and renal cell carcinoma. When they compared two of these immune signatures with corresponding human tumours thereafter, they found that the immune signatures of each of the human ...

Scientists Identify Antibodies That Block Human and Animal SARS Viruses

Liver Cancer More Prevalent in Males

...Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine have determined in mouse studies. Their discovery that female mice produce far less of the protein called interleukin-6 (IL-6) in response to liver injury than males do, and that production of this protein is suppressed by estrogen, may point the way to therapies to redu...

Parkinsons Disease Mechanism Identified

...he researchers studied the mechanism of PD using a mouse model of the disease, in which a mitochondria-affecting toxin called MPTP is used to produce Parkinsons-like brain pathology. In earlier studies, they had found that MPTP activates protein-snipping enzymes called calpains in mitochondria. They also...
