In a new study, Sergio Baranzini et al. describe a computational model that can predict a patient's therapeutic response to interferon based on their gene expression profiles. Immune cells typically secrete interferons to fen...

Stem Cell Research Shows Potential for Replacing Tissue Damaged in Heart Attacks

... at ways to use ES cells, the research team had to consider the fact that the cells are “pluripotent,?meaning that they can develop into any of the 210 different cell types in the human body ?including tumors. That meant they had to determine how ES cells could be forced to become one single homogenous group ...
