Oxidative Stress is a condition in which antioxidant levels are lower than normal. Antioxidant levels are usually measured in blood plasma.
A gene therapy protects eye cells in mice with a rare disorder that causes vision loss, especially when used in combination with other gene therapies, shows a study published today in eLife.
Researchers have compared vape e-liquid samples and their aerosols to combustible cigarette smoke using Toxys’ ToxTracker range of in-vitro assays.
As the name implies, induced pluripotent stem cells can become any type of cell in our body, and scientists have evidence that when they prompt them to become muscle progenitor cells they can help restore the sometimes debilitating muscle loss that happens with age.
A majority of the drugs work through the membranes surrounding the cells of the body.
According to a study, consumption of a high-fat diet could trigger a response in the heart, causing growth and resulting in a higher risk of heart attacks.
According to a new study, a gene associated with an exceptionally long-life span in human beings guards the brain stem cells against the adverse effects of stress.
Researchers have designed an improved version of a genetically encoded phototoxic synthesizer that helps regulate intracellular processes through light.
Researchers have found how a protein governs the behavior of proteins associated with the activity in mitochondria, which is impacted in Alzheimer's disease.
Oxidized organic aerosol is a major component of ambient particulate matter, substantially impacting climate, human health, and ecosystems.
A key way radiation therapy and chemotherapy work is by making highly lethal double-strand breaks in the DNA of cancer cells.
Blackcurrants have a beneficial effect on post-meal glucose response, and the required portion size is much smaller than previously thought, a new study from the University of Eastern Finland shows.
If there is a positive aspect in cancer’s random biology, it is that the same characteristics that promote the growth of cancer cells usually present opportunities for destroying them.
At present, cannabidiol has found considerable use not just in the world of cosmetics but also in nutrition and pharmaceutics due to its therapeutic potential.
A University of Massachusetts Amherst environmental health scientist has used an unprecedented objective approach to identify which molecular mechanisms in mammals are the most sensitive to chemical exposures.
Extracellular vesicles (EVs) -- nanometer sized messengers that travel between cells to deliver cues and cargo -- are promising tools for the next generation of therapies for everything from autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases to cancer and tissue injury.
Broiler chicken producers the world over are all too familiar with coccidiosis, a parasite-borne intestinal disease that stalls growth and winnows flocks.
In a recent study, researchers at Emory University found that long-term exposure to urban air pollution may have made COVID-19 more deadly.
New research released from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus proposes that Alzheimer's disease may be driven by the overactivation of fructose made in the brain.
A study conducted by researchers at São Paulo State University (UNESP) suggests that irisin, a hormone secreted from muscles in response to exercise, could have a therapeutic effect on COVID-19 patients.
Every time we eat, the glucose level in our body goes up. This spurs our pancreatic machinery into action and through intricate physiological mechanisms, appropriate amounts of insulin are produced, our blood glucose levels are controlled, and we remain healthy.
