The internal anatomy of our lungs is surprisingly variable, and some of those variations are associated with a greater risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a new study led by researchers at McGill University and the Columbia University Irving Medical Center has found.
Scientists identified a gene mutation leading to high and low blood sugar levels. This discovery could aid the search for new methods for allowing the regeneration of beta cells.
The Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) may be hiding in small spaces on the surface of tonsils and tongues of people unaware of hosting the virus, according to a recent study by University of Rochester Medical Center researchers.
Multipotent stromal cells have long been a hot topic in medical research. Scientists have now found a way to specifically mark these stem cells. This makes it possible to analyze their distribution pattern and their function in living organisms.
A new approach to reducing bulging tummy fats has shown promise in laboratory trials. It combines a new way to deliver drugs, via a micro-needle patch, with drugs that are known to turn energy-storing white fat into energy-burning brown fat.

In recent weeks there has been extensive trial publications on different non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) management formats in medical journals. We provide our readers with a review of the most recent developments in NSCLC targeted therapy.
Researchers have discovered that the survival of cancer stem cells is dependent on the ‘Hedgehog signaling pathway’. Targeting this pathway had previously shown no effect on the growth of colorectal cancer. Now, scientists have demonstrated that using different drugs to target a specific aspect of the pathway may yield better treatment outcomes for patients.
Researchers have been able to show that people who grew up in the former western states of Germany have higher levels of narcissism than those whose socialization took place in the former eastern states.
