  • Clusterin Suppresses Prostate Cancer in Mice
    A molecule that keeps prostate cancer at bay in mice is reported online.
  • Regulating Stem Cell Treatments
    Patients with incurable diseases are increasingly travelling thousands of miles for expensive, but risky and unproven stem-cell procedures.
  • Regaining Running in Paralyzed Rats
    A complex combination of drugs, electrical stimulation and regular exercise can enable paralyzed rats to walk and even run on a treadmill.
  • While You Were Sleeping
    Patients in vegetative and minimally conscious states still appear capable of acquiring certain forms of learning.
  • Lung Cancer in a Breath
    A sensor made up of gold nanoparticles can distinguish the breath of lung-cancer patients from healthy individuals in a high-humidity atmosphere.
  • Silence, Please!
    A new formulation of magnetic nanoparticles used to deliver nucleic acids that slow tumour progression in mice is reported.
  • Preserving Fertility during Cancer Treatment
    A mechanism that accounts for the negative effects of chemotherapy on female fertility, and a potential way to prevent it with a well known drug, is reported.
  • Losing Weight without Too Much Energy
    A pathway for how insulin signaling in the mouse hypothamalus -- a region of the brain known to control food intake -- is involved in obesity is presented.
  • Driving Autoreactive Cells to Distraction
    How potentially autoreactive T cells are prevented from being 'switched on' is reported in a paper published online.
  • Variants in Prostate Cancer
    New genetic variants that are associated with increased risk of prostate cancer have been identified in four studies published online.
  • Direct RNA Sequencing
    A new technique that enables researchers to sequence RNA directly should boost our understanding of human biology and disease.
  • Ancient Roots for India's Rich Diversity
    Current distinctions among groups within the Indian subcontinent are ancient, and strong inbreeding must have shaped marriage patterns in India for thousands of years.
