Solving sweat-related concerns that occur in daily life, such as hyperhidrosis and sweat smell, can improve people's quality of life. Now, researchers from Osaka University, in collaboration with Mandom Corporation, have succeeded in generating immortalized human eccrine sweat gland myoepithelial cells (iEM cells). Their findings could help develop next-generation antiperspirants and promote research on sweat dysfunction and sweat gland regeneration.
Leukemia frequently originates from the so-called leukemic stem cell, which resides in a tumor promoting and protecting niche within the bone marrow. Plasma taken from the blood of people who have recovered from COVID-19 and given to people sick with the disease does not reduce their chances of getting seriously ill or dying, new research has found. The findings are from one of the first clinical trials to report the effects of convalescent plasma, which has been given emergency approval in countries including India and the United States.
Leukemia frequently originates from the so-called leukemic stem cell, which resides in a tumor promoting and protecting niche within the bone marrow. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry in Martinsried, Germany, have found a new way to make these cells vulnerable by specifically dislodging these cells from their niches.
The first modern center of medical training in Iran was founded in 1851. It was a part of the Institute of Dar-ol-Fonoon (Polytechnic).
Rutgers researchers have discovered human gene markers that work together to cause metastatic prostate cancer—cancer that spreads beyond the prostate.
World CRISPR Day brings together the entire genome engineering community to discuss how we can safely enable discovery, therapeutics, and practical applications.
