A Closer Look at T cells Reveals Big Differences in Mild vs. Severe COVID-19 Cases (Medicine)

New research highlights the enormous variability in how T cells respond to the deadly virus. A big question on people’s minds these days: how long does immunity to SARS-CoV-2 last following infection? Now a research team from La Jolla Institute for Immunology (LJI), The University of Liverpool and the University of Southampton has uncovered an … Continue reading A Closer Look at T cells Reveals Big Differences in Mild vs. Severe COVID-19 Cases (Medicine)

Tu Delft Researchers Designed Hybrid Energy System For Martian Habitats (Planetary Science / Engineering)

Roland Schmehl and student team designed a hybrid wind-solar energy system to power the construction and subsequent use of a subsurface Mars habitat. Their study recently appeared in Arxiv. Several space agencies are aiming to send the humans to Mars with the goal to establish a habitat. One of the main problems to overcome is … Continue reading Tu Delft Researchers Designed Hybrid Energy System For Martian Habitats (Planetary Science / Engineering)

Will Reduction in Tau Protein Protect Against Parkinson’s and Lewy Body Dementias? (Neuroscience)

New results suggest the answer is no, implying that the role of tau in the pathogenesis of Lewy body dementias is distinct from Alzheimer’s disease. Will a reduction in tau protein in brain neurons protect against Parkinson’s disease and Lewy body dementias?  A new study, published in the journal eNeuro, suggests the answer is no. If … Continue reading Will Reduction in Tau Protein Protect Against Parkinson’s and Lewy Body Dementias? (Neuroscience)

Toward The First Drug To Treat A Rare, Lethal Liver Cancer (Medicine)

New drugs to eliminate fibrolamellar tumors cells, pictured here, were identified using an expedited approach. Treatment options for a deadly liver cancer, fibrolamellar carcinoma, are severely lacking. Drugs that work on other liver cancers are not effective, and although progress has been made in identifying the specific genes involved in driving the growth of fibrolamellar … Continue reading Toward The First Drug To Treat A Rare, Lethal Liver Cancer (Medicine)

Study Examines the Effects Of COVID-19 on Human Kidney Cells (Medicine)

Highlights The virus that causes COVID-19 can infect and replicate in human kidney cells, but this does not typically lead to cell death. Kidney cells that already have features of injury may be more easily infected and develop additional injury. Researchers have studied human kidney cells in the lab to examine the effects of COVID-19 … Continue reading Study Examines the Effects Of COVID-19 on Human Kidney Cells (Medicine)

Analysis Reveals How Kidney Cancer Develops and Responds to Treatment (Medicine)

Findings offer clues to why some types of renal cell carcinoma respond to immunotherapy while others do not Not all kidney cancers behave the same, with wildly different responses to immunotherapy or other treatments – and wildly different outcomes for patients as a result. By sequencing the RNA of individual cells within multiple benign and … Continue reading Analysis Reveals How Kidney Cancer Develops and Responds to Treatment (Medicine)
