Basic cell health systems wear down in Huntington’s disease, novel analysis shows

Using an innovative computational approach to analyze vast brain cell gene expression datasets, researchers at MIT and Sorbonne Université have found that Huntington's disease may progress to advanced stages more because of a degradation of the cells' health maintenance systems...

‘Walking’ molecule superstructures could help create neurons for regenerative medicine

Imagine if surgeons could transplant healthy neurons into patients living with neurodegenerative diseases or brain and spinal cord injuries. And imagine if they could "grow" these neurons in the laboratory from a patient's own cells using a synthetic, highly bioactive...

‘I don’t recognize the person that I am’: COVID-19 long hauler hopes new clinic will provide treatment, answers

OTTAWA -- COVID-19 patients who experience symptoms months after infection are heading to “post COVID-19 clinics” for treatment and to hopefully discover why their illnessis prolonged. Violaine Cousineau, an English literature teacher in Montreal, is among the first people to...

Terahertz imaging of graphene paves the way to industrialization

X-ray scans revolutionised medical treatments by allowing us to see inside humans without surgery. Similarly, terahertz spectroscopy penetrates graphene films allowing scientists to make detailed maps of their electrical quality, without damaging or contaminating the material. The Graphene Flagship brought...

Mouse study shows bacteriophage therapy could fight drug-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae

Using viruses instead of antibiotics to tame troublesome drug-resistant bacteria is a promising strategy, known as bacteriophage or "phage therapy." Scientists at the National Institutes of Health have used two different bacteriophage viruses individually and then together to successfully treat...
