Two impairments of old age — frailty and immunity decline — can be halted and even partially reversed using a novel cell-based therapeutic approach.
A genetic dysfunction in specific brain cells of the cingulate cortex area strongly influences head pain occurrence.
The Phase 1 trial will provide initial safety and immune response data on the vaccine and is being conducted at the Royal Adelaide Hospital.
Scientists have shown in laboratory studies that aqueous and ethanolic extracts of specially bred sweet wormwood plants are active against SARS-Cov-2.
Eosinophils, a type of immune cell, could be important in activating a type of fat that burns energy instead of storing it.
Intranasal immunisation with the new vaccine not only induced excellent systemic responses but also strong local immune responses.
Researchers have highlighted the lasting positive effect of a reward on the ability of individuals to retain a variety of information.
Serotonin, a chemical known for producing feelings of wellbeing and happiness, can reduce the ability of some intestinal pathogens to cause deadly infections.
Scientists have identified a previously unknown immune cell that plays a crucial role presenting antigens to other immune cells during respiratory virus infections.

Australian clinical research organisation Nucleus Network has begun dosing participants in the first human trial for a COVID-19 vaccine in the Southern Hemisphere.
Cancer is often the result of DNA mutations or problems with how cells divide, which can lead to cells 'forgetting' what type of cell they are or how to function properly.
New research has revealed that cell movement actually increases when there are more cells around, contrary to what scientists have always believed.
