Scientists have described how healthy plants appear to carry bacteria in their cells, opening a new avenue of research to improve future plant health and propagation efforts.
Scientists have developed a high-tech laser microscopy imaging model, which has given them a rare peek inside blood vessels to watch immune cell behaviour in real time.
Signals produced by nerves in response to stress can stop immune cells from moving, and thus from effectively fighting pathogens or tumours.
Darobactin, a newly discovered antibiotic compound, kills many antibiotic-resistant pathogens by exploiting a tiny weak spot on their surface.
The small molecule is known as a photo-oxygenation catalyst, and appears to treat Alzheimer's disease via a two-step process.
Increased sensitivity in a specific region of the brain contributes to the development of anxiety and depression in response to real-life stress.
Scientists have injected human stem cells into primate embryos and were able to grow chimeric embryos for up to 19 days.
Anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS), a synthetic version of testosterone, can have deleterious effects on the brain, causing it to age prematurely.
Infants born by caesarean section have a relatively meagre array of bacteria in the gut, but by the age of three to five years they are broadly in line with their peers.
Researchers from IAVI and Scripps Research have developed a novel vaccine approach to prevent HIV which has produced promising results in a phase 1 clinical trial.
A new study shows that the brain may function quite differently during hypnosis when compared to a normal waking state.
Tumours use a unique mechanism to switch on regulatory T cells to protect themselves from attack by the immune system — so what would happen if these T cells were shut down?
The breakthrough is expected to revolutionise research into the causes of early miscarriage, infertility and the study of early human development.
Scientists have identified a strain of E. coli bacteria that, when living in the guts of female mice, causes them to neglect their offspring.
Using two different viruses as vehicles, researchers administered specific tumour components into mice with cancer in order to stimulate their immune system to attack the tumour.
