Australian and Sri Lankan medical researchers have forged a new action plan to investigate the causes of a particular form of chronic kidney disease.
Scientists have reconstructed a fully functional epidermis, covering approximately 80% of the total body surface area, for a seven-year-old patient with a genetic skin disease called Junctional Epidermolysis Bullosa (JEB).
Research led by ANU has found that the proportion of 'staph' infections resistant to antibiotics has increased in Australia since 2000, with most cases now occurring in the community rather than in hospitals.
Global healthcare company MSD and the University of Queensland's commercialisation company, UniQuest, have partnered to develop a platform for new immuno-oncology therapies.
Melbourne researchers have produced a three-dimensional (3D) map of a molecular 'scaffold' called SgK223, known to play a critical role in the development and spread of aggressive breast, colon and pancreatic cancers.
A yeast protein that evolved from scratch can fold into a three-dimensional shape, contrary to the general understanding of young proteins, according to new research led by the University of Arizona.
We bet you never thought your mealtimes could affect the biological clock of your skin — or its ability to protect itself from the sun's rays.
Griffith University researchers have found that lead poisoning is a major risk factor for pre-eclampsia, a disease which kills over 75,000 women internationally each year and is responsible for 9% of all foetal deaths.
Researchers at Sanford Burnham Prebys have shown that alterations in alternative splicing may trigger cancer.
Deakin University and Chinese biotech company Suzhou GenePharma have partnered to develop a blood test that can detect fatal diseases like pancreatic or lung cancer.
Researchers have grown three-dimensional samples of mineralised bone from human mesenchymal stem cells without typical osteoinductive media.
Scientists may not be able to stop fair-skinned redheads from getting sunburnt but they are a step closer to reducing their likelihood of certain types of skin cancer. Researchers from Boston and Edinburgh have found that triggering skin pigmentation in the laboratory can prevent mice from developing melanoma.
An international team of researchers from Australia, the UK, Malaysia and India are developing a prototype vaccine to minimise the impact of Nipah virus (NiV) on the pig industry.
Queensland researchers are a step closer to developing new medicines for treating inflammatory diseases, including allergies such as rhinitis, itchy hives, asthma, eczema and dermatitis.
New Zealand researchers have discovered an unexpected role for a white blood cell called the natural killer (NK) cell — a critical cell for ridding the body of infection and cancer.
