New biomarker for personalized treatments against cancer

18-Apr-2019

Cancer cells are characterised by the ability to evade apoptosis, a type of programmed cell death that allows the organism to remove damaged cells. Many studies devoted to new chemotherapy treatments aim to induce apoptosis and thus remove cancer cells or reduce the size of the tumour. Scientists ...

Printing nanoparticle shapes for medical applications

18-Apr-2019

Personal drug delivery or nano-robotic systems could be a key concept for future medical applications. In this context, scientists around David Ng (Department of Prof. Tanja Weil) of the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) have recently developed a technology to customize the shapes ...

Valence-bond revival in magnetism

Researchers bring to light fundamental behavior of intricate magnetic states–quantum spin liquids

18-Apr-2019

Magnets are prone to order. Their basic constituents, individual magnetic moments, tend to align at low temperatures, thus forming “frozen” magnetically ordered states. A minority of magnets break this trend and reveal peculiar characteristics that can be paralleled to a never-freezing (quantum) ...

First 3D heart using patient's biological materials printed

Engineered heart completely matches the immunological, cellular, biochemical and anatomical properties of the patient

17-Apr-2019

In a major medical breakthrough, Tel Aviv University researchers have "printed" the world's first 3D vascularised engineered heart using a patient's own cells and biological materials. Until now, scientists in regenerative medicine -- a field positioned at the crossroads of biology and technology ...

Precise Decoding of Breast Cancer Cells Creates New Option for Treatment

17-Apr-2019

Researchers at the University of Zurich and from IBM Research have investigated the varying composition of cancer and immune cells in over one hundred breast tumors. They've found that aggressive tumors are often dominated by a single type of tumor cell. If certain immune cells are present as ...

Graphene gives a tremendous boost to future terahertz cameras

17-Apr-2019

Detecting terahertz (THz) light is extremely useful for two main reasons: Firstly, THz technology is becoming a key element in applications regarding security (such as airport scanners), wireless data communication, and quality control, to mention just a few. However, current THz detectors have ...

How plants defend themselves

Plant immune system detects bacteria through small fatty acid molecules

16-Apr-2019

Like humans and animals, plants defend themselves against pathogens with the help of their immune system. But how do they activate their cellular defenses? Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have now discovered that receptors in plant cells identify bacteria through simple ...

Protein complex prevents toxic aggregation of proteins

16-Apr-2019

A protein complex within the cell has been found to play a key role in preventing the toxicity of proteins which build up amyloid plaques and can lead to neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease. Researchers from the Universities of Konstanz (Germany), Leeds (UK) ...

Genetic defects without consequences

mRNA of defective genes pushes compensation mechanism

15-Apr-2019

Many diseases are caused by genetic defects. However, their severity can vary among individual patients, so that even mild forms can occur. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research in Bad Nauheim have now decrypted a molecular mechanism responsible for this phenomenon. ...
