A team of researchers has identified a previously unknown function of histones, which allows for an improved understanding of how cells protect and repair DNA damages. This breakthrough may eventually result in better treatments for diseases such as cancer.
A new study now shows that some symptoms of depression play a much bigger role than others, and that the symptoms listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) may not be the most useful ones.
New research says that blackouts and near drowning events may signal an increased risk of sudden death. Such events indicate long QT syndrome (LQTS), a genetic heart condition that can be undetected or misdiagnosed as epilepsy or a panic attack.
A new study has found that inhibiting a family of enzymes inside hair follicles restores hair growth. In experiments with mouse and human hair follicles, researchers found Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitors promote rapid hair growth when applied to the skin.
New research has shed light on the genetic changes that occur in people as they age. The study found 1,450 genes that are linked to aging that may be used to predict if a person will likely suffer age-related diseases.
