Breakthrough In The Understanding Of How Pancreatic Cancer Cells Ingest Nutrients Points To New Drug Target
In a landmark cancer study published online in Nature, researchers at NYU School of Medicine have unraveled a longstanding mystery about how pancreatic tumor cells feed themselves, opening up new therapeutic possibilities for a notoriously lethal disease with few treatment options.
A new study in Nature Genetics looking at the genomes of more than 13,000 men identified four new genetic variants associated with an increased risk of testicular cancer, the most commonly diagnosed type in young men today.

A high-salt diet may be a risk factor for autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS), according to three papers published in the journal Nature.
NinePoint Medical, Inc., an emerging leader in the development of medical devices for in vivo imaging, today announced that data demonstrating positive results related to a new tethered capsule endomicroscopy technology, licensed from Massachusetts General Hospital , were published online this week in the journal Nature Medicine.
In an article published today in the journal Nature, an international research group describes how insulin binds to the cell to allow the cell to transform sugar into energy–and also how the insulin itself changes shape as a result of this connection.
( Vanderbilt University Medical Center ) Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center investigators have identified three new genetic “hotspots” linked to colorectal cancer. These variants, reported Dec. 23 in an Advanced Online Publication in Nature Genetics, provide new insight into the biology of colorectal cancer — and could represent new therapeutic targets for the disease.
A joint team of scientists from The New York Stem Cell Foundation Laboratory and Columbia University Medical Center has developed a technique that may prevent the inheritance of mitochondrial diseases in children. The study is published online today in Nature.
A new study by NYU School of Medicine researchers suggests that an existing HIV drug called maraviroc could be a potential therapy for Staphylococcus aureus, a notorious and deadly pathogen linked to hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations each year.
Pathological changes typical of Alzheimer's disease were significantly reduced in mice by blockade of an immune system transmitter. A research team from Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the University of Zurich has just published a new therapeutic approach in fighting Alzheimer's disease in the current issue of Nature Medicine
