New small molecules for the treatment of autoinflammatory diseases

EPFL scientists have discovered two small-molecule compound series that can effectively block a central pathway of the innate immune system, offering a promising new way for treating autoinflammatory diseases


Pathway of Alzheimer’s degeneration discovered

Scientists at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital (The Neuro) of McGill University have used a unique approach to track brain degeneration in Alzheimer’s disease, uncovering a pathway through which degeneration spreads from one region to another.


Ketogenic diet may boost targeted cancer therapy

A very low carbohydrate, high-fat diet called the ketogenic diet may improve the effectiveness of an emerging class of cancer drugs


Gene discovery unlocks mysteries to our immunity

The gene, called C6orf106 or “C6”, controls the production of proteins involved in infectious diseases, cancer and diabetes. The gene has existed for 500 million years, but its potential is only now understood.


New cancer immunotherapy shows promise in early tests

Much cancer immunotherapy research has focused on harnessing the immune system’s T cells to fight tumors, but other types of immune cells could be important in fighting cancer too


Mapping the brain with data science

Patients with dementia and other neural diseases show physical symptoms such as stumbling and confusion, but identifying the problem isn’t as simple as taking an X-ray

Kiss of death’ cancer: How computational geeks may have uncovered a therapy for a deadly disease. A solution for triple negative breast cancer ?

Monash researchers have used genetic and treatment data from triple negative cancer cells grown in the lab and from hundreds of patients world-wide to develop a computer program, which has revealed a previously unknown combination of drugs that may be the answer to the disease.


Sensitive Fiber Thread to Introduce Diagnostic Capabilities Into Clothing

At the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) researchers have developed a smart thread capable of sensing tiny changes of pressure and strain that are placed on it
