Human DNA Is All Over The Planet, And Scientists Are Worried

Every skin flake, hair follicle, eyelash, and spit drop cast from your body contains instructions written in a chemical code, one that is unique to you. According to a new study, technology has advanced to the point that it's now possible to sift scraps of human DNA out of the air, water, or soil [...]

Long COVID: The Invisible Consequence of Socioeconomic Inequality

A recent study conducted by the Universities of Southampton and Oxford reveals a strong correlation between the incidence of long COVID and the level of area-specific deprivation. It found that individuals from the most deprived regions are 46 percent more likely to experience long COVID compared to those from less deprived areas. This research, which was published in [...]

Mutation Mystery: Unraveling the Secret Behind COVID-19’s Rapid Spread

Molecular modeling suggests structural consequences of an early protein mutation that promoted viral transmission. RIKEN researchers discovered that an early mutation (D614G) in the SARS-CoV-2 virus may have contributed to its rapid spread by altering the spike protein’s shape, improving the virus’s ability to adapt to human hosts. The finding could help inform the development of next-generation [...]

Decoding Long COVID: NIH Study Exposes the Inner Workings of Neurological Symptoms

A NIH study on twelve Long COVID patients found differences in immune cell profiles and autonomic dysfunction, contributing to the understanding of the condition and potentially leading to better diagnoses and new treatments. Twelve people with persistent neurological symptoms after SARS-CoV-2 infection were intensely studied at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and were found to have differences [...]

Pancreatic Cancer Vaccine Shows Promise in Small Trial

Using mRNA tailored to each patient’s tumor, the vaccine may have staved off the return of one of the deadliest forms of cancer in half of those who received it. Five years ago, a small group of cancer scientists meeting at a restaurant in a deconsecrated church hospital in Mainz, Germany, drew up an [...]

Researchers develop technique for rapid detection of neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s

University of Minnesota Twin Cities researchers have developed a groundbreaking new diagnostic technique that will allow for faster and more accurate detection of neurodegenerative diseases. The method will likely open a door for earlier treatment and mitigation of various diseases that affect humans, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, and similar diseases that affect animals, [...]

A simple paper test could offer early cancer diagnosis

MIT engineers have designed a new nanoparticle sensor that could enable early diagnosis of cancer with a simple urine test. The sensors, which can detect many different cancerous proteins, could also be used to distinguish the type of a tumor or how it is responding to treatment. The nanoparticles are designed so that when they encounter [...]

What really killed COVID-19 patients? Wasn’t a cytokine storm, suggests study

Secondary bacterial infection of the lung (pneumonia) was extremely common in patients with COVID-19, affecting almost half the patients who required support from mechanical ventilation. By applying machine learning to medical record data, scientists at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine found that secondary bacterial pneumonia that does not resolve was a key driver [...]
