Pollution from cooking emissions hangs in the air — ScienceDaily

Organic aerosols -- such as those released in cooking -- may stay in the atmosphere for several days, because of nanostructures formed by fatty acids as they are released into the air. By identifying the...

Vitamin E can boost immunotherapy responses by reinvigorating dendritic cells — ScienceDaily

Combining a retrospective analysis of clinical records with in-depth laboratory studies, researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have discovered that vitamin E can enhance immunotherapy responses by stimulating the activity...

Coronaviruses evolve to recognize glycans of their host species — ScienceDaily

When coronaviruses jump species -- as SARS-CoV-2 is thought to have done from bats or pangolins to humans -- they must quickly adapt to their new host. For example, they must evolve to recognize...

Tumors change their metabolism to spread more effectively — ScienceDaily

Cancer cells can disrupt a metabolic pathway that breaks down fats and proteins to boost the levels of a byproduct called methylmalonic acid, thereby driving metastasis, according to research led by scientists at Weill...

New study reveals that healthy plant-based diets are associated with a lower risk of...

New research published in Diabetologia (the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes ) finds that the consumption of healthy plant-based foods, including fruits, vegetables, nuts, coffee, and legumes, is associated...

Advancing maturation of human pluripotent stem cell-derived heart cells — ScienceDaily

A Mount Sinai-led team has developed a reproducible and scalable method to advance maturation of human pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (hPSC-CMs) -- cells that support heart muscle contraction, generated in the lab from human...

How a narrow-spectrum antibiotic takes aim at C. Diff — ScienceDaily

Most antibiotics are double-edged swords. Besides killing the pathogen they are prescribed for, they also decimate beneficial bacteria and change the composition of the gut microbiome. As a result, patients become more prone to...

Cereal fiber is associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease — ScienceDaily

Researchers at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health and colleagues evaluated whether dietary fiber intake was associated with a decrease in inflammation in older adults and if fiber was inversely related to cardiovascular...

In mice, zinc helps thymus of the immune system regrow and immune-cell recovery after...

Zinc's immune-boosting properties are well-established, but scientists haven't known exactly how it works. In a new study published online March 25 in the journal Blood, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center scientists reveal two ways...
