Immune system fights against cancer

Source: University of York Summary: Researchers have discovered a new significant information about how to boost the immune system’s fight against cancer. The human immune system has an amazing potential to clear pre-cancerous or cancer cells. But cancerous cells have the ability to emit ‘off’ signals to the cells of immune systemRead More →

Proton Pump Inhibitors

Source: British Medical Journal; The University of Hong Kong Summary: Researchers found that long-term use of drugs (Proton Pump Inhibitors – PPIs) to treat acid reflex is linked to double the risk of developing stomach cancer. A bacteria called Helicobacter pylori (H.p) is commonly found in the stomach and previous findingsRead More →

Blood vessel-like tube grafts

Source: University of Minnesota Summary: Researchers have created a new lab-grown blood vessel replacement, first-of-its-kind made up of biological materials which can be used in hemodialysis grafts, pediatric heart reconstruction, and adult bypass grafts.
