A new approach to treating brain cancer forces glucose-starved cancer tumor cells to burn themselves out. The method was developed in the laboratory of Prof. Barak Rothblatt at Ben-Gurion University in the Negev and is based on a decade of research
Researchers have developed polymers that bind to proteins that play a key role in cancer and inflammation, thus preventing - in mice - the formation of metastases and slowing down the progression of arteriosclerosis and hepatitis
Researchers report new compounds that appear to be able to mimic the physical drive of exercise—at least in rodent cells. This discovery may lead to a new way to treat muscular dystrophy and other medical conditions in people,
Dutch researchers found that this process happens all the time and damages all genes, but the longer the genes, the more likely they are to be damaged because they have more sites. Especially the big damage is
The technology developed by Prof. Yuval Shaked's research group was registered as a patent and is now in the process of being commercialized
35% of the corona patients who died in the epidemic were diabetics. In a new study, Weizmann Institute of Science scientists reveal that high blood sugar levels disrupt the immune system's ability to fight lung infections and present
Stress and anxiety can worsen health conditions, including diabetes. Awareness and preparation reduce risks
Researchers are trying to find treatments adapted to protein networks that characterize cancer tumors
Researchers have discovered that the skeletal muscle composition of the blind rat is preserved throughout its life, delaying its aging
The cell's garbage disposal system changes in cancer and allows it to escape the immune system
Researchers have discovered that two epigenetic events (removing and adding methyl from DNA) lead to the differentiation of stem cells into muscle cells and thus to the regeneration and healing of muscles after their injury
The error rate of the existing biopsy tests is 30%. Mistakes that are fatal because the test turns up clay but the cancer exists and continues to spread. Good imaging can improve accuracy
Tissue engineering offers a solution for the treatment of disc herniations: an implant that combines synthetic hydrogel and living cartilage cells
Today, patients needing a heart transplant have to join a waiting list, and hearts become available when someone else dies. Because there are not enough hearts, only critically ill patients are put on the waiting list
Producing heart cells from skin cells made it possible to discover defects that lead to heart failure
A study of human cancer tissues grown in mice has suggested that a large group of lung cancer patients may be successfully treated with a drug currently approved for other cancers
Revealing the mechanism that delays the appearance of tanning could help create treatments that will protect us from skin cancer
The ability of the cells of the immune system to inhibit the cancer cells depends to a large extent on the distance between the receptors by means of which they check and identify the "suspicious" cell
Researchers at the Hebrew University and the Hadassah Medical Center have developed an ointment to treat the severe side effects of targeted cancer treatment and significantly improve the quality of life of patients.
A team of researchers from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev has developed a breakthrough technology that includes a revolutionary new test that will predict the response of cancer patients to immunotherapy with a higher percentage of accuracy than existing technologies. The results of the study have been published
Assessment: The new discovery may later lead to the development of a general vaccine against the deadly skin cancer
A certain essential protein increases the expression of another protein in cancer cells in the uterus - and this transforms its skin, encourages them to divide and thus contributes to the spread of the tumor
The institute's scientists reveal how cancer leads to fatal emaciation and point the way to treatment
Many parents think they are protecting their children by smoking on the balcony or near the bedroom window. But a new study by Tel Aviv University states that contrary to the popular opinion of those parents,
