  • Gastrointestinal flora: the culprit for severe lung damage after blood transfusion

    Science Daily. - July 11, 2018

    Knowledge that the gastrointestinal flora affects both healthy physiological processes and various disease mechanisms has increased in recent years. A new study reveals a previously unknown link between the bacteria in the gut and acute lung injury after blood transfusions.

  • How Mycobacterium tuberculosis escapes death in macrophages

    Science Daily. - July 10, 2018

    The bacteria that cause the devastating disease tuberculosis have the ability to escape destruction and grow after they are engulfed by lung macrophages, the immune cells that are supposed to destroy pathogens. Now researchers have described key biochemical steps between the bacteria …

  • Drug's impact on amino acid transporter may offer non-small cell lung cancer patients new hope

    Science Daily. - July 10, 2018

    An amino acid transporter named xCT may affect the growth and progression of non-small cell lung cancer, a discovery that may predict the five-year survival rate of patients suffering from this cancer, now at 16 percent, researchers have concluded.

  • How to start a nanomotor

    Science Daily. - July 05, 2018

    Cilia allow sperm to move, form fine protective hairs in the lungs and play a crucial role in the differentiation of organs in embryos. Researchers have now reconstructed the protein complex responsible for transport within cilia, which plays a decisive role in their functioning.
