New treatment of hepatic disorders of abnormal lipid deposition
The Experimental Therapeutics group , directed by Prof. Carlo V. Catapano at the Institute of Oncology Research (IOR, affiliated to USI and member of Bios+), in collaboration with Prof. Jonathan Hall at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich (ETH, Zurich) identified a novel mechanism for the treatment of hepatic disorders of abnormal lipid deposition.

Dengue and Zika Viruses: Towards a Better Understanding of the Mechanisms of Transmission
Aedes mosquitoes are the principal vectors of dengue and other arboviruses, including Zika, for which no vaccines or antiviral treatments currently exist. Understanding the factors that influence the transmission of arboviruses from mosquitoes to humans is therefore a priority because it could guide the implementation of public health measures that could limit or even prevent epidemics.

Bacterium decreases effectiveness of immunotherapy
A new study finds that antibodies linked to Helicobacter pylori infections may be associated with lower overall survival outcomes in melanoma patients treated with immunotherapy. CONTENU - Helicobacter pylori is a bacterium that colonizes the stomach lining and is found in more than half of the global population, making it one of the most widespread bacterial infections in the world.

Research by the RVC explores link between parasitic infection and stunted growth in children
Analysis of current literature and research by the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) has revealed there are various pathways which connect parasitic infection to stunting. The findings suggest that human exposure to parasitic disease from conception through to two years of age may contribute to childhood stunting.

Generational inequalities in mental health accelerated during Covid-19 pandemic
Generational inequalities in mental health accelerated during Covid-19 pandemic
Core symptoms of anxiety and depression were more common among younger generations compared to older age groups during the COVID-19 outbreak - with the gap between young and old widening further during the pandemic, according to a new study by UCL and King's College London. Published today in Psychological Medicine, the study explores data from 26,772 people living in the UK across five different birth cohort studies - following those born in 1946, 1958, 1970, 1989-90 and 2000-02.

Impact of high GP turnover on service and health
A new study by University of Manchester researchers has revealed the stark impact that high turnover of GPs has on patients' health outcomes and the service they receive in England. The analysis found that 'persistent high turnover', defined by the researchers as when more than 10% of GPs changed in a practice in at least 3 consecutive years - was not uncommon.

Alcohol-related liver disease: mechanism could form basis for development of new therapies
Medicine & Science Alcohol-related liver disease is among the most common causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Due to an incomplete understanding of the factors contributing to disease development, liver transplantation is still the only available cure. A team led by Tim Hendrikx from MedUni Vienna's Department of Laboratory Medicine has now uncovered a new mechanism that plays an important role in the progression of the disease.

Studies at patients’ homes may improve accessibility and inclusiveness of drug research
Studies at patients' homes instead of at the hospital may improve access to clinical research. According to Amos de Jong, PhD candidate at Utrecht University, improved accessibility is necessary to find sufficient and representative study participants for clinical research aimed at developing new medicines and medical devices.

Actin affects the spread of cancer in several ways
The transport of molecules along the cell's skeleton plays a role in cancer metastasis, Freiburg researchers show Metastases occur when cancer cells leave a primary tumor and spread throughout the body. For this, they have to break connections with neighboring cells and migrate to other tissues. Both processes are promoted by signalling molecules released by the cancer cells, which thereby increase the malignancy of tumors.

Exploring the role of organ and immune ageing in heart and lung diseases
Exploring the role of organ and immune ageing in heart and lung diseases
Cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases are closely linked. Researchers at the MHH now want to demonstrate the molecular mechanisms and investigate the influence of age-related changes in the heart, lungs and immune system. Cardiovascular diseases and diseases of the lower respiratory tract are among the most common causes of death, especially in older people.

DNA sequencing method lifts ’veil’ from genome black box
Many life-saving drugs directly interact with DNA to treat diseases such as cancer, but scientists have struggled to detect how and why they work - until now. In a paper published in the journal Nature Biotechnology , University of Cambridge researchers have outlined a new DNA sequencing method that can detect where and how small molecule drugs interact with the targeted genome.

COVID-19 patients may retain elevated risk of death 18 months after infection
COVID-19 is associated with higher risks of cardiovascular disease and death in the shortand long-term, according to a study in nearly 160,000 unvaccinated participants co-led by a UCL researcher. The study, published today in Cardiovascular Research , a journal of the European Society of Cardiology, investigated outcomes in a group of adults mostly aged in their 60s.

Covid-19 in pregnant women can damage the placenta and the foetus
Medicine & Science Using prenatal magnetic resonance imaging, a group of MedUni Vienna researchers examined the placentas and foetuses of women who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 during pregnancy. Their research results demonstrate that the different strains of the virus that emerged during the pandemic led to varying degrees of damage: especially involving pre-Omicron variants, the detected placental lesions could potentially harm both development and health in some of the affected unborn children.
