New findings on brain inflammation in conjunction with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's
In a study published in Cell Reports, Bertrand Joseph and colleagues present new findings on some of the key players in brain inflammation. Inflammatory processes occur in the brain in conjunction with neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's as well as stroke. In the long term, these findings could lead to new treatments.
Researchers shed light on how hypoxia makes tumor cells more invasive
The polarity of a cell, i.e. what is up and down, is often lost in cancer cells when they become more malignant and invades the surrounding tissue. Lars Holmgren and colleagues have investigated this process and found out more about the mechanisms behind. The study is published in Nature Communications.
New findings on development of blood vessels
In a publication in Nature Communications Lars Holmgren and colleagues show how cells and extracellular matrix interacts to form blood vessels.
