Genetic study sheds light on how mosquitoes transmit malaria

An international research team, including researchers from Simon Fraser University, has determined the genetic sequencing of 16 mosquitoes (Anopheles genus) – the sole carriers of human malaria – providing new insight into how they adapt to humans as primary hosts of the disease. Their findings have been published in the Science Express, an electronic publication [...]

IU-led research team identifies genetic variant linked to better memory performance

People with a newly identified genetic variant perform better on certain types of memory tests, a discovery that may point the way to new treatments for the memory impairment caused by Alzheimer’s disease or other age-associated conditions. In what the international research team is calling the largest study to date of human memory, an analysis [...]

New Test Kit Enables Effective Treatment For Newly Identified Deadly Lymphoma

An international research team has identified a new type of deadly intestinal lymphoma that is particularly common in Asia. The team, led by clinician-scientists from the SingHealth Academic Healthcare Cluster, also developed a new diagnostic test to accurately identify these patients. The study, carried out by the Singapore Lymphoma Study Group at Singapore General Hospital [...]

Improved Treatment Alternative For Lymphoid Leukemia Suggested By International Study

Discovering what they call the “Achilles’ heel” for lymphoid leukemia, an international research team has tested a possible alternative treatment that eradicated the disease in mouse models. Reporting their results in the journal Cancer Cell, the scientists said the targeted molecular therapy described in their study could have direct implications for current treatment of Acute [...]
