Now there is additional evidence of the connection between the intake of antioxidant supplements and increased tumor growth. Experiments on animals and human cancer tissue confirm that addition of some antioxidants increases the growth of the severe malignant melanoma type of skin cancer. “This is not the way to treat cancer. In the best case the treatment makes no difference,...
Last year, researchers Tobias Cronberg and Niklas Mattsson at Lund University in Sweden published a study showing serum tau levels to be a new and promising marker for identifying patients with severe brain damage after cardiac arrest. Together with Marion Moseby Knappe, they have now discovered that the protein Neurofilament light (NFL) in serum constitutes an even better marker...
Using breast tomosynthesis (3D screening) in the image to the left (one of about 50 thin cross-sectional image slices of the breast), you can see an approximately 1 cm-large tumour that is not clearly visible on the mammography image on the right, even though the breast does not contain particularly dense tissue. Image: Skåne University Hospital in Malmö “With breast...
A new structure in human cells has been discovered by researchers at Karolinska Institutet in collaboration with colleagues in the UK. The structure is a new type of protein complex that the cell uses to attach to its surroundings and proves to play a key part in cell division. The study is published in the journal Nature Cell Biology. The cells in...
Levels of antiphospholipid antibodies, which are associated with rheumatic diseases, are also elevated in myocardial infarction without any autoimmune co-morbidity, a study from Karolinska Institutet in Sweden published in Annals of Internal Medicinereports. Elisabet Svenungsson. Antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL) are a group of antibodies that target endogenous tissue, including the fat molecule cardiolipin and the plasma protein β2glycoprotein-I. Cardiolipin is found in the...
The way we breathe may affect how well our memories are consolidated (i.e. reinforced and stabilised). If we breathe through the nose rather than the mouth after trying to learn a set of smells, we remember them better, researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden report in The Journal of Neuroscience. Research into how breathing affects the brain has become an ever-more...
​New research results show that six-week-long hospital admissions for patients with heart infections can be halved, without this affecting the patients’ prospects of recovery. Infection of the inner lining of the heart (endocardium) is a serious condition. The disease can lead to serious damage, if it is not treated quickly. Between 15% and 30% of patients die from the disease. The...
Pancreatic cancer is currently very difficult to detect while it is still resectable. A new blood test developed by researchers at Lund University in Sweden, Herlev Hospital, Knight Cancer Center and Immunovia AB, can detect pancreatic cancer in the very earliest stages of the disease. The results have...
  Fredrik Almqvist, professor i organisk kemi vid Umeå universitet, och hans amerikanska forskarkollega Christina Stallings erhåller 24 miljoner kronor från National Institutes of Health (NIH) för forskning om att bekämpa infektioner av den vanligaste typen av tuberkulosbakterier.–Det är helt fantastiskt! Ett anslag av den här storleken gör verkligen skillnad och ger oss...
