Physical activity may reduce depression symptoms

Researchers found that sleep problems, lack of energy, and physical inactivity may lead to a depressed mood. The findings reverse conventional wisdom that depression leads to physical inactivity.

Genes linked to abnormal bone density and fracture

Using information from hundreds of thousands of people, researchers produced a detailed analysis of the genetic factors related to bone density.

Physical activity helps reduce depression symptoms

Researchers found that sleep problems, lack of energy, and physical inactivity may lead to a depressed mood. The findings reverse conventional wisdom that depression leads to physical inactivity.

School nutrition policies reduce weight gain

Implementing nutrition policies at middle schools limited unhealthy weight gains in students. The findings highlight an effective obesity prevention strategy in schools.

Genetically modified houseplant cleans indoor air

Researchers genetically modified an indoor houseplant to purify certain airborne toxins commonly found in the home that have been linked to cancer.

Eating red meat daily triples heart disease-related chemical

People had high blood levels of TMAO, a chemical that’s been linked to heart disease, when they ate a diet rich in red meat.

Revealing gene regulation in the brain

A resource with information on gene regulation from more than 2,000 human brains yielded insights into mental illnesses and will enable future studies of human brain development and function.

Hydrocarbon Stapled Peptides that Inhibit the Linear Ubiquitin Chain Assembly Complex (LUBAC) for the Therapy of the Activated B Cell-like (ABC) Subtype of Diffuse Large B Bell Lymphoma (A Type of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma)

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most common type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and consists of three subtypes: activated B-cell (ABC), germinal center B-cell (GBC), and primary mediastinal B-cell (PMB). Despite advances in the front-line therapy for DLBCL, approximately one-third of patients will relapse. Substantially worse outcomes have been reported for patients diagnosed with ABC DL...

siRNA Delivery Using Hexameric Tetrahedral RNA Nanostructures for Gene Silencing

RNA interference (RNAi) is a biological response to double-stranded RNA that regulates expression of protein-coding genes and is a natural mechanism for gene silencing. Delivery of short, interfering RNA (siRNA) leads to RNAi of the targeted genes.  Researchers at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), in collaboration with researchers at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), develope...

Methods of Producing Thymic Emigrants from Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

Hematopoietic and pluripotent stem cells can be differentiated into T cells with potential clinical utility. Current approaches for in vitro T cell production rely on Notch signaling and artificial mimicry of thymic selection. However, these approaches result in unconventional or phenotypically aberrant T cells; which may lead to unpredictable behavior in clinical use. Thus, there exists a need fo...

Melanoma-Associated Antigen-A (MAGE-A3/A6) -Specific Monoclonal Antibody

A T cell receptor (TCR) recognizing melanoma-associated antigen-A (MAGE-A3/A6) is currently used in clinical trials involving adoptive transfer of TCR-transduced T cells for patients with metastatic cancer. To be eligible for this TCR immunotherapy, tumor specimens from patients must show homogeneous expression of MAGE-A3 and/or MAGE-A6. Currently-available antibodies recognize additional members ...
