An Unexpected Doorway Into the Ear Opens New Possibilities for Hearing Restoration

Researchers have developed a new method to deliver drugs into the inner ear. The discovery was possible by harnessing the natural flow of fluids in the brain and employing a little understood backdoor into the cochlea. When combined to deliver a ...

Researchers Show How a Tumor Cell's Location and Environment Affect Its Identity

Using 3-D models of ovarian cancer tumors, scientists found differences in gene activity based on where a cell is in a tumor, demonstrating how a cell's location and environment in a cancerous tumor can strongly influence which genes are active and ...

Follow the Leader: Researchers Identify Mechanism of Cancer Invasion

肿瘤细胞unc的积累ontrollably dividing, some of which can invade other parts of the body. The process is difficult to predict in detail, and eradicating the cells poses even greater difficulty. Now, a research team has revealed how the exodus initiates, shedding ...

Researchers Develop Digital Test to Directly Measure HIV Viral Load

A milliliter of blood contains about 15 individual drops. For a person with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), each drop of blood could contain anywhere from fewer than 20 copies of the virus to more than 500,000 copies. Called the viral load, this is what is measured to allow clinicians to ...
