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 ...

New Drug Delivery Method Can Reverse Senescence of Stem Cells

As we age, our bodies change and degenerate over time in a process called senescence. Stem cells, which have the unique ability to change into other cell types, also experience senescence, which presents an issue when trying to maintain cell cultures for therapeutic use. The biomolecules produced ...

Novel Study Deepens Knowledge of Treatment-Resistant Hypertension

Novel research found that apparent resistant hypertension (aRH) prevalence was lower in a real-world sample than previously reported, but still relatively frequent -- affecting nearly 1 in 10 hypertensive ...
