A chemical found in broccoli sprouts and a few other vegetables is showing some promise as a treatment for autism, potentially mitigating some common behavioral symptoms of the condition.
A type of carnivorous plant, called the pitcher plant, may soon be saving more lives than it takes. The unusual insect trap has inspired the creation of a new coating for medical devices that could potentially prevent deadly clotting and infections in vulnerable patients.
Red wine seems to be the wonder drink of the modern age. Now, a new study is suggesting that a compound derived from red grapes may be an effective treatment for acne.
We all know that certain vitamins, washes, and levels of sun exposure can help maintain your skin's healthy glow, but what about bacteria? Researchers from AOBiome LLC recently tested the theory using specific bacteria as an unusual and little considered skin therapy, and they reported some promising results.
A new microchip has been developed that can simulate the "microenvironment" of tumor growth in a living body. While it may seem far-fetched that a synthetic technology can mimic the conditions of a purely natural disease, researchers are claiming that is perfect for studying the effectiveness of experimental nanoparticle treatments.
Researchers have found that exercise isn't just good for your body, it's good for your chemotherapy too. That's according to a new study that has found evidence supporting the theory that chemotherapy combined with exercise shrinks tumors faster than just chemo alone.
Researchers are claiming to have found a way to trigger tissue repair in wasting muscles in patients suffering from muscular dystrophy. This could potentially revolutionize how doctors treat such conditions, which currently lack ways to slow the progression of muscle damage.
Huntington's disease is a difficult-to-study and very sneaky genetic condition that always results in death. Now researchers believe they have managed to create a model from primate cells that allows them to study the effects of the disease in accelerated time, and all in a Petri dish.
Imagine every small cut, scrape, and scratch proving a potentially fatal wound, where the blood just never stops pouring. That's life every day for patients with serious hemophilia. However, now researchers believe they can treat this dangerous condition with the help of modified plant material.
The dangerous and highly adaptable food borne illness Listeria monocytogenes is reportedly extremely difficult to treat when treatment is necessary. Now researchers think they have figured out why this is, potentially opening up doors for strategies and treatment options.
Sperm precursors have been successfully created from the skin cells of infertile men, which were then used to create apparently healthy sperm cells, according to a recent study. Such research offers hope for infertile men, but also raises some alarming concerns.
Two Americans were recently cured of the deadly Ebola virus that is sweeping across west Africa. Now the physicians who thought up the so-called miraculous cure have released details on how it works and what inspired it.
Asian elephants, as it turns out, can contract the human disease tuberculosis. But because these are animals, and not humans, they are often difficult to treat, and scientists behind a new study are trying to change that.
Allergy suffers everywhere rejoice! You may be staving off cancer without even realizing it. Antihistamine - the active components of many allergy drugs - may help fight certain kinds of cancer, according to a recent study.
