22.03.2018 Scientists have found a "switch" responsible for a tumor growth
Scientists from the Karolinsky Institute have carried out a study in mice. They have revealed a "genetic switch" that regulates the growth of cancer cells. When it’s "off" the development of cancer in rodents was prevented. Normal cells were not damaged, as their growth is controlled by another "switch", The Hindustan Times reports.
19.03.2018 Type 2 diabetes mellitus can be really cured with a very low-calorie diet

As The Daily Mail notes, many bacteria causing deadly diseases are not afraid of antibiotics, absolutely.
06.03.2018 Scientists have found molecules that can destroy tumors
Selenium is a powerful antioxidant, useful for health. TrxR1 enzyme, containing selenium, supports the growth of cells and protects them from oxidative stress. Previous studies have shown that selenium is associated with the development of cancer, but this correlation is complex and not well studied, The Deccan Chronicle reports.

19.02.2018 Australian researchers have found an "inflammation switch" in cells
Healthy cells have a mechanism that stops inflammation in time. However this mechanism fails with some diseases. Inflammation presents in diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, gout and liver pathology. Scientists of Queensland University have found out how cells regulate the start and stop of inflammation, Zee News reports.
16.02.2018 Scientists have made a breakthrough in the treatment of asthma
Modern treatment methods for asthma have many side effects. Medicinal products often quickly become ineffective, and some of them are simply toxic to humans.
