A new case study published in the journal JAMA Dermatology reveals a young patient suffering from severe eczema along with a longstanding case of alopecia totalis – a condition resulting in the complete loss of hair on the scalp and face – has displayed major hair regrowth after being treated with a newly approved eczema drug...

Cancer isn't some foreign illness invading your body – it's essentially just regular cells dividing out of control. Current cancer treatments like chemotherapy and radiotherapy are designed to kill tumors, but they often take down healthy cells as well. An emerging technique could provide a more targeted approach, stopping tumorous cells from proliferating and effectively putting the cance
Researchers at the Center for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP) have developed a new targeted treatment for cancer. Chemotherapy drugs are wrapped in "nano-bubbles" called liposomes, which are then injected into the desired part of the body and made to release their payload on demand, by applying X-ray radiation... Continue Reading X-rays burst chemo-filled nanobubbles for targeted cancer drug
With the current opioid crisis in the US, finding new non-addictive painkillers and other relief methods is key. An experimental, non-opioid drug known as EMA401 is showing promise, and now researchers at Washington University in St Louis have found that it works by targeting a different part of the body, outside of the nervous system... Continue Reading Experimental drug fuels hopes for n
Cerebral small vessel disease (SVD) is one of the most commonly associated causes of age-related dementia and stroke. New research, led by the University of Edinburgh, may have finally uncovered the mechanism by which SVD causes brain cell damage, as well as a potential treatment to prevent the damage, and possibly even reverse it...

A fascinating study by a team of researchers from Weill Cornell Medicine, Columbia University Irving Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian has found that the ketogenic diet may improve the efficacy of a new class of cancer drug that has been inexplicably showing disappointing results in early human clinical trials... Continue Reading How the ketogenic diet could improve efficacy of a new
An exciting experimental drug developed by scientists at Johns Hopkins Medicine has been found to stop the progression of Parkinson's disease in live mice models. The compelling new drug could be the first medication to specifically slow the progression of the devastating disease as opposed to current treatments that only target the symptoms... Continue Reading Drug that stops progression
Glioblastoma is one of the most deadly forms of cancer. Affecting the brain, those unlucky enough to receive a diagnosis don't have many treatment options – and usually a median life expectancy of just over a year. Now, researchers at MIT have developed nanoparticles that could provide hope, crossing the blood-brain barrier and delivering two types of drugs to fight tumors... Continue Read
One of the biggest challenges humanity faces in venturing off Earth is how to tackle the dangers of cosmic radiation in deep space. When astronauts travel outside the protective ring of our planet's magnetic field, they are subjected to cosmic radiation at levels some studies estimate are up to 1,000 times higher than what we face here on Earth. Researchers have now discovered a novel drug
Transcranial magnetic stimulation, where magnetic pulses are delivered non-invasively through the skull to excite particular regions of the brain, is a promising technique with applications that could range from boosted memories to reduced food cravings. Now, scientists exploring its potential to tackle drug addiction have found that it can dampen brain activity in response to common trigg
