Cancers sometimes escape our immune defenses because of the over-activity of molecular signaling systems, called checkpoint processes. Now we may be able to fight back using a new range of molecules, researchers in China report in the European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry. “We have been working on the discovery of anti-cancer agents for more than

AI can detect COVID-19 from the sound of your cough

But a newly developed AI, with a keen algorithmic ear, might be able to detect asymptomatic cases from the sounds of people’s coughs, according to a new study. A group of researchers at MIT recently developed an artificial

How the immune system deals with the gut’s plethora of microbes

The gut is an unusually noisy place, where hundreds of species of bacteria live alongside whatever microbes happen to have hitched a ride in on your lunch.
