  • Gene-editing offers hope for people with hereditary disorder
    on February 2, 2024

    A group of patients with a hereditary disorder have had their lives transformed by a single treatment of a breakthrough gene-editing therapy, according to the lead researcher.

  • Disrupted cellular function behind type 2 diabetes in obesity
    on February 2, 2024

    Disrupted function of ‘cleaning cells’ in the body may help to explain why some people with obesity develop type 2 diabetes, while others do not. A study describes this newly discovered mechanism.

  • Researchers 3D-print functional human brain tissue
    on February 2, 2024

    It’s an achievement with important implications for scientists studying the brain and working on treatments for a broad range of neurological and neurodevelopmental disorders, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.

  • Human cells building ‘molecular highways’ captured for first time
    on February 2, 2024

    Researchers have captured the world’s first high-resolution images of the earliest moments of microtubules forming inside human cells. The findings lay the foundations for potential breakthroughs in treating many different types of diseases ranging from cancer to neurodevelopmental disorders.

  • Scientists discover a potential way to repair synapses damaged in Alzheimer’s disease
    on February 1, 2024

    While newly approved drugs for Alzheimer’s show some promise for slowing the memory-robbing disease, the current treatments fall far short of being effective at regaining memory.

  • Resistant bacteria can remain in the body for years
    on February 1, 2024

    Fighting disease-causing bacteria becomes more difficult when antibiotics stop working. People with pre-existing conditions in particular can carry resistant germs and suffer from repeated infections for years, according to a new study.

  • 3D-printed pneumatic modules replace electric controls in soft robots
    on February 1, 2024

    A research team develops 3D-printed pneumatic logic modules that control the movements of soft robots using only air pressure. These modules enable logical switching of the air flow and can thus imitate an electrical control system. The modules make it possible for the first time to produce flexible and electronics-free soft robots entirely in a 3D printer using conventional printing material.

  • Nutraceuticals in migraine
    on February 2, 2024

    Nutraceuticals represent substances derived from food or plants that provide medical or health benefits, and are increasingly sought by patients as a means of treating migraine in a natural, effective, and safe manner as conventional therapies often fail, are expensive, and laden with side effects. This chapter reviews various nutraceutical therapies for migraine including phytomedicines (plant-based therapies), diets for migraine management and vitamin, mineral, and supplement-based […]

  • Sustainability benefits of transitioning from current diets to plant-based alternatives or whole-food diets in Sweden
    on January 31, 2024

    Plant-based alternatives (PBAs) are increasingly becoming part of diets. Here, we investigate the environmental, nutritional, and economic implications of replacing animal-source foods (ASFs) with PBAs or whole foods (WFs) in the Swedish diet. Utilising two functional units (mass and energy), we model vegan, vegetarian, and flexitarian scenarios, each based on PBAs or WFs. Our results demonstrate that PBA-rich diets substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions (30-52%), land use (20-45%), […]

  • Dietary supplement use among lactating mothers following different dietary patterns – an online survey
    on January 31, 2024

    CONCLUSION: More than half of the participants reported the use of supplements during lactation with the highest proportion in vegans. However, over one third of the mothers did not report supplementing with iodine, regardless of their dietary pattern and most participants also did not report DHA supplements. It is worrisome that a high number of vegans did not report vitamin B12 supplementation, but this could be partly due to issues with reporting. It is crucial to provide further education […]

  • Differential peripheral immune signatures elicited by vegan versus ketogenic diets in humans
    on January 30, 2024

    Nutrition has broad impacts on all physiological processes. However, how nutrition affects human immunity remains largely unknown. Here we explored the impact of a dietary intervention on both immunity and the microbiota by performing a post hoc analysis of a clinical trial in which each of the 20 participants sequentially consumed vegan or ketogenic diets for 2 weeks ( NCT03878108 ). Using a multiomics approach including multidimensional flow cytometry, transcriptomic, proteomic, metabolomic…

  • Development of a diet quality score and adherence to the Swiss dietary recommendations for vegans
    on January 30, 2024

    CONCLUSION: The newly developed DQS-V provides a single score for estimating diet quality among vegan adults. Further validation studies examining the DQS-V in relation to an independent dietary assessment method and to biomarkers of nutritional intake and status are still needed before the general application of the DQS-V.
