Researchers have identified a molecule in the blood that is produced during exercise. The molecule, Lac-Phe, can effectively reduce food intake and obesity in mouse models.
Diluting the blood plasma of older mice has a stronger rejuvenating effect on the brain, liver, and muscles than transplanting the blood of younger mice.
A new method of examining blood plasma allowed researchers to identify specific chemical bonds within the blood. The new technique allowed researchers to accurately distinguish between Alzheimer's disease and Lewy body dementia, thus reducing cases of misdiagnosis.
A new measuring method has detected oxytocin at much higher rates in blood serum and plasma than researchers previously thought.
