Researchers have identified a direct cellular interaction between the nervous system and the immune system. Pain sensing neurons around the lymph nodes can modulate lymph node activity.
Genetics and microenvironment influence the frequency of glioblastoma cells. Researchers provide a new blueprint for glioblastoma, integrating the malignant cell programs, cancer cell plasticity, and modulation by genetic drivers. The findings shed light on why this form of cancer is so hard to treat effectively.
A new study compares genetic influences in families of children diagnosed with autism.
