Diagnosis of inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis during adulthood has been linked to a 50% higher mortality rate and shorter life expectancy in those over 50. The increased risk of death remained after the introduction of therapies aimed at treating the conditions but decreased over time.
Scientist reveal a drug regiment consisting of anti-inflammatories and anti-stress medications given before and after surgery could reduce cancer recurrence.
Hepatitis C virus increases the expression of SOCS, dulling the normal immune system response to viral infections. This may explain why Hepatitis C 'hides' in the immune system, leading to a lack of diagnosis in those suffering the infection.
A new study reports six weeks of endurance exercise training has beneficial effects on gut bacteria composition. Researchers report exercise inflammation causing microbes decrease while microbes linked to enhanced metabolism increase.
Researchers report helping the immune system clear away old senescent cells in aging mice helped to restore youthful characteristics. The findings could have implications for reversing the effects of aging in humans.
Inflammation of the colon is associated with alterations in alpha-synuclein expression and phosphorylation in the myenteric plexus of common marmoset monkeys. The findings support the growing body of evidence that inflammation may play a role in the development of Parkinson's disease.
Increased kynurenic acid production has been implicated in the pathology of schizophrenia. The findings provide a new target for cell-specific treatments that help reduce the production of kynurenic acid and reduce symptoms of schizophrenia.
Embryonic damage caused by autoantibodies is implicated in a range of behavioral and psychological disorders, including schizophrenia, autism, and ADHD.
A new study reveals how blood vessels help protect the brain during inflammation. The findings could help in the development of new treatments for neurodegenerative and autoimmune diseases.
A new study sheds light on how the circadian clock controls inflammatory response. By understanding the link between inflammation and circadian rhythm, researchers believe it may be most effective to target specific conditions at certain times of the day. The findings may also explain why those who experience body clock disruptions are more susceptible to inflammatory conditions.
