Using an array of tiny needles that are almost too small to see, researchers have developed a minimally-invasive technique for sampling a largely-unexplored human bodily fluid that could potentially provide a new source of information for routine clinical monitoring and diagnostic testing.
Physicians and scientists at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center used new stem cell technology to regenerate and study living patient-specific skin in the lab, giving them a precise close up view of how inherited DNA defects cause skin damage and deadly squamous cell carcinoma in children and young adults with Fanconi anemia (FA).
A new study from researchers at the University of California, Davis, finds eating Ataulfo mangoes, also known as honey or Champagne mangoes, may reduce facial wrinkles in older women with fairer skin. But too much mango may increase wrinkles.
How do we shrink persistent racial health disparities, especially among children? Dell Medical School's Elizabeth Matsui says it starts by applying an antiracist blueprint to guide the way we fund, evaluate and disseminate research.
New research from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center found immunotherapies effective against lung cancer and melanoma may work against cutaneous angiosarcoma, a rare, highly aggressive skin tumor found primarily on the scalps of older White people. The researchers report tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes and the surface protein markers PD-1 and PD-L1 could help guide the choice of immunotherapy to fight cutaneous angiosarcomas.
This could be used in treating skin diseases such as atopic dermatitis and epidermolysis bullosa, as well as in the fields of cosmetics and nutrition
A vaccine created to prevent the recurrence of the deadly skin cancer melanoma is about twice as effective when patients also receive two components that boost the number and effectiveness of immune system cells called dendritic cells, according to phase 2 clinical trial results published in Nature Cancer in November.
The Virginia Tech Nature-Inspired Fluids and Interfaces Lab, led by Associate Profesor Jonathan Boreyko, has just made a major breakthrough in the study of natural antiperspirants.
A University of Cincinnati fellow presents a COVID-19 related case study during the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) scientific meeting held November 13-15.
A presentation at this year's virtual American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) Annual Scientific Meeting reveals the disparities that exist for Black and Hispanic children when it comes to Atopic Dermatitis (AD), commonly known as eczema.
