Muscle wasting severity linked to type, size and location of tumor in mice — ScienceDaily

About 80% of people with cancer suffer from significant muscle wasting, or loss of muscle tissue, and 30% of these patients die from this condition. New research in mice finds…

Studies in mice suggest circuitry role for missing gene — ScienceDaily

Part of understanding the underlying causes of autism spectrum disorder relies on figuring out which cells’ signaling patterns in the brain are disrupted, and when during nervous system development the…

Clusters of genes help mice live longer — ScienceDaily

Researchers from the National Institute on Aging (NIA)-funded Interventions Testing Program recently reported the discovery of multiple candidate genes that influence longevity. The three Interventions Testing Program sites — The…

Fasting-mimicking diet reduces signs of dementia in mice — ScienceDaily

Cycles of a diet that mimics fasting appear to reduce signs of Alzheimer’s in mice genetically engineered to develop the illness, according to a new USC Leonard Davis School of…

New antibody shows therapeutic effects in mice with Alzheimer’s disease — ScienceDaily

A newly developed agonistic antibody reduced the amyloid pathology in mice with Alzheimer’s disease, signaling its promise as a potential treatment for the disease, according to a team of researchers…

‘Drug factory’ implants eliminate mesothelioma tumors in mice — ScienceDaily

Rice University and Baylor College of Medicine researchers have shown they can eradicate advanced-stage mesothelioma tumors in mice in just a few days with a treatment combining Rice’s cytokine “drug…

Experimental vaccine based on altered plasmid DNA produced antibody response in mice that effectively blocked cell infection across all variants of concern tested — ScienceDaily

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine, with colleagues elsewhere, describe a different way to build a COVID-19 vaccine, one that would, in theory, remain effective against…

Over the course of a month, mice taking triptan migraine drugs ate less and lost more weight than other animals — ScienceDaily

Triptans, a commonly prescribed class of migraine drugs, may also be useful in treating obesity, a new study by scientists at UT Southwestern suggests. In studies on obese mice, a…

Photoreceptor cells in mice drive vision and non-vision functions using distinct circuits in the eye — ScienceDaily

The eye’s light-sensing retina taps different circuits depending on whether it is generating image-forming vision or carrying out a non-vision function such as regulating pupil size or sleep/wake cycles, according…

Inhibition of EP2/EP4 signaling elicits anti-tumor immunity in mice — ScienceDaily

If cancerous cells started wreaking havoc in your body, like terrorists in a building, your immune system would act like a SWAT team to combat the enemy. But what if…
