An early-stage study has found a strain of the common cold virus can effectively target and destroy bladder cancer cells. This phase 1 human trial suggests the virus directly induces tumor cell death, and if verified by larger trials could be used in conjunction with other novel immunotherapy treatments...

A genetically modified fungus designed to safely reduce malaria-spreading mosquito populations has, for the first time, been successfully tested outside of laboratory conditions in a simulated village environment in Burkina Faso, West Africa. The trial decimated the target mosquito population in only 45 days paving the way for more trials in open environments... Continue Reading Geneticall
Like all forms of the disease, an early diagnosis of lung cancer can greatly improve a patient's chance of survival but, like all cancers this is much easier said than done. A Google research initiative aimed at harnessing artificial intelligence to better model and predict lung cancer has shown promise in a newly published study, with the technology even outperforming certified radiologis
In a fascinating first-of-its-kind study, researchers have discovered diets composed of ultra-processed foods lead to overeating and weight gain when compared to diets composed of unprocessed foods. Both diets contained the same amounts of nutrients such as sugars and fats, leading to a hypothesis suggesting something else in the ultra-processed food engendered overeating and weight gain..
Researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston are reporting mixed results from the first human trial investigating the effects of fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) to treat obesity.
