https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/12/161230103209.htm Biologist's ant research provides long-term look at effects of climate changeMany scientists have attempted to tackle how climate change will affect the natural world by determining the thermal tolerance of various species, then predicting what will happen to them as our world warms.

Over 10% af disse mennesker mente, at deres værste trip havde givet skade for dem selv eller andre, og mange af disse anså deres mest belastende episode som en af deres mest belastende oplevelser i livet.

En af hovedårsagerne til at kræft er vanskeligt at behandle er, at kræftceller har udviklet talrige mekanismer, som gør det muligt for dem at undgå at blive nedbrudt af immunsystemet. En af disse mekanismer omfatter MDSC-celler, nemlig myeloid-afledte hæmmerceller (myeloid-derived suppressor cells). Ny forskning har givet ny indsigt i, hvordan MDSC-celler gør det muligt for kræftceller at omgå immunangreb.

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/12/161230103216.htm Role for immune cells in cancer’s ability to evade immunotherapyOne of the main reasons cancer remains difficult to treat is that cancer cells have developed a multitude of mechanisms that allow them to evade destruction by the immune system. One of these escape mechanisms involves a type of immune cell called myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs). A recent study provides new insight into how MDSCs enable tumor cells to circumvent immune attack and offer th Man kan i livmodervæske påvise mutationer, som er relateret til livmoder-kræft (endometrie-cancer) før denne kræft kan diagnosticeres.
