Scientists have found what they believe is the missing link between heart failure, our genes and our environment. The study could open up completely new ways of managing and treating heart disease.
A technique for testing the peripheral vision of young children could be given a boost – thanks to the inventors putting it into the hands of Cambridge students.
Scientists from Cambridge University have discovered four rare mutations of a gene associated with type 1 diabetes (T1D) that reduce the risk of developing the disease. Their findings, published today in the journal Science, suggest a link between T1D and the enterovirus (a common virus that enters via the gastrointestinal tract but is often non-symptomatic).
The way a common virus hijacks the cell it infects could hold the clue to combating Parkinson's disease.
