Investigators conducted a Phase Ib, placebo-controlled, randomised clinical trial of two dose levels of naproxen sodium administered daily for six months to 80 participants with Lynch syndrome (LS), and a co-clinical trial using a genetically engineered mouse model of LS and patient-derived organoids
A new US immigration policy, which threatens to revoke visas for certain international students if they are not taking in-person classes, is stirring panic and confusion and causing some universities to push back with lawsuits.
Since higher education institutions ended in-person classes in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been uncertainty over what classes will look like in the fall. Universities will soon have to come up with an answer.
Researchers demonstrated that the induction of a regulatory program in human B cells was dependent on a metabolic priming event driven by cholesterol metabolism.
The new director of the National Science Foundation (NSF), Sethuraman “Panch” Panchanathan, is familiar with the dark clouds over the agency. His boss, President Donald Trump, keeps proposing big cuts to NSF’s budget. Two recent executive orders on immigration make it harder for foreign scientists—who make up a sizeable share of the U.S. research enterprise—to enter the country.
Scientists utilized immunodeficient NOD-scid IL2rγnull (NSG) mice that carried in vivo-generated engineered human skin (ES). ES was generated from human keratinocytes and fibroblasts and was initially devoid of skin-resident immune cells.
