Antibodies in your body help fight disease by specifically targeting a viral or bacterial strain. This specificity makes antibodies useful for disease detection, but how do scientists reduce the chance of false positives and false negatives?
As nanotechnology is developed into drugs for human health, scientists need to study nanoparticle clearance rates from the body.
DNA is the instruction manual for how to produce an organism, one gene at a time. But our heart cells, liver cells, and brain cells are different, despite having the same DNA, thanks in part to the “epigenetic” modifications that control which genes are expressed.
DNA can be more than just the genetic code. Can four specially designed strands of DNA destroy cancer cells?
It turns out that people with lung cancer may breathe out different molecules than people without. Scientists are figuring out which molecules to look for to diagnose cancer!
