The genes that influence the risk of developing schizophrenia appear to be the same genes that affect the thickness and size of the surface of the brain.
A new vaccine against tuberculosis may also be used as treatment. The vaccine is safe to give to people with tuberculosis disease and strengthens the immune system's ability to attack the bacteria that cause the disease, a new study shows.
The immune system stores enormous amounts of health and disease-relevant information. Researchers are attempting to decipher this information with the help of artificial intelligence, with the aim to develop novel diagnostic and therapeutic methods.
Artificial intelligence and the cell's self-cleansing system are the keys behind the novel medication. The treatment may strengthen other organs as well.
We can prevent and treat liver diseases. New treatments are entering clinical practice. However, the treatment does not always reach the patients.
Some do well after cardiac arrest, while others get serious injuries and lose their lives. The innate immune system turns out to be part of the explanation.
Unfinished DNA repair contributes to the damage and age-related loss of neurons. However, it might be possible to protect the nerve cells, which may have implications for the prevention of Parkinson’s disease.
Impaired heart function does not seem to be the reason why it takes a long time for some to recover after undergoing COVID-19.
Using MRI images, the researchers were able to see that patients who developed cognitive impairment, had changes in the brain that had occurred before the stroke.
Influenza is a well-known trigger for heart disease. Strict measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus may have contributed to less influenza, and thus fewer admissions for heart disease.
It is not necessary to tailor the medication doses to patients, at thestart of treatment, for patients to have a good effect. This is shown by a new Norwegian study led by Professor Espen A. Haavardsholm.
Protein in the blood did not have the function researchers believed in the interaction between two of the body's defence systems. Professor Tom Eirik Mollnes and colleagues thereby changed an established truth.
The findings may be important for future prevention and treatment, and are an important step towards more knowledge about the causes of bipolar disorder.
The technology, consisting of a designed variant of a natural occurring protein called super albumin, can pave the way for the development of long-acting drugs. This can have major implications for individuals suffering from haemophilia.
Health care personnel who contributed to the rescue work after the 22 July 2011 terror attacks had better mental health a year later than individuals who contributed as volunteers.
Those who had tumours removed from their livers with keyhole surgery had fewer complications, a better quality of life and similar long-term oncologic outcomes, a new PhD thesis shows.
The research method enables us to avoid ethical challenges in studies on mothers and children.
New findings could accelerate "on-demand" production of antibody-based drugs and vaccines.
A new study provides new insights into the curative effects of gluten-free diets in coeliac patients. Results from the proteomics-based research suggests not.
Insight into cancer cells' own first aid could help the development of a new type of treatment. Johanna Olweus and her team at the UiO (University of Oslo) and the OUS (Oslo University Hospital) are important contributors to this study, which has been published in Nature.
In many countries there are long waiting lists to get a new liver. The solution is to use older donors, says Trygve Thorsen in his thesis.
Immune cells at the centre of coeliac disease have been found in patients with other autoimmune diseases. These results give hope of finding the cause of a number of diseases.
A new treatment for gout lowers the urinary acid level in the body. This can protect podagra patients against new outbreaks.
Researchers at the University of Oslo (UiO) could be close to a breakthrough in the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease.
The goal is to develop a digital lifestyle coach that can help you change unhealthy habits.
