Cancer drug stimulates tripolar mode of mitosis

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) Taxanes inhibit cell division and make cancer cells sensitive to radiation therapy. A current study has investigated the underlying mechanisms of this action - and which biomarkers may be useful for predicting the success of therapy. Show More Summary

Immune cells help fat deal with environmental challenges

Immunosuppressive regulatory T-cells play an important role in the functioning of adipose tissue. This is the discovery of scientists from the Helmholtz Diabetes Center (HDC) at Helmholtz Zentrum München and the Technical University of Munich (TUM). Their findings are published in the journal Cell Metabolism.

Algorithm reconstructs processes from individual images

Researchers at the Helmholtz Zentrum München have developed a new method for reconstructing continuous biological processes, such as disease progression, using image data. The study was published in Nature Communications.

Repetitive elements shape embryonic chromatin landscape

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) Retrotransposons are repetitive elements that form almost half of the mammalian genome. Even though they are so common, they have previously been considered to be fairly insignificant. Show More Summary

Long-term diabetes complication: Liver inflammation raises cholesterol levels

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) Inflammatory processes in the liver lead to elevated cholesterol levels in people with diabetes, thus promoting subsequent vascular diseases. This is the result...Show More Summary

Cell aging in lung epithelial cells

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) Pulmonary fibrosis can possibly be attributed to a kind of cellular aging process, which is called senescence. This has been shown by researchers from the Helmholtz Zentrum München, partner in the German Center for Lung Research. Show More Summary

COPD -- changes in the lungs, changes in the microbiome

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) can result in structural changes within the lungs over time. Scientists at the Helmholtz Zentrum München have now been able to show that these changes not only affect the organ itself, but also the bacteria that live in the lung. Show More Summary

Well-being in later life: The mind plays an important role

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) Well-being in later life is largely dependent on psychosocial factors. Physical impairments tend to play a secondary role, as scientists at the Helmholtz Zentrum München and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have discovered. The results of their recent study are published in BMC Geriatrics.

Infections in early life associated with increased risk for Celiac disease

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) Infections during infancy are associated with increased risk for gluten intolerance (celiac disease) later on. Apparently the risk is particularly high in the case of repeated gastrointestinal infections in the first year of life. Show More Summary

New approach in T-cell therapy to treat cancer

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) Scientists have armed immune cells with a new surface molecule. This causes the cells to respond particularly aggressively when they encounter a protein that tumors actually use to camouflage themselves from the immune system. Show More Summary

Metabolism: Beta cells under fire

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) Type 2 diabetes causes pathological changes in the beta cells. Scientists have successfully depicted the processes on the basis of the metabolome and proteome for the first time. Their work has been published in Cell Metabolism.

ERC Starting Grant for allergy research in the gut

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) The European Research Council (ERC) will be funding the ALLERGUT project at the Helmholtz Zentrum München for the next five years with an ERC Starting Grant. Show More Summary

Handheld scanner reveals vascularization in psoriasis patients

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) A newly developed tissue scanner allows looking under the skin of psoriasis patients. This provides clinically relevant information, such as the structure of skin layers and blood vessels, without the need for contrast agents or radiation exposure. Show More Summary

How cancer cells flood the lung

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) Lung cancer patients are particularly susceptible to malignant pleural effusion, when fluid collects in the space between the lungs and the chest wall. Researchers...Show More Summary

Immunotherapy against bee stings in some cases incomplete

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) The preparations that are used for allergen immunotherapy against bee sting allergies do not always contain all the relevant venom components. This was the...Show More Summary

The swollen colon -- cause of chronic inflammation discovered

(Johannes Gutenberg Universitaet Mainz) Researchers at the University Medical Center of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz and the German Research Center for Environmental Health, Helmholtz Zentrum München have discovered that too much of the oncogene Bcl-3 leads to chronic intestinal diseases.

A close look into the barley genome

(Helmholtz Zentrum München - German Research Center for Environmental Health) An international consortium, with the participation of the Helmholtz Zentrum München, Plant Genome and Systems Biology Department (PGSB), has published methodologically significant data on the barley genome.
