A new study shows potential mechanisms leading to the activation of a mutated gene in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease.
Northwestern Medicine scientists co-authored a study that identified a blood cell not normally found in the healthy brain that can invade brain tissue after status epilepticus, a type of seizure, and contributes to inflammation.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have received a $7.5 million grant to study how genetic information from African American patients can predict their responses to medications.
New Northwestern Medicine research has shown that reprogrammed stem cells can be used to identify patients with cancer who are likely to experience a dangerous side effect of a common chemotherapy drug.
In a new study, patients treated with one-fourth of the dose of beta-blockers tested in large clinical trials had a 20 to 25 percent increase in survival, indicating that dosing likely needs to be personalized for patients to get the best benefit.
A trail of messenger molecules left behind by general immune system cells called neutrophils helps virus-specific T-cells reach tissues infected by influenza, reports a new study published in Science.
