Low- and moderate-intensity exercise improved muscle, heart and breathing function in an animal model of Duchenne muscular dystrophy, according to a Northwestern Medicine study.
A new Northwestern Medicine study has demonstrated that a combination of two mutations makes a form of pediatric brain tumors more deadly.
Northwestern scientists recently identified a new protein complex that is upregulated in acute myeloid leukemia, potentially explaining why current therapies are often ineffective.
A new study has uncovered a key mechanism underlying the control of a co-factor that is essential for all cells to grow and divide, and which may also play a key role in cancer cell growth.
A Northwestern Medicine study provides new insights into a signaling pathway in metastatic prostate cancer and suggests that a novel drug combination may improve treatment response and slow cancer growth.
Northwestern Medicine scientists have demonstrated that a specific mitochondrial protein complex is essential to the immunosuppressive activity of regulatory T-cells.
