Scientists sneak Alzheimer medicine into the brain
Scientists have succeeded in creating molecules that can escort Alzheimer's medicine through the impervious sheath that separates blood vessels from neurons and safely into the brain. According to a Danish PhD student involved in the study, the method can also be used in treating other diseases.
Cancer cells on a mission to the ISS
As part of an international project, a Danish professor will soon be sending a batch of thyroid cancer cells out into space. The aim is to figure out why the absence of gravity inhibits the growth of thyroid cancer cells, and to examine the cells’ ability to produce and secrete proteins that can open up new possibilities for cancer treatment.
