Elevated plasma methylmalonic acid predicts increased risk of cardiovascular events

Fri, 02/03/2023 - 19:31
A recent study from UiB shows that elevated plasma methylmalonic acid predicts increased risk of acute myocardial infarction and mortality in patients with suspected or verified coronary heart disease.

Penn scientists discover a cellular pathway that keeps Ebola virus from exiting human cells

Fri, 02/03/2023 - 18:08
In their evolutionary battle for survival, viruses have developed strategies to spark and perpetuate infection. Once inside a host cell, the Ebola virus, for example, hijacks molecular pathways to replicate itself and eventually make its way back out of the cell into the bloodstream, where it can spread further.

Experimental vaccine completely protects cynomolgus macaques against lethal Sudan virus

Fri, 02/03/2023 - 17:54
