The sugar coating on cancer cells helps them thrive, and a new study indicates patients with cervical cancer who make antibodies to those sugars appear to do better when they also receive internal radiation therapy.
High glucose in obesity appears to gum up the works of the circadian clocks inside our cells that help regulate the timing of many body functions across the 24-hour day and drive the risk of cardiovascular disease, scientists say.
Scientists at MCG are looking at how neural activity drives blood flow increases and how important the increases are for the health and proper functioning of neurons. Benefits of better understanding could include better interpreting results of...
MCG scientists have discovered the chronic activation of the Adora2a receptor is one way obesity and insulin resistance break down one of the the brain's protections against memory loss and confusion.
A synthetic peptide disrupts the destructive inflammation that occurs in nephritis, enabling the kidneys to better recover and maintain function.
David L. Mattson, an established hypertension investigator and academic leader at the Medical College of Wisconsin, will join the MCG leadership team July 1.
Dr. Satish S.C. Rao is helping lead a federally funded initiative that will provide the first head-to-head comparison of the benefits, side effects and costs of three Food and Drug Administration-approved treatments already in regular use.
Scientists at MCG are studying ways to improve cognition and reduce weight gain in patients with schizophrenia.
Scientists find first evidence in humans that the innate system that enables us to flee danger may itself be dangerous to our cardiovascular health.
Through Medical Scholars Research Day, students are given more opportunities to participate in clinical and translational research.
A family of cytokines or proteins secreted by immune cells become essential to recover our sense of taste after trauma.
Investigators report a manmade antibody delivering a drug that inhibits inflammation can reverse a disease course that often leads to kidney failure.
Scientists explore how high blood pressure hurts cognition.
Oxidative stress can help tumors thrive, but one way novel cancer treatments work is by pushing levels to the point where it instead helps them die, scientists report.
Silence is golden when it comes to how our brains work
AUGUSTA, Ga. (June 6, 2018) – Immune cells that are first responders to a traumatic brain injury appear to also contribute to the secondary damage that can occur even days later, scientists say. The NETs – or neutrophil extracellular traps – these...
Dr. Laura Carbone and Dr. Carlos Isales are the newest J. Harold Harrison, M.D., Distinguished University Chairs at the Medical College of Georgia.
A new and early target for treating pulmonary hypertension appears to be an enzyme that’s normally key to energy production but destructive in the face of this high blood pressure inside your lungs.
AUGUSTA, Ga. – A receptor on our immune cells that can detect both the heat of a red chili pepper and the extreme physical heat of a pizza oven may help protect the brain following a traumatic brain injury, scientists say. A third of patients...
When you have diabetes then get an acute kidney injury there is a multiplier effect that can worsen your prognosis and destroy your kidneys. Now, scientists think they know why.
