In studies, Danish researchers have shown that healthy 60–70-year-olds have a much better ability to repair muscle damage and build up muscle than scientists have previously assumed.  Your hair turns grey and wrinkles start to appear. That’s what it’s like to grow old. Full stop. The good news is, however, that the ravages of time...
The Lundbeck Foundation has decided to earmark DKK 30 million for research projects targeting the current coronavirus pandemic. We are doing so because of the highly exceptional and acute situation in which society finds itself. Focused efforts are required from all social stakeholders, and this includes the research-funding commercial foundations. ‘In the view of the...
This method could lead to a transformation of the screening programmes for cervical cancer offered to Danish women today. What is the most effective way of detecting precancerous cervical cells? Looking at a cell sample – a smear – under a microscope, like we do today in Denmark and many other countries? Or screening the...
A Danish research project funded by the Lundbeck Foundation aims to develop a brand-new treatment for brain cancer. According to the plan, the patient trials will begin over the course of the next six years. Every year, around 300 Danes, including 30 children, are diagnosed with glioblastoma – a malignant type of brain cancer that...
Researchers from Denmark, Australia and the USA are the brains behind the discovery, and the Lundbeck Foundation provided funding. Most moles are harmless, and non-cancerous. Unfortunately, however, there are exceptions, and the mole turns cancerous. In such cases, it is important to act fast to prevent the disease from spreading. One of the questions doctors...
We can use this discovery to gain a better understanding of how asthma develops. An asthma sufferer is actually a patient before he or she even receives a diagnosis. This is the finding of a Danish research project which was recently published as an article in the influential scientific journal Science Translational Medicine. The project...
New Danish study demonstrates that some dog allergy sufferers only react to male dogs. ‘We’re NEVER getting a dog!’ claim many families that struggle with asthma and allergies. And this may seem like a thoroughly sensible decision. In principle, a dog is not the allergy sufferer’s best friend, and many suffer badly when in the...
A Danish research project aims to show whether women wishing to become pregnant should stay away from painkillers such as paracetamol, ibuprofen and codeine. It is hoped that trials with fertilised eggs from mice and humans will help us understand whether headache medication plays a role when pregnancies terminate spontaneously in the early stages. ‘We...
The aim of a collaboration between researchers in Denmark and the USA is to glean new knowledge about the many different types of neurons that make the human brain work. It could have implications for the design of drugs for conditions such as dementia and for rehabilitation of patients after a stroke. The project is...
