Are you a problem drinker? Then, statistically, you’ll also be particularly genetically prone to developing disorders such as depression and insomnia. And to becoming addicted to drugs and tobacco. This is what Danish researchers are helping to prove in a new international study. Scientists have looked at the role genes play when, year after year,...
Danish pathologists have performed the first three of a total of 300 post-mortem examinations. The objective is to provide new information about a wide range of aspects of COVID-19 over the coming months. The Lundbeck Foundation is one of the funding providers. How can we prepare as well as possible for the next pandemic? The...
A new anti-depressant inspired by psychedelics is the backbone of the small Danish pharmaceutical company Lophora. The Lundbeck Foundation provided funding for the research, which is now about to be commercialised. A team of researchers from the Department of Drug Design and Pharmacology at the University of Copenhagen is preparing to test an unprecedented type...
Danish researchers are standing by to involve hospitals in all Danish regions in testing. A Japanese drug – camostat mesylate – is on its way to Denmark. According to plan, it will be tested on a total of 180 coronavirus patients at hospitals across the country. If the Danish authorities give the necessary authorisation over...
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...
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...
