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...
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...
A research project funded by the Lundbeck Foundation will analyse the health data of 2.8 million Danish mothers. The aim is to develop a kind of ‘red flag’ that will detect the onset of postpartum depression. Around 10-15% of all new mothers experience postpartum depression. It is extremely stressful for both mother and baby, partly...
