In trials with rats, scientists at Aarhus University have confirmed a theory that it is likely that many cases of Parkinson’s disease start in the gut. A cohort of lab rats, which were genetically manipulated and programmed to produce extremely large amounts of the protein alpha-synuclein, are the main protagonists in a research article on...
Scientists at Aarhus University are in the process of developing a new type of adhesive to glue together human tissue. It’s all about building a variety of the chemical tricks already mastered by mussels into man-made materials. A surgeon has completed surgery: whatever needed to be removed or corrected has been attended to, and the...
Experiences gained by doctors in this field may also have a positive impact on other types of surgery. It is no longer uncommon to see the elderly leaving hospital for home only a few days after they have been given a new knee or hip. A new scientific study, recently published in the Danish Medical...
It’s a well-known fact that the old and the sick are particularly susceptible to influenza. But why does the flu cause such havoc in apparently fit and healthy people that they – even the young – can die from it? This question has been puzzling medical science for many years, and eight researchers from Aarhus...
Researchers at the University of Copenhagen are the first in the world to genetically engineer human cells to construct a detailed picture of the battle plan bacteria and viruses deploy when they make us ill. This discovery may lead to new therapies, eliminating the need for antibiotics. Bacteria and viruses have a sweet tooth! It’s...
Scientific report indicates that more research is needed into how general practitioners examine for and treat throat infections. Both to help prevent life-threatening bacterial invasion and to keep track on use of antibiotics. General practitioners in Denmark conduct a total of 1.2 million examinations for throat infection every year, which means that one in five...
A population that built houses from tusks of the woolly mammoth and created exquisite tools has suddenly come to light. DNA from this population will also be included in a study of the genetic composition of brain diseases and mental disorders. ‘Well, hello! There you are,’ exclaimed researchers at the Lundbeck Foundation GeoGenetics Centre at...
A Danish-Italian team of scientists has demonstrated that passing even weak electrical currents through the brain can trigger unexpected reactions. All over the world, people with no medical background are experimenting with electrical brain stimulation: They are attaching electrodes to their head and hook it up to the direct current in the hopes of improving...
Scientists at Rigshospitalet, University of Copenhagen, are conducting experiments in an effort to identify a biological ‘fingerprint’ for migraines. The substance sildenafil – the primary component in Viagra – is commonly administered to treat erectile dysfunction. However sildenafil also happens to have other creative applications, and the substance is now being used in an experiment...
Danish and Costa Rican scientists are the first to test snake venom with the help of synthetic human proteins. The project has been carried out with funding from the Lundbeck Foundation. If you want to resist an attack from a powerful opponent, it helps to know what weapon they use. The better you understand their...
