Inflammation is the process by which the body responds to injury or infection but when this process becomes out of control it can cause disease. Researchers have shed light on a key aspect of the process. Their findings may help guide the development of new treatments of inflammatory diseases such as atherosclerosis, which can lead to heart attack or stroke, and type 2 diabetes.

Microbes seen controlling action of host's genes
Microbes can control their animal hosts by manipulating the molecular machinery of their cells, triggering patterns of gene expression that consequently contribute to health and disease, new research shows. The work, which was conducted in zebrafish and mice cells, could have implications for human inflammatory bowel diseases like Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

First long-term stabile brain implant developed based on an anti-inflammatory coating
Complex neurotechnological devices are required to directly select and influence brain waves inside the skull’s interior. Although it has become relatively easy to implement the devices, researchers are still faced with challenges when trying to keep them running properly in living organisms over time. But that could be changing now, thanks to a new method. A research team was able to create a microprobe that grows into the neural tissue without inflammation and with the help of a medicinal coa...
