IVF children risks in the rise The possible negative effects of assisted reproduction techniques (see HERE), for mother and child, must be informed by Clinics to their eventual clients. According to an article, supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation, the Placide Nicod...

Understanding the biological mechanisms of aging. Aging retardation is achieved in mice

A biological topic of great interest is to understand the mechanisms of aging. The nervous system is known to clearly affect aging, especially the hypothalamus, but the mechanism by which it occurs is presently unknown. Cells that had been genetically engineered to survive in the...
