Russian scientists have revealed the work of evolutionarily new genes in tumors

A tumor is a pathological process, which is a newly formed tissue in which, due to genetic changes, cellular regulation and, accordingly, functionality are disturbed. Tumors are divided into benign and malignant. Benign grows slowly, does not metastasize, it can be removed without problems. A malignant neoplasm, or cancer, is one of the leading causes of death in the world.

Scientists have discovered that different classes of human genes have different evolutionary ages. Evolutionarily new genes that are particularly active in tumor cells can be used as a marker for cancer. This can serve as a serious impetus for the development of cancer diagnostics.

Everything is in the smoke: about the “war” around vaping

With the gradual tightening of anti-tobacco legislation in most developed countries, smokers and tobacco companies are increasingly reorienting themselves to electronic means of nicotine delivery and tobacco heating. Indicator.Ru figured out what disputes surround the new technology, what health effects its use may have, and how electronic cigarettes are still better than usual.
Since the first electronic cigarettes appeared on sale in China in 2004, their share in the market of smoking products has been increasing quite rapidly from year to year. According to data for 2018, more than 40 million people are regular users of such devices.

Magnetic nanomaterials proposed to be used in the fight against liver fibrosis

In an article published in the journal Cells, scientists from the Baltic Federal University named after I. Kant, together with colleagues from NUST “MISiS” and the Rhine-Westphalian Technical University of Aachen compared various methods of treating liver fibrosis. This disease is accompanied by the replacement of normal liver tissue with connective (scar), not able to perform the function of the affected organ. According to scientists, the use of magnetic nanomaterials in the treatment of liver diseases can be a fundamentally new approach without the disadvantages inherent in classical methods.
