  • Melatonin boost a key to fighting breast cancer
    Melatonin, a hormone produced in the human brain, appears to suppress the growth of breast cancer tumors. While treatments based on this new, key discovery are still years away, the results give scientists a key foundation on which to build future research.

  • Steroid treatments with fewer side effects?
    An improved therapy to replace essential steroids in the body is a step closer thanks to new research. The treatment could help people unable to produce a class of steroids called corticosteroids, which are involved in physiological processes including regulating metabolism and blood pressure, and helping the body to cope with physical stress. The therapy for people with adrenal gland disorders is expected to have fewer side effects than existing treatments.
