  • Study targets bone health, wellbeing

    A new method to predict long-term bone health issues in people with cerebral palsy could help to improve their quality of life. An imaging technique investigated in a recent Hudson Institute study, which assesses pixel colour in X-ray images, could hold the key to identifying if a person with cerebral palsy may suffer from fragile…  Read more

  • Double trouble for tumour cells

    The discovery of how some cancer drugs can deliver a ‘double-hit’ when targeting tumour cells could lead to further advancements in treatment. A new study has challenged the long-held belief that a type of induced cell death, which is regulated by the BCL-2 family of proteins, attacks cells in only one way. The findings published…  Read more
