Animal Study: Histamine-Related Inflammation Linked to Depression

histamine and depression

The findings, from researchers at Imperial College London and University of South Carolina, add to mounting evidence that inflammation, and the accompanying release of the molecule histamine, affects a key molecule responsible for mood in the brain — serotonin. If replicated in humans, the findings — which identify histamine asRead …

Bladder Organoids & Bladder-on-a-Chip Reveal Urinary Tract Infection Pathogensis

urinary tract infections

Scientists have developed two complementary bladder models to study urinary tract infection (UTIs) caused by E. coli: bladder organoids and a bladder-on-a- chip. The two studies reveal how bacteria invade the bladder, and how they evade the immune system and resist antibiotics. The studies, published in the journals Cell ReportsRead …
