We performed a GWAS for lung function with adjustment for exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) levels to account for type 2 airway inflammation. Our study identified the genetic locus most strongly associated with airway obstruction in the Japanese population and new genetic loci associated with FeNO.
In a recent clinical trial, patients who had chronic spontaneous urticaria (CSU) for more than 6 months that would not respond to high doses of standard treatment (H1-antihistamines) – were enrolled to evaluate a “BTK blocker” drug, called, "fenebrutinib".

Restricting calorie intake extend lifespan and healthspan of many species, but the mechanism of how calorie restriction functions remains unclear. We show that prolonged fasting between meals imposed by such regimens may play a critical role in the benefits of reduced calorie diets.
Puncture wounds and how platelet leads to bleeding cessation is not normally thought of as problem in cell and developmental biology. Here a team trained in physics and biochemistry take exactly that approach to thrombus structure and how that leads to bleeding cessation in ta jugular wound.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues there is an ever-present risk of more variants of concern (VOCs) arising. These VOCs may have beneficial mutations aiding their spread. We used three mathematical models to examine the potential drivers of SARS-CoV-2 VOC epidemics in England.
