Possible treatment for kidney disease in lupus
In the U.S. alone, more than 1.5 million people have lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease in which the immune system turns against itself, attacking a person’s healthy tissue, cells and organs.

Adaptor protein role in diabetes, cancer treatment…
A protein known to be part of a complex communications network within the cell has also been found to be associated with important processes involved in cancer and diabetes. In a study that will be published Feb. 18 in Science Signaling, researchers identified a new role for the adaptor protein p66Shc in controlling glucose metabolism and cell growth, two processes that are highly regulated in our cells. When disruptions in…
