Study warns of further damage to the body from deep space travel.

New research suggests that venturing beyond Earth’s protective atmosphere could damage astronauts gastrointestinal tracts, after other studies showed the harm it causes to astronauts’ eyes, muscles, hearts and immune systems. Deep space travel has been shown to harm astronauts’ eyes, muscles, hearts and immune systems. Now, new animal research suggests that venturing beyond Earth’s protective…

The medicine of the future against infection and inflammation?

Why men might recover from flu faster than women

Male mice infected with influenza produce more amphiregulin, a growth factor protein that promotes lung healing. Men may recover more quickly from influenza infections because they produce more of a key lung-healing protein, a study from scientists at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health suggests.   The scientists, whose findings are published online in…
