Genetically manipulating protein level in colon cancer cells can improve chemotherapy

Colorectal cancer outcomes may improve by genetically altering an immune-regulatory protein in cancer cells, making the cells more vulnerable to chemotherapy. That’s according to new Mayo Clinic research. The findings, published this month in Oncogene, indicate that increasing the expression of the PD-L1 protein in colorectal cancer cells can improve Continue Reading

Team first to grow genetically engineered mini livers to study disease and therapeutics

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine are the first to grow genetically modified miniature human livers in the laboratory, to emulate human liver disease progression and test therapeutics. In a proof-of-concept paper published today in Cell Metabolism, Pitt researchers chronicle how they transformed genetically engineered human cells Continue Reading

Genetically engineered “golden rice” suffers “metabolic meltdown” and devastating yield plunge as GE technology goes horribly wrong

Supporters of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have long claimed that Golden Rice is key in alleviating vitamin A deficiency, but it turns out that’s not at all the case. According to a new report by Indian researchers, the genes necessary to produce Golden Rice cause unintended side effects, Independent Science Continue Reading

What could go wrong? Genetically modified mosquitoes to swarm Houston in latest Zika hoax lunacy

As Natural News founder/editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, has extensively reported, the Zika virus scare in which the mosquito-borne sickness was blamed for a rash of microcephalis among newborns, particularly in Brazil, was a manufactured hoax. But that isn’t stopping U.S. officials from perpetuating the myth that a) it’s Continue Reading
