LMNA-related congenital muscular dystrophy (L-CMD) is a rare disorder predominantly causing muscle weakness and wasting, over time, leading to development of dysphagia and life-threating respiratory insufficiency, and sometimes cardiac arrhythmias. T... Read More about Characterising the molecular consequences of LMNA mutations in congenital muscular dystrophy.
Cancer incidence rates are increasing world-wide including in the UK. An increase in cancer cases puts further pressure on pathology departments that are often already struggling to meet targets to diagnose cancers in a timely manner. Delays in diagn...

Telomeres are guanine-rich 5'-TTAGGG-3' repeats found at the ends of human chromosomes that protect chromosomes from degradation and also provide stabilization. Telomerase macromolecule is the primary enzyme responsible for telomere elongation. Telom... Read More about Determining the role of epigenetics in telomerase regulation.
Remote control healing for osteoarthritis repair (2022)
Articular cartilage is a key tissue for the normal functioning of the joints, with a trend for degradation with aging and physical activity. The lack of vascularisation hinders the self-repair, and often a scar tissue replaces the damaged cartilage,... Read More about Remote control healing for osteoarthritis repair.
In England, community pharmacies provide services commissioned either nationally or locally. Local commissioning exhibits variation in specification and implementation, exemplified by Emergency Hormonal Contraception (EHC) services. A literature revi...

Phenotypic characterization of regional human meniscus progenitor cells. (2022)
Stimulating meniscus regeneration using meniscal progenitor cells has been suggested as a promising new strategy. However, there is a lack of studies which decisively identify and characterize progenitor cell populations in human meniscus tissues. In...

A clinical pharmacists role in primary general practice (2022)
Clinical pharmacist leaders are valued by the NHS because they are well educated, demonstrating excellent analytical and evidence-based thinking skills and professional competency. This reliability often stems from seeing the pharmacy team accepting... Read More about A clinical pharmacists role in primary general practice.
Wnt signaling plays an important role in embryogenesis and adult stem cell homeostasis. Its diminished activation is implicated in osteoporosis and degenerative neural diseases. However, systematic administration of Wnt-signaling agonists carries ris...
