New test method can offer safer dosages of hydroxychloroquine

Press releases   •   Jun 01, 2020 01:00 BST

Researchers at Uppsala University and Uppsala University Hospital have developed a new method to measure levels of the medication hydroxychloroquine in patients with the rheumatic disease systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The analysis method may also be useful in other areas, such as in the treatment of COVID-19. The study is being published in Arthritis Research and Therapy.

Cold-adapted enzymes can transform at room temperature

Press releases   •   May 26, 2020 10:00 BST

Enzymes from cold-loving organisms that live at low temperatures, close to the freezing point of water, display highly distinctive properties. In a new study published in Nature Communications, scientists at Uppsala University have used large-scale computations to explain why many cold-adapted enzymes stop functioning at around room temperature.

Advanced X-ray technology tells us more about Ménière's disease

Press releases   •   May 20, 2020 08:00 BST

The organ of balance in the inner ear is surrounded by the hardest bone in the body. Using synchrotron X-rays, researchers at Uppsala University have discovered a drainage system that may be assumed to play a major role in the onset of Ménière's disease, a common and troublesome disorder. These results are published in the journal Scientific Reports.

Carl Linnaeus’s household laid the foundation for his scientific work

Carl Linnaeus’s household laid the foundation for his scientific work

Press releases   •   May 20, 2020 07:00 BST

Without a wife and a well-functioning household, Carl Linnaeus would have had difficulty becoming the prominent scientist that he was. Mastering social codes, like clothing and hosting guests for dinners, was crucial for having a career in the 18th century. These are the conclusions of a recently defended thesis at Uppsala University.

​Treatment no better in clinical trials

​Treatment no better in clinical trials

Press releases   •   May 11, 2020 10:51 BST

Patients taking part in clinical trials do not receive better treatment than other patients. This is the conclusion of a new study led from Uppsala University and published in peer-reviewed journal BMC Cancer, which confirms the results of an earlier study from 2004.

How gene flow between species influences the evolution of Darwin’s finches

How gene flow between species influences the evolution of Darwin’s finches

Press releases   •   May 04, 2020 15:42 BST

Despite the traditional view that species do not exchange genes by hybridisation, recent studies show that gene flow between closely related species is more common than previously thought. A team of scientists from Uppsala University and Princeton University now reports how gene flow between two species of Darwin’s finches has affected their beak morphology.

AI - a New Tool for Cardiac Diagnostics

Press releases   •   May 04, 2020 13:24 BST

Artificial intelligence (AI) may be an aid to interpreting ECG results, helping healthcare staff to diagnose diseases that affect the heart. Researchers at Uppsala University and heart specialists in Brazil have developed an AI that automatically diagnoses atrial fibrillation and five other common ECG abnormalities just as well as a cardiologist.

Lymphatic vessels in mice and humans: alike yet different

Press releases   •   May 04, 2020 12:23 BST

In an international collaboration, researchers from Uppsala University have mapped the lymph node lymphatic vessels in mice and humans down to the level of individual cells. The results may eventually help scientists to discover new methods for strengthening the immune system against viruses and cancer. Their work has been published in the journal Frontiers of Cardiovascular Research.

Large differences in personality traits between patients with social anxiety disorder

Large differences in personality traits between patients with social anxiety disorder

Press releases   •   Apr 29, 2020 19:00 BST

Individuals with social anxiety disorder have markedly different personality traits than others. Emotional instability and introversion are hallmarks, according to a new study from Uppsala University published in PLOS ONE.

New study takes the pulse of a sleeping supervolcano

New study takes the pulse of a sleeping supervolcano

Press releases   •   Apr 23, 2020 13:09 BST

Under the volcanoes in the Central Andes there is a gigantic reservoir of molten magma. For several million years, it has been there without fully solidifying or causing a supervolcanic eruption. Geologists have long wondered how this is possible. Researchers from Uppsala University, among others, have now discovered that the secret may be hidden tributaries of hot magma from inside the Earth.

Type 2 diabetes: Too much glucagon when α-cells become insulin resistant

Press releases   •   Apr 20, 2020 14:35 BST

Patients with type 2 diabetes secrete not only too little insulin but also too much glucagon, which contributes to poor blood glucose control. A new study from Uppsala University suggests that this is because the glucagon-secreting α-cells have become resistant to insulin.

2020 Skytte Prize to Peter J. Katzenstein

Press releases   •   Apr 09, 2020 06:10 BST

Peter J. Katzenstein, Cornell University, USA, has been named the 26th recipient of the Johan Skytte Prize in Political Science. He is awarded the prize for “furthering the understanding of how history, culture, and norms shape economies, as well as national and global security policy”.

Ear’s inner secrets revealed with new technology

Press releases   •   Apr 08, 2020 12:59 BST

What does it actually look like deep inside our ears? This is has been very difficult to study as the inner ear is protected by the hardest bone in the body. But together with Canadian colleagues, researchers from Uppsala University have now used synchrotron X-rays to map the blood vessels of the inner ear three-dimensionally.

An antibiotic masquerading as a natural compound in the Giant Madeiran Squill

An antibiotic masquerading as a natural compound in the Giant Madeiran Squill

Press releases   •   Apr 03, 2020 10:51 BST

A previous study has shown that a type of squill growing in Madeira produces a chemical compound that may be useful as a medicinal drug. But a new study from researchers at Uppsala University has shown that this is probably not true: instead, the plant had likely accumulated antibiotics from contaminated soil.

An All-Organic Proton Battery Energised for Sustainable Energy Storage

Press releases   •   Mar 31, 2020 13:34 BST

Sustainable energy storage is in great demand. Researchers at Uppsala University have therefore developed an all-organic proton battery that can be charged in a matter of seconds. The battery can be charged and discharged over 500 times without any significant loss of capacity. Their work has been published in the scientific journal Angewandte Chemie.

Changes in cellular degradation hubs can lead to cancer

Press releases   •   Mar 17, 2020 10:00 GMT

Cancer cells grow and divide in an uncontrolled manner. A new study from Uppsala University now shows how alterations in a cell’s degradation hubs, called lysosomes, can cause abnormal cell growth. The results are published today in the scientific journal Nature Communications.

Love rivals risk having offspring with a greater number of harmful mutations

Press releases   •   Mar 16, 2020 16:00 GMT

Males that face tougher competition for females risk having offspring with a greater number of harmful mutations in their genome than males without rivals. Researchers at Uppsala University have discovered this correlation in the beetle species Callosobruchus maculatus. Their study is published in the scientific journal Nature Ecology & Evolution.

Careless cancer cells may be susceptible to future drugs

Press releases   •   Mar 11, 2020 10:00 GMT

Could the ability of cancer cells to quickly alter their genome be used as a weapon against malignant tumours? Researchers at Uppsala University have succeeded in developing a substance that has demonstrated promising results in experiments on both animal models and human cancer cells. The study is published in the journal Nature Communications.
