Novel method for identification of atherosclerosis biomarkers

Atherosclerosis can be developed for decades without any symptoms and when the disease becomes unstable myocardial infarction or stroke can be the first signs of the disease. Clinical tools like blood tests and image diagnostics are therefore required to improve prevention of myocardial infarction and stroke. In a study involving several researchers at SciLifeLab as well as […]

Loss of sleep alters metabolism and body composition

An international research team involving researchers from Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm University, Uppsala University and SciLifeLab have shown that one nights loss of sleep affects tissue metabolism and the regulation of gene expression in humans. These results published in Science Advances, might explain how chronic loss of sleep can promote weight gain and loss of skeletal muscle […]
