Germinal stage: This stage begins at conception and lasts for about two weeks. During this time, the fertilized egg divides into many cells and implants into the lining of the uterus.
Embryonic stage: This stage lasts from about two weeks to eight weeks of pregnancy. During this time, the major organs and body systems begin to develop.
Fetal stage: This stage lasts from eight weeks of pregnancy until birth. During this time, the fetus grows and matures. The organs and body systems continue to develop, and the fetus prepares for birth.
Exciting breakthrough in cancer research! 🌟 Scientists have discovered a key link between cancer cells and replication stress, unveiling the role of Taurine Upregulated Gene 1 (TUG1). Targeting TUG1 with a drug, researchers developed TUG1-DDS, significantly controlling brain tumor growth in mice, particularly glioblastomas. Lead researcher Professor Yutaka Suzuki highlights the potential for therapeutic applications, […]
Scientists at Scripps Research have discovered a new way to fight age-related diseases. They found that a protein called DELE1 forms a cylindrical structure that is necessary to activate the cell’s integrated stress response (ISR). The ISR is a critical pathway that helps our cells maintain health, but it is impaired in many age-related diseases. […]
Ectopic thyroid cancer (ETC) is primary thyroid cancer occurring in ectopic thyroid tissue, and its incidence rate is approximately 0.3%–0.5% of thyroid cancer. Only approximately 132 cases of ETC have been diagnosed and treated worldwide in the past 110 years, with most of them being adults. What is the treatment for ectopic thyroid tissue? Patients […]
