Animals are a common trigger of asthma symptoms. You might be allergic to just one animal or more than one.

Tony's illness affected him gradually at first, but over the past 12 months he has needed more and more care. His wife Claire says: "MSA...
When you're testing hundreds of different cancer drugs in the lab, knowing the backstory of the cells you're testing them on is important.
But cellular history might not always be quite what scientists expect – especially when working with cancer cells that have been growing for decades, not in a patient, but in a flat 2D layer in a plastic dish.

I was very nervous before I went on a plane because I have never flown before. I chose an aisle seat which helped me to calm my nerves. Ruth, who supports me at...
