Magnetic Medicine: Nanoparticles target cancer-fighting immune cells

Magnetic Medicine: Nanoparticles target cancer-fighting immune cells | Bio Sciences | Scoop.it
Using tiny particles designed to target cancer-fighting immune cells, researchers have trained the immune systems of mice to fight melanoma, a deadly skin cancer. The experiments represent a significant step toward using nanoparticles and magnetism to treat a variety of conditions, the researchers say. They also note that in addition to its potential medical applications, combining nanoparticles and magnetism may give researchers a new window into fundamental biological processes.

Researchers rejuvenate stem cell population from elderly mice, enabling muscle recovery

Researchers rejuvenate stem cell population from elderly mice, enabling muscle recovery | Bio Sciences | Scoop.it
Researchers have pinpointed why normal aging is accompanied by a diminished ability to regain strength and mobility after muscle injury: over time, stem cells within muscle tissues dedicated to repairing damage become less able to generate new muscle fibers and struggle to self-renew. Scientists identified for the first time a process by which the older muscle stem cell populations can be rejuvenated to function like younger cells.

An end to animal testing for drug discovery? | Bio Sciences | Scoop.it
As some countries and companies roll out new rules to limit animal testing in pharmaceutical products designed for people, scientists are stepping in with a new way to test therapeutic drug candidates and determine drug safety and drug interactions -- without using animals. The development of "chemosynthetic livers" could dramatically alter how drugs are made.

Gut microbes spur development of bowel cancer

Gut microbes spur development of bowel cancer | Bio Sciences | Scoop.it
It is not only genetics that predispose to bowel cancer; microbes living in the gut help drive the development of intestinal tumors, according to new research in mice. Bowel cancer, also called colorectal cancer, results from a series of genetic changes (mutations) that cause healthy cells to become progressively cancerous, first forming early tumors called polyps that can eventually become malignant. New research focused on these polyps demonstrated that bacteria are essential for early tumor development.
