AMSBIO announces an ex-vivo device for removal of dying and dead cells News-Medical.net The resultant product selectively initiates dead-cell removal, emulating dead-cell clearance mechanisms which operate in-vivo to keep tissues functioning...
Descrier Cancer vaccine a step closer as natural killer cells are rightly activated Descrier Few attempts to develop a cancer vaccine have been made, but the side effects have been overwhelming, such as the immune system turning against not just...
Overcoming a major limitation to the study of the origins and progress of human disease, Yale researchers report that they have transplanted human innate immune cells into mouse models, which resulted (RT @Yale: Breaking new ground: Yale team implants...
A powerful new way to edit DNA Honolulu Star-Advertiser The cell tries to repair the cut but often does so imperfectly, which is enough to disable, or knock out a gene. To change a gene, scientists usually insert ...
The Human Microbiome Project (HMP), launched by the National Institutes of Health Roadmap for Medical Research, is designed to fuel research into the human microbiome and to demonstrate correlations between changes in the microbiome and human health.
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 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.
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.
UC Berkeley and UC San Francisco are launching the Innovative Genomics Initiative (IGI) to lead a revolution in genetic engineering based on a new technology already generating novel strategies for gene therapy and the genetic study of disease. The leader of the initiative, Berkeley professor Jennifer Doudna, is one of the discoverers of the new technology, called CRISPR/Cas9.
Tackling tumors with space station research Space Daily Grimm and her colleagues are following up with additional research, a Nanoracks Cellbox investigation called "Effect of microgravity on human thyroid carcinoma cells," scheduled to launch in...
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.
In space, things don’t always behave the way we expect them to. In the case of cancer, researchers have found that this is a good thing: some tumors seem to be much less aggressive in the microgravity environment of space compared to their behavior on Earth.
