OHSU turns mouse into factory for human liver cells

...blished in the journal Nature Biotechnology, could soon become the gold standard not only for examining drug metabolism in the liver, which helps scientists determine a drug's toxicity. But it also can be used as a platform for testing new therapies against infectious diseases that attack the liver, such ...

In their Nature Genetics study, published online August 5, the researchersused the LD pattern to design a method for mapping the associations betweengenetic variants and corresponding physical traits in A....

Particle emissions from laser printers might pose health concern

...ct office settings from outdoor air pollutants. We soon realized that we were seeing air pollution originating indoors, from laser printers. The study found that indoor particle levels in the office air increased fivefold during work hours due to printer use. Printers emitted more particles when operati...

Gold nanoparticles may pan out as tool for cancer diagnosis

... engineering. "We hope that this technology will soon play a critical role in early detection and monitoring of breast cancer," said Irudayaraj (pronounced ee-roo-THY'-a-razh), leader of a research team that developed a new method for fabricating the nanoparticles that is published online this month in ...

Scientists move closer to bio-engineered bladders

...ld in the body. Pharmaceutical companies should soon be able to use the research models to test therapies for the bladder, but the longer term aim for this research is to help patients who have lost bladder function or have had all or part of their bladder removed because of cancer. Research leader,...

Geisinger scientist seeks cure for Lou Gehrig's disease, creating device to find treatment

... of potential cure-carrying chemical solutions may soon take days, and with far fewer research staff involved. A streamlined screening process will free up precious resources in the lab, Gerhard says. The Bucknell students worked throughout the spring semester to improve on their design. In their fi...

MIT team building robotic fin for submarines

... exactly what nature does, said Tangorra, who will soon be joining the faculty of Drexel University. We want to figure out what parts are important for propulsion and copy those. So far, the team has built several prototypes that successfully mimic the sunfish fin. They reported the successful testing o...

Scratch no more: Gene for itch sensation discovered

...ching for a better anti-itch remedy" Your wish may soon be granted now that scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have identified the first gene for the itch sensation in the central nervous system. The discovery could rapidly lead to new treatments directly targeting itchine...

Researchers watch antibiotics, bacteria meet at atomic level

...he action of RNA polymerase, and bacteria will die soon thereafter. The team's findings may be applicable to realms outside microbiology and drug discovery. Such a clear picture of the RNA polymerase elongation complex may be useful to a number of research areas, including manipulating the complex to in...

Radiation therapy combined with microsurgery shows promise for curing injured spinal cord

...s, similar to human injury, reveals that treatment soon after injury combining radiation therapy to destroy harmful cells and microsurgery to drain excess fluids significantly increases the bodys ability to repair the injured cord leading to permanent recovery from injury, according to the study published...

New joint replacement material developed at MGH put to first clinical use

...er joints were developed in the late 1960s, but it soon became apparent that hip implants could start loosening about 5 years after surgery and would eventually fail completely. A team led by William Harris, MD, DSc, now director emeritus of the MGH OBBL, investigated this complication and found that long...

Molecular detectors may refine cancer treatment

...filiated with the UF Genetics Institute. We should soon be able to say patients who belong to this specific molecular binding pattern should have such-and-such treatment. Different molecular patterns of cancer patients will point to different treatments. Current tests to diagnose leukemia use antibodies...

First genome-wide study of infectious disease opens new avenues for HIV treatment, vaccines

If scientists could pinpoint the gene variants that help some people control HIV infection--or avoid it altogether--they might be able to rationally design therapies or vaccines to mimic these naturally occurring genetic advantages, ...

Expert to provide update after 'worst tomato virus' hits California

Plant pathologists are continuing to monitor for the virus and ask all tomato growers, from backyard gardeners to commercial growers, to look for symptoms of the virus. A flyer showing symptoms of the virus is availabl...

Restless legs genetics on the move

The BV8S2/BJ2S7 clonotype was found in far greater excess, disappeared with disease recovery, and was found to transfer disease to other healthy mice. The second clonotype, BV...
