Commonly used drug offers promise for premature babies
... if a building being outfitted with strong support structures
is hit by an earthquake while the scaffolding is still up and construction is underway the whole structure is at risk of collapse. In the case of prematurely born infants, the baby's brain literally does not have the time to tie up its loose ends ...

of the urethra and bladder are weakened, causing the bladder to move down toward the bottom of the pelvis. In the sling procedure, a strip of the patients own tissue is placed under the urethra like a hammock and attached to the ligaments of the pu...
Developments in tissue engineering offer new sources for stem cell treatments
...ce. The implanted cells formed multilayered tissue structures

MUHC-led international team identifies gene responsible for blindness in infants and children
...s were able to discover LCA5, as they have similar structures
and functions in the retina. Both the CEP290 and LCA5 genes encode proteins with vital functions in the cilium of the photoreceptors, transporting visual proteins to the compartment where vision occurs. When these genes are mutated, which occurs in a...
