Brain glue aids regeneration of neurons after traumatic injury

7.4.2021   |   Press monitoring

Traumatic brain injuries can have severe and long-lasting repercussions that involve damage to the organ's tissue, cognitive impairments and disability. An implantable "brain glue" material developed at the University of Georgia could offer a way to intervene, by mimicking the supporting structure of brain cells to prevent tissue loss and...

CRISPR-SNP-chip enables amplification-free electronic detection of single point mutations

5.4.2021   |   Press monitoring

Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) Assistant Professor and University of California, Berkeley Visiting Scientist Dr. Kiana Aran first introduced the CRISPR-Chip technology in 2019. Now just two years later, she has expanded on its application to develop CRISPR-SNP-Chip, which enables detection of single point mutations without amplification in Sickle...

Modified blood platelets combine heat and immunotherapy to kill cancer

2.4.2021   |   Press monitoring

Researchers at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) have developed an intriguing new way to fight cancer by combining two types of experimental therapies. Their secret ingredient is creating a feedback loop using modified blood platelets. Several promising new anti-cancer techniques have emerged in recent years, such as immunotherapy, which...

New drug to regenerate lost teeth

31.3.2021   |   Press monitoring

The tooth fairy is a welcome guest for any child who has lost a tooth. Not only will the fairy leave a small gift under the pillow, but the child can be assured of a new tooth in a few months. The same cannot be said of adults who have lost their teeth. A new study by scientists at Kyoto University and the University of Fukui, however, may offer...

Reprogrammed skin cells restore motor function in stroke-affected mice

29.3.2021   |   Press monitoring

Scientists continue to break new ground in the realm of cellular reprogramming, a burgeoning area of medical research where one type of cell is retrained to fulfill the role of another. A team at Ohio State University (OSU) has leveraged this technology to repair damaged tissue in mice with stroke-affected brains, a technique it hopes could one...

Landmark brain cancer vaccine passes first phase of human trials

26.3.2021   |   Press monitoring

Diffuse gliomas are a particularly difficult kind of brain cancer to treat. They can spread across the brain making it difficult to easily eliminate them through traditional surgery, but these tumors do often share a common feature – over 70 percent of low-grade gliomas have a single gene mutation affecting an enzyme called isocitrate...

Largest-ever DNA mapping study of the Philippines

24.3.2021   |   Press monitoring

Over 50 millennia, at least five major immigration waves have successively populated the Philippines, the most comprehensive survey of genetic variations in the country to date shows. This Uppsala University study, published in the scientific journal PNAS, comprises 2.3 million DNA markers from some 1,000 individuals. Our findings suggest that...

Single dose antibiotic clears multi-drug-resistant gonorrhea in mice

22.3.2021   |   Press monitoring

Antibiotic resistant bacteria are among the most urgent threats to public health. Now a team of scientists has developed a new single-dose drug that works on a different mechanism to most existing antibiotics, and showed in tests in mice that it can be used to treat multi-drug-resistant gonorrhea. One of the leading catalysts for bacteria...

Genome scalpel invented for industrial microalgae to efficiently turn carbon dioxide into biofuel

19.3.2021   |   Press monitoring

A single-celled alga undergoes genome surgery to remove non-essential parts. This can lead to a most efficient cellular factory for producing sustainable biofuels from sunlight and carbon dioxide. Researchers from the Qingdao Institute of BioEnergy and Bioprocess Technology (QIBEBT) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) have stripped a...

Lab-grown structures mimic human embryo\'s earliest stage yet

17.3.2021   |   Press monitoring

Scientists have used human stem cells to mimic the earliest stage yet of embryo growth. Multiple research groups independently report that they grew balls of cells that look like human blastocysts, which form about 4 days after an egg is fertilized by sperm. These experiments offer a window into a crucial time in human development, and an...
