One step closer to growing made-to-order human kidneys

15.2.2019   |   Press monitoring

In a study with significant implications for human organ transplantation, researchers have successfully grown functional mouse kidneys inside rats from just a few donor stem cells. The results of the study, led by researchers from the National Institute for Physiological Sciences in Japan, will be published in an upcoming issue of Nature...

Converting cells into new neurons could lead to a pill that repairs brain damage

13.2.2019   |   Press monitoring

As powerful as the human brain is, once it's damaged it can't really recover completely. Now researchers at Penn State may have found a way to boost the brain's regenerative abilities, using certain molecules to convert neighboring cells into new neurons. The technique could eventually lead to pills that treat brain injuries, stroke or...

Chimpanzee mini-brains hint at secrets of human evolution

11.2.2019   |   Press monitoring

At some point during human evolution, a handful of genetic changes triggered a dramatic threefold expansion of the brain's neocortex, the wrinkly outermost layer of brain tissue responsible for everything from language to self-awareness to abstract thought. Identifying what drove this evolutionary shift is fundamental to understanding what makes...

Micromotors deliver oral vaccines

8.2.2019   |   Press monitoring

Vaccines have saved millions of lives, but nobody likes getting a shot. That's why scientists are trying to develop oral vaccines for infectious diseases. But to be effective, the vaccine must survive digestion and reach immune cells within the intestinal wall. Now, researchers reporting in the ACS journal Nano Letters have developed oral...

Red-eyed mosquitoes engineered to break the chain of Zika virus transmission

6.2.2019   |   Press monitoring

Scientists in Australia are looking at some pretty creative ways to tackle the Zika virus, which continues to pose a risk to millions across Africa, Asia and parts of the Americas. Following a trial last year where researchers were able to decimate disease-spreading mosquitos in the country's north, scientists have now demonstrated an engineering...

The ocean is full of drifting DNA. The United States needs to collect it, researchers say

1.2.2019   |   Press monitoring

U.S. government agencies monitoring fisheries, endangered species, and environmental impacts ought to leverage the DNA present in every drop of seawater, say the organizers of a conference on marine environmental DNA (eDNA), held at Rockefeller University in New York City in November 2018. Biological surveys based on eDNA are reliable and poised...

Pufferfish-inspired pill could keep a long-term eye on your gastric health

30.1.2019   |   Press monitoring

MIT researchers have developed an ingestible pill that swells up to the size of a ping-pong ball upon reaching the stomach, allowing it to remain in the body and take measurements from within – for weeks at a time. The pill's creators hope that it could be used for a multitude of purposes, from tracking stomach pH levels to observing the growth...

Genetically modified virus shown able to kill tumors in mice with retinoblastoma

28.1.2019   |   Press monitoring

An international team of researchers reports that modifying an adenovirus a certain way made it an effective tumor killer in mice with retinoblastoma. In their paper published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, the researchers describe modifying the virus and testing its effectiveness in treating retinoblastoma. Retinoblastoma, as its...

Not all poo is created equal: Scientists discover super donors for fecal transplants

25.1.2019   |   Press monitoring

A new study, led by researchers from the University of Auckland, has described the phenomenon of super donors, people who contribute stool samples for use in trials whose poop seems to be significantly more effective in leading to clinical improvements for fecal transplant subjects. Despite a long history of anecdotal use, the science behind...
