Human Embryos Can Now Be Developed In The Lab Past 14 Days After Historic Guideline Change

31.5.2021   |   Press monitoring

Scientists will now be able to grow human embryos for longer than 14 days after the International Society of Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) has updated their guidelines. The "14-day rule", which has been in place since the late 1900s, was designed to prevent researchers from developing embryos past the point in which a visible line of cells begins...

Pollen-sized particles give bees immunity to insecticides

28.5.2021   |   Press monitoring

The Cornell University scientists developed a microparticle the size of pollen, which can be packed with enzymes that break down and completely detoxify these insecticides before the bee absorbs them. The particles can be mixed into pollen patties or sugar water and fed to the bees, with a protective casing safeguarding the enzymes as they pass...

Self-organizing human heart organoids in a dish

26.5.2021   |   Press monitoring

Biologist Sasha Mendjan at the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna and his team have used human pluripotent stem cells to grow sesame-seed-sized heart models, called cardioids, that spontaneously self-organize to develop a hollow chamber without the need of experimental scaffolds. This advance, which allows for the creation of some of the most...

Breakthrough optogenetic therapy partially restores blind man\'s vision

24.5.2021   |   Press monitoring

In a major breakthrough for regenerative medicine, scientists have partially restored vision in a blind man using an emerging technique called optogenetics. The approach involved injecting the patient's eye with genes that code for light-sensitive proteins found in green algae, and represents the first successful clinical application of the...

New biological and safer soaps

21.5.2021   |   Press monitoring

An international research team led by Professor Charles Gauthier from the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) has discovered a new molecule with potential to revolutionize the biosurfactant market. Surfactants are synthesized from petroleum and are the main active ingredient in most soaps, detergents, and shampoos....

An illuminating possibility for stroke treatment: Nano-photosynthesis

19.5.2021   |   Press monitoring

Blocked blood vessels in the brains of stroke patients prevent oxygen-rich blood from getting to cells, causing severe damage. Plants and some microbes produce oxygen through photosynthesis. What if there was a way to make photosynthesis happen in the brains of patients? Now, researchers reporting in ACS' Nano Letters have done just that in...

Landmark asthma vaccine looks to human trials

17.5.2021   |   Press monitoring

Asthma is a very heterogeneous disease, so beyond treating an acute flare-up with inhaled corticosteroids there are big challenges in developing a universal treatment. A characteristic response seen in about 50 percent of asthma patients is excessive production in the airways of two inflammatory molecules, IL-4 and IL-13. Blocking the actions of...

Experimental gene therapy points to cure for rare immune disease

14.5.2021   |   Press monitoring

An experimental gene therapy developed to treat children born with a rare immunodeficiency disease has demonstrated extraordinary efficacy according to a new long-term follow-up study. Severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) is a rare disease leaving children with no functioning immune system. The disease is perhaps best known as the...

Enzyme system for the hydrogen industry

12.5.2021   |   Press monitoring

An enzyme could make a dream come true for the energy industry: It can efficiently produce hydrogen using electricity and can also generate electricity from hydrogen. The enzyme is protected by embedding it in a polymer. An international research team with significant participation of scientists from Technical University of Munich (TUM) has...

Molecular tweezers that attack antibiotic resistant bacteria

10.5.2021   |   Press monitoring

Researchers from Ben-Gurion University (BGU), together with American and German colleagues, have developed new "molecular tweezers" to combat antibiotic-resistant bacteria. "Our discovery prevents infection without building up antibiotic resistance, and it might even be preferable to develop treatments based on molecular tweezers rather than...
