Liquid crystal liver

First and new realistic 3D model of the liver lobule since the year 1949

05-Jul-2019

The currently used simplified model of mammalian liver tissue can only show in a limited way how liver tissue is structured and formed. Almost 70 years later, researchers at the Max Planck Institutes of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics as well as for the Physics of Complex Systems together ...

Early in vitro testing for adverse effects on embryos

15-May-2019

ETH researchers have combined embryonic cells and liver cells in a new cell culture test. This combination lets them detect adverse effects that new medications may have on embryos early on in the drug development process. Medications have to be safe for mothers-to-be and for their unborn ...

CRISPR/Cas9 shown to limit impact of certain parasitic diseases

Limiting the impact of schistosomiasis and liver fluke infection

17-Jan-2019

For the first time, researchers at the George Washington University (GW), together with colleagues at institutes in Thailand, Australia, the U.K. and the Netherlands, and more, have successfully used the gene-editing tool CRISPR/Cas9 to limit the impact of parasitic worms responsible for ...

Liver-on-a-chip, the ideal test environment for CRISPR

16-Oct-2018

Two Arizona State University professors are among the first recipients ofSomatic Cell Genome Editing (SCGE) grants from the National Institutes of Health Common Fund. The $2,600,000, five-year grant will fund the first study of the genome editing technology CRISPR to be used on a "human liver ...

Malaria-causing parasite manipulates liver cells to survive

24-May-2018

When the malaria-causing Plasmodium parasite first slips into the human bloodstream, injected by the bite of an infected mosquito, it does not immediately target red blood cells. Instead, it seeks refuge inside the liver and rapidly reproduces, copying itself as many as 30,000 times in the span ...

Sensitive new assay detects hepatitis B infection in single liver cells and serum

13-Apr-2018

Chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) can progress to cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). A study describes a new HBV assay that offers advantages over currently used methods because it has the capability to detect closed circular DNA (cccDNA) in serum, single cells, and preserved tissue ...

New study identifies targets to lessen the effects of alcoholic liver disease

09-Nov-2017

In 2015, nearly half of 80,000 deaths due to liver diseases in the United States were related to alcoholic liver disease (ALD), according to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Chronic alcohol consumption causes abnormal fat accumulation in liver cells (steatosis) and liver ...

Could this be malaria's Achilles heel?

08-Nov-2017

Portuguese researchers at Instituto de Medicina Molecular (iMM) Lisboa have identified a defence mechanism by which the malaria parasite can survive inside its host's liver cells, a crucial stage where the parasite acquires the capacity to infect red blood cells causing the symptoms associated ...

How the liver unclogs itself

04-Jul-2017

A multi-disciplinary team of researchers from the Mechanobiology Institute, Singapore (MBI) at the National University of Singapore (NUS), the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) of A*STAR, and BioSyM, Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology have described the ...

Paracetamol study could open door for way to treat liver damage

02-Feb-2017

Scientists have shed new light on how the common painkiller paracetamol causes liver damage. Their findings may offer valuable insights into poisoning caused by an excess dose, which can be difficult to treat and may prove fatal. The discovery could inform research into therapies to counteract ...
