Precisely fitting bone implants from the printer


Cancerous tumors, infections or bad fractures can make it necessary to surgically remove bones and insert implants in their place. In collaboration with European partners, Fraunhofer researchers have now developed a technique with which bone implants that are precisely fitting, stable and ...

A lipid’s role in cell division


Proper cell division is a basic process critical to cell survival. A ring composed of actin filaments and myosin motor proteins pinches the cell apart, producing two daughter cells with equal amounts of cellular components. Kathleen Gould , Ph.D., and colleagues characterized how this powerful ...

Anti-tumor effect of novel plasma medicine caused by lactate


Physical plasma is one of the four fundamental states of matter, together with solid, liquid, and gas, and can be completely or partially ionized (thermal/hot or non-thermal/cold plasma, respectively). Non-thermal plasma has many industrial applications, but plasma medicine is a new field of ...

The fourth state of matter, plasma: A technology to improve bone healing?


Cold plasma looks like the glow from the "Star Wars" blue light saber but this beam of energy, made of electrons that change polarity at micro-second or nanosecond speeds, could help bones heal faster, according to a study. Most people interact with plasma every day. It's in our TVs, fluorescent ...


Plasma makes wounds heal quicker


Many people suffer from skin disorders. Open wounds are a particularly acute problem, especially among the elderly. PlasmaDerm, a new medical technology solution, uses plasma to facilitate faster healing of wounds.Skin disorders are a common problem in this part of the world. Atopic dermatitis, ...


From surgery to laboratory and back again


A University of York scientist's experience in seeing his partner in hospital recovering from a double lung transplant prompted him to design and synthesise new chemical agents that could revolutionise post-operative patient care. Professor Dave Smith, of the University's Department of Chemistry, ...


Innovative technology for the enrichment of free-circulating DNA


After a two year period of development Analytik Jena has launched an innovative technology to enrich and isolate free-circulating DNA. Free-circulating DNA occurs in plasma, serum, and urine, among other things, but only in small fragments and very low concentrations. In order to isolate them, ...


PRAC considers benefits of Kogenate Bayer/Helixate NexGen outweigh risks in previously untreated patients

Current evidence does not confirm increased risk of inhibitor development compared with other factor VIII products


The European Medicines Agency’s Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee (PRAC) has reviewed the medicines Kogenate Bayer and Helixate NexGen and concluded that current evidence did not confirm an increased risk of developing antibodies (factor VIII inhibitors) against these medicines when ...

Cells' 'molecular muscles'


Johns Hopkins researchers used suction to learn that individual "molecular muscles" within cells respond to different types of force, a finding that may explain how cells "feel" the environment and appropriately adapt their shapes and activities. A summary of the discovery in the journal Nature ...


Beating blindness with vegetable oil

New research shows Omega-3 rich oils improve membrane fluidity in retina cells and can help fight age-related eye diseases


Scientists working at the Research Center on Aging at the Health and Social Services Centre — University Institute of Geriatrics of Sherbrooke (CSSS-IUGS) have been studying strategies for protecting retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells. Dysfunction of the RPE is found in retinopathy and ...
