Topic of the Month February: Regenerative medicine

Regenerative medicine is concerned with restoring lost functions of the body. Researchers hope to be able to also treat rare diseases and tissue defects and even to replace entire organs in the future. Especially in the last decade, more and more methods have been successfully tested and are already partially applied. This month we present two of them in detail. Read our Topic of the Month

In autism, the social benefits of being a girl

10/02/2016 - Infant girls at risk for autism pay more attention to social cues in faces than infant boys, according to a Yale School of Medicine study, the first one known to prospectively examine sex-related social differences in at-risk infants. read more

Epilepsy at the Molecular Level

10/02/2016 - Why does a structural irregularity in the temporal lobe make humans more susceptible to epileptic seizures? A group of scientists at the Freiburg University Medical Center consisting of members of the University of Freiburg’s Cluster of Excellence Brain Links–Brain Tools has published a study involving a comparison of nearly 30,000 genes in the journal Cerebral Cortex. read more

More detailed analysis of how cells react to stress

09/02/2016 - Stress in the body’s cells is both the cause and consequence of inflammatory diseases or cancer. The cells react to stress to protect themselves. Researchers at the University of Zurich have now developed a new technique that allows studying a fundamental response to stress in much more detail than previously possible: the ADP-ribosylation of chromatin. read more

Complex pathogens

09/02/2016 - Helicobacter pylori, a bacterium colonising the stomach, has a bad reputation: It is said to cause gastritis, stomach ulcers and, in the long run, even cancer. And yet, it seems the bacterium could also have some positive effects. A team of scientists from Graz and New York examined the impact of a Helicobacter infection on the stomach, intestines and lungs over a period of six months. read more

Researchers uncover new piece of the HIV puzzle

08/02/2016 - A research project headed by Henrik Kloeverpris, a postdoc at the Department of Immunology and Microbiology at the University of Copenhagen, shows that the so-called ILCs - a component of the immune system crucial to maintaining immune system balance - are destroyed in patients infected with HIV. This study highlights the importance of early treatment during an acute HIV infection. read more

New target for the treatment of fatty liver disease

08/02/2016 - Two proteins, p38 gamma and p38 delta, control the accumulation of fat in the liver, a process linked to the development of insulin resistance and diabetes, which are common outcomes of obesity. The study, led by Dr. Guadalupe Sabio, shows that inhibition of these proteins with specific inhibitors has potential as a treatment for fatty liver disease. read more

Biomolecule's behavior: artificial vs natural conditions

05/02/2016 - Researchers often analyse isolated biomolecules in test tubes, and it is doubtful if the results can be applied to densely-packed cells. A team from Bochum, Dortmund and Greifswald monitored the folding of an RNA structure in the living cell and compared the results with those of test tube analyses. read more

Disruptions to embryonic reprogramming alter adult mouse behavior

05/02/2016 - When the process of epigenetic reprogramming is defective in mouse development, the consequences in adulthood can include abnormal repetitive behaviors, scientists have shown. read more

Portable method to detect tainted medicines and supplements

04/02/2016 - A researcher at Case Western Reserve University is developing a low-cost, portable prototype designed to detect tainted medicines and food supplements that otherwise can make their way to consumers. The technology can authenticate good medicines and supplements. read more

Novel nanoparticle may help keep tumor growth at bay

04/02/2016 - Engineers at Washington University in St. Louis found a way to keep a cancerous tumor from growing by using nanoparticles of the main ingredient in common antacid tablets. read more
