How a mutant gene can cause deafness

26/11/2014 - Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have discovered how one gene is essential to hearing, uncovering a cause of deafness and suggesting new avenues for therapies. read more

Dopamine leaves its mark in brain scans

26/11/2014 - BOLD signals in functional magnetic resonance imaging do not always reflect what nerve cells are doing: Researchers use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to identify which areas of the brain are active during specific tasks. read more

Fat a culprit in fibrotic lung damage

24/11/2014 - Excess fat in the lung may cause pulmonary fibrosis, an incurable lung disease. It is caused by scarring that seems to feed on itself, with the tougher, less elastic tissue replacing the ever moving and stretching lung, making it increasingly difficult for patients to breathe. read more

Clock for brain waves

21/11/2014 - Oscillations of brain activity influence our attention and many other mental functions. Tatjana Tchumatchenko from the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research in Frankfurt and Claudia Clopath from Imperial College London have now developed a theoretical model that explains the origin of such oscillations in neural networks. read more

A new tool for identifying onset of local influenza outbreaks

21/11/2014 - Predicting the beginning of influenza outbreaks is notoriously difficult, and can affect prevention and control efforts. Now, just in time for flu season, researchers have devised a simple yet accurate method for hospitals and public health departments to determine the onset of elevated influenza activity at the community level. read more

Technology against a flu outbreak

20/11/2014 - Contrary to what one might think, influenza epidemics are a natural occurrence, as they are produced by the constant mutation of the viruses leading to the appearance of new subtypes formed from recombination of whole areas of genes. Therefore, Mexican scientists designed a platform that assesses the knowledge that people have about the disease and provides tools to prevent contagion. read more

New insight into common cause of blindness

18/11/2014 - Scientists at The University of Manchester have identified an important new factor behind one of the major causes of blindness, which they hope could lead to new treatments. Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is the major cause of blindness in the western world, affecting around 50 million people. It has been shown that sufferers are genetically predisposed to develop the condition. read more

Drugs that protect organs during transplantation

18/11/2014 - Organs can become significantly damaged during transplantation, but a new article published in the BJS (British Journal of Surgery) offers a protective strategy that could keep them safe and allow them to function optimally after the procedure. read more

Bio-inspired bleeding control

17/11/2014 - Stanching the free flow of blood from an injury remains a holy grail of clinical medicine. Controlling blood flow is a primary concern and first line of defense for patients and medical staff in many situations, from traumatic injury to illness to surgery. If control is not established within the first few minutes of a hemorrhage, further treatment and healing are impossible. read more

On the Trail of Proteins

14/11/2014 - Scientists from Heidelberg University in collaboration with researchers from the University of Gießen have succeeded in electrochemically detecting protein binding on semiconductor materials for the first time, thanks to a newly developed investigative method based on differences in electrical charge. read more
