Microclinics help keep Kenyan HIV patients in care

21/05/2015 - A team led by researchers from UC San Francisco, Organic Health Response, and Microclinic International is reporting results of a study that showed significant benefits of microclinics -- an innovative intervention that mobilized rural Kenyan HIV patients' informal social networks to support their staying in care. read more

On film: Body's 'serial killers' destroying cancer cells

21/05/2015 - A dramatic video has captured the behaviour of cytotoxic T cells - the body's 'serial killers' - as they hunt down and eliminate cancer cells before moving on to their next target. read more

Soft-tissue engineering for hard-working cartilage

20/05/2015 - Advance in 3-D printing could have broad applications: An international study points the way toward wider, more effective use of biocompatible materials in repairing human tissues. Focusing on the difficult case of restoring cartilage, which requires both flexibility and mechanical strength, the researchers investigated a new combination of 3-D printed microfiber scaffolding and hydrogels. read more

New risk factor for pregnancies

20/05/2015 - Women who were born preterm have a higher risk of giving birth to preterm children, according to a study, published in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology, from researchers of the CHU Sainte-Justine and the University of Montreal. read more

Gel filled with nanosponges cleans up MRSA infections

18/05/2015 - Nanoengineers at the University of California, San Diego developed a gel filled with toxin-absorbing nanosponges that could lead to an effective treatment for skin and wound infections caused by MRSA. read more

Dye could prevent infection during bone-repair surgery

15/05/2015 - A green dye that sticks to bone grafts becomes antimicrobial with the flick of a light switch and could help reduce the risk of infections during bone-reconstruction surgeries. read more

How cancer tricks the lymphatic system into spreading tumors

13/05/2015 - Swollen lymph nodes are often the earliest sign of metastatic spread of cancer cells. Now cancer researchers and immunologists at Sweden's Karolinska Institutet have discovered how cancer cells can infiltrate the lymphatic system by 'disguising' themselves as immune cells (white blood cells). read more

Fighting pathogenic bacteria with homing beacon

08/05/2015 - With the threat of multidrug-resistant bacterial pathogens growing, new ideas to treat infections are sorely needed. Researchers report preliminary success testing an entirely novel approach - tagging bacteria with a molecular "homing beacon" that attracts pre-existing antibodies to attack the pathogens. The study is published by the Journal of Molecular Medicine. read more

Light in sight: Potential therapy for acquired blindness

08/05/2015 - Scientists from the Universities of Bern in Switzerland and Göttingen in Germany have succeeded in restoring vision to blind mice. They have developed a molecular light switch as a potential therapy for acquired blindness. read more
