Nephrolytix aims to detect acute kidney injury ten times faster
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is commonly seen in hospitals. It entails the rapid deterioration of kidney function, a high disease burden, and leads in some cases to death. The team at Nephrolytix GmbH, a new spin-off of Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, has developed a process with the potential to reduce the time it takes to detect AKI – currently 48 to 72 hours – by 90 percent.

Model finds COVID-19 deaths among elderly may be due to genetic limit on cell division
Your immune system’s ability to combat COVID-19, like any infection, largely depends on its ability to replicate the immune cells effective at destroying the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes the disease. These cloned immune cells cannot be infinitely created, and a key hypothesis of a new study is that the body’s ability to create these cloned cells falls off significantly in old age.
