A team of genetic engineers achieved such impressive results by applying a new reactivation technology for the Cngb1 gene, which destroys the retina when it is ‘switched off’. This is the first such case in history.
Injuries are a highly likely occurrence in space, but given the conditions, providing first aid to astronauts is a true challenge. Researchers from Dresden Technical University have come up with a solution to the problem.
Scientists from The University of Manchester are currently working on teaching the big pump to work without any oxygen. This idea was inspired by ordinary turtles.
The basis for the organ was pluripotent stem cells that can differentiate into any type of cell in the body.
For a successful hair transplant operation, the patient needs healthy hair follicles. But how can completely bald people get them? Scientists from Columbia University have started printing them using a 3D printer.
Researchers at Boston Children's Hospital claim that intestinal micro flora disorders are the main cause of food allergies. Special bacteria will help to cope with the condition and bring the body’s internal environment to normal.
The device was developed by scientists at the University of Texas. It is much more reliable and convenient than the electrodes which were previously used to track patient health.
Experts from two universities (Minnesota and Carnegie-Mellon) have made a real breakthrough in noninvasive robot control.
3D printing is one of the milestone inventions of the 21st century, capable to change the state of affairs in many areas of our lives including medicine. Researchers from the University of Illinois in Chicago have recently succeeded in printing a whole organ without using a frame.
The University of Arkansas (USA) researchers have created and successfully tested a new cancer treatment device. It is a laser that destroys cancer cells in the patient's body directly through the skin.
These are the conclusions made by the scientists who studied UK and USA medical industry for 15 years. The reasons for the disappointing "diagnosis" are corruption, prejudice, and the long time it takes to bring new drugs to the market.
The scientists who were involved in the project assure that their new prosthesis will not only do a great job handling any terrain, but also prevent limping.
