Now Fingerprints can Be Used to Detect Drugs and Diseases Instead of Blood Samples

...o to diagnose some diseases. Researchers want to coax all of these secrets out of the tiny traces of perspiration that a fingerprint leaves on a surface. The research team demonstrated the ease with which this should be possible by differentiating between fingerprints made by smokers and nonsmokers. ...

Stem Cells- a Miraculous Boon

...e. Current research, however, is exploring ways to coax stem cells to grow into the specific cell types that die off in diseases like diabetes, Parkinsons disease, and heart disease, hence all the hype about potential cures. To harvest stem cells, the embryo has to be destroyed. Stem cell research is vig...

South African Farmers Turn to Organic Farming

...ds of the Western Cape. After decades of trying to coax fruit onto the trees with the aid of chemicals, fruit farmers are// packing in the pesticides and deciding to grow green. Organic farming has come to South Africa, where it is being billed, not only as a profitable enterprise, but also as a panacea...

Stem Cell Transplants Explored as a Possible Treatment for Hearing Loss

...tone: the team demonstrated that it is possible to coax embryonic stem cells in a test tube to differentiate into hair cells - and then also to have the stem cells differentiate after transplantation in the ears of chicken embryos. The two different approaches - new drugs and stem cell transplants - are...

MIT Creates 3-D Scaffold for Growing Stem Cells

...ed active motifs, the scaffold can be fashioned to coax stem cells to behave in certain desirable ways-such as differentiating into needed body tissues or migrating toward bone marrow and other natural destinations. "What makes these designer scaffolds particularly interesting is that cells survive lon...

Rescuing Injured Hearts by Enhancing Regeneration

...Children’s Hospital Boston, showed that they could coax cardiomyocytes to multiply in a petri dish by inhibiting an enzyme known as p38 MAP kinase, which normally suppresses cardiomyocyte replication.

Treatment of Spinal Cord Injury with Embryonic Stem Cells

...tion." In 2005, Keirstead's lab was the first to coax human embryonic stem cells to become highly pure specialized cells known as oligodendrocytes. These cells are the building blocks of myelin, which acts as insulation for nerve fibers and is critical for maintenance of electrical conduction in the cen...

The reward could be time in the sauna, a massage or a nutritious vitamin-rich drink, any of which can be enjoyed at the gym immediately after a workout, Buchner said. "When it comes to nutrition, a ...

Its Possible To Grow Bone To Replace The Damaged Bone

...ly growing and reshaping, the numerous attempts to coax bone to grow outside of the body ? in vitro ? have all failed. Recent attempts to stimulate bone growth within the body ? in vivo ? have had limited success but have proven to be extremely complex, expensive and unreliable. Shastri and his colleag...

Enzyme stimulates growth of adult stem cells

...m their own bodies. And it is not yet known how to coax embryonic stem cells into desired mature cell types. This type of cloning is not intended to produce an offspring, but instead to produce an embryo that has stem cells are made specifically for treating a specific patient's disease....

Genes for Vision discovered

...s. “Can we manipulate these genes in such a way to coax stem cells to becoem photoreceptors?” she said. A little more than half of the mutant genes for degenerative diseases of the retina had been identified when Cepko began his study. Using a computer program that compares snippets of genetic material ...
