Cognitive Test Takers and Score Variation

...and diagnose impairment. Experts use the scores to differentiate between diagnoses, detect changes in level of functioning or to give a diagnosis in the first place. Where scores fall relative to standardized cutoffs affects treatment, insurance, education plans and more. Yet the apparent fuzziness of one-time ...

New Blood Vessels can Be Created from Bone Marrow Stem Cells: Study

...ow were mesenchymal cells, the stem cells that can differentiate into several cell types and which would not trigger an immune reaction when transplanted into another individual. "If true, this means that you may be able to develop a universal cell source for smooth muscle cells, so that you could potentially ma...

Nanospectrometer Aids in Identifying Nutrient Cycle

...dies have shown that some photosynthetic cells can differentiate into heterocysts: thick-walled relatives that fix nitrogen but do not produce oxygen. Using NanoSIMS, Capone and Nealson followed nitrogen as it is fixed in heterocysts and then transported to the other cells, where it is needed as a nutrient. Ca...

...dy. A new study shows that neutrophils may in fact differentiate between their targets. This new indication can prove useful in the research for new drugs to battle lethal pathogens. A scientist in the lab of Whitehead Member Gerald Fink has discovered that neutrophils recognize and respond to a specific form of ...

Tumor Painting to Fight Against Cancer

The limitations of this method contribute to cancer growth or patient mortality that is potentially preventable. The tumor painting technique combines a visual guide for th...

Aedes Agypti Mosquitos Immune System Revealed

...e systems of insects are not static but evolve and differentiate rapidly, most likely in response to the different pathogens which each insect species encounters, says Dr Christophides.

This model specifically destroys cochlear fibrocytes and...

Cord Blood may Hold Potential Therapy for Type 1 Diabetes

...pancreas or possibly introduce stem cells that can differentiate into insulin-producing cells," Haller said. "This isn't a cure-all. We think that giving these cells is essentially providing some immunotherapy and downregulating the autoimmunity these patients have," he added. The findings of the study were p...

... that p63 has more to do with causing the cells to differentiate into particular types of tissue. The study, which was lead by Frank McKeon, PhD, professor of cell biology at Harvard Medical School (HMS), shows that p63s role in not in tissue differentiation but rather to impart "stemness" to the regenerative cell...
