New Way to "See" Genes, Evaluate Effectiveness of Gene Therapies Discovered

...the reporter genes and gene therapy are paired and infused into a patient, the patient receives an injection of a special radioactive molecule. The reporter genes produce a protein that traps the radioactive molecules, and the radioactivity causes the regions of the body in which the reporter gene is present...

Knee fat turns into cartilage

...row them into cartilage tissue by having the cells infused onto a special biodegradable matrix. The work has enormous potential and many applications. In years to come, those with injury to a joint or some other skeletal problem could find themselves with a ready repair material created from their own cells....

Ultrasound helps stroke treatment

...z, the device focuses on the clot while the tPA is infused over a period of about an hour and then continues to track the clot for an hour after infusion.
