Studies to find better ways to preserve human eggs, ovarian tissue under way

...ation, which also seems to work faster, better and cheaper in embryos. They pursue the potential of egg preservation as well to really find out which is the best option: ovarian tissue or pure eggs. Also, a better way to preserve eggs – which last about 24 hours outside the body without preservation – wo...

Modified mushrooms may yield human drugs

...ucing biopharmaceuticals is potentially faster and cheaper with mushrooms than conventional technologies. Unlike plants that have long growth cycles, "with mushrooms, we can use commercial technology to convert the vegetative tissue from mushroom strains stored in the freezer into vegetative seed. A crop f...

Maggots rid patients of MRSA

...fact they are better than surgeons - they are much cheaper and work 24 hours a day," Professor Boulton jokingly said. "They have been used since the Napoleonic Wars and in the American Civil War they found that those who survived were the ones with maggots in their wounds: they kept them clean. They remov...

Double the death rate from cirrhosis for 'blue collar' men

.... "In Australia, alcohol has become relatively cheaper and more available. "It is already known that socio-economic inequalities in alcohol-related diseases are among the largest of any cause of death. For example, in Britain, between 1991 and 1993, liver cirrhosis rates among unskilled workers were ...

Yale biologists 'trick' viruses into extinction

...rapies are very expensive. Turner suggests, "A cheaper option is the possibility of engineering trap cells that have CD4 molecules on their surface, but no nucleus for virus reproduction. Mature red blood cells could fill the bill, because they lack a nucleus and could be engineered as sink habitats that...

'Hidden-hero' microbes in soil, water may help naturally clean toxic sites

... stands, bioremediation, which is potentially much cheaper than current technologies, has not been used much at all, but it should be," he said. "Subsurface aquifers, where most of the radioactive contamination resides, are primary sources of groundwater used for drinking, and contaminated aquifers tend ...

Researcher examines polymers created with poultry feathers

... made just like petroleum-based plastics. They are cheaper to manufacture and meet or exceed most properties except for water resistance and longevity. Meeting these performance requirements is a challenge, Barone explains. Barone is taking his lead from nature to find potential solutions to these perform...

Faster, low cost sequencing technologies needed to drive era of personalized medicine

...cing technology is driven by the mantra of faster, cheaper and more reliable. In the past generation, sequencing costs have fallen 100-fold, from roughly a dollar a DNA base to a penny, but are still far out of reach for the public. Zhang's technological vision would enable scientists to sequence billion...

Taking 'chips' to the next level of gene hunting

...tially that all chip experiments become faster and cheaper and can be done on an ever larger scale," says Boeke. The chips his team currently uses cost about $400 per experiment. If the amount of information can be quadrupled, "it would be four experiments for the price of one," he says. Standard chips co...

Faster, more accurate tuberculosis test developed

The study is published in the October 12, 2006, issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. "In the fight to stop the spread of TB, new diagnostic tools are urgently needed to detect TB and multidrug-r...

Professors to develop hand-held pathogen testing device

Syed Hashsham, an associate professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Center for Microbial Ecology, is developing a portable, hand-held devi...

Jumping gene could provide non-viral alternative for gene therapy

...." Another clear benefit is that transposons are cheaper to produce and probably safer than viruses. For example, retroviruses use RNA to make DNA, an error-prone process that must occur before integration, Dr. Kaminski says. Also, viruses can't carry larger genes, such as the dystrophin gene, which could ...

Liquorice cancer care

Tim Meyer, Consultant Medical Oncologist at the Royal Free Hospital London agrees, that tissue-specific drugs could potentially provide more effective treatment, because a higher concentration...

Finding a better way to make biodiesel

Lin has developed a nanotechnology that accurately controls the production of tiny, uniformly shaped silica particles. Running all t...

Polymers show promise for lab-on-a-chip technology

In the past, most microscale research and development funds have targeted silicon, the fundamental material in the semiconductor industry. But LCPs are less brittle and more pliable than silicon, Elias ...
