How HIV disables the cells' call for help

...n the initial stages of HIV infection, the protein coatings of the viruses fuse with the outer membranes of T cells ?immune system cells that recognize foreign invaders and alert other types of immune cell to come to the rescue. The genetic material of the virus, which is basically a strand of RNA, then force...

'Nanospheres' that block pain of sensitive teeth

...is widely used by medics for bone grafts or dental coatings (because it binds strongly with the bone material). Earl and his colleagues grew hydroxyapatite at various pH levels to vary the size of the particles it is made up of. At normal pH, it is composed of long rod-like structures but at high pH levels t...

Bare metal stents deliver gene therapy to heart vessels with less inflammation in animal studies

...rowing process, called restenosis, but the polymer coatings that initially hold the drugs to the stents may stimulate inflammation. The inflammation in turn leads to restenosis. Researchers at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia have developed a novel technique to attach therapeutic genes to a stent's ba...
