15-year hunt finds cause of pseudothalidomide syndrome

...llent opportunities to strengthen understanding of craniofacial and limb development, health and disease beyond the rare disease itself, say the researchers. Because of advances in technology and computer analysis, the researchers were able to find the Roberts gene, called ESCO2, by studying samples from just 15...

Forsyth scientists gain greater understanding of how embryos differentiate left from right

...far-reaching implications for the understanding of craniofacial development, right-left hand preference, right/left brain dominance and a variety of birth defects in humans. A team of Forsyth Institute scientists, led by Michael Levin, PhD, Director of the Forsyth Center for Regenerative and Developmental Biolo...

Protein-coated dental implants could improve bone regeneration

...lready shown promise as a regeneration therapy for craniofacial reconstruction. "None of us had any idea at the time how or if those proteins could be useful in treating tooth loss," Dr. Wikesjö says. To find out, researchers placed the proteins around teeth and implants in animal models. Around teeth, the...

Cellular traffic backups implicated in skeletal malformations

...tein "transit system" may lie at the heart of some craniofacial defects, new research in zebrafish suggests. In... One possibility is that the fast growth of the craniofacial skeleton, which begins forming around day three, is more sensitive to the slow-down of protein trans...

Stem cells found in adult hair follicles may provide alternative to embryonic stem cells

...ects of the heart, and bone defects (degeneration, craniofacial birth defects) could also be treated through neural crest stem cell replacement therapy. Together, these conditions affect over 11 million people today in the US and are estimated to annually cost more than $170 billion. ...
