Bioartificial kidney under study at MCG

... "Anywhere from 50 to 70 percent of those patients die and over the past 20 years, despite dialysis, that has not changed much." He hopes the new device, developed by Dr. H. David Humes at the University of Michigan, can help turn the tide for some patients by more closely mimicking the many important f...

Protein discovery could unlock the secret to better TB treatment

...istant TB. In England and Wales around 400 people die each year from the disease. The top challenge for TB control in the European region is multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB).

Why do insects stop 'breathing'? To avoid damage from too much oxygen, say researchers
