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

When Kopelman's group treated rats with PEBBLEs that weren't even tailored to home in on cancer cells, the rats lived twice as long. With targeted PEBBLEs, some rats were still alive and active two months later, and MRI images...

Researchers discover molecule that causes secondary stroke

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

...lies, which have been studied closely for decades, die sooner from aging in a high-oxygen environment." Insects take in oxygen through spiracles -- tubes connected to openings in their sides. In their study, the researchers inserted fine tubes into the spiracles of a moth to measure not only how much ca...
