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.

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