Bones in motion: Brown scientists to create new 3-D X-ray system

...earchers are creating a technology that will allow doctors and scientists to do the seemingly impossible: See inside living humans and animals and watch their bones move in 3-D as they run, fly, jump, swim and slither. This high-resolution, high-speed imaging system will contribute to better treatments fo...

Transfusion expert urges wider use of filtered blood

...ioners are not convinced they hold many risks. But doctors at the University of Rochester, leaders for two decades in the study of "transfusion immunomodulation," believe otherwise. Giving donor blood to someone, Blumberg said, is akin to a temporary organ transplant. In many cases the transfused blood modif...

Scientists genetically engineer tomatoes with enhanced folate content

...he folate is already present in the food." Will doctors be recommending a healthy dose of salsa for would-be pregnant women anytime soon? Probably not, the researchers say. "It can take years to get a genetically-engineered food plant approved by the FDA," Hanson said. "But before that is even a questi...

A 'traffic light' for neurons means 'go' for improving brain research

...ignals, such as movement instructions, could allow doctors to bridge blockages in damaged spinal columns, perhaps restoring some function to the limbs of paralyzed patients. Finally, the technique could be useful in teasing out the largely unknown functioning of healthy brains. "One day we'd like to be...

Woven scaffolds could improve cartilage repair

"The use of this scaffold will also permit doctors to treat larger areas of cartilage damage, since the current approaches are only suitable for repairing smaller areas of cartilage damage or injury." Cartilage is a type of connective tissue that lines the ends of bones, providing cushioning and a...

NT researchers discover breakthrough in malaria treatment
