Gene therapy converts dead bone graft to new, living tissue

...eplacing it with the only alternative available ?a donated section of comparable bone from a cadaver. The new splint of bone is then literally screwed into place, giving the patient most of the strength and support of the original bone. Bone, unlike any other tissue in the human body, can still perform one o...

Novel Therapy Tested in Mice Could Chase Away Cat Allergies

...Saxon and his colleagues first tested GFD in blood donated by people allergic to cats. They cultured blood cells with either GFD or with a purified human antibody as a control. Then they added the cat protein that triggers allergic reactions to all the blood cell cultures. “We measured more than 90 percent ...

Seal rookeries could provide a reliable food source for endangered California condors, study finds

... Newly released condors are fed stillborn calves donated by local cattle ranchers. Eventually, the birds supplement their diet with carcasses of deer, boar and other terrestrial wildlife they happen to find. Unfortunately, many of these animals are killed by hunters using lead shot, which is highly toxic t...
