Scalpel-free surgery could reduce risk of HIV and hepatitis exposure for health care workers

...of infection - lymph-node biopsy, soft-tissue-mass excision and abscess-drainage cases - were often assigned to the most inexperienced surgeons-in-training, placing them at greatest risk. "Sharpless surgical techniques combined with traditional precautions and early education for surgery trainees are the mos...

Carnegie Mellon University research reveals how cells process large genes

...," Lopez said. "These steps involve the sequential excision of smaller subfragments. Our work also indicates that most recursive splicing events leave no clues in the final mRNA. This is why they have not been detected before now." These previously undetected events could have profound implications for pred...

Buildup of damaged DNA in cells drives aging

...t. Defects in one DNA repair mechanism, nucleotide excision repair (NER), causes xeroderma pigmentosum, a rare disease in which people have a 2,000-fold increased risk of skin cancer from sun exposure. When the investigators obtained cells from the boy and tested them for NER activity, they found almost no...

This means if the clays are antibacterial in nature and the locus for that activity can be isolated, they may represent a new form of treatment, one that goes beyond the capacity of existing antibiotics. "And they could be ...
