Maggots rid patients of MRSA

...d were the ones with maggots in their wounds: they kept them clean. They remove the dead tissue and bacteria, leaving the healthy tissue to heal. "Still, we were very surprised to see such a good result for MRSA. There is no reason this cannot be applied to many other areas of the body, except perhaps ...

Scientists develope a new model of artificial canine skin

The model develops a morphological structure similar to that of canine skin. Additionally, the expression of the dermis and epidermis proteins...

Sleepless for science: Flies show link between sleep, immune system in Stanford study

... rhythm. In this case, these mutant flies could be kept under exactly the same light and temperature conditions as the normal flies. They looked at flies that were defective in one of two genes, called "timeless" and "period". They found that the loss of either gene's function made the flies more sensi...

Fused nasal bones helped tyrannosaurids dismember prey

"We kept the muscle numbers down because we thought they couldn't possibly be that powerful, but Tyrrell museum colleagues showed that a T. rex's lower jaw could apply 200,000 newtons of force—that's like lifting a semi-trailer," he said. "All of the T. rex's...
