Nanotextured implant materials: blending in, not fighting back

...the surface texture of implant materials to better match the natural texture of the endothelium, they found that endothelial cells quickly colonized the foreign surfaces, effectively camouflaging them and preventing smooth muscle cells from overgrowing the implants. Once the endothelial cells form a single...

New study challenges 'critical period' in childhood vision development

Herlyn and her group now plan to use the RPL8 antigen to develop a melanoma vaccine for patients with advanced di...

Penn study on lung-infecting bacterial enzyme suggests new approach to cystic fibrosis treatment

Mitochondrial genes move to the nucleus -- but it's not for the sex

...e components are further separated if they mix and match haphazardly during out-crossing. Brandvain said the finding contradicts the expectation that mitochondrial genes migrate to the nucleus because of the evolutionary benefits conferred by sexual recombination. "The benefits of sex could have driven...
