Purdue's gold nanorods brighten future for medical imaging

...me barriers in developing advanced medical imaging techniques that use light to analyze blood vessels and underlying tissues. "One obstacle is that light in the visible spectrum does not pass through tissue very well," said Alexander Wei, an associate professor of chemistry who worked with Cheng and other Purd...

Bone marrow stem cells may heal hearts even years after heart attacks

...way. Meanwhile, researchers continue to refine the techniques for harvesting, processing and delivering stem cells into the damaged muscle tissue of heart attack patients. Piero Anversa, M.D., from the New York Medical College in Valhalla, New York, who was not connected with this study, called the results "e...

New cell transplantation technique restores insulin production in diabetics

...vents many of the complications common to previous techniques used to transplant islet cells. Thirty days after the procedure, all 13 patients were producing insulin without requiring supplemental injections, and none experienced major complications. Liver function tests and blood cell counts were monitored car...

Biotechnology's newest chemical tool

For example, he says the techniques could one day be used to build different tissues based on patterns of light or make bacteria that can produce structures useful in medical treatments. The students are already busy on their next innovation--bacteria that can find and create a line a...

Researchers offer proof-of-concept for Altered Nuclear Transfer

...apeutic potential, we must use all known tools and techniques in order to explore the mechanisms that give these cells such startling characteristics." ANT, Jaenisch emphasizes, is a modification, but not an alternative, to nuclear transfer, since the approach requires additional manipulations of the donor ce...

University of Delaware researchers develop cancer 'nanobomb'

...ubes are destroyed completely. Current surgical techniques are not precise and cancerous cells are often left behind. In addition, cancers in some part of the body, such as arteries and veins, are sometimes considered inoperable. Nanobombs can be used to target any remaining cancerous cells and can be used i...

NIAID researchers show how promising TB drug works

...ed difficult, says Dr. Barry. Conventional genetic techniques for comparing normal and mutant strains of M. tb failed, so the team turned to a specially modified microarray-based technique, called comparative genome sequencing, developed by NimbleGen Systems, Inc. (Madison, WI). This was the first time the tech...

Gene therapy for muscular dystrophy fixes frail muscle cells in animal model, Stanford study finds

...said that researchers have tried several different techniques with variable success. One hurdle is getting genes into muscle cells all over the body. Another is convincing those cells to permanently produce the therapeutic protein made by those genes. The gene therapy technique Rando and postdoctoral fellow C...

Researchers develop new method for studying 'mental time travel'

...t will allow you to remember specific details. The techniques that we used in this study allow us to visualize from moment to moment how well subjects are recapturing their mindset from the original event." In the experiment, participants studied a total of 90 images in three categories -- celebrity faces, fam...
