DNA Molecules Used To Assemble Nanoparticles

...usters are in the works. "If you wanted to make a therapeutic that targeted five drugs to five different cells, it would be 25 synthesis steps the traditional way," Baker said. At two to three months per synthesis, and a significant loss of yield for each step, that approach just wouldn't be practical. Instead...

Wisconsin scientists grow critical nerve cells

... UW-Madison. Scientists have long believed in the therapeutic promise of embryonic stem cells with their ability to replicate indefinitely and develop into any of the 220 different types of cells and tissues in the body. But researchers have struggled to convert blank-slate embryonic stem cells into motor neur...

"Ifso, these cells could have much broader therapeutic applications thansuggested by our earlier work."In 2001 Faustman's team found that a treatment designed to address theautoimmune reaction underlying type 1 diabetes actually cured thedisease in diabetic mice. Late in 2003 they reported the mechanismb...

They urge physicians to apply this new finding by following their patients more closely over the long term, and by looking specifically for heart rhythm irregularities in...

Scientists seek answers on what activates deadly anthrax spores

...ural vulnerabilities that are key to designing new therapeutic agents to prevent anthrax. Interest in determining how to stop anthrax remains high, not only after the 2001 attacks through the mail that resulted in 18 cases and five deaths, but also after the recent scare at two military mailroom facilities when...
