Bioactive cement scaffold may improve bone grafts

A new technology for implants that may improve construction or repair of bones in the face, skull and jaw, has been developed by researchers from the American Dental Association Foundation (ADAF) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Described in recent and upcoming jour...

Alzheimer's disease drug treats traumatic brain injury, report GUMC researchers

...t mice had brain lesions that were as much as 70 percent smaller than control animals and they experienced minimal impairment. The findings further cement the connection between Alzheimer's disease and traumatic brain injury, Burns says, and show that "modulation of beta and gamma secretase may provide n...

A total of 250 fragments of staghorn coral have been collected to date, and placed on cement platforms where they are individually measured at monthly intervals to assess growth and mortality patterns. It is expected that the staghorn fragment...

Researchers examine carbon capture and storage to combat global warming

...s, said Lynn Orr, director of GCEP and professor of energy resources engineering. Stationary facilities that burn fossil fuels-such as power plants or cement factories-would be candidates for the technology, he said. Capturing carbon dioxide from small, mobile sources, such as cars, would be more diffi...

Give thanks for the cranberry, say dental researchers

.... Koo's team also found evidence that cranberry juice disrupts the formation of the building block of plaque, known as a glucan. Like a mason using cement to build a wall brick by brick, bacteria use enzymes known as glucosyltransferases to build dental plaque piece by piece, quickly forming a gunky fort...
