Researchers Make Insulin from Human Umbilical Cord Bloods Adult Stem Cells
Researchers have successfully engineered adult stem cells from human umbilical cord blood to make insulin.
The study may help cure type 1 diabetes by allowing people to grow their own insulin-producing cells for a damaged or defective pancreas.
The study was conducted by a team of ...
How Bloods Vessels are Linked Together?
The Scientists at Karolinska Institutet have discovered a heretofore-unknown mechanism for -how the body links together its blood vessels.//
New blood vessels are formed when a "shoot" sprouts from an already existing vessel. These shoots lengthen, branch off and contact other vessels as they...
Old diabetes drug teaches experts new tricks
...ine the optimal therapeutic dose, which can vary widely from person to person. The Hopkins team has found that in mice, metformin changes CBP in white bloods
cells just as it does in liver cells creating a molecular marker that is easily measured via a standard blood test.
"This is the quintessence of...
NYP/Weill Cornell physician-scientists present latest cancer findings at ASCO meeting
...cular endothelial growth factor receptors (VEGFR)-1, -2 and -3, c-kit and platelet derived growth factor receptor (PDGF-R), which both work by growing bloods
vessels that supply nutrition to tumors. Prior to surgery to remove their tumors, 87 percent of the 26 subjects tested had a significant reduction in ...
Anticoagulants is Better for Atrial Fibrillation
...ts can then travel to the brain, block vessels and cause a stroke.
One way of reducing the risk of this occurring is to give drugs that limit the bloods
ability to create clots. Two commonly used options are anticoagulants that inhibit the clotting process (e.g. warfarin), and drugs such as aspirin tha...

...y myself a newspaper."
The hotel does not have special medical facilities, but the rooms are linked to nursing staff by an alarm. After having bloods

Rhode Island Biotechnology Company Develops Tularemia Vaccine
...lmonary form is more common in Martha’s Vineyard than in most other places in the world. EpiVax collaborated with Martha’s Vineyard Hospital to obtain bloods
from people with previous tularemia infection; 95% of the study participants demonstrated robust responses to the TuliVaxTM components.
Gum disease can lead to Heart attacks
...diseases reduced the risk of heart attack incidence. Scientists have found that inflammation in gums related to occurrence of clotting risk factors in bloods
and suggests that having a healthy tooth check up and cleaning can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease....
Scientist discover secrets of ageing
...ia triggers cell deaths that may lead to hearing loss, loss of vision, hair fall, weight loss, weakening of the bone structures and less number of red bloods
cells. The genetic mutations lead to critical cell death, bringing into focus the concept of programmed cell deaths happening during ageing.
