Bladder Cancer: 'Very-Low-Risk' type described

According to the researchers, about 40% of patients with low-risk bladder cancer can be put into a "very-low-risk" category characterized by younger patient age, smaller tumors, and a lower recurrence rate than patients with larger tumors. The findings are published in the BJU International (formerly the British Journal of Urology).

Study Revealed; Bone Components And Their Regeneration

A new research and development for bone growth factor therapy, this involves the discovery of bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs). Some organs, like the brain and spinal cord, are protected inside bone structures—the skull and vertebrae, respectively. Other organs, such as the muscles, are attached to the skeleton. The discovery of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in 1991, coincident with the first isolation of human embryonic stem cells, also stimulated significant interest.

DNA Sequencing And Genome Assembly: International Space Station

A New research on ISS, by evaluating the performance of the MinION in a space environment, we tested it aboard the International Space Station (ISS). Durations for Mars missions are likely to range from 1.5 to 3 years, with 12 to 24 months of that time spent in transit between the planets, based on present propulsion technologies and planetary orbital dynamics. In response to spaceflight, the human immune response becomes dysregulated, microbial pathogenicity can rise during spaceflight.

Development Of Better Targeting Drugs; Research Reveals

Researchers from the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) have determined the kinetic cycle of a potassium channel at atomic resolution. Potassium channels are important for the normal functioning of the human body. This new study showing, "The Gating Cycle of a K+ Channel at Atomic Resolution." This study was published in eLife.
