According to a study led by Rutgers University-New Brunswick scientists, the process can also make those cells divide too quickly, posing a cancer risk. This can restore hearing by injecting stem cells into the inner ear and stem cells can be converted to auditory neurons that could reverse deafness. This study published in Stem Cell Reports.

Biologists at The University of Texas at Austin have developed a method for rapidly screening hundreds of thousands of potential drugs for fighting infections , an innovation that holds promise for combating the growing scourge of antibiotic-resistant bacteria . The method involves engineering bacteria to produce and test molecules that are potentially toxic to themselves. The study was published in the journal Cell
In this study, researchers will isolate various compounds from the venom of marine organisms to evaluate their analgesic and anesthetic qualities. This study shows that a multi-disciplinary team of researchers with expertise in biology, anaesthesiology, pharmacology, and medicinal chemistry at U of U Health received a grant from the Department of Defense to identify new, natural compounds to develop non-opioid drugs for pain management.
According this study, authors said that age of the patient and relative lifespan could be taken into consideration when discussing treatment for slow-growing facial nonmelanoma skin cancer. Non-melanoma skin cancer refers to squamous cell carcinoma or basal cell carcinoma. This study is published in JAMA Surgery.
In the new study, researchers instead started with human induced pluripotent stem cells. These are cells taken from adult non-muscle tissues, such as skin or blood, and reprogrammed to revert to a primordial state. They grew the first functioning human muscle tissue from cells obtained from muscle biopsies. This is published in Nature Communications.
According to a new study, research revealed Neighborhood-level socioeconomic factors in low-income areas may significantly predict heart failure risk beyond individual health factors and socioeconomic status. This is published in Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, an American Heart Association journal.
The objective of this study was to investigate dialysis staff ( n = 509), primarily social workers and nurse managers, perceptions of renal transplant disparities in the Southeastern United States.
According to the Emergency Care Research Institute, researchers declined geriatric adults (65 and older) account for up to 25 percent of all ED visits, but their needs may not be met in a general ED. This study has been published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.
