Researchers Discover Pathway for Enhancing the Self-repair Efforts of Injured Kidneys

A team of researchers led by Jonathan Stamler, MD, of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, has discovered a pathway for enhancing the self-repair efforts of injured kidneys. The finding may pave the way for new drugs to stop or even reverse the progression of serious kidney disease in humans–and other potentially lethal conditions of the heart, liver, and brain as well

Epigenetic Maps of The Inner Ear And Hearing Loss

Epigenetics is the expression and control of genes. The epigenetics involved in the inner ear is a critical part of the mystery of hearing. A team led by Prof. Karen B. Avraham, Vice Dean of the Sackler Faculty of Medicine at Tel Aviv University, has now created the first map of "methylation" one of the body's main epigenetic signals – that reflects the functioning of the inner ear in its entirety.
