Multipotent stromal cells have long been a hot topic in medical research. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now found a way to specifically mark these stem cells. This makes it possible to analyze their distribution pattern and their function in living organisms. The study, which included researchers from Oxford University, Tsukuba University and the Karolinska Institute Stockholm, is now being published in the journal Cell Stem Cell.

Millions of unapproved antibiotics are being sold in India, according to a new study by researchers at Queen Mary University of London and Newcastle University.
In this study, researchers have used a new method to discover previously unknown interactions between proteins and small metabolic molecules in bacterial cells. The technique can also be used to test the effect of medications. With protein-metabolite interactomics has now added another level to the existing "omics." The researchers recently published a study in the journal Cell.
According to this study, researchers have reported a new highly parallel technique to fabricate precise metallic nanostructures with designed plasmonic properties by means of different self-assembled DNA origami shapes. The so-called DALI (DNA-assisted lithography) method has been used. The study published in the latest issue of Science Advances.
According to a new study, Inner ear stem cells can be converted to auditory neurons that could reverse deafness, but the process can also make those cells divide too quickly, posing a cancer risk. The study was published in Stem Cell Reports.
Fifteen projects announced will develop new healthcare technologies to tackle international health challenges, ranging from the prevention of limb loss by Syrian refugees to faster diagnosis and treatment for parasitic diseases such as malaria.
Researchers have established a detailed procedure for quantification of mepirapim and acetyl fentanyl in whole blood and urine specimens using gas chromatography (GC)-tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS). The study findings were published in Forensic Toxicology.
A new study published in Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine shows that integrating scribes into a primary care setting can benefit clinic operations, joy of practice, quality of care, and patient experience. These positive outcomes go beyond reducing charting burden and may all play a role in preventing physician burnout.
How does psychological stress translate into physical health effects? A key piece of the puzzle may be found in specialized cellular structures known as mitochondria, according to a pair of articles published in Psychosomatic Medicine: Journal of Biobehavioral Medicine.
Treating latent HIV reservoirs with latency-reversing agents and autologous CD8 + T cells fails to eliminate the replication-competent virus, a new study, published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation , reports.
High exposure to radiofrequency radiation (RFR) in rodents resulted in tumors in tissues surrounding nerves in the hearts of male rats, but not female rats or any mice, according to draft studies from the National Toxicology Program (NTP).
Researchers are searching for therapies that might slow the progression of DMD while also investigating genetic and other approaches to disrupt the underlying disease mechanism. Examining data from the large TREAT-NMD Duchenne muscular dystrophy database, investigators were able to confirm that corticosteroid treatment can delay some of the clinical effects of DMD and that there is greater variability among patients in the progression of the disease than reported. These findings appear in the Journal of Neuromuscular Diseases .
