Biological clock And This Drug May Keep It From Ticking

A new drug shows potential to halt cancer cells' growth by stunting the cells' biological clock. The findings from scientists at the USC Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience and Nagoya University's Institute of Transformative BioMolecules (ITbM) advance a burgeoning area of research: turning the body's circadian rhythms against cancer.

Developing New Implants That The Rate Of Bone Lengthening

The implants developed by TPU scientists passed preclinical trials In the Ilizarov Orthopedic Center (Kurgan, Russia). These implants form part of the Ilizarov system variation applied for lengthening and correcting the deformations of long tubular bones in children. During the preclinical tests, Tomsk implants made it possible to reduce the terms of limb lengthening two times. The outcomes of research and tests were published in the journal Biomedical Materials.

Researchers Fund Links Between Genetic Factors And Health

The FinnGen study, launched in autumn 2017, is a broad academic-industrial collaboration between the Finnish biobanks and their respective Universities, University Hospitals, the Institute of Health and Welfare (THL), the Finnish Red Cross Blood Service and now nine international pharmaceutical companies. The study is funded by the industrial partners and Business Finland.
