Microbial Colonization of Surgical Implant Hardware

The researches find that the often used to secure surgically implanted hardware to the spine in patients with spinal disease or spinal trauma. In some cases, these screws loosen over time, leading to spinal instability and consequent pain. This is a common complication of spine surgery. One reason suggest for pedicle screw loosening is implant-associated…

Calcium Channel Regulates Bone Homeostasis In Middle And Inner Ear

The middle ear contains the three auditory ossicles the malleus, incus, and stapes which sequentially conduct sound by transmitting sound vibrations from the tympanic membrane to the fluid in the cochlea via the oval window of the otic capsule, the bony case enclosing the cochlea and vestibular system. In the otic capsule, the vibrations are…

New Treatment To Treat Asthma And Airway Inflammation

Belgian research groups from the VIB, Ghent University, Ghent University Hospital, and the biotech company Argenx have solved a century-long puzzle about the presence of protein crystals in asthma. Normally, proteins do not crystallize in the body, but there are some instances when this process does occur. Charcot-Leyden crystals are made from the protein galectin-10…

T cells may bolster CAR T immunotherapy

The study find that the a cancer immunotherapy called CAR (for chimeric antigen receptor)-T; in which a patient is re-infused with their own genetically modified T cells equipped to mount a potent anti-tumor attack. Since then CAR T approaches (one of several strategies collectively known as “adoptive T cell transfer”) have made headlines as a…

Brain Activity In Freely Moving Mice

Brain Activity Of Multiple Freely Moving Mice

Brain functions and related psychiatric disorders have been investigated by recording electrophysiological field potentials. Electroencephalography (EEG) measures whole brain wide activity; while local field potential recording detects the dynamics of more localized micro-networks of the neurons. Electrophysiological  field potential dynamics have been widely using to investigate brain functions and related psychiatric disorders. Considering recent demand…
