Harnessing an innate repair mechanism enhances success of retinal transplantation

Cell replacement therapies hold promise for many age-related diseases, but efforts to bring treatments to patients have not been very successful — in large part because the newly derived cells can’t integrate efficiently into tissues affected by the ravages of aging. This is poised to change. Researchers have harnessed a naturally occurring anti-inflammatory mechanism that repaired the eye and significantly enhanced the success of retinal regenerative therapies in mice. The results could be par…

Treating autoimmune disease without harming normal immunity

With potentially major implications for the future treatment of autoimmunity and related conditions, scientists have found a way to remove the subset of antibody-making cells that cause an autoimmune disease, without harming the rest of the immune system. They studied an autoimmune disease called pemphigus vulgaris, a condition in which a patient’s own immune cells attack a protein called desmoglein-3 that normally adheres skin cells….

New experimental system sheds light on how memory loss may occur

Spatial memory decays when the entorhinal cortex is not functioning properly, a new mouse model shows. The study, say the authors, provides new information about how dysfunction of this circuit may contribute to memory loss in Alzheimer’s disease….

Have Potato. Will Travel – Summer Contest

In case you missed it…

On Memorial Day I posted this on Facebook:

Caption reads: Have potato. Will travel. The security guy gave me a weird look but whatever ๐Ÿ˜› (snowboarding, planes, opera, baseball… Where will I take a potato next?)

And it got me thinking! (Thx Michele!!!)

Travelocity has that gnome and WE HA…

Fire discovery sheds new light on 'hobbit' demise

Crucial new evidence has revealed modern humans (Homo sapiens) were likely using fire at Liang Bua 41,000 years ago, narrowing the time gap between the last hobbits (Homo floresiensis) and the first modern humans at this site on the Indonesian island of Flores….

New neuroendovascular technique shows promise in stroke patients with large-vessel clots

Scientists report promising 90-day outcomes for stroke patients with large-vessel clots who underwent thrombectomy or clot removal using the direct-aspiration, first pass technique (ADAPT). Approximately 58 percent of stroke patients with a large-vessel clot removed using the technique achieved a good outcome at 90 days, defined as a Modified Rankin Score (mRS) of 0 to 2….
