A recombinant vaccine against Nipah virus, a deadly zoonotic infection found in bats, protected ferrets from disease, paving the way for clinical trials in humans.
Dog breeds prove to be a fruitful model for mapping loci associated with a complex cancer
Cell retention and subsequent functional benefits via retrograde coronary infusion are significantly enhanced by magnetic targeting of mesenchymal stem cells in a rat model of myocardial infarction.
DNA sequencing has been used to identify species in bird stomach contents, as a novel application to address birdstrikes.
Neurological events contribute to mortality risk in patients undergoing transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI); Alexandra Lansky and colleagues argue that diffusion-weighted MRI should be used to detect neurological lesions and measure TAVI success.
Progenitor cells from the swine buccal fat pad (BFP) have mesenchymal features and are capable of osteodifferentiation, indicating human BFP-adipose-derived stem cells may have clinical applications in dental tissue engineering.
After transduction with MYOD lentiviruses, human amniotic fluid stem cells (hAFS cells) are capable of myogenic differentiation in vitro, and muscle regeneration in a mouse model of muscle injury.
BRCA1 suppression by either inactivating mutation or decreasing expression can increase EGFR expression in ovarian cancer, indicating that BRCA1 may be a potential trigger in transcriptional regulation of EGFR in the development of the disease
Hypoxia-induced mRNA in maternal blood is associated with fetal hypoxic status in utero, suggesting that a simple blood test could be used to determine fetal hypoxia and enable clinicians to intervene earlier in critical cases.
Two new models are proposed for studying genetic variants, environment and DNA methylation interactions in asthma development.
