The end of root canals: Stem cell fillings trigger teeth to repair themselves, research study claims
Stanford University said the drug combination worked ‘startlingly well’
Doctors at the Mayo Clinic have received FDA approval for a platform that can manufacture stem cells by the billions in just days, in contrast to previous methods of making stem cells that took months.
It’s now been over two decades since scientists in Scotland successfully cloned a sheep and named the newborn Dolly. In the years since, the technology that powers cloning has advanced slowly but steadily, and while many scientists fear the inevitability that one day a human clone will be created, others are pushing the field into […]
Typically, colon-related illnesses such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are diagnosed via invasive tests. Thanks to a new “electronic nose,” however, it may soon be possible to detect such disorders by analyzing a whiff of the patient’s feces.
Some cancers are difficult to beat, even with modern drugs. New research sheds light on how one type of chemotherapy provides a safe haven for tumor cells, boosting cancer recurrence and growth in the long-run.
Stem Cells and Aging The stem cells found within the average adult human are capable of restoring dying cells while also fixing damaged tissue. Nothing is safe from the aging process, though, and as we get older we begin to lose the very same stem cells that once kept our bodies in functional condition. But […]
Virtual reality allows scientists to walk inside cancer cells. Imagine being able to walk around inside a virtual replica of your own cells.
Researchers could have an answer to antibiotic resistance, and it involves using epigenetics to reprogram bacteria.
Considering that blue eyes feature quite significantly in pop culture, it is surprising that only 17% of the world’s population actually have them.
