New micro-platform reveals cancer cells’ natural behavior

A new cell culture platform allows researchers to observe never-before-seen behaviors of live cancer cells under the microscope, leading to explanations of long-known cancer characteristics. The easy-to-produce platform developed by Hokkaido University researchers offers cancer cells micro-scale attachment sites that elicit never-before-seen behaviors highly relevant to cancer's clinical properties. The observation of these behaviors shed… Continue reading New micro-platform reveals cancer cells’ natural behavior

Anti-inflammatory diet linked to reduced risk of early death

A new study finds that adhering to an anti-inflammatory diet is associated with lower risks of dying from any cause, dying from cardiovascular causes, and dying from cancer. In the study of 68,273 Swedish men and women aged 45 to 83 years who were followed for 16 years, participants who most closely followed an anti-inflammatory… Continue reading Anti-inflammatory diet linked to reduced risk of early death

Regrowing dental tissue with stem cells from baby teeth

 In a clinical trial stem cells extracted from children's baby teeth were used to regrow the living tissue in teeth damaged by injury. The promising findings highlight the potential of dental stem cells, which could one day be used in a wide range of dental procedures or even for treating certain systemic diseases. Until now,… Continue reading Regrowing dental tissue with stem cells from baby teeth

Decoding robotic surgery skills

Researchers from the Keck School of Medicine of USC are looking to technology to help deconstruct expert surgeons' robotic surgery skills so they can create an objective, standardized way to train the next generation of surgeons. Using a data recorder plugged into a robotic surgery system, the team analyzed expert and novice surgeons' movements during… Continue reading Decoding robotic surgery skills

Properties of stem cells that determine cell fate identified

Researchers from the University of California, Irvine have identified intrinsic cell properties that influence the fate of neural stem cells, affecting what type of brain cell they will form: neurons, astrocytes, or oligodendrocytes. This discovery could give scientists a new way to predict or control the fate of stem cells, improving their use in transplantation… Continue reading Properties of stem cells that determine cell fate identified

‘Chromosomal catastrophes’ in colorectal cancer

According to new research led by Queen Mary University of London.'Chromosomal catastrophes' have been found to occur along the evolutionary timeline of colorectal cancer development Dr William Cross,Queen Mary University of London said: "Our results change the way in which we understand how bowel cancers develop. Although the classical model of colorectal cancer development appears… Continue reading ‘Chromosomal catastrophes’ in colorectal cancer
