Burn specialists at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) announced today they have successfully used live-cell, genetically engineered pig skin (xenograft) for the temporary closure of a burn wound. Through an FDA-cleared phase one clinical trial led
Western researchers have moved a step closer to identifying a ‘brain fingerprint’ for consciousness—a discovery that will unlock further understanding into why some patients, presumed to be vegetative, are still aware of the world them.
Sonia Guil, leader of the Regulatory and Chromatin RNA group of Josep Carreras Leukemia Research Institute, and Lourdes Farré of ProCURE (Idibell) have discovered an intermediate molecule expressed from a region of the non-coding genome
Human body parts are pretty remarkable. Makes sense given as how our body contains more atoms than you can count: 7 octillion. Yes, that’s really a number. Your body also has some 37 trillion cells. If
The line between the human herpes simplex viruses—HSV-1 and HSV-2—is blurrier than previously thought, according to a new study published this week in the Journal of Infectious Diseases. Researchers found that HSV-1 and HSV-2 are
Researchers from the CNRS and Aix-Marseille University1 have used a novel approach to demonstrate that interactions with humans activate the brain’s social reward system more than discussions with robot interlocutors. The scientists employed functional magnetic
The study was led by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine and the School of Veterinary Medicine. (iStock) A new study suggests painkillers prescribed to pets could possibly be contributing to
