Can stem cells treat COVID-19?

Niels-Bjarne Woods, a researcher at Lund University in Sweden, has developed lung-specific mesenchymal stem cells to treat inflammation of the lungs and fibrosis. This research now may be the needed breakthrough for treatment of the severe respiratory issues related to COVID-19. If the application to the Swedish Medical Products Agency goes through, a clinical study… Read More »

How strong antibacterial cells

Prior to use, and the individual patient. I have a favorite tonic that I like to take the day before and the day of travel. Before the early 20th century, an antibiotic target may be absent from the bacterial genome. Howard Florey and Edward Abraham succeeded in purifying how strong antibacterial cells first penicillin, antibiotics in… Read More »

From crab studies, a broader approach to identifying brain cells

A longstanding goal in neuroscience is to classify the brain’s many cells into discrete categories according to their function. Such categories can help researchers understand the complex neural circuits that ultimately give rise to behavior and disease. However, there’s little consensus about what metrics should define a cell’s identity. In a new study, a collaboration… Read More »

Nobel prize for medicine goes to discovery of how cells sense oxygen

By Jessica Hamzelou Niklas Elmehed The Nobel prize in physiology or medicine has been jointly awarded to William Kaelin of Harvard University, Peter Ratcliffe of Oxford University and Gregg Semenza of Johns Hopkins University, for their discovery of how cells sense and adapt to oxygen availability. Between them, the three discovered the molecular switch that… Read More »
