National Eye Institute scientists led a collaborative study and zeroed in on genes associated with age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of vision loss and blindness among people age 65 and older. These findings provide a more...
In everyday life, blinking lights can send signals -- for example, that a car is going to turn. Now, researchers have engineered tiny "blinkers" that reveal single molecules of RNA or protein inside cells based on the duration...
Biomedical engineers at Duke University have found a critical component for growing self-healing muscle tissues from adult muscle -- the immune system. The discovery in mice is expected to play an important role in studying degenerative muscle diseases...
A bat found on the grounds of a Greater Victoria Elementary School has tested positive for rabies, the second occurrence in less than a month. Island Health said that a bat, which tested positive for the rabies virus, was found...
Your blood pressure does not drop during a sauna visit -- it rises, as well as your heart rate. This increase is even comparable to the effect of a short, moderate workout. This is the result of a...
Washington State University researchers have found a way to make food taste salty but with less of the sodium chloride tied to poor health. "It's a stealth approach, not like buying the 'reduced salt' option, which people generally don't...
A signaling pathway controlled by transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta) could be involved in the progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Researchers at the National Eye Institute (NEI), part of the National Institutes of Health, have found that...
Mammalian embryos are unlike those of any other organism as they must grow within the mother's body. While other animal embryos grow outside the mother, their embryonic cells can get right to work accepting assignments, such as head,...
A new technique for the decontamination of organs before transplantation using ultraviolet and red light irradiation has been developed by Brazilian and Canadian researchers and is described in an article published in the journal Nature Communications. The research is...
A new device developed by Stanford University researchers could make it easier for doctors to monitor the success of blood vessel surgery. The sensor, detailed in a paper published Jan. 8 in Nature Biomedical Engineering, monitors the flow...
