Researchers Create Printed Cartilage For Potential Use In Human Patients
2012-11-23 11:57:33

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Printers have come a long way over the years. From the early days of keyed typewriters to the dot-matrix printers of the 1970s and the modern laser printers and plotters, printing has dramatically evolved. And that is no more true than as seen in new research, published in the latest issue of IOP Publishing´s journal Biofabrication. Researchers from Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) have developed a way...

Regenerated Lizard Tails Not A Perfect Match To Original Tail
2012-10-10 08:47:00

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Some lizards have the innate ability to re-grow their tails when their original one gets severed. However, this natural regenerative ability does not occur in a perfect way. In other words, the new tail, based on studies by a team of scientists from two Arizona schools, is quite different from the original appendage it replaces. Scientists from Arizona State University and University of Arizona examined the anatomical and...

Doctors Guided To Serious Medical Disorders Through Collagen-seeking Synthetic Protein
2012-08-29 15:00:50

Johns Hopkins researchers have created a synthetic protein that, when activated by ultraviolet light, can guide doctors to places within the body where cancer, arthritis and other serious medical disorders can be detected. The technique could lead to a new type of diagnostic imaging technology and may someday serve as a way to move medications to parts of the body where signs of disease have been found. In a study published in the Aug. 27-31 Online Early Edition of Proceedings of the...

Cleveland Clinic team simulates cartilage response to loading A Cleveland Clinic research team is developing virtual models of human knee joints to better understand how tissues and their individual cells react to heavy loads — virtual models that someday can be used to understand damage mechanisms caused by the aging process or debilitating diseases, such as osteoarthritis. Led by Ahmet Erdemir, Ph.D., the team is leveraging the powerful computing systems of the Ohio...
