PHILADELPHIA, May 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Complex wounds affect more patients in the United States than heart attack and stroke combined. About 150,000 amputations a year result from complex wounds, while about 80,000 are attributed to diabetes and peripheral arterial disease. There are currently no established methods for early detection of wound healing, or for precise identification of healing progress. A new device developed by researchers can change chronic wound management....

Scientists discovered that mammoths had blood that displayed "antifreeze" like qualities, which kept their bodies supplied with oxygen at sub-zero temperatures. The journal Nature Genetics reported that scientists extracted a blood protein, known as hemoglobin, from mammoth remains. The study of the hemoglobin led researchers to find those antifreeze properties. The hemoglobin protein is found in red blood cells where it binds to and carries oxygen. The scientists found that mammoths...

Black children with chronic kidney disease have more severe anemia than white children even when they receive the same treatment, according to a multicenter study led by Johns Hopkins Children's Center to be published in the May issue of the American Journal of Kidney Disease. The findings suggest that inherent biological differences, rather than access to care and treatment, may be at play, raising the question whether current guidelines for anemia treatment should be tailored to reflect...

Scientists at Washington University have isolated a channel that shuttles the vital but vulnerable heme molecule across biological membranes In some ways a cell in your body or an organelle in that cell is like an ancient walled town. Life inside either depends critically on the intelligence of the gatekeepers. If too many barbarians sneak into town, the town may be put to the torch. And if the cellular gatekeepers can't control the flow of ions and molecules into and out of the cell, the...

Scientists have designed a synthetic protein that is both a structural model and a functional model of a native protein, nitric-oxide reductase. The designed protein "provides an excellent model system for studying nitric-oxide reductase, and for creating biocatalysts for biotechnological, environmental and pharmaceutical applications," said University of Illinois chemistry professor Yi Lu, who directed the work. "Through rational design, we can better understand native proteins, and maybe...
