SENS Research Foundation is a non-profit organization based in Mountain View, California, and its primary functions are scientific research and public relations in rejuvenation. (PRWEB) October 18, 2013 The SENS Foundation is looking for ways to modify the mitochondrial genome, which could eliminate mitochondrial mutations. A current avenue of research involves creating 13 of the 37 mitochondrial genes that deal with respiratory function. These engineered genes contain a type of protein...

Gold Nanofibers May Help Keep Damaged Heart In Rhythm
2013-07-18 09:58:06

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In the wake of a heart attack, the heart's tissues sustain irreparable damage. Cells in the heart cannot multiply and the heart muscle contains very few stem cells, meaning the tissue is unable to repair itself. The damaged tissue therefore becomes fibrotic and cannot contract correctly. Looking for new, innovative methods to restore heart function, scientists have been exploring cardiac "patches;" these patches could be transplanted...

Macrophages Key In Salamander Regeneration
2013-05-21 15:06:03

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online For years, scientists have considered salamanders the ℠Holy Grail´ of biological regeneration. Now, a new study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences has revealed an exciting step forward in the quest to adapt this ability for medical use in humans. Based on experiments with the tiny amphibians, researchers from the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute at Monash University have found that elements of a...

Researchers Devise A Way To Safely See Whether Replacement Cells Are Still Alive
2013-02-05 15:18:06

Johns Hopkins Medicine Researchers at Johns Hopkins have devised a way to detect whether cells previously transplanted into a living animal are alive or dead, an innovation they say is likely to speed the development of cell replacement therapies for conditions such as liver failure and type 1 diabetes. As reported in the March issue of Nature Materials, the study used nanoscale pH sensors and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines to tell if liver cells injected into mice survived over...

"The Center for regenerative medicine introduces Genorthix system," according to Roman Garcia PT. (PRWEB) December 25, 2012 "The Center for regenerative medicine introduces Genorthix system." according to Roman Garcia PT. "The Genorthix system combines the fractal geometric re-constitutive effect of ultra-sound energy with the re-hydrating and pain reliever properties contained in the Genorthix Penetrating Pain Reliever cream. Now available to the public for the first time a home treatment...

The Axolotl, Ambystoma mexicanum
2014-02-03 08:59:54

Axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum) may also be referred to as the Mexican salamander or the Mexican walking fish. The Axolotl is a member of the Ambystomatidae family and although its common name may suggest it is a fish, it is an amphibian. Axolotl are found exclusively in Mexico. The species situates, near Mexico City, on the bottom of Xochimilco’s lakes. Unlike most salamanders, Axolotl keep its larval features throughout its entire life and very rarely ever emerge from water. A condition...
