Immune Cells May Heal Bleeding Brain After Strokes

While immune cells called neutrophils are known to act as infantry in the body's war on germs, a National Institutes of Health-funded study suggests they can act as medics as well. By studying rodents, researchers showed that instead of attacking germs, some neutrophils may help heal the brain after an intracerebral hemorrhage, a form of stroke caused by ruptured blood vessels. The study suggests that two neutrophil-related proteins may play critical roles in protecting the brain from stroke-induced damage and could be used as treatments for intracerebral hemorrhage.

The research is in Nature Communications. (full open access)

We can hope.
Following the publication yesterday of a paper in Nature Geoscience which found humanity's "carbon budget" is somewhat larger than previously estimated, David Roberts sets out this and two other research publications looking at mitigation strategies which he argues together offer some hope that a limiting global temperature rise to 1.5C "may not be impossible yet". #ClimateChange

I used to be amused by emails claiming Nibiru is going to kill us or the Earth is flat. I'm not amused any more.
