Researchers utilize natural exosomes to deliver Parkinson's treatment directly to brain. Thoughts health innovators?

Researchers at the University of North Carolina have used exosomes, tiny bubbles of protein and fat produced naturally by cells, to bypass the body’s defenses and deliver a potent antioxidant directly to the brain to treat Parkinson’s disease.   The team…

New chemogenetic tool is the first to target different kinds of receptors on a neuron sequentially. Thoughts health innovators?

Researchers at the University of North Carolina and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have perfected a noninvasive ‘chemogenetic’ technique that allows them to switch off a specific behaviour in mice, such as voracious eating, and then switch it…

New blood-telomere test can predict cancer years before disease develops. Thoughts health innovators?

A distinct pattern in the changing length of blood telomeres, the protective end caps on human DNA strands, can predict cancer many years before actual diagnosis, according to a new study from Northwestern Medicine and Harvard University.  The pattern, a…

My favourite kind of innovations. Study finds $1 test using gold nanoparticles outperforms PSA screen for prostate cancer. Thoughts health innovators?

A test that costs less than a $1 and yields results in minutes has been shown in newly published studies to be more sensitive and more exact than the current standard test for early-stage prostate cancer.  The simple test developed by University of…

Researcher successfully implant and control light-sensitive opioid receptors in mice via optogenetics. Thoughts health innovators?

Despite the abuse potential of opioid drugs, they have long been the best option for patients suffering from severe pain. The drugs interact with receptors on brain cells to tamp down the body’s pain response. But now, neuroscientists at Washington…

The first ever study to map splicing changes during T cell development has been published. Thoughts health innovators?

RNA is both the bridge between DNA and the production of proteins that carry out the functions of life and what guides which and how much protein gets made. As messenger RNA (mRNA) is transcribed from DNA to carry genetic information out of the nucleus,…
