American and Israeli Researchers’ Findings Could Make Kidney Transplants A Thing of the Past

http://goo.gl/JHyajH

It was long believed that the kidney is a “static” organ once it develops, but researchers in Israel and America recently discovered that, contrary to popular belief, the human kidney is capable of regenerating itself.

The study, conducted by researchers at Sheba Medical Center, Tel Aviv University, and Stanford University is set to change the way we think about our kidneys by identifying the precise cellular signaling responsible for kidney regeneration and exposing the multifaceted nature of kidney growth.

Kidney regeneration: not just confined to petri dishes

Such a discovery is revolutionary in the medical field as kidney regeneration could potentially serve as an alternative to kidney transplants. In the United States, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that nearly 10 percent of adults – more than 20 million people – suffer from chronic kidney disease, which is a condition in which the kidneys are damaged and cannot filter blood as effectively as healthy kidneys.

Dr. Benjamin Dekel, the principal researcher at Tel Aviv University, began researching the subject of kidney regeneration three years ago while on sabbatical at Stanford University. Though the laboratory experiments and stem cell research were conducted at Stanford, the results were analyzed by researchers at TAU and Stanford.

Hormone replacement therapy for less than five years increases ovarian cancer risk.

Ovarian cancer is slightly more common among women who take hormone replacement therapy (HRT), even for short amounts of time, according to the largest analysis (link is external) of the subject to date.

The findings revealed that women using HRT for just a few years were around 40 per cent more likely to develop ovarian cancer than women who had never used HRT – although the overall (absolute) risk remains small.

Alzheimer's - Blood Test
Early onset and asymptomatic progression are main hurdles in treating and managing #Alzheimer'sdisease at early stage. Recently, scientists have shown some progress in developing #bloodtest for early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. This may not cure the pathology but will significantly increase the quality of patients life. 

Intellects - Keeping your informed of latest discoveries.
Scientists have identified a set of 10 proteins in the blood which can predict the onset of Alzheimer's, marking a significant step towards developing a blood test for the disease. The study, led by King's College London and UK proteomics company, Proteome Sciences plc, analysed over 1,000 individuals ...
