  • Blood test predicts spastic cerebral palsy
    on June 22, 2018 at 4:00 am

    (Nemours) Researchers at Nemours and the University of Delaware have developed a blood test predictive of spastic cerebral palsy. Their study, published in BMC Bioinformatics, showed that DNA patterns in circulating blood cells can be used to help identify spastic CP patients (Crowgey et al.). New and better ways to identify infants with CP are needed so that interventions can start earlier for more children. […]

    on June 22, 2018 at 4:00 am

    (Mary Ann Liebert, Inc./Genetic Engineering News) To help prevent possible complications such as nonunion at large fracture sites, researchers have developed a cartilage matrix that mimics the early stages of repair and provides the essential structural and biological properties needed by bone-forming cells to divide and grow. […]

  • When low batteries are a good thing
    on June 22, 2018 at 4:00 am

    (Instituto de Medicina Molecular) A new study led by Marc Veldhoen, group leader at Instituto de Medicina Molecular João Lobo Antunes (iMM) shows how these cells are kept under control. The work published now in Science Immunology, reveals that the "batteries" of these cells have a different composition that reduces their capacity of producing energy, keeping them in a controlled activated mode. […]
