New Hyperpolarizer Enables Users to Double Polarization Levels for MR Imaging of Lungs

New technology has been devised to generate hyperpolarized inert xenon gas, which is used in conjunction with standard magnetic resonance imaging to create high resolution three-dimensional images of the human lung. This technique is a novel way to track extremely small changes in lung structure and lung function, and is used in basic and clinical research to study lung physiology and to monitor the efficacy of new drugs.   More...

Methodology Devised to Improve Stem Cell Reprogramming

In a study that provides scientists with a critical new determination of stem cell development and its role in disease, researchers have established a first-of-its-kind approach that outlines the stages by which specialized cells are reprogrammed into stem cells resembling those found in embryos. The research could have wide ranging, long-term implications in enhancing disease modeling and devising new therapies for patients.  More...

Innovative “Viro-Immunotherapy” Designed to Kill Breast Cancer Cells

A leading scientist has devised a new treatment that employs viruses to kill breast cancer cells. The research could lead to a promising “viro-immunotherapy” for patients with triple-negative breast cancer, an aggressive type of the disease that currently has no targeted treatment options.   More...

New Device Designed to See Communication between Immune Cells

The immune system is a complicated network of many different cells working together to defend against invaders. Effectively combating an infection depends on the interactions between these cells. A new device offers a much more detailed image of that specific cellular communication. Using this device, which captures pairs of cells and collects data on each as they interact with each other, researchers have already learned more about how T cells become activated during infection.

Genome Editing Application Has Potential in Modifying Human Stem Cells

A unique genome editing tool known as CRISPR has been used by researchers for several years to fit, replace, disrupt, or add to sequences of an organism’s DNA. Now, scientists have shown that the system also precisely and effectively changes human stem cells, which could become a new advance in the use of stem cells for treatment and disease research.  More...
