A new way to look at tissue biopsies
Dark Daily    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Reading tissue biopsies with a new stain-free method could eventually help pathologists achieve faster and less subjective cancer detection. Should the technology prove viable, it would displace many of the longstanding tissue preparation methodologies used today in the histopathology laboratory. More

In tests, bone cells aid kidney recipients
The Associated Press via Arizona Daily Star    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
An experimental technique seems to be freeing some kidney-transplant patients from taking anti-rejection drugs. Researchers transplanted certain cells from the kidney donor's bone marrow along with the new organ. Five of eight transplant recipients were off immune-suppressing medication up to 2 1/2 years later, researchers said. More

Add spice to cut high-fat meal, reduce heart disease risk
NPR    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
VideoBriefNo need to be stingy with spices. Research from Penn State finds heavily spiced meals may do the heart good. The study found a spicy meal helps cut levels of triglycerides, a type of fat, in the blood — even when the meal is rich in oily sauces and high in fat. More

Study reveals how proteins begin DNA replication
R&D Magazine    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Before any cell can divide, it has to replicate its DNA. Scientists who want to know how normal cells work are keen to understand this process. As a step toward that goal, scientists have deciphered molecular-level details of the complex choreography by which intricate cellular proteins recognize and bind to DNA to start the replication process.

Tips for reducing hospital readmissions for heart failure patients
Becker's Hospital Review    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Under healthcare reform, hospitals may face financial penalties for preventable readmissions. Reducing readmissions can thus save hospitals money, improve patient care and create efficiencies. Michigan-based Spectrum Health developed a program to prevent readmissions. Its heart failure team focused on follow-up visits, transitions of care and an observation unit to keep heart failure patients at home after discharge. More

Computation dramatically improves resolution of electron microscopy
Medgadget    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Transmission electron microscopy relies on electronic lenses that focus the signal much like their optical brothers. And like in optical microscopy, the lenses themselves present challenges and barriers to achieving higher resolution imaging. Now researchers have demonstrated a method, electron ptychography, that does away with the lenses and uses computers to reconstruct the unfocused signal. More
