Molecular causes of vestibular dysfunction and recovery in ototoxicity are determined

The vestibular system provides the sense of balance. One cause of vestibular dysfunction is the loss of sensory hair cells (HCs) following exposure to ototoxic chemicals. A research team at the University of Barcelona has contributed to better understand other causes of vestibular dysfunction and recovery in chronic ototoxicity. ... Full story

Medical Device Breakthrough: UV- light enabled catheter fixes holes in the heart without invasive surgery

Researchers from Boston Children's Hospital, the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and the Karp Lab at Brigham and Women's Hospital have jointly designed a specialized catheter for fixing holes in the heart using a biodegradable adhesive and patch. As the team reports in Science Translational Medicine, the catheter has been used successfully in animal studies to facilitate hole closure without the need for open heart surgery. ... Full story

Different than previously assumed: The dynamics of pluripotency transcription factors

Neuherberg - Scientists at the Helmholtz Zentrum Munich working in collaboration with colleagues at ETH Zurich have discovered that variations in the Nanog expression of embryonic stem cells are not necessarily linked to differences in the expression of other pluripotency factors. The results of the study, which has now been published in the scientific journal Nature Cell Biology, refute previously held assumptions. ... Full story
