French scientists at the Neel Institute have produced a graphene patch that records the condition of chronic wounds, such as ulcers suffered by the elderly or those with diabetes, at any time.
A species of a lipid that naturally helps skin injuries heal appears to also aid repair of common corneal injuries, even when other conditions, like diabetes, make healing difficult, scientists report.
Human stem cells have been regarded as one of the promising cell sources for cardiac regeneration therapy.
A taxa de cumprimento relativamente ao trihalometano, composto associado ao cancro da bexiga, é de 99,4%, salienta o ministério do Ambiente.
Greve é convocada para exigir o reinício das negociações do Acordo Colectivo de Trabalho. Paralisação coincidirá com a greve nacional decretada pela Frente Comum, pela Federação Nacional dos Professores e pela Federação de Sindicatos da Administração Pública.
Researchers at Lund University in Sweden have developed a new hydrogel based on the body's natural peptide defense.
Scientists at the Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Cardiovasculares (CNIC) have identified the molecular mechanisms that allow our cells to adapt to, protect themselves against, and survive mechanical stress.
The connective tissue cells known as fibroblasts are vitally important for our recovery from injury. Sensing tissue damage, they gravitate to the site of a wound, instigating an inflammatory response that mends damaged tissue.
Indiana University researchers have discovered that a chemical compound found in essential oils improves the healing process in mice when it is topically applied to a skin wound -- a finding that could lead to improved treatments for skin injuries in humans.
Researchers have identified a genetic signature with prognostic value for certain kinds of breast cancer. The discovery also contributes to a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms of pathological angiogenesis, the aberrant proliferation of blood vessels that occurs during cancer and other diseases.
