3-D engineered bone marrow makes functioning platelets

Science Daily - Wed, 18/02/2015 - 5:31pm
An international research team has reported development of the first three-dimensional tissue system that reproduces the complex structure and physiology of human bone marrow and successfully generates functional human platelets. Using a biomaterial matrix of porous silk, the new system is capable of producing platelets for future clinical use and also provides a laboratory tissue system to advance study of blood platelet diseases.

A bodyguard for your ears: Scientists discover novel pain sensors in inner ear that warn of dangerously loud noise

Science Daily - Wed, 18/02/2015 - 5:30pm
Our hearing has a secret bodyguard, a newly discovered connection from the cochlea to the brain that warns of intense incoming noise that causes tissue damage and hearing loss. Scientists believe it's the ear's novel pain system designed to protect it from dangerous noise. Because the ear doesn't have the nerve cells that normally detect pain, it needs its own alert system. The findings could usher new treatments for painful hearing conditions like tinnitus and hyperacusis.

Researchers discover promising targets for treating allergies, asthma

Science Daily - Wed, 18/02/2015 - 5:30pm
More than 30 genes that have strong effects on Immunoglobulin E, allergies and asthma have been discovered, reports an international team of scientists. The researchers also found that the genes are concentrated in eosinophils, a white cell that ignites inflammation in asthmatic airways. The genes indicate when the eosinophils are activated and primed to cause the most damage. The newly found activation signals provide a possible means of directing treatments by predicting who will respond before starting therapy.

New target for treating asthma found

Science Daily - Wed, 18/02/2015 - 5:29pm
The protein Mucin 5AC plays a critical role in airway hyperreactivity, a characteristic feature of asthma that makes it difficult to breathe, researchers have found. In experiments with mice, the scientists found that genetic removal of Muc5ac eliminated airway hyperreactivity.

Mucus retained in cystic fibrosis patients' cells leads to potentially deadly infections

Science Daily - Wed, 18/02/2015 - 5:29pm
Cystic fibrosis mucus actually gets stuck inside some of the cells that create it, rather than simply becoming stuck on the outside linings of organs, researchers have found, which can increase the risk of deadly infection for the patient.
