Ever notice how a cut inside the mouth heals much faster than a cut to the skin? Gum tissue repairs itself roughly twice as fast as skin and with reduced scar formation. One reason might be because of the characteristics of gingival mesenchymal stem cells, or GMSCs, which can give rise to a variety of cell types.
Scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore have established that collagen derived from fish scales could be effective for various biomedical applications such as wound healing.
Pancreatic cancer is one of the less common but deadliest cancers. Modified oncolytic adenoviruses represent an alternative to chemotherapy and targeted therapies, which have a high mortality rate.
Researchers at the University of Michigan have discovered a link between low thyroid hormone levels and wound healing complications.
Researchers at Uppsala University and SLU have found a new way of accelerating wound healing. The technology and the mode of action method published in the highly ranked journal PNAS involves using lactic acid bacteria as vectors to produce and deliver a human chemokine on site in the wounds.
The University of Texas at Arlington has received a new $227,000 grant funded through the federal government's Medical Technology Enterprise Consortium to develop the manufacturing process for the REHEAL glove, a bioengineered healing glove that delivers medicine to injured hands to speed up healing.
One small molecule that helps regulate gene expression plays a big role in keeping us safe from the machinations of cancer, scientists report.
In a new study, researchers have shown that a small molecule involved in the regulation of gene expression plays an important role in protecting against cancer.
