Flexible electronic skin aids human-machine interactions

Added: 14.12.2018 18:44 | 3 views | 0 comments

Human skin contains sensitive nerve cells that detect pressure, temperature and other sensations that allow tactile interactions with the environment. To help robots and prosthetic devices attain these abilities, scientists are trying to develop electronic skins. Now researchers report a new method that creates an ultrathin, stretchable electronic skin, which could be used for a variety of human-machine interactions.

Study questions certain treatments for diabetic patients at high risk for heart disease

Added: 14.12.2018 17:39 | 3 views | 0 comments

In patients with type 2 diabetes at high risk for cardiovascular disease, targeting blood sugar to normal levels reduced the risk for macroalbuminuria, but it had no impact on more significant kidney outcomes such as serum creatinine doubling or the need for dialysis or transplantation. Targeting low blood pressures or the use of fenofibrate to lower cholesterol increased the risk for doubling of serum creatinine, although it had no impact on the need for dialysis or transplantation.

Improved In vivo imaging of atherosclerotic plaque development

Added: 14.12.2018 17:39 | 3 views | 0 comments

Researchers have developed a method for quantitatively assessing atherosclerotic plaque buildup in mice. They transplanted X-ray-irradiated low-density-lipoprotein-knockout mice with bone marrow cells expressing near-infrared fluorescent protein, which subsequently developed into fluorescent macrophages. These macrophages congregated specifically in atherosclerotic plaques that arose after feeding on a high-cholesterol diet. In vivo imaging detected the amount of aortic plaque formed and its change over time, which could help in assessing the efficacy of anti-atherosclerotic drugs.

Genome editing reduces cholesterol in large animal model, laying human trial groundwork

Added: 14.12.2018 17:39 | 3 views | 0 comments

Using genome editing to inactivate a protein called PCSK9 effectively reduced cholesterol levels in rhesus macaques. This is the first demonstration of a clinically relevant reduction of gene expression in a large animal model using genome editing. The study describes a possible new approach for treating heart disease patients who do not tolerate PCSK9 inhibitors -- drugs that are commonly used to combat high cholesterol.
