Fecal microbiota transplants improve cognitive impairment caused by severe liver disease

Added: 21.04.2017 15:39 | 14 views | 0 comments

Fecal transplantation of bacteria from one healthy donor into patients that suffer from hepatic encephalopathy, is safe and improves cognitive function compared with standard of care treatment for the condition, new research concludes. The study results also demonstrated that the number of hospitalizations following fecal transplantation plus antibiotics was two, compared to the standard of care arm, which was 11.

Organ donation: 10 minutes. 22 people. 54 percent.

At this moment, more than 118,000 people in the United States are in need of a lifesaving organ transplant. And 64 percent of them are currently on a waiting list – to which roughly 1 person is added every 10 minutes – according to the United Network of Organ Sharing (UNOS). That’s 75,868 people in line for a transplant. Unfortunately, only about half of them will actually receive the transplant they need this year. In an effort to encourage more people to register as organ and tissue donors, researchers are tackling the issue from a few different angles – from advocacy to research to policy.

Blind tadpoles learn visually with eyes grafted onto tail, neurotransmitter drug treatment

Added: 11.04.2017 0:46 | 3 views | 0 comments

Blind tadpoles were able to process visual information from eyes grafted onto their tails after being treated with a small molecule neurotransmitter drug that augmented innervation, integration, and function of the transplanted organs. The work, which used a pharmacological reagent already approved for use in humans, provides a potential road map for promoting innervation -- the supply of nerves to a body part -- in regenerative medicine.
