[22/05/2012] Until now, curing neurological disorders has been a vision of the future. Scientists at the LIFE & BRAIN Centre in Bonn, Germany, however have come a bit closer to achieving this with a new procedure and are now able to convert skin cells into nerve cells.Nerve Cell Production: “We can convert skin cells into nerve cells more efficiently” - Read more

Prenatal Medicine - Safely Through Pregnancy

Providing the best conditions for the unborn life - that is the goal of prenatal medicine. However, a lot of questions have to be considered, because a diagnosis does not always offer an opportunity for therapy.Prenatal Medicine - Safely Through Pregnancy - Read more

[08/05/2012] Drugs that treat brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease or multiple sclerosis are most effective directly where they are needed – in the brain. Unfortunately, it is difficult to develop drugs that are capable of getting there specifically, since the so-called blood-brain barrier prevents this from happening. However, now a team led by Doctor Heiko Manninga succeeded in doing precisely that. Drugs Ferry: ”We are not limited to one active ingredient group or one active ingredient“ - Read more

Preemies: “The anatomical maturation of the lung makes a gas exchange possible after the 22nd week of pregnancy at the earliest“

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[02/04/2012] In the event of a premature delivery, the lung of a newborn child is often not able to assume its function. One reason for this: it lacks a tenside called surfactant (surface active agent), that makes sure that the lungs don’t stick together during the breathing process. MEDICA.de spoke to Professor Peter Bartmann, Director of Neonatology at University Hospital Bonn, on how preemies can be helped.Preemies: “The anatomical maturation of the lung makes a gas exchange possible after the 22nd week of pregnancy at the earliest“ - Read more

Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury: “The lungs are no longer airtight“

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[01/04/2012] Across Germany nationwide there are currently 12,000 patients waiting for an organ transplant, but available donor organs, like lungs for instance are still in short supply. In addition, transport to the patient is tricky: oftentimes organs get damaged. Why is that? Now researchers discovered why.Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury: “The lungs are no longer airtight“ - Read more
