Cutting the liver piece by piece

26/08/2014 - New surgical methods give hope to patients with cancer that has spread from the intestine to the liver. The disease can be changed from terminal to chronic by cutting the liver piece by piece using keyhole surgery. read more

Neuroscience and big data

25/08/2014 - Scientists can now monitor and record the activity of hundreds of neurons concurrently in the brain, and ongoing technology developments promise to increase this number manifold. However, simply recording the neural activity does not automatically lead to a clearer understanding of how the brain works. read more

Relaxing DNA strands by using nano-channels

22/08/2014 - With the widespread use of methods for DNA analysis and manipulation, it's certainly useful to find a way to unravel and relax the strands of this molecule that tends to form tangles spontaneously. One way is to use channels, or rather nano-channels, as Cristian Micheletti, SISSA research scientist, and Enzo Orlandini, of Padua University, did in a study. read more

Pain treatments less effective for those with irritable bowel

20/08/2014 - Our individual genetic make-up determines the effect that stress has on our emotional centers. These are the findings of a group of researchers from the Medical University Vienna. Not every individual reacts in the same way to life events that produce the same degree of stress. read more

Risks of postoperative cognitive side effects

19/08/2014 - Postsurgical cognitive side effects can have major implications for the level of care, length of hospital stay, and the patient's perceived quality of care, especially in elderly and fragile patients. A nationwide survey of Swedish anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists has found there is low awareness of the risks of cognitive side effects following surgery. read more

Novel treatment strengthens bones

18/08/2014 - An enzyme therapy may prevent skeletal abnormalities associated with the genetic disorder neurofibromatosis type-1, Vanderbilt investigators have discovered. The findings “suggest that we can make bone stronger and better by injecting this drug, and possibly prevent fractures in patients with neurofibromatosis.” read more

'Shape-shifting' material could help reconstruct faces

14/08/2014 - Researchers report that they have developed a "self-fitting" material that expands with warm salt water to precisely fill bone defects, and also acts as a scaffold for new bone growth. read more
