Foto: Reconstructed cartilage [16/04/2014] Scientists at the University of Basel report first ever successful nose reconstruction surgery using cartilage grown in the laboratory. Cartilage cells were extracted from the patient’s nasal septum, multiplied and expanded onto a collagen membrane. The so-called engineered cartilage was then shaped according to the defect and implanted.Tissue Engineering: Scientists Grow Cartilage to Reconstruct Nose - Read more

Skin: Sweat Glands Heal Injuries

Photo: Skin [05/02/2014] Our body’s sweat glands are a source of stem cells particularly suited to healing wounds – stem cells that form new skin cells and manage the healing process. They are not rejected by the body and can be obtained without a hospital stay.Skin: Sweat Glands Heal Injuries - Read more

Photo: Cells [15/08/2013] Regulatory T cells (or Tregs for short) guide all of the other immune cells. How Tregs become Tregs in the first place has been only incompletely understood – until now. Scientists have recently gleaned important new insights into the workings of these cells.Immune System: Lymph Nodes with Location Memory - Read more
