    Researchers grow first plant-based gel to help organoid development for biomedical applications

    Monash University researchers have created the world’s first bioactive plant-based nanocellulose hydrogel to support organoid growth and help significantly reduce the costs of research into cancer and COVID-19. This discovery by researchers in BioPRIA (Bioresource Processing Institute of Australia), Monash University’s Department of Chemical Engineering and the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute will develop organoids cheaper,

    Jellagen dispatches JellaGel™, the principal Collagen Type 0 Hydrogel taking available driving Extracellular Matrix

    Jellagen® Limited, a biotechnology company manufacturing high-value Collagen Type 0 derived from jellyfish, announce the launch of their JellaGel™ Hydrogel. 3-dimensaional Hydrogels make it possible for cells to grow and interact with all of their surroundings that makes a massive difference. Cells grown in a 3D model have been shown to be more natural, with

    New upkeep treatment for AML shows solid advantage for patients

    Patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), the most common form of leukemia in adults, that has gone into remission following initial chemotherapy remain in remission longer and have improved overall survival when they are given a pill form of the cancer drug azacitidine as a maintenance therapy, based on a randomized, international phase 3 clinical

    Study shows why children of obese moms have inclination to create metabolic illnesses

    A Brazilian study published in the journal Molecular Human Reproduction helps understand why overweight mothers often have children with a propensity to develop metabolic disease during their lifetime, according to previous research. According to the authors,”transgenerational transmission of metabolic disorders” may be associated with Mfn2 deficiency in the mother’s oocytes (immature eggs). Mfn2 refers to

    Retroviruses attacking the koala germline add to high malignant growth rates

    Koalas are facing multiple ecological and health issues which threaten their survival. Together with habitat loss – accelerated by last year’s devastating bush fires — domestic dog attacks and road accidents, they suffer from fatal chlamydial infections and extremely high frequency of cancer. The results are reported in the journal Nature Communications. The koala retrovirus

    Deforestation in the Amazon builds variety of antibiotic-resistant bacteria

    In Brazil, a study conducted by researchers affiliated with the University of São Paulo (USP) and collaborators showed that deforestation in the Amazon causes an increase in the diversity of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. An article on the study, published in Soil Biology and Biochemistry, compares the microorganisms that live in the land of indigenous forest with

    Researchers describe the systems that manage embryonic stem cells

    Scientists at the Proteomics Core Unit of the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO), headed by Javier Muñoz, have clarified the mechanisms, unknown to date, included in maintaining embryonic stem cells in the best possible condition for their use in regenerative medicine. The results, published in Nature Communications, helps to find novel stem-cell therapies for

    Study assesses stem cells’ capacity to forestall significant reason for death in preterm newborn

    A phase 2 clinical trial whose results were published today in STEM CELLS Translational Medicine might point to a way to conquer bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), a significant cause of death in preterm infants. The study, conducted by researchers at Samsung Medical Center, Sungkyunkwan University and Asan Medical Center Children’s Hospital in Seoul, evaluates the efficacy
