In just 7 hours, 18 minutes, US researchers went from collecting a blood sample to offering a disease diagnosis. This is the result of ultra-rapid DNA sequencing technology paired with massive cloud storage and computing.
Australian researchers developed: the world’s first metal-organic framework (MOF) antibody-drug delivery system that has the potential to fast-track potent new therapies for cancer, cardiovascular and autoimmune diseases.
The artificial tooth enamel (ATE) was produced using AIP-coated hydroxyapatite nanowires. This allowed the engineered structures to have an atomic, nanoscale, and microscale organization like natural enamel.
For the first time in the world, Israeli researchers have engineered 3D human spinal cord tissues and implanted them in lab model with long-term chronic paralysis.
The scientists, in collaboration with Singapore General Hospital, created VeCare, a bandage with a wearable sensor that can conduct real-time, point-of-care assessment of chronic wounds via an app.
A 30-year-old woman from the city of Esperanza, Argentina - the so-called Esperanza Patient - appears to be the second person whose immune system cleared the HIV-1 virus without antiretroviral therapy.
The genes in question are related to interferons, the body's frontline virus fighters. Knowing which genes help control viral infection can greatly assist researchers' understanding of factors that affect disease severity.
The life-changing surgery took place in January as was a success. The surgery took about 18 hours and about 50 specialists, including surgeons, nurses anesthesiologists, airway specialists and residents.
