This Scientific Discovery Could Lead To The Fountain Of Youth = an age predictor of cells = that references 353 specific DNA sites in the body where methylation is impacted by age.= healthy breast 3 years older = for breast cancer, the tissue adjacent to tumor 12 years older = tumor itself was 36 years ahead of schedule.= pluripotent stem cells resets the epigenetic clock to zero.
Zapping Deadly Bacteria Using Space Technology:MicroPlaSter beta version of the atmospheric plasma device for chronic wound treatment. Using plasma -- electrically charged gas -- Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics director Gregor Morfill is developing ways to kill bacteria and viruses that can cause infections in hospitals. "What we have with plasma is the possibility to supplement our own immune system," says Dr Morfill.
The University of Leicester has identified a major pathway leading to brain cell death in mice with neurodegenerative disease. The team was able to block the pathway, preventing brain cell death and increasing survival in the mice.
