Clinical Trial Targeting Lung Cancer, Plus Promising Osteoporosis and Incontinence Research get Support from Stem Cell Agency

The five-year survival rate for people diagnosed with the most advanced stage of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is between one and 10 percent. To address this devastating condition, the Board of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) today voted to invest almost $12 million in a team from UCLA that is pioneering a

Chlorinated Lipids Predict Lung Injury and Death in Sepsis Patients

In a study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation Insight, Saint Louis University scientists have found that elevated levels of chlorinated lipids are linked to sepsis, lung injury and death. The finding may offer a way to diagnosis and treat sepsis earlier, saving lives and avoiding serious side effects. Sepsis is a dangerous immune response

Novel gene-editing method improves vision in blind rats

December 6, 2016 At a Glance Scientists developed a targeted gene-replacement technique that can modify genes in both dividing and non-dividing cells in living animals. The method enabled replacement of a faulty gene in neurons and partially restored vision in blind rats. The technique thus holds promise as a potential tool for gene therapy. The
