Washington University in St. Louis

For many older adults, the aging process seems to go hand-in-hand with an annoying increase in clumsiness.

Rates of Emergency Bowel Surgery Vary Wildly From State to State

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Johns Hopkins researchers have documented huge and somewhat puzzling interstate variations in the percentage of emergency versus elective bowel surgeries.

Growth Factor That Triggers Hair Follicle Generation Identified

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Researchers in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania have determined the role of a key growth factor, found in limited quantities in human skin cells, that helps hair follicles form and regenerate during the wound healing process. When this growth factor, called Fgf9, was overexpressed in a mouse model, there was a two- to three-fold increase in the number of new hair follicles produced. Researchers believe that this growth factor could be used therapeutically for people with various hair and scalp disorders. The study appears in an advance online publication of Nature Medicine.
