Disarming Gene Therapy Approach

Nature Biotechnology

In this issue, researchers devise a method that could one day be used to educate a patient's immune cells to ignore the presence of the adenoviral vector used for gene therapy. By pretreatment with genetically manipulated antigen-presenting cells, they have successfully achieved prolonged adenoviral gene therapy in mice that avoids the production of deleterious immune responses.

Human Neural Stem Cells Branch out

Nature Biotechnology

In this issue, two groups report the isolation of neural stem cells from humans that could ultimately be used in cell replacement and gene therapies for patients with neurodegenerative disease or paralysis. The studies provide ample evidence that these are genuine stem cells capable of differentiating into the myriad types of nerve cell that make up the human nervous system.

New Radio Antennas May Cool Car Interiors, Defrost Car Windows

Ohio State University

Engineers at Ohio State have found a way to convert two common car window components into AM/FM radio antennas. The marriage of these two technologies may lead to invisible radio antennas that not only receive AM and FM signals, but also defrost windshields.

It's Not My Fault: Interest in Earthquakes

Purdue University

A new look at the information on a 1971 California earthquake shows that several nearby faults were activated during the temblor, supporting evidence from more recent earthquakes that nearby faults may contribute to earthquake damage.
