‘Dirty John’ and a Safety Plan for Domestic Violence

Johns Hopkins School of Nursing

Today we have a good understanding of the pattern of dangerous behaviors abusive men use to manipulate their partners. However, most women, their friends, and their family members do not have access to safety information. Dirty John presents an opportunity for women in abusive relationships to learn more about developing a personalized, practical safety plan for when in danger.

Tiny Generators Turn Body Motion Into Weight Control and Wound-Healing Therapies

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Bioengineers have developed implantable and wearable nanogenerators that create electrical pulses when compressed by body motions. The pulses controlled weight gain and enhanced healing of skin wounds in rat models.

Whole Genome Sequencing Method May Speed Personalized Treatment Of Drug-Resistant Infections

Johns Hopkins Medicine

Researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine say they have added to evidence that rapid resistance gene sequencing technology can accurately speed the identification of specific antibiotic-resistant bacteria strains that sicken and kill some patients. A report on a proof of concept study, published in the January 2019 issue of Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, suggests the technology has the potential to hasten the “personalized” choice of antibiotics critically ill patients need.

NIH researchers rescue photoreceptors, prevent blindness in animal models of retinal degeneration

NIH, National Eye Institute (NEI)

Using a novel patient-specific stem cell-based therapy, researchers at the National Eye Institute (NEI) prevented blindness in animal models of geographic atrophy, the advanced “dry” form of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which is a leading cause of vision loss among people age 65 and older. The protocols established by the animal study, published January 16 in Science Translational Medicine (STM), set the stage for a first-in-human clinical trial testing the therapy in people with geographic atrophy, for which there is currently no treatment.

Study Defines Differences Among Brain Neurons That Coincide With Psychiatric Conditions

Johns Hopkins Medicine

It's no surprise to scientists that variety is the very essence of biology, not just the seasoning, but most previous studies of key brain cells have found little variability in a common cell process that involves how genetic information is read and acted on.

Bioactive Scaffolds Guide the Way to Sore Knee Relief, Cartilage Repair

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

NIBIB-funded researchers have developed a 3D-printed scaffold coated in aggrecan, a native cartilage component, to improve the regeneration of cartilage tissue in joints. The scaffold was combined with a common microfracture procedure and tested in rabbits. The University of Maryland researchers found the combination of the implant and microfracture procedure to be ten times more effective than microfracture alone.
