Guided by CRISPR, Prenatal Gene Editing Shows Proof-of-Concept in Treating Congenital Disease before Birth

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

For the first time, scientists have performed prenatal gene editing to prevent a lethal metabolic disorder in laboratory animals, offering the potential to treat human congenital diseases before birth. The research offers proof-of-concept for prenatal use of a sophisticated, low-toxicity tool that efficiently edits DNA building blocks in disease-causing genes.

Implantable, biodegradable devices speed nerve regeneration in rats

Washington University in St. Louis

Peripheral nerve injuries leave people with tingling, numbness and weakness in their arms, hands and legs. Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and Northwestern have developed an implantable, bioabsorbable device that speeds recovery in rats by stimulating injured nerves with electricity.

Out Like a Light: Researchers ID Brain's 'Sleep Switch'

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

Two decades ago, Clifford B. Saper, MD/PhD, Chairman of the Department of Neurology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and colleagues discovered a set of nerve cells they thought might be the switch that turns the brain off, allowing it to sleep. In a new study, Saper and colleagues demonstrate in mice that that these cells – located in a region of the hypothalamus called the ventrolateral preoptic nucleus – are in fact essential to normal sleep.

Decision Support Tool Boosts Genetic Testing Knowledge in Breast Cancer Patients

Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan

Genetic testing for newly diagnosed breast cancer patients can help guide treatment and identify whether family members are at increased risk, but many patients aren't aware of these benefits. A new study shows that decision support tools used in tandem with genetic counselors can help patients understand.

How to Make a Lab-on-a-chip Clear and Biocompatible (With Less Blood Splatter)

Michigan Technological University

Lab-on-a-chip devices harness electrical signals to measure glucose, tell apart blood type and detect viruses or cancer. But biological samples need hafnium oxide for protection from the electric fields.

Sequencing RNA in 20,000 Cardiac Cells Reveals Insights into Heart Development and Disease

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

Scientists using a powerful new technology that sequences RNA in 20,000 individual cell nuclei have uncovered new insights into biological events in heart disease. In animal hearts, the researchers identified an array of cell types and investigated the “transcriptional landscape” in rich detail.
