A New Test Published in AACC’s Clinical Chemistry Journal Could Help Prevent Kidney Failure in Diabetic Patients

American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC)

Researchers have developed a new test that could diagnose chronic kidney disease early in patients with type 2 diabetes. This novel method, published today in AACC’s Clinical Chemistry journal, could improve quality of life for diabetic patients by potentially catching chronic kidney disease in time to stop its progression to full-blown kidney failure.

3-D Printed Prototype Sets the Stage for Bionic Eye Replacements

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

Researchers at the University of Minnesota, with support from NIBIB, used a 3-D bioprinting technique to print photordetectors onto a curved surface. Through the combination of design innovation and the use of materials—including synthetic conducting polymers, functional electronics, and biological tissue—the team is creating prototypes of multiple replacement body parts, including skin, ears, spinal cord, and now a bionic eye.
