Washington: A national team of researchers has developed a first-of-its-kind, 3D-printed guide that helps regrow both the sensory and motor functions of complex nerves after injury. The groundbreaking research has the potential to help more than 200,000 people annually who experience nerve injuries or disease.
Washington: Using a tablet screening app could prove to be an effective method to aid in the effort to reduce the incidence of avoidable blindness in populations at high-risk for glaucoma with limited access to healthcare, according to a study released on Monday at AAO 2014, the 118th annual meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
Washington: New research by scientists at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UM SOM) and the Ottawa Heart Institute has uncovered a new pathway by which the brain uses an unusual steroid to control blood pressure. The study, which also suggests new approaches for treating high blood pressure and heart failure, appears in the journal Public Library of Science (PLOS) One.
Washington: The bacteria that live in the human gut may play an important role in immune response to vaccines and infection by wild-type enteric organisms, according to two recent studies resulting from a collaborative effort between the University of Maryland School of Medicine Institute for Genome Sciences and the Centre for Vaccine Development.
Hyderabad: Bharat Biotech and the University of Maryland Centre for Vaccine Development (CVD) on Monday announced that they had received a $4 million Strategic Translation Award from The Wellcome Trust for clinical development of a new vaccine against a lethal infectious disease common in sub-Saharan Africa.
Washington: Scientists have determined the genetic sequences of all 12 available strains of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria resistant to vancomycin—an antibiotic of last resort—and have demonstrated that resistance arose independently in each strain after it acquired a specific bit of genetic material called transposon Tn1546.
