MRI glove enables imaging of moving joints
A flexible glove enables MRI scans of a moving hand.
How opioid drugs activate receptors
Researchers found that opioid drugs and the brain’s natural opioids activate nerve cell receptors differently.
Squirrel hibernation tricks suggest medical uses
Understanding the ways that animals survive hibernation during cold weather could help researchers design better methods for storing human tissues for transplants.
Mediterranean diet may slow development of Alzheimer’s disease
Researchers found that eating a Mediterranean diet slows some changes in the brain that may indicate early Alzheimer’s disease.
Spinal cord stimulation improves hand grip after cervical spinal injury
A noninvasive treatment helped six people with cervical spinal cord injuries improve their hand strength and dexterity.
Butterfly wing inspires design of glaucoma sensor
Inspired by a clear butterfly wing, researchers designed a tiny implantable sensor to measure eye pressure. With further development, it could be tested in people.
Healthy habits can lengthen life
Researchers found that people who maintained five healthy lifestyle factors lived more than a decade longer than those who didn’t maintain any of the five.
Bacteria therapy tested for common skin disease
In a small study, an experimental treatment using bacteria normally found on healthy skin reduced the severity of a common skin disease called atopic dermatitis.
Biomarker predicts benefit from immunotherapy
Researchers found a biomarker that, if confirmed, could be used to identify which people with chronic lymphocytic leukemia would benefit from CAR T-cell therapy.
Gene therapy reduces need for transfusions in severe blood disorder
Gene therapy reduced or eliminated the need for blood transfusions in patients with a severe blood disorder called beta-thalassemia.
Experimental male contraceptive blocks sperm movement
Researchers developed a compound that temporarily interferes with sperm motility in rhesus macaques. The study might point the way toward a reversible male contraceptive.
Dietary fiber protects obese mice from arthritis
A study in obese mice found that boosting the growth of certain gut bacteria with a fiber known as oligofructose reduced osteoarthritis.
