A weekly summary of research developments and discoveries at the National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Preserving sperm stem cells restores fertility in mice
Scientists stored stem cells that produce sperm for months and used them to restore fertility in male mice. The approach could potentially help young boys undergoing chemotherapy.
Method identifies disease-causing bacteria
A sensitive test accurately screened blood samples for the presence of any of the more than 300 bacteria known to cause disease in people.
How the brain keeps track of time
Researchers discovered a set of brain cells that keeps track of time in mice. The study suggests that there are separate brain circuits for recording information about time and places.
Antipsychotics not helpful for delirium in ICU
A study suggests that the common practice of prescribing antipsychotic drugs to treat delirium in intensive care units may need to be reassessed.
Immune culprits linked to inflammation and bone loss in gum disease
Researchers identified specific immune cells that, when triggered by bacteria, drive gum disease. The findings reveal potential treatment targets.
Vaccine protects animals against anthrax and plague
Scientists engineered a vaccine that protects animals from both anthrax and plague. After more development and testing, the approach could be used to combat public health threats.
Delayed pushing doesn’t help during labor
Women who pushed earlier during labor were as likely to have a vaginal birth as those who delayed, and had fewer complications. The finding may change recommendations made to many women.
Probiotic bacteria block harmful microbe
Researchers identified how Bacillus bacteria, which are used in many probiotic formulations, can prevent the growth of harmful Staphylococcus aureus, or “staph,” bacteria.
How gentle touch can turn painful after injury
Researchers identified a gene that’s needed for gentle touch to turn painful after an injury. The study uncovers a possible target for treatments to relieve pain caused by skin injuries.
Fecal transplants restore gut microbes after antibiotics
Using fecal transplants, researchers restored beneficial bacteria in cancer patients who received antibiotics for stem cell transplant procedures.
Antibody combination suppresses HIV
In an early trial, a combination of two antibodies suppressed blood levels of HIV for months after treatment in some people.
Wearable ultrasound patch tracks blood pressure
Researchers engineered a blood pressure sensor that uses ultrasound technology and can be worn as a flexible skin patch.
