Study: Stem cells may ease urinary incontinence
HealthDay News
For the millions of women who can't cough, sneeze or laugh without losing bladder control, researchers are testing a treatment that uses stem cells to regenerate weakened urethra muscles. In a small pilot study, European researchers found that injecting stem cells isolated from patients' own fat tissue improved or eliminated stress incontinence in all participants within a year.

Researchers show the danger of dormant viruses in the body
By Dorothy L. Tengler
Sepsis is caused by many different types of microbes, including bacteria, fungi and viruses. This is a major challenge in the intensive care unit of hospitals, where it is one of the leading causes of death. Every year, severe sepsis strikes about 750,000 Americans. It's been estimated that between 28 to 50 percent of these people die — far more than the number of deaths in the United States from prostate cancer, breast cancer and AIDS combined. Now, a provocative new study links prolonged episodes of sepsis to the reactivation of otherwise dormant viruses in the body.

New technology developed to diagnose cancer cells
PLOS ONE via Health Canal
In pathology, cells and cell nuclei are usually examined using a microscope for biomarker expressions in tumors. This analysis is used to weigh up the treatment options for patients who have cancer, for example. The certainty of the diagnosis depends greatly on the individual pathologist.

Scientists: Bacteria can evolve biological timer to survive antibiotics
The Hebrew University of Jerusalem via ScienceDaily
When exposed to repeated cycles of antibiotics, bacteria can evolve a new adaptation by remaining dormant for the treatment period to survive antibiotic stress. The results show for the first time that bacteria can develop a biological timer to survive antibiotic exposure.
