National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences via Lab Manager
The liver is unique among organs in its ability to regenerate after being damaged. Exactly how it repairs itself remained a mystery until recently, when researchers supported by the National Institutes of Health discovered a type of cell in mice essential to the process.

Scientists say they've grown the world's most complete petri dish brain
The Washington Post
It's a tiny little thing, no bigger than a pencil eraser and certainly not capable of thinking for itself, but it's got all the major structures and 99 percent of the genes present in the brain of a 5-week-old fetus. In other words, scientists at Ohio State University say it's the most complete model of a human brain ever grown in a lab.

Side effects may lead breast cancer patients to skip drugs
Reuters
Breast cancer patients who report more side effects of their hormone therapy drugs and less confidence communicating with their doctors are more likely to intentionally or unintentionally miss a dose, according to a new study. "Endocrine" therapy, given as a daily tablet that acts to prevent hormones from helping the tumor to grow, is an important part of treatment for some types of early breast cancer.

Migrating cancer cells alter bone tissue to form tumors
Medical News Today
Most people who die from cancer die from metastatic disease — where tumor cells migrate from the original site and start growing tumors in other parts of the body, such as bone. Now, new research reveals fresh clues on how migrating cancer cells alter bone tissue to make it suitable for tumor growth.

Researchers suggest approach to fight adenoviruses in immunosuppressed patients
Saint Louis University via Infection Control Today
Using an animal model they developed, Saint Louis University and Utah State University researchers have identified a strategy that could keep a common group of viruses called adenoviruses from replicating and causing sickness in humans. "The adenovirus can cause colds and infections in the eyes and respiratory system and generally are not serious," says William Wold, Ph.D., senior author of the paper and chair of molecular microbiology and immunology at Saint Louis University.
