Cell transplantation procedure may one day replace liver transplants
Cell Transplantation Center of Excellence for Aging and Brain Repair via Medical Xpress
Liver transplantation is currently the only established treatment for patients with end stage liver failure. However, this treatment is limited by the shortage of donors and the conditional integrity and suitability of the available organs. Transplanting donor hepatocytes (liver cells) into the liver as an alternative to liver transplantation also has drawbacks as the rate of survival of primary hepatocytes is limited and often severe complications can result from the transplantation procedure.

Noncoding RNAs: A cache of cancer clues?
Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News
In the postgenomic era, the numerous and diverse noncoding RNA species once dismissed as "junk RNA" are increasingly seen as treasure. Noncoding RNAs, we now know, have diverse functions in health and disease. Some in the field believe that we have only started to appreciate the riches of noncoding RNA. The ultimate jewels? They may prove to be previously hidden connections with cancer.

Study identifies key factors that influence Alzheimer's disease
By Denise A. Valenti
Using a large meta-analysis study of the literature related to Alzheimer's disease, scientists identified four medical treatments and four dietary habits that may contribute to a lower risk of Alzheimer's. The research was reported in a recent issue of Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry. The scientists found medical treatment with estrogen, statins, anti-hypertensive medications or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs were protective factors related to Alzheimer's disease.

Modified bacteria become a multicellular circuit
R&D Magazine
Rice University scientists have made a living circuit from multiple types of bacteria that prompts the bacteria to cooperate to change protein expression. The subject of a new paper in Science, the project represents the first time the Rice researchers have created a biological equivalent to a computer circuit that involves multiple organisms to influence a population. The researchers' goal is to modify biological systems by controlling how bacteria influence each other. This could lead to bacteria that, for instance, beneficially alter the gut microbiome in humans.
