Gene Therapy Successfully Treats Spinal Cord Injuries Without Side Effects

[ad_1] A new gene therapy that inhibits targeted nerve cell signaling effectively reduced neuropathic pain in mice with spinal cord or peripheral nerve injuries with no detectable side effects. In mouse studies, pain-blocking neurotransmitters produced long-lasting benefits without detectable side effects. An international team of researchers led by scientists at the University of California San […]

Old Skins Cells Reprogrammed To Regain Youthful Function

[ad_1] Findings could lead to targeted approach for treating aging. Research from the Babraham Institute has developed a method to ‘time jump’ human skin cells by 30 years, turning back the aging clock for cells without losing their specialized function. Work by researchers in the Institute’s Epigenetics research program has been able to partly restore […]
