Transplanted human stem cells develop into broad range of tissues, persist over a year in research at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia
Adult human mesenchymal stem cells taken from bone marrow have been induced to develop into a wide range of normal tissues when transplanted into fetal sheep. The transplanted human cells have persisted for over a year without immune system rejection, in research with potential implications for tissue engineering in diseases such as muscular dystrophy.

Differences in foot structure associated with overuse injuries
A recent study by a Mayo Clinic orthopedic researcher and researchers from the Naval Health Research Center and Naval Medical Center sheds some light on factors involved in overuse injuries suffered by people who pursue intense training activities (1999-12-01)

Skull Base Institute at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to host fourth annual Skull Base Surgery Symposium
Eleven internationally recognized physicians and surgeons will comprise the faculty for the fourth annual Skull Base Surgery Symposium Nov. 4-6. Hosted by the Skull Base Institute at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the symposium is open to both physicians and non-physicians. Topics to be addressed include treatment of pituitary tumors, trigeminal neuralgia and microvascular decompression, radiosurgery in skull base surgery, fully endoscopic procedures, meningiomas, chordomas and more.

Tiny proteins may unleash big victories over cancer through new $10 million U-M tumor research effort
Tiny proteins produced by cancer cells may someday help doctors find tumors earlier, determine quickly how malignant they are and target them with customized therapies. Now, a five-year, $10 million effort at the University of Michigan will identify and apply these proteins using the latest technology and biomedical knowledge. (1999-10-11)

Some Neanderthals practiced cannibalism, shows find from French cave, as reported in the 1 October issue of Science
The best evidence yet that some members of a now-extinct species of human, the Neanderthals, practiced cannibalism has emerged at a cave site in France's Ard├Ęche region. This news release is also available in French. (1999-10-01)

Scientists Locate A Genetic 'On/Off Switch' In Diphtheria; Find May Yield Antibiotics That Won't Boost Bacterial Resistance
Researchers at Brandeis University and the Boston University School of Medicine have pinpointed a genetic repressor that can single-handedly morph diphtheria from a mild-mannered bacterium into a lethal parasite. This tiny complex could open up resistant strains of killers such as diphtheria, staph, and flesh-eating bacteria to a new class of drugs that won't induce resistance. (1998-11-05)

Broecker, both of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University; James E. Hansen, NASA/Goddard Institute of Space Studies in NY; and Paul A. Mayewski, Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space, University of New Hampshire. (1998-10-01)

New National Guidelines Make Pumping Iron And Aerobic Activities An Easier "Fit" Into Daily Life
Updated national exercise guidelines released this week by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) in Orlando show breaking up aerobic exercise into three 10-minute sessions throughout the day can be just as effective as one 30 minute session. (1998-06-05)

American Cancer Society Grant Extended For Wistar Study Of Molecular Changes Leading To Cancer
Wistar scientist, George C. Prendergast, Ph.D., has been awarded a 1-year extension on an ACS grant supporting research into the molecular changes that cause normal cells to become cancerous. His research focuses on Myc, a cancer- causing gene, and Bin1, a new gene product that is frequently missing or altered in tumor cells. (1998-05-20)

Two Simple Tests May Screen For Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Researchers suggest for physicians to use two simple tests to screen patients for carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). According to the study the best preliminary tests physicians can use to determine the presence of CTS are the square-shaped wrist and abductor pollicis brevis (or thenar) weakness tests. (1998-03-26)

User-Friendly Brace Helps Paraplegics To Walk
Dutch rehabilitation technologists have developed an orthopedic brace which makes it possible for paraplegics to carry out all kinds of everyday activities again. The brace is more versatile and easier to transport than previous models. It also allows the patient to bend his knees. The device was developed by a team from Twente University of Technology and 'Het Roessingh rehabilitation centre in Enschede. Funding was provided by the Netherlands NWO- Technology Foundation (STW). (1998-03-05)

Muscle-Bound Cells
On the cellular level, becoming muscle-bound is all a matter of who you bump into. Weizmann Institute scientists report in the October 15 issue of Genes and Development how musculature forms in embryos. (1997-10-15)

Little League Elbow Can Lead To Permanent Injury
Without simple but necessary precautions, (1997-05-02)

Stem Cell Implants Show Promise For Treating Torn Tendons
University of Cincinnati biomechanics researchers have shown that stem cell implants developed by Osiris Therapeutics, Inc. can greatly reduce the time needed to heal torn tendons (1997-04-02)

Noise Enhances Human Ability to Detect Tactile Sensation
A team of scientists led by Dr. James J. Collins of the NeuroMuscular Research Center and the department of biomedical engineering at Boston University has demonstrated that the presence of a certain level of background (1996-10-31)

Researchers Find Possible New Route to Making Cancer Cells Vulnerable
Researchers at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute at Duke University Medical Center have shown how drugs that stop organ transplant rejection also partially reverse drug resistance in certain cancer cells. (1996-08-02)
