The scanner will will the surgeon operated be be for performing for performing minimally invasive ‘laparoscopic ‘surgery on heart or other organs are connected, said Smith. In such operations, a more realistic view through tiny ‘keyhole’incisions, and the new scanner would surgeons work a more realistic view of the organ in which it. ‘All the technology available,’said Smith. ‘We just have to make the connections between the ultrasound scanner and the robots are in use by surgeons. Away There are no technical barriers to this right. ‘.
The team has shown since the scanner to to laparoscopically image other organs, including the spleen, liver and gall bladder. In the current study , the researchers used to identify the scanner coordinate indicates the exact location of an artificial lesion in a kind of artificial organ, or ‘phantom,’commonly used for testing imaging technologies. The researchers entered the coordinates into a simple robot, a biopsy needle is controlled, and the robot did the rest. Continue reading

During one such competition, a spontaneously mutated descendent of OC emerged in the population that not only outcompeted both OC and wild-type cells, but also showed renewed capacity for the production of fruiting bodies and spores in pure culture. Velicer name of the mutated PX and uses newly developed genome sequencing technology to identify a single point mutation , differs from the PX OC. Yu then performed experiments to show that this was a mutation, in fact, the direct cause of rise and success PX. However, it remained the mechanism by which this mutation fruiting body development in PX again a mystery.. Continue reading

Targeting this protein provides an important new mechanism for the control of resistant leukemia. ‘We believe that this discovery is of immediate relevance to patient care,’said Markus M Schenker, an investigator at The Saban Research Institute of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and lead author of the study?. A protein that Angeles Team Discovers Key to Fight Drug-Resistant LeukemiaAcute lymphoblastic leukemia or ALL is the most common form of childhood cancer. While most surviving children treated for this disease, respond in a subset of patients, the disease is not responding to treatment. A protein that leukemia cells use to stay, despite the chemotherapy alive: Now a team of researchers from researchers at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles and the University of California San Francisco have led identified the reason for this resistance.
