Combining genetic information with EMRs to pinpoint childhood epilepsies

A team of researchers at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) affiliated with the CHOP Epilepsy Neurogenetics Initiative (ENGIN) further bridged the gap between genomic information and clinical outcome data by systematically linking genetic information with electronic medical records, focusing on how genetic neurological disorders in children develop over time. The findings were published today in […]

Long-term risks of joint implants

Using highly complex analytical techniques, a group of researchers from Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin were able to observe in detail how different metals are released from joint implants and accumulate in the surrounding bone tissue. Findings showed a steady release of metals from various implant components. In contrast to previous assumptions, this was not related […]

Scientists replace malfunctioning ‘vacuum cleaner’ cells linked to neurological disorders

Researchers at Fudan University in Shanghai, China have developed three different techniques that successfully replace almost all malfunctioning microglia—each technique with its own advantage in application. The researchers published their findings on Aug 11, 2020 in Cell Reports. Microglia are a specialized type of immune system cell that are found throughout the central nervous system […]
