A new gene therapy created by US researchers appears to have cured eight infant boys born with a rare genetic disorder referred to as “Bubble Boy” disease. The new therapy was shown to safely correct the immune systems of eight infants affected by X-SCID.
Research published yesterday in The New England Journal of Medicine describes how an antibody that prevents HIV binding to human immune cells was shown to be able to suppress levels of HIV for up to four months.
Researchers have shown that maternal age may not influence the implantation potential of embryos in IVF or the likelihood of miscarriage. The study concludes that whilst older women produce fewer euploid (healthy) embryos, age does not affect implantation or live birth rates, if healthy, high-quality embryos are used.
Expert opinion on the consumption of dietary cholesterol, or eggs, is divided. Now, Victor W. Zhong and colleagues have published a study showing that the consumption of eggs is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases.
A recent study reviewed evidence from 23 controlled scientific studies which investigated the health effects of WiFi on animals, human cell lines, and humans to determine once and for all, whether WiFi has a detrimental effect on human health.
In a breakthrough research study, scientists have restored the cellular activity of brain cells within 300 pigs four hours after death. They were able to maintain the function of the cells for the next six hours.

Progress towards a cure for HIV has been the holy grail for HIV researchers since bursting into the public consciousness in 1981.
Painsomnia is experienced by anyone with a chronic pain causing them to lose sleep, which in turn lowers their tolerance to pain.
The vast majority of pollution-related deaths are linked to fine particles less than 2.5 millionths of a metre (known as PM2.5).
The purpose of antibody protein sequencing is to accurately deduce every single amino acid present in the primary sequence. This is an issue with isoleucine and leucine which have the same molecular weight. Rapid Novor has developed a technique to determine these with 100% accuracy.
In this interview, Marcel Lachenmann describes the importance of characterizing small molecules in the pharma, food and polymer industry and how NMR achieves this.
