Stanford University has designed a new technique that will be capable to restore the heart after a heart attack in the short term. According to BBC, scientists suggest to introduce bacteria that produce oxygen as a result of photosynthesis. Currently, the method was tested in rats. So, if a thrombus blocks a vessel, the heart experiences the oxygen starvation due to disturbed blood flow. But when a single-celled cyanobacterium Synechococcus elongatus capable of photosynthesis was implanted, it is possible to remove carbon dioxide and saturate the muscle cells in the heart with oxygen and sugar simultaneously.

14.06.2017

Scientists from the University of California have created a molecular compound for the control of Parkinson's disease - CLR01. It has been already tested on mice suffering from this neurodegenerative disease. CLR01 reduces the level of the toxic protein (alpha-synuclein) in the brain. This protein is associated with the development of Parkinson's disease, UPI.com reports.

Japanese scientists have analyzed the data of 4312 volunteers under 80 years and 530 people aged 95 and over (most people in this group were more than 100 years old). The experts have established that CLEC3B gene in long-livers had certain characteristics. CLEC3B gene encodes tetranectin protein that prevents the spread of cancer and promotes the formation of bone tissue, The Daily Mail reports.

Scientists from Darty Institute of Infections and Immunity at the University of Melbourne are sure that it is possible to stop the spread of influenza virus into the lungs. According to 9 News it is necessary to attack the virus in the nose. It turns out that the nasal cavity is the "home" for white blood cells fighting the virus. If these cells are activated, then the further spread of the inhaled particles of the virus can be stopped.

Doctors hope that embryonic stem cells will overcome serious diseases
