How Fat Becomes Lethal — Even Without Weight Gain
New research now adds to evidence that other tissues can step in to make glucose when the liver’s ability is impaired, and that the breakdown of fats in the liver is essential to protect it from a lethal onslaught of fat.

 

3D - Printed Jaw

3-D Printed Bone with Just the Right Mix of Ingredients
To make a good framework for filling in missing bone, mix at least 30 percent pulverized natural bone with some special man-made plastic and create the needed shape with a 3-D printer. That’s the recipe for success, scientists say.

 

Mouse scar tissue

Troublesome T Cells Have a Healing Side
Immune system cells linked to allergies also turn out to direct healing of mouse muscle wounds when paired with biologic “scaffolding” to support them. The finding adds to evidence that the immune system is key not just to fighting infectious and other diseases but also to kick-starting healing after an injury.

Lymphoma Overrides a Key Protein’s Quadruple Locks
Protein chemists are closer to explaining why certain blood cancers are able to crack a molecular security system and run rampant. Their discoveries in lab-grown human cells offer evidence that mutations in cancerous lymphoma cells break through not one but four “locks” on the protein CARD11.

Portion Control: Cells Found in Mouse Brain That Signal ‘Stop Eating’
While researching the brain’s learning and memory system, scientists say they stumbled upon a new type of nerve cell that seems to control feeding behaviors in mice. The finding adds significant detail to the way brains tell animals when to stop eating and, if confirmed in humans, could lead to new tools for fighting obesity.
