By combining two materials that are frequently used in surgical procedures, researchers at Northwestern University have created a synthetic "hyperelastic bone" material that could be printed via 3-D printers into shapes that could be further processed "on the fly" in the operating room.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which is characterized by obstruction to airflow that interferes with normal breathing, continues to challenge health care systems globally due to its high incidence of morbidity and mortality, imposing an enormous economic burden. This progressive disease, obstructing both large and small airways, results in a considerably impaired pulmonary function, poor quality of life and risk to exacerbate. People with moderate and severe COPD are particularly prone to exacerbations and the frequency of those exacerbations increases with the severity of the disease.
LONDON U.S. researchers based at New Hope Fertility Center in New York have announced the first baby born using spindle nuclear transfer (SNT) mitochondrial donation has been delivered safe and well at a clinic in Mexico.
The mother of the baby is a carrier of Leigh's syndrome, a severe neurological disorder characterized by progressive loss of mental and motor function. She previously had four miscarriages and gave birth to two children who died of the disorder, one at 6 years and the other at 8 months.READ MORE »
