This highly selective characteristic allowed the study of cells both on the surface of the skin and into deeper tissue.. According to the researchers femtosecond lasers become become important tools in biological studies because of concern the ability to strongly localized tissue. The laser protection in the research, in the August issue of the Optical Society open-access journal Biomedical Optics Express, at a wavelength of 800 nm, described the operation easier affected melanocytes and surrounding tissues.
Melanocytes are the cells of skin pigment, they are descendants has of a specific type of stem cell, the regenerative potential and other properties similar to some cancer cells.. Source The Office of Senator Frank R.brate biology research benefits from Cellular laser microsurgerywith an ultrafast femtosecond laser, researchers at Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, to characterize were able to draw on patterns, and remove individual melanocytes cells from a species of frog tadpoles without damage to surrounding cells and tissues.

Individuals with autism seem to have their brains use differently from those who do not have the condition, and researchers at the University of Montreal found that the autistic brain appears to have continued to co – developed areas in visual information processing, the BBC reported. But at the expense of the regions of the brain making and planning decision making and planning, there is less capacity for the areas in autistic brains, they found. – Welcome to autism issue. ‘On the brain’April is Autism Awareness Month, so of course there is a lot of ongoing discussion of these mysterious developmental disorder.
Anain: Inside autismIn the United States, 1 in 110 children have autism, which includes impairments in sociability and communication. It seems that wealthy than poor than poorer children receive an autism diagnosis, a study in the American Sociological Review. That means there are probably many children, especially those that milder forms of autism spectrum disorders, which need not be accounted for, according to the authors about U.S. (more…)
– By way of background, the authors wrote:.. Over the period of ten years ago had all study participants assess their cognitive functions. These included tests for:storage Vocabulary Aural comprehension Visual reading comprehension. Cites as cites as examples recall as many words as possible, the with the letter S , or started calling as many animal names as possible . Influence affect their findings were considered as the participant education level.
Of structural and socio-economic disparities and persistent racial segregation in the clustering of nursing home closures in poor and minority concentrated districts phenomenon phenomenon that resembles probably similar dynamics of inequalities in public schools, housing, environmental decline and other sectors.. The numbers were similar for hospital facilities. – The investigators wrote: Since not most nursing homes, a downward spiral in financial and quality performance before their eventual closure, one could argue that the demise of these institutions is not necessarily a concern experienced but in the broader context.

79, estrogen use a risk factor for heart disease among some younger postmenopausal women. Estrogen-alone arm of the study involved women who had previously undergone a hysterectomy Half of the women were given a form of estrogen known as conjugated equine estrogens, while the other half received a placebo. In 2004 in 2004, a year before the planned conclusion, because of concerns that estrogen , the risk of stroke and blood clots increased without benefit in terms of heart disease.
However, said Stefanick the study data not related to the timing hypothesis because only younger women were studied, so we do not know whether coronary calcium was higher or lower allocated in older women estrogen vs. Placebo. Furthermore, without a baseline computed, there is no data about changes over time. . (more…)
