Japan researchers target 3D-printed body parts

By LizaAVILA

(Tokyo-AFP) - Japanese scientists say they are on their way to being able to create custom-made skin, bone and joints using a 3D printer. Several groups of researchers around the world have developed small masses of tissue for implants, but now they are looking to take the next step and make them functional. Tsuyoshi Takato, a professor at the University of Tokyo Hospital, said his team had been working to create "a next-generation bio 3D printer", which would build up thin layers of biomaterials to form custom-made parts

Hope for muscular dystrophy patients: Harnessing gene helps repair muscle damage

By LizaAVILA

Researchers have successfully improved the ability of muscle to repair itself - by artificially increasing levels of the BMI1 gene in the muscle-specific stem cells of mice with muscular dystrophy. The BMI1 gene has been previously linked to the body's ability to regenerate tissue cells in areas such as blood or skin. Led by Queen Mary University of London and published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, the study provides the first proof of concept that manipulating the activity of this gene enhances the regeneration of the dystrophic muscle to a level where strength is visibly improved

Skin cancer: New mechanism involved in tumor initiation, growth and progression

By Sykes24Tracey

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) represents the second most frequent skin cancer with more than half million new patients affected every year in the world. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are a population of cancer cells that have been described in many different cancers, including skin SCCs and that feed tumor growth, could be resistant to therapy thus being responsible for tumor relapse after therapy.

Bacteria could contribute to development of wound-induced skin cancer

By JoanneRUSSELL25

Researchers at King's College London have identified a new mechanism by which skin damage triggers the formation of tumours, which could have important therapeutic implications for patients suffering with chronic ulcers or skin blistering diseases. The study, published today in Nature Communications, highlights an innate sensing of bacteria by immune cells in the formation of skin tumours. This molecular process could tip the balance between normal wound repair and tumour formation in some patients, according to researchers.

Fat cells shield against skin infections

By raymumme

Fat cells shield against skin infections (IANS) / 3 January 2015 For the study, the researchers exposed mice to Staphylococcus aureus, a common bacterium and major cause of skin and soft tissue infections in humans. New York: Researchers have discovered that fat cells below the skin help protect you from bacteria. These skin fat cells known as adipocytes produce antimicrobial peptides that help fend off invading bacteria and other pathogens, the findings showed, pointing to a previously unknown role for the dermal fat cells.

The good role fat cells play in protecting us from disease

By LizaAVILA

When it comes to skin infections, a healthy and robust immune response may depend greatly upon what lies beneath. In a new paper published in the January 2, 2015 issue ofScience, researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine report the surprising discovery that fat cells below the skin help protect us from bacteria. Richard Gallo, MD, PhD, professor and chief of dermatology at UC San Diego School of Medicine, and colleagues have uncovered a previously unknown role for dermal fat cells, known as adipocytes: They produce antimicrobial peptides that help fend off invading bacteria and other pathogens
