New procedure “rebuilds” teeth

University of Leeds researchers say dentists will soon have access to a new pain-free way of tackling dental decay that reverses the damage of acid attack and rebuilds teeth as new – all without drilling or filling. Tooth decay typically begins when acid produced by bacteria in plaque dissolves minerals in the teeth, causing microscopic […]

Regeneration Hinges On Cell Death

Medical science could be one step closer to understanding how a human limb might be regenerated or a spinal cord repaired. Reporting in Developmental Biology, scientists at The Forsyth Institute have discovered that some cells have to die for regeneration to occur. The study’s findings could provide key insights into the mechanisms necessary for therapeutic […]

Success With Limb Regeneration

While salamanders can regrow a leg, most animals don’t have the ability to replace missing limbs. But experimental results from the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, where researchers were able to regenerate a wing in a chick embryo, suggest that such regenerative powers exist innately in all vertebrates – including humans. The study, published in […]
