For the first time, researchers have shown that using Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) can effectively identify bone marrow cancer (myelofibrosis) in an experimental model. The findings, published in the journal Blood Cancer, may change the way this disease is diagnosed which is now through invasive bone marrow biopsies. Myelofibrosis is a slow evolving condition hallmarked […]
Mark Grinstaff and Marlena Konieczynska have developed a new hydrogen gel that acts as a barrier to infection for burns, keeps the wound moist, and—most important—can be washed off painlessly.
