The United States has deliberately “fanned the panic” due to the outbreak of the new 2019-nCoV type of coronavirus and is evacuating its citizens from China, instead of offering Beijing substantial assistance in fighting the spread of previously unknown pneumonia.

For the first time in history, laboratory-grown heart muscle cells transplanted into humans

Scientists from the Japanese University of Osaka reported successful and unique transplantation. They decided to treat the patient's heart, but instead of organ transplantation, they completely used laboratory-grown heart muscle cells. On the damaged areas of the human heart, they placed decomposable sheets (0.1 mm thick and 4-5 cm long), which contained cells of the heart muscle. They were grown from induced pluripotent stem cells. These are cells that are taken from various tissues, and then reprogrammed using genetic engineering methods. A patient who has a new heart muscle transplant suffers from ischemic cardiomyopathy. Usually this disease requires a complete organ transplant. But scientists hope that muscle cells will secrete a protein that will help restore blood vessels and improve heart function. Professor Yoshiki Sawa during a press conference.

Are Korean children more native than Russians?

Russia has decided to allocate $ 4.8 million to finance a project to reduce child mortality in the DPRK. But why in North Korea, and not in Russia? Or do we have no problem of child mortality? Of course, the case reported by the Russian Embassy in the DPRK is good from a global point of view.

Pigs with organs for transplantation to humans were born in China

EGenesis has announced the birth of genetically modified pigs whose organs are compatible with humans. This is necessary for transplantation. During editing, animals lost three genes, received nine, and also lost 25 viruses propagating in the genome. Most importantly, pigs are healthy, can continue their kind, and their cells are not rejected by the human immune system. First, the researchers took a culture of fibroblasts from the animal’s ear, and then introduced the CRISPR / Cas9 system molecules to cut three genes from the DNA that cause the most severe rejection in the human body. The researchers also introduced nine new human genes needed to suppress the immune response and blood clotting. After that, pigs of the first generation appeared. However, they carried viruses in themselves, so scientists continued to work. The result is animals whose organs can be used for transplantation in the future. Scientists said they plan to Continue Reading
