Sweden: Calcium Ions

Why Loud Sound Impair Hearing

Most people have experienced that their hearing is impaired and the ear feels numb after listening to loud sounds. After a while hearing returns to normal. Swedish scientists have discovered that a tiny structure in the cochlea known as the tectorial membrane plays an important role in this process, by acting as a storage depot for calcium ions read...

Engineered Tissue Model Could Accelerate the Development of New Treatments for Liver Diseases

MIT researchers have shown that an engineered model of human liver tissue can be used to investigate the effects of RNAi, helping to speed up the development of novel therapies. The researchers showed with the model that they could use RNAi to turn off a gene that causes a rare hereditary disorder. And using RNA molecules that target a different gene expressed by human liver cells, they were able to reduce malaria infections in the model’s cells. read...
