  • 'Hyperhotspots' could predict skin cancer risk November 13, 2019
    Scientists report the discovery of 'hyperhotspots' in the human genome, locations that are up to 170-times more sensitive to ultraviolet radiation (UV) from sunlight compared to the genome average.
  • Spray painting fiber bandages onto wounds November 12, 2019
    Researchers have developed a portable electrospinning device with a confined electric field that can safely deposit bandages and drugs directly onto biological surfaces, using air to spray the fibers out onto the surface, like a can of spray paint. The device can be used to cover wounds and provide controlled drug release over time.
  • Why beta-blockers cause skin inflammation November 7, 2019
    Beta-blockers are often used to treat high blood pressure and other cardiovascular diseases. However, in some patients they can trigger or exacerbate psoriasis, an inflammatory skin disease. Scientists have now found a possible cause for this.
  • Some skin cancers may start in hair follicles November 4, 2019
    Some of the most deadly skin cancers may start in stem cells that lend color to hair, and originate in hair follicles rather than in skin layers.
  • Lymphatic system found to play key role in hair regeneration November 1, 2019
    To grow new hair, stem cells throughout the skin must work in sync. Researchers have discovered the molecular communication tool, part of the lymphatic system, that the cells use to synchronize their activities.
