Daytime wounds heal faster than injuries at night, discover researchers

The key to accelerated daytime wound healing, the scientists found, was that skin cells moved more rapidly to repair the wound and there was also more collagen, the main structural protein in skin, deposited around the wound site

Daytime wounds heal faster than injuries at night, discover researchersOur internal body clocks cause wounds such as cuts and burns sustained during the day to heal around 60 per cent faster than those sustained at night, scientists have discovered in a finding that has implications for surgery and wound-healing medicines. It found burns sustained at night took an average of 28 days to heal, […]

This is why your skin doesn’t leak all your blood and guts

It may seem impossible that sweat can leave but other fluids cannot. Science, however, has the answer to how we keep it all on the inside

This is why your skin doesn’t leak all your blood and gutsOur bodies are giant sacs of blood and guts. But unless we are impaled, we don’t spring a leak and empty out everywhere. It may seem impossible that sweat can leave but other fluids cannot. Science, however, has the answer to how we keep it all on the inside. DNews host Jules Suzdaltsev explains that […]

Is there any way to prevent scars?

Despite many scientific advances, there is no definitive way of preventing or treating scars yet. But there are things that doctors and patients can do to reduce the extent of scar development

Is there any way to prevent scars?Scars are caused by the body’s inability to regenerate the complex connective tissue in our skin after injury. An anonymous researcher shared his own personal experiences, when it comes to talking about scars, he explained saying, “During my years as a research scientist, and I became very familiar with the sight of scars. From the […]

Researchers use human skin stem cells to generate new brain cells

This finding is an important step in use of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells for targeted approaches to better understand and potentially treat neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's

Researchers use human skin stem cells to generate new brain cellsUniversity of California, Irvine, neurobiologists and their colleagues have used human skin cells to create a method to generate one of the principle cell types of the brain called microglia, which plays a key role in preserving the function of neural networks and responding to injury and disease. This finding is an important step in […]
