CRISPR skin grafts could replace insulin injections for diabetes

Genetically modified skin grafts have protected mice from developing diabetes, suggesting the technique may help people with the condition.The method makes use of the gene that encodes a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). This hormone decreases appetite and helps regulate blood sugar levels by triggering the release of insulin, which removes excess glucose from the blood. [More]

 

Massive storm the size of planet Earth seen swirling close to Neptune’s equator

IVF babies tend to be lighter than others but end up heavier

Since the first “test tube” baby arrived 39 years ago, an estimated 6.5 million children have been born thanks to IVF and similar techniques. But we are only just starting to learn about the long-term health of people conceived using assisted reproduction techniques (ART), who may have a higher risk of obesity in later life. [More]

 

Hidden cancers detected by combining genetic tests with MRI

If genetic screening says you’re predisposed to cancer, what can you do about it? Whole-body scans could be a way to find tumors before they turn deadly. Combining a genomic screening with whole-body scans have identified 16 hidden tumors in 30 people. The technique should help identify curable cancers in people who are genetically at-risk and save lives. [More]
