Laser tracks therapeutics, nutrients, toxins

May 15, 2017 -  
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) researchers have developed a laser-based tabletop device to measure carbon-14 (radiocarbon). In biological systems, carbon-14 ( 14 C ) can be used as a biochemical tracer to track micro-doses of nutrients, toxins and therapeutics in humans and animals...

Insulin-creating cell research may lead to better diabetes treatment

Oct. 28, 2010 -  
Beta cells, which make insulin in the human body, do not replicate after the age of 30, indicating that clinicians may be closer to better treating diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is caused by a loss of beta cells by auto-immunity while type 2 is due to a relative insufficiency of beta cells. Whether...
