Berkeley Lab Finds Skin Benefit in Cancer-inducing Protein

The lab suggests that the protein linked to the spread of several major human cancers may also benefit skin.

Researchers Find Hydrocyanine Sensors Allow ROS Imaging In vivo

Research conducted in Georgia reports that a family of sensors based on a hydrocyanine scaffold allows imaging of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in vivo.

Researchers Switch Stem Cell Production "On"

Scientists at the Imperial College in London have found a way to turn "on" the production of specific adult stem cells in bone marrow, a technique that could boost the body's ability to repair itself.

Top Scientific Innovations of 2008

Microfluidics, a white laser confocal instrument, a PET/MRI combined imaging system, and a continuing-focus microscopy instrument were ranked among the top ten life science inventions of 2008.

Sensitive Skin Syndrome: Relationships Among Factors

Sensitive skin is a subjective, lay term that many consumers claim affects their comfort when using products that contact their skin. Approximately one-half of individuals surveyed in two research studies considered themselves to have sensitive skin. Researchers know this condition exists, yet it is notoriously difficult to quantify in a meaningful and uniform way.

Study Shows Skin Creams Can Cause Skin Dryness

New research from Izabela Buraczewska at Uppsala University in Sweden has shown that normal skin can become drier from the use of some types of creams.

Healthy Skin Shown to Exclusively Host P. Acnes

Researchers conducted sequencing and phylogenetic analyses of approximately 5,700 amplified and cloned 16S rRNA genes to determine whether acne could be associated with as-of-yet uncultured bacteria.

Histogen Aesthetics to Apply Fibroblasts in Skin Healing

Histogen Aesthetics, LLC, will develop products based on newborn dermal fibroblasts that work synergistically with the skin and hair's own physiology to combat the effects of aging.

Aquaporin-3: Regulating Skin Cell Growth

Two previous articles in this series on aquaporins have discussed their history, mechanism and stimulation. The current article describes the role of AQP3 in regulating skin cell growth.

Lifestyle Changes May Help Control Cell Aging

A study done at the University of California has shown lifestyles changes in diet, exercise and stress management help control cell aging.

Researchers Develop Crystal Biosensors to Detect Protein-DNA Interactions

A new class of disposable, microplate-based optical biosensors capable of detecting protein-DNA interactions has been developed by researchers at the University of Illinois.

UCLA Doctors Research Undereye Bags

University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have reported that fat expansion in the eye socket is the primary cause of undereye bags.
