Electronic Device May Help Diagnose Early Bladder Cancer

It is estimated that bladder cancer will affect 80,470 people in the USA this year, and about 17,670 deaths are likely to result from these cases. Doctors diagnose approximately half of all bladder cancers while the cancer is still in situ, while in about one-third the disease has already spread to other parts of the bladder. More...

Rare Inherited Enzyme Disorder Yields Insight into Fibrosis

Mammalian tissues and organs preserve their structural and functional homeostasis by means of their supportive connective tissue, a three-dimensional network of cells and extracellular matrix (ECM) with different topological characteristics depending on the organ/tissue in which it is embedded.
