Scientists reverse fibrosis in preclinical studies – Lung and Liver The publication reports on a new target: a dopamine receptor. The authors found that the receptor is unique to lung and liver fibroblasts. Stimulating it blocks YAP and TAZ, reducing and reversing the growth and scar-forming abilities of […]
Cognitive decline reversed 30 years in 6 weeks Cognitive decline reversed 30 years in 6 weeks After just 1 ½ months, participants increased their cognitive abilities to levels similar to those of middle-aged adults, 30 years younger. Control group members, who did not take classes, showed no change […]

Type 1 Diabetes Reversed with New Beta Cell Implant (Animal Model) Researchers have successfully created a novel biomaterial that can be seeded with insulin-producing beta cells. Implantation of the beta cell-seeded biomaterial reversed diabetes in a mouse model by effectively normalizing glucose levels and significantly increasing survival.
Paralysis Reversed, neuroprosthetic rehabilitation (Animal Study) Paralysis Reversed, neuroprosthetic rehabilitation (Animal Study) The therapy triggers the growth of new connections from the motor cortex into the brain stem and from the brain stem into the spinal cord, thus reconnecting the brain with the spinal cord below the injury. […]
Dietary antioxidants may help repair the Lungs Over a 10 year period researchers observed that regular intake of tomatoes may help slow the natural decline in lung function among all adults as well as other findings. Dietary antioxidants and ten-year lung function decline in adults from the ECRHS […]
