Contents: Science Progress Volume 93 Part 2 2010

Posted on 25. June, 2010.

Science Progress issue 2 2010 has a strong biomedical theme. Mesenchymal stem cells have the ability to modulate the immune system opening a wide range of therapeutic applications, mainly for autoimmune diseases and graft-versus-host disease. The idea of repairing damaged neuronal circuitry in the mammalian central nervous system has challenged neuroscientists for centuries: can developmental signals be used to regenerate projection neuron subtypes? With more powerful and selective agents, one of the main problems in organ transplantation is a result of its success, namely a shortage of organ donors. Finally different aspects of plant pathology are analysed. First plant poisons and their phytochemistry are discussed. Sage is a well know herb but its hallucinogenic properties are also of scientific interest.
