    I finally found an interesting thing I could share because it's in english. A video on the ENS youtube channel, there are interesting ones in physics too

    Had to read an article for class, sort of a review about autophagy (the topic in which the 2016 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine is interested, he's quoted in the artice), figured it may be interesting (to PoPs in particular because they mention it as a possible mechanism of positive effects induced by alimentary regimes )

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22078875

    Hope you get access to the full article

    Looks interesting. I'll try to read it today.

    Here's a link to the PDF: http://www.cell.com/cell/pdf/S0092-8674(11)01276-1.pdf

    "Wang identified 160 possible protein candidates and stopped each of them being produced one by one in lab-grown human cells, in order to determine whether cell death would be prevented if one protein was eliminated. Of all the 160 proteins, the team identified macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) at the heart of the cell-death process."We're interested in finding out whether MIF is also involved in Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases,"

    Potentially huge, especially for irreversible conditions like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. If the macrophage migration inhibitory factor proves to be the single cell that 'deals the final blow' to process of cell death then they can focus their attention on creating medications that inhibits this single protein

    I'd imagine it to be ground breaking if that's the case. Ifthey can use the MIF inhibitor during the early the stages of neurodegenerative diseases, it can possibly prevent the condition from worsening. Not to say it'll be ineffective in the later stages, but if it works to prevent further damage then its still beneficial in maintaining function. It'd be most ideal to use earlier

    Some researchers are aiming for eye transplants within the next decade.

    Sharingan, here I come!

    That's actually interesting. The normal ACL procedure has some chronic side effects mainly involving pain and stiffness. It'll be a long term problem for most people even after the procedure. If this removes the lingering pain and stiffness from post-op then this is huge especially for athletes who tend to injure their ACL a lot more
