  • Experts assess IVF treatments in study
    Babies conceived naturally showed better overall outcomes compared with those conceived through in vitro fertilization, a study presented at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine meeting showed. However, researchers said babies born by frozen-embryo IVF were slightly less likely than those born by fresh embryo to suffer premature birth and low birth weight.

  • Researcher: Mussels' stickiness could have medical uses
    Adhesives secreted by mussels could lead to a bioadhesive allowing prenatal surgeons to fix birth defects with a lower risk of causing premature labor, said biologist Herbert Waite of the University of California, Santa Barbara. Speaking at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Waite said mussels' holdfasts contain high amounts of dihydroxyphenylalanine. This allows proteins to solidify quickly, allowing them to cut through a layer of water and bond with a surface. ScienceMag.org/Science Now blog (2/16) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
