JCU scientists develop the first 'pharmalogical' tourniquet
Internal blood loss is a major cause of death following traumatic injury. JCU scientists have developed a pharmacological treatment to reduce abdominal bleeding by up to 60%. The new fluid therapy has wide applications for the military in combat zones, and treating civilians, especially in remote areas. The project has just received an additional grant of more than $500,000 from US Special Operations Command to develop the treatment.

Antibiotics may have lasting impact on the immune system of children
Scientists want to know whether taking antibiotics early in life can disrupt your immune system function lifelong. Regardless of our age, antibiotics at least temporarily wipe out many of the good gut bacteria, or microbiota, that help us digest and use food and eliminate waste. That may be particularly problematic for children because, up to about age 3, this useful group of bacteria also is helping educate their immune system about what to ignore and what to attack.

Hastings to address profound questions about human gene editing
The Hastings Center has launched an international project that focuses on the social and ethical implications of using powerful gene editing methods on human germline cells (embryos, sperm, and eggs). Such methods would create permanent changes passed on from one generation to the next. These technologies, especially CRISPR-Cas9, have raised unprecedented hopes for benefiting human health, with scientists around the world working intensively with gene editing to find novel ways to treat cancer and other gene-based diseases.

Researchers hunt for the causes and basis of wheat sensitivities
Up to five percent of all people who eat wheat products suffer from wheat sensitivities. These are immunological responses to wheat and related cereals such as spelt, rye, and barley, and include celiac disease, wheat allergy, and non-celiac-non allergy wheat sensitivity. Now doctors and biomedical and agricultural researchers at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz and the University of Hohenheim have joined forces to study these disorders, especially NCWS.
