Modeling remodelingPatients with valvular heart disease such as aortic stenosis (narrowing of the aortic valve in the heart) receive artificial or bioprosthetic valve replacements, but these have limited longevity and cannot grow with younger patients. Emmert et al. used computational modeling to design tissue-engineered heart valves from polymer scaffolds

Stem cell transplants in pigs with spinal cord injuryNeural precursor cells (NPCs) hold promise for treating spinal cord injury (SCI). Testing viability and engraftment properties of NPC transplants in large-animal models is necessary for understanding the clinical potential of this approach. In a new study, Strnadel et al. transplanted

Humidity—Harbinger of health?Low environmental humidity can aggravate symptoms of atopic dermatitis (AD), an inflammatory skin disease. Seltmann et al. investigated the link between humidity and epidermal barrier function. Using a mouse model that exhibits AD-like symptoms, they found that high humidity reduced epidermal thickness and skin inflammation. Chloride channel

RSV gives innate immunity the runaroundAsthma can be exacerbated by pathogens such as respiratory syncytial virus (RSV); prostaglandin D2 (PGD2) is also important in asthma and is being investigated as a therapeutic target. Werder et al. used multiple models to examine how RSV infection may perturb immune responses and

Predicting progression in a T cell lymphomaMycosis fungoides (MF) is an often indolent cutaneous T cell lymphoma identifiable by the T cell receptor gene TCRB in skin biopsies. de Masson et al. performed high-throughput sequencing of MF skin lesions to determine whether the frequency of the most abundant TCRB
