High-dose vitamin C injections shown to annihilate cancer - A team of researchers from the University of Kansas reportedly tested the effects of vitamin C given in high doses intravenously on a group of human subjects and found that it effectively eradicates cancer cells while leaving healthy cells intact.
A Simple Blast of Laser Could Help Your Teeth Grow Back
5/28/14 - A Simple Blast of Laser Could Help Your Teeth Grow Back | Scientists have now found a way to regenerate dentin, the hard stuff in the middle of the tooth, right in the mouth. All it takes is a blast of laser. In a study published today in Science Translational Medicine, a Harvard-led team lays out how a low-power laser can trigger stem cells in the tooth to form dentin. Currently, damaged dentin is replaced with synthetic material, like when you get a filling or a root canal.

Researchers use light to coax stem cells to repair teeth | A Harvard-led team is the first to demonstrate the ability to use low-power light to trigger stem cells inside the body to regenerate tissue. The researchers used high-resolution x-ray imaging and microscopy techniques to assess the formation of reparative (tertiary) dentin 12 weeks after the low power laser treatment. In the microscopy images shown here, the yellow hashtags (#) sit atop the newly-formed tertiary dentin.
A 10th of children have a "monkey-like" immune system that stops them developing Aids, a study suggests. The study, in Science Translational Medicine, found the children's immune systems were "keeping calm", which prevented them being wiped out. An untreated HIV infection will kill 60% of children within two and a half years, but the equivalent infection in monkeys is not fatal.
