Gene therapy has rid three adult patients of acute leukemia. The patients have been cancer-free for 5 months to 2 years, according to a study published last week (March 20) in Science Translational Medicine. Two other patients received the therapy, but one died for reasons believed to be unrelated, and the second died after relapsing.

Scientists have used nanotechnology materials to repair vital tissues damaged in heart attacks, suggesting a new way to treat heart failure in people. The experiments, done in rats and pigs, led to the growth of fresh blood vessels and improved heart function without harmful side effects, the scientists said Wednesday in the journal Science Translational Medicine.
