Cell-free plasma mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) levels are associated with endothelial dysfunction and differential outcomes in critical illness. A substantial alteration in metabolic homeostasis is commonly observed in severe critical illness. We hypothesized that metabolic profiles significantly differ between critically ill patients relative to their level of plasma mtDNA. Differential metabolic profiles during critical illness are associated with cell-free plasma ND1 mtDNA levels that are indicative... Read More | Comment

Few techniques in the history of modern science have made as large an impact in as short a time as CRISPR-Cas9. Only a few years after the technique was first described, its inventors are predicted to be on the shortlist for winning the Nobel Prize. CRISPR is so popular, Jennifer Lopez is planning a TV show about it. What makes CRISPR so revolutionary, and what... Read More | Comment
