  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

A way to turn an entire body transparent has been developed by scientists studying rodents.

Reporting in the journal Cell, they describe a technique that keeps tissues intact but allows key body parts and connections to be seen.

They say it could help visualise how separate organs interact and pave the way for a new generation of treatments.

Thats pretty weird :unsure2:

Only thing i think of is about how much pain do those rodents have to endure before they die...

To me it's only cruel and I seriously doubt it will pave to anything new.
Unfortunately I'm not a researcher, so maybe I'm wrong. But it's cruel for sure.

That's a cool idea. To actually be able to SEE the changes in cells between healthy and diseased states, or where viruses hide in tissue. I can see it eventually being really beneficial.

I would like to point this out though:


The research has been carried out on euthansed rats and human tissue samples taken during operations but not yet in living organisms.

A mouse body has been transformed into a pale, gooey-lookin ag "see-through" version of its former self, by researchers wielding a new technique they say could be used to better understand processes in the body.
The technique — which is performed on mice, postmortem, can reveal all of an animal's organs, from its brain to its kidneys, while keeping them intact — could lead to a better understanding of how the brain and body interact, as well as new ways to treat conditions such as chronic pain and autism, according to a study published today (July 31) in the journal Cell.
