An eye implant engineered from proteins in pigskin restored sight in 14 blind people


Twenty people with diseased or damaged corneas had significant improvements in their vision after they received implants engineered out of protein from pigskin.

The patients, in Iran and India, all suffered from keratoconus, a condition in which the protective outer layer of the eye progressively thins and bulges outward. Fourteen of the patients were blind before they received the implant, but two years after the procedure, they had regained some or all of their vision. Three had perfect vision after the surgery.

Australia to target vehicle emissions to boost electric car supply


SYDNEY, Aug 19 (Reuters) - Australia's government said on Friday it plans to introduce new regulations targeting vehicle carbon emissions to boost the uptake of electric cars, as it looks to catch up with other developed economies.

Just 2% of cars sold in Australia are electric compared with 15% in Britain and 17% in Europe, and the country risked becoming a dumping ground for vehicles that can't be sold elsewhere, Climate Change and Energy Minister Chris Bowen said.
