The race is on between research and the virus

Since August last year the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has been facing its 10th Ebola virus disease outbreak. As of early March this year, 907 cases and 569 deaths have been reported.

Are viruses the best weapon for fighting superbugs?

Are viruses the best weapon for fighting superbugs?

Antibiotics won the battle against resistant bacteria, but they may not win the war. You probably know that antibiotic-resistant bacteria, also known as superbugs, have hampered physicians’ ability to treat infections.

Why We Have To Wait For Scientific News?

Peer-reviewed and published. Maggie Villiger, CC BY-ND Purposes of a press embargoExtra, extra! The embargo’s lifted, read all about it. Rumors were flying through the blogosphere this winter: physicists at the Advanced Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) may finally have directly detected gravitational waves, ripples in the fabric of space-time predicted by Einstein 100 years ago in his general theory of relativity. Gravitational waves were predicted to be produced by cataclysmic...

How To Avoid Bogus Health Information On The Web

 How To Avoid Bogus Health Information On The Web

Health is one of the biggest topics searched for on the web, yet despite its importance a large portion of this information is inaccurate, anecdotal or biased.

Real-time data from patients could shape a brave new world in health

There is great enthusiasm for using “big data” to enable better biomedical research across the globe. But big data isn’t just about collating lots of old and new records. Including ongoing real-time data from patients can be part of a brave new world in health research.

Technique Visualizes Brain Tumors During Surgery

Recognizing the difference between tumors and normal brain tissue during surgery is a major challenge. Removing healthy tissue can cause neurologic problems, but leaving tumor tissue behind can allow the cancer to spread again.

Lab-Grown Kidneys Function in Rats

Scientists have created artificial kidneys that can filter blood and produce urine when transplanted into rats. With further development, this approach could help the many patients who await organ transplants because their own kidneys no longer work.

Biofilm Streamers Clog Medical Devices

Biofilm Streamers Clog Medical Devices

Bacterial communities called biofilms can quickly clog medical devices such as stents and catheters by forming 3-dimensional streamers that block flow. The finding will inform future approaches to prevent these deadly clogs....

Stem Cells Discovered in Deadly Parasitic Flatworms

The flatworms that cause the tropical disease schistosomiasis can survive inside infected people for decades. The discovery of the stem cells that may be responsible could now lay the groundwork for new strategies to treat the disease....

Liver Stem Cells Discovered in Mice

Scientists successfully identified and grew a renewable population of liver stem cells for the first time, a new study reported. The findings could eventually lead to approaches that help rejuvenate damaged livers in people....

Boosting Cell Defenses

Boosting Cell DefensesScientists designed a compound that induces a cell "housekeeping" process that may help fight cancer, infection, neurodegenerative disease and aging. The compound successfully protected laboratory mice from deadly infections....

Study Finds Association Between Biological Marker and Susceptibility to the Common Cold

Woman sneezing

Preliminary study results suggest that a biomarker may be associated with the ability of young and middle-aged people to fight off a cold caused by a particular rhinovirus. The biological marker identified in the study was the length of telomeres—cap-like protein complexes at the ends of chromosomes—which shorten with age.

Sensing Positive Touch

Scientists have identified a rare type of neuron in mice that's responsible for detecting the pleasant stroking of skin. The finding opens the door to exploring the molecules and neural pathways that recognize a positive touch....
