The ultimate goal is to be able to inject bacterial into the patient's body and then use ultrasound machines to hit the engineered bacteria with sound waves to generate images that reveal the locations of the microbes. The pictures would let doctors know if the treatments made it to the right place in the body and were working properly.

A major international collaboration led by Melbourne researchers has discovered that the world's most widespread malaria parasite infects humans by hijacking a protein the body cannot live without. The researchers were then able to successfully develop antibodies that disabled the parasite from carrying out this activity.
A new study was led by a Rutgers University-Camden researcher. According to the study, black adolescents express depressive symptoms differently than people from other age and racial groups, requiring that clinicians take this into account when developing treatment plans.
The UK researchers have revealed the relationship between poor oral health and older adults' risks for becoming frail. Oral health issues like tooth loss and gum disease are linked to increased risks of frailty. The findings published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.
According to the researchers, about 40% of patients with low-risk bladder cancer can be put into a "very-low-risk" category characterized by younger patient age, smaller tumors, and a lower recurrence rate than patients with larger tumors. The findings are published in the BJU International (formerly the British Journal of Urology).
New research showed the association between high intake of marine ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (ω-3 PUFAs) and survival of patients with colorectal cancer (CRC). Increasing consumption of marine ω-3 PUFAs after diagnosis may confer additional benefits to patients with CRC.
A new research and development for bone growth factor therapy, this involves the discovery of bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs). Some organs, like the brain and spinal cord, are protected inside bone structures—the skull and vertebrae, respectively. Other organs, such as the muscles, are attached to the skeleton. The discovery of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in 1991, coincident with the first isolation of human embryonic stem cells, also stimulated significant interest.
The study puts a spotlight on the under-reporting of osteoporotic vertebral fractures, particularly by radiologists who are not specialized in musculoskeletal imaging. The under-reporting is a missed opportunity for diagnosing and treating osteoporosis – and thereby reducing the risk of subsequent hip fractures.
In a new research published in Chemistry: A European Journal, scientists have designed a new dye, JULBD6, which could be used to observe the electrical activity of neurons in the brain and could lead to finding a new and more efficient way of treating neurological diseases.
Millions of Americans hear ringing in their ears — a condition called tinnitus — but a new study, published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, shows an experimental device could help quiet the phantom sounds by targeting unruly nerve activity in the brain.
A New research on ISS, by evaluating the performance of the MinION in a space environment, we tested it aboard the International Space Station (ISS). Durations for Mars missions are likely to range from 1.5 to 3 years, with 12 to 24 months of that time spent in transit between the planets, based on present propulsion technologies and planetary orbital dynamics. In response to spaceflight, the human immune response becomes dysregulated, microbial pathogenicity can rise during spaceflight.
