Researchers at Stanford University, Palo Alto, California, have created a noninvasive technology that detects when nerve cells are based on changes in shape. The method could be used to observe nerve activity in light-accessible parts of the body, such as the eye, which would allow physicians to quantitatively monitor visual function at the cellular level.The work was funded by the National Eye Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health.
At the 2018 American Society of Cell Biology Meeting (ASCB), Bruker today announced the launch of the new Luxendo InVi SPIM AIM next-generation lattice light-sheet microscope , which features an advanced illumination module (AIM) for lowest phototoxicity light-sheet fluorescence microscopy of live samples.
In billions of tiny capsules.An international team has developed a novel pharmaceutical formulation to administer Triclabendazole an anti-parasitic drug used to treat a type of flatworm infection
Scientists at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center have created and tested a decision tool that appears to be the most accurate, non-invasive method yet developed to predict asthma in young children.
Researchers at Stanley Manne Children's Research Institute at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, and colleagues, used a blood test and microarray technology to identify distinct molecular signatures in children with cystic fibrosis. These patterns of gene expression could help predict disease severity and treatment response, and lead to therapies tailored to each patient's precise biology. Findings were published in Physiological Genomics.
According to some estimates, up to one in three people around the world may experience severe anxiety in their lifetime. In a study described today in Cell Reports , researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science have revealed a previously unknown mechanism underlying anxiety. Targeting this biochemical pathway may help develop new therapies for alleviating the symptoms of anxiety disorders.
Researchers at Melbourne are embarking upon a worldwide study to see if there is a risk of relapse of cancers among persons who have undergone surgeries. The team hypothesizes that while undergoing a surgery using gas anesthetics, those with cancer are at a greater risk of a cancer relapse.
New research from Seattle Children's Research Institute and UW Medicine's Sports Health and Safety Institute found concussion rates between football players ages 5-14 were higher than previously reported, with five out of every 100 youth, or 5%, sustaining a football-related concussion each season.
Nepal has made remarkable achievements in improving healthcare access to its citizens. Nepali Minister of Health and Population Upendra Yadav said the country made a remarkable progress in achieving its goals related to child and maternal health under the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
The Indian pharma industry has been acclaimed for its rapid growth in the decades and is expected to reach the US $ 100 billion by 2025. The industry clearly owes its success to its bold, ambitious approach, history of innovation and ability to constantly adapt to the global market.
An Osaka University-led research team has developed a system for simply and inhuman producing norovirus. By coaxing human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to develop into the type of cell that usually leads to the intestine, how can they be used for producing the virus, how can it interact with human cells, and investigating potential vaccines?
