A MILabs dual-energy, ultra-high resolution U-CT system has been installed at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem Israel (HUJI). Under the direction of Professor Galia Blum, this institute has established an internationally renowned research program, focused on drug design, delivery, and therapy.

A one-year, $100,000 grant awarded to Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey resident researcher Daniel Herranz Benito, Ph.D., will support exploration into an aggressive blood cancer that impacts both children and adults T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL).
The world's rising obesity epidemic is associated with a broad spectrum of ailments including atherosclerosis and non-alcoholic fatty liver (NAFL) disease. Each condition can progress from small fatty deposits to localized tissue inflammation that is potentially dangerous.
Beating cancer is a race against time. Developing radiation therapy plans individualized maps that help doctors determine where to blast tumors can take days. Now, engineering researcher Aaron Babier has developed automation software that aims to cut the time down to mere hours.
When someone is admitted to the hospital, doctors often have to treat them with antibiotics while awaiting the results of time-consuming tests, with even the most advanced microbiology culture taking several days to get results.
While blood and marrow transplants can save the life of a pediatric cancer patient, research out of the University of Alabama at Birmingham found that those patients may be at an increased risk of premature death even years or decades after the procedure as compared with the general population.
Nearly a third of older Americans filled a prescription for an opioid during the past 2 years, and many of them did not receive sufficient counseling on the risks of taking opioids, how to reduce their use, when to switch to a nonopioid pain reliever, or what to do with leftover pills, according to a new poll.
A study evaluates the evolutionary history and present-day biology of the human asscheek. It’s a story that starts 350 million years ago, with massive primordial tails, and winding its way through the millennia ends on those time-whittled marvels of ergonomic flesh-and-muscle you’re probably sitting on right now.
The answer is both, probably. But while whole careers have been spent tracing the origins of human self-awareness, the lowly butt cheek has to this point not warranted even a short monograph. These fleshy, sometimes hairy, alternately hilarious, erotic and mundanely functional appendages.
A study determines the limitations of Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) has found its way into cell biology since 1940. When compared with light microscopes, TEM can achieve a very high resolution due to the shorter wavelength of the electron beam it uses. This feature enables TEM to visualize the structure of the cells such as membrane systems, cilia, organelles and its complexity. Regardless of the advantages, TEM has its own limitations.
The study estimate that our loved one is diagnosed with cancer, it is normal to be overwhelmed by thoughts of prognosis, treatments, and potential complications. Patients wonder how their lives are going to change and whether their quality of life will ever return to normal.
Quality Of Life
Pain and other symptoms, sometimes from the disease and sometimes from the treatments, can have a negative impact on one's ability to maintain a satisfactory quality of life. Dealing with the diagnosis and learning how to live with cancer requires a team effort and support from a number of professionals.
The researcher suggests that breathing toxic dust, even tiny amounts could pose a health peril to future astronauts traveling to airless planets. Dust could pose a health hazard if astronauts start spending extended periods of time on the Moon, Mars or other airless planets.
They found that up to 90% of human lung cells and mouse brain cells died when exposed to simulated lunar dust particles. The study was published recently in the journal GeoHealth.
According to a study, the researcher examines the effect of ICU telemedicine on transfers is not well studied. This study tests the hypothesis that ICU telemedicine decreases ICU patient interhospital transfers.
Telemedicine is associated with a decrease in inter-hospital intensive care unit (ICU) transfers. The study was published in the journal Chest.
