Aerospace startup Space Tango describes itself as "a full-service solution to microgravity research and manufacturing. They design project architectures and experiments specifically for a microgravity, which is close to zero gravity setting. They want to see how that unique environment affects bacteria, insects, seeds, viruses, pharmaceuticals, materials and more. They learn in space will enable us to make life better on this planet.

Mobile health technology has the potential to transform the way we prevent and manage heart disease, but there are unanswered questions about how to optimize this technology and maintain engagement with patients, according to a review of randomized clinical trials published in the Canadian Journal of Cardiology.
Researchers have found Motion is crucial for proper functioning of a kinase enzyme. Not only must the kinase have all needed parts in place, the enzyme must move in the correct manner and at the correct speed to function properly in a cell. Focusing on ways to impede the enzyme's motion may be an avenue for developing new drugs to combat cancer and other diseases.
Fear of others thinking they are promiscuous, or that they are already infected with HIV, is a barrier to many women who might benefit from pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), a U.S. study suggests.
Marine-derived nucleosides, spongothymidine, and spongouridine, from the Caribbean sponge Cryptotethya crypta in the early 1950s, marine natural products have emerged as unique, renewable and yet under-investigated pools for the discovery of new drug.
The study evaluate the feasibility of the perioperative protocol and investigate whether volatile anesthesia provide cardioprotection in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Clinical trials have shown conflicting results regarding the use of volatile anesthesia before or after the ischemic insult in cardiac surgical patients and effect on myocardial injury.
This may be attributable to the failure of continuing volatile agents into the early postoperative period. They hypothesized that combined volatile-based anesthesia and postoperative sedation would decrease the extent of myocardial injury after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) when compared to intravenous, propofol-based approach.
Head injury is the leading cause of death and catastrophic injury among skiers and snowboarders and accounts for three to 15 percent of winter sports-related injuries. Helmet use is increasingly encouraged at ski resorts, however, there have been little data collected on the degree to which ski helmet use prevents traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other types of head injury (OTHI).
According to a study, researchers estimates that indulgence in delicious but unhealthful food may not necessarily reveal a character flaw. Rather, our ability to exercise self-control is linked to our neurobiology. The study was published in The Journal of Neuroscience.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday laid stress on his government's vision of "New India by 2022."
