Belgium confirmed that they have a case of African swine fever. This confirms that the infection has spread to the west of the EU.For several weeks now it has been a concern that African swine fever may affect the pigs in Western Europe. This would not mean that there could be import-bans on pigs and pig produces from the non-EU markets.

Infiltration anesthesia (IA) is the method to anesthetize maxillary teeth successfully. In contrast, intraligamentary anesthesia (ILA) has been used as supplementary anesthesia during tooth extraction, particularly when regional block anesthesia has failed. In this study, we compare the efficacy of and patient satisfaction with ILA vs IA when extracting maxillary first molar teeth.
Researchers investigated secondary metabolites from cultures of Penicillium erubescens KUFA 0220, which was isolated from the marine sponge Neopetrosia sp., collected from the coral reef at Samaesan Island, Chonburi province, in the Gulf of Thailand.
There are no approved medications to treat either cocaine addiction or overdose. Frequent users tend to become less and less sensitive to the drug, leading to stronger or more frequent doses. The typical result is an addiction. Exposure to the drug, or to drug-associated cues, even after long periods of abstention, often leads to relapse
A £3 million interdisciplinary research project is to address the growing threat of drug-resistant infections in India. The project will develop innovative diagnostics to curb antimicrobial resistance (AMR), one of the biggest threats to global public health.
Biochemists have achieved a major goal in biology: seeing at near atomic detail the smallest protein ever visualized by the technique whose development won the 2017 Nobel Prize in chemistry. Until now, this method has not worked with the small proteins inside cells.
UCLA biochemists have achieved a first in biology: viewing at the near-atomic detail the smallest protein ever seen by the technique whose development won its creators the 2017 Nobel Prize in chemistry.
That technique, called cryo-electron microscopy, enables scientists to see large biomolecules, such as viruses, in extraordinary detail. The research is published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
New research suggests that radiotherapy is likely to play a larger role in the multi-modal treatment of malignant pleural mesothelioma in the future, supporting and enhancing treatments such as surgery and immunotherapy.
A new computer program can analyze images of patients' lung tumors, specify cancer types, and even identify altered genes driving abnormal cell growth, a new study shows.
There are several types of cancer that start to provide symptoms from a very early stage. While breast cancer patients have witnessed a lump on their breast area, people suffered from skin cancer have seen unusual moles or any unusual spot that changes color on their bodies. But, symptoms of head and neck cancers usually cannot be seen from outside.
The adaptive immune system has evolved to mount different types of responses that are matched to the type of invading pathogen. For CD4+ T cells, this is predicated on the multipotentiality of clonally restricted naïve T cells.
An LSTM led partnership has been awarded nearly £1.5 million from the Medical Research Council (MRC) for the pre-clinical development of a candidate drug to treat onchocerciasis and lymphatic filariasis, by targeting the bacterial symbiont Wolbachia.
