One in four patients treated with the widely used anti-cancer drug cisplatin develop chronic kidney disease. To better understand how the treatment leads to kidney damage, and possibly prevent it, a team of researchers developed a new 3D-imaging technique to peer deep into these vital organs.
Nanoengineers used an innovative 3D printing technology they developed to manufacture multipurpose fish-shaped microrobots -- called microfish -- that swim around efficiently in liquids, are chemically powered by hydrogen peroxide and magnetically controlled.
A pediatricians' group is recommending that infants at high risk of peanut allergies be given foods containing peanuts before they turn 1.
Teen girls who exercise as little as an hour a week for three months may reduce, to a surprising degree, risk of death from many diseases in adulthood, according to a Vanderbilt University study.

Terra Universal introduces a new addition to their special BioSafe product line – a hinged, easy-clean safety glasses holder. The container is designed for comfortable access to stored items, while maintaining stringent cleanliness standards and simplifying sanitation processes.
Calprotectin fends off microbial invaders by limiting access to iron, an important nutrient.
Cancer researchers dream of the day they can force tumor cells to morph back to the normal cells they once were. Now, researchers have discovered a way to potentially reprogram cancer cells back to normalcy.
A prestigious laboratory in Texas is under federal investigation after auditors issued a preliminary report saying it did not do enough to prevent the suffering of primates who were infected with a deadly virus for a study of the disease.
New software developed by bioengineers could speed up the diagnosis of breast cancer with 90 percent accuracy and without the need for a specialist, according to recent research.
Health researchers say there are now nearly 47 million people living with dementia globally, up from 35 million in 2009. They warned that without a medical breakthrough, numbers will likely double every 20 years.
Scientists are hailing an Australian institute’s unusual raft of initiatives aimed at wiping out science gender gaps.
These companies are having an interesting month so far.
The unique Krystal 2000 microplate range from Porvair Sciences has been optimized for luminescence and fluorescence assays. A patented manufacturing process, using a ‘two-shot’ mould, provides clear, individual wells in an opaque matrix.
