An American healthcare worker who contracted Ebola while volunteering in a Sierra Leone treatment unit arrived safely at the National Institutes of Health's hospital in Maryland, officials announced early Friday.
Researchers at MIT have developed a method to stimulate brain tissue using external magnetic fields and injected magnetic nanoparticles — a technique allowing direct stimulation of neurons, which could be an effective treatment for a variety of neurological diseases, without the need for implants or external connections.
UCLA researchers have provided the first evidence that a simple blood test could be developed to confirm the presence of beta amyloid proteins in the brain, which is a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease.
MIT study finds evidence that a new strain of H1N1 may carry dangerous mutations.
Can a tetanus shot help treat brain cancer? A small study hints that it might.
Phenomenex introduces the Kinetex C8 5-micron core-shell HPLC column. The used C8 phase delivers retention for the analysis of hydrophobic and “sticky” compounds. In combination with Kinetex Core-Shell Technology, this phase gives analysts a high-performance reversed phase alternative for HPLC methods.
Scientists show that proteins critical in day-night cycles also protect cells from mutations.
A new fingerprint ID device gives healthworkers access to accurate patient records.
Queensland scientists have found that non-invasive ultrasound technology can be used to treat Alzheimer’s disease and restore memory.
Google-backed genetic testing company 23andMe is launching its own drug development unit, betting that it can translate its database of customer DNA information into novel medicines.
Electric Ice Trays for Life Sciences from tecaLAB are an affordable option for easy bench top cooling. The compact Peltier design allows for maintenance free, constant cooling. Simply plug it in and cool to as low as 25C below ambient.
Basal cell carcinomas develop mutations in a protein on the Hedgehog pathway to evade a common drug therapy. Targeting another portion of the pathway may be an effective alternative treatment.
A new study reveals an important connection between dozens of genes that may contribute to autism, a major step toward understanding how brain development goes awry in some individuals with the disorder.
Findings could help shed light on Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, ALS and other diseases.
