Use of potentially risky, non-FDA approved hormone therapies may soon be as common as use of FDA-approved hormone therapies, according to a study by University of Virginia gynecology researcher JoAnn Pinkerton.
Charles Darwin’s kids doodled all over several pages of - and notes for - the original manuscript of his historic 1859 book, which launched the field of evolutionary biology: “On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.”
Bioscience Technology caught up with Susan Harkema Ph.D., professor and rehabilitation research director of the University of Louisville’s Kentucky Spinal Cord Injury Research Center, to discuss her research and new funding awarded by Wings for Life Spinal Cord Research Foundation for epidural stimulation.
The project will focus on finding cures for aging-related diseases like cataracts and atherosclerosis.
Designer babies? It’s far from a whimsy, and now a new technology that would make it possible to alter human DNA at the germline (meaning changing traits that can be inherited) has scientists calling for caution and a freeze.
It’s not all in your head. Brain injuries from sports are a steady unease for athletes.
A Harvard University and Waterloo University team has found that a common breast cancer chemotherapy (chemo) can create stem-like cancer cells out of more differentiated tumor cells.
Could a changing climate and changing environments have an impact on the spread of infectious diseases? At least one zoologist thinks so.
Precision Blue real-time PCR dye from Bio-Rad Laboratories makes it easier for researchers to set up real-time PCR (qPCR) experiments.
The FlashTaq Hot-Start Taq DNA Polymerase from Empirical Bioscience is a chemically-modified Taq polymerase designed to reduce non-specific amplification in PCR.
The inspiration for this creation came from the T-1000, the lethal and liquid robot from the movie Terminator 2.
Apple's ResearchKit needs to make an impact beyond the initial launch period.
Many recent meta-studies find hormone replacement therapy lengthens life after all. This may be leading to a comeback for the once hugely popular menopause treatment.
The Botswana-UPenn Partnership (BUP) is collaborating with Microsoft, the Botswana Innovation Hub, and other global partners to launch the first telemedicine service in Africa using TV white spaces to bring internet connectivity to hospitals and clinics across rural areas of Botswana.
For the first time in the world, researchers at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) were able to enroll patients at other hospitals into an acute stroke clinical trial.
Two groups have recently made strides with amyloid beta (aβ), the supposed main villain in Alzheimer’s disease. But while one group is tackling Alzheimer’s by reducing aβ, the other is tackling multiple sclerosis (MS) by using aβ.
Finding: Protein complex isn't always "on."
Queensland scientists have found that non-invasive ultrasound technology can be used to treat Alzheimer’s disease and restore memory.
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.
Salk scientists re-engineered the bacterial defense system CRISPR to recognize HIV inside human cells and destroy the virus, offering a potential new therapy.
Apple teamed up with a handful of universities to create these medical research applications.
Getting a new drug to market is difficult, but the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) offers a number of ways to help the process along for promising drugs that have potential against serious diseases. One of these options is designation as a breakthrough therapy. This year a number of these therapies are targeted at fighting cancer.
