Porvair Sciences reports on a highly effective protocol, using its Plant Genomics microplate, for preparing cannabis samples for analysis of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). With increasing legalization of cannabis for medicinal and research purposes, demand for accurate and high throughput analysis of its active ingredients has dramatically risen. Cannabis plant material contains several cannabinoids […]Continue Reading ...
Credit: CC0 Public Domain A Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH)-led research team has demonstrated, for the first time, how solid stress—the physical forces exerted by the solid components of a tumor—impacts the tissue surrounding brain tumors and contributes to resulting neurological dysfunction and neuronal cell death. In their report published in Nature Biomedical Engineering, the investigators […]Continue Reading ...

A survey of 20 disadvantaged neighborhoods across the North West (UK) has revealed the social influences on why people attend their local Accident & Emergency department. Researchers from the University of Liverpool, supported by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), conducted a household health survey including over 3,500 face-to-face interviews with households randomly selected […]Continue Reading ...
A Rutgers study has found that a specific gene in cancerous prostate tumors indicates when patients are at high-risk for the cancer to spread, suggesting that targeting this gene can help patients live longer. The study, which was published in the journal Nature Communications, identified the NSD2 gene through a computer algorithm developed to determine […]Continue Reading ...
A 3D printed, two-millimeter implant (slightly larger than the thickness of a penny) used as scaffolding to repair spinal cord injuries in rats. The dots surrounding the H-shaped core are hollow portals through which implanted neural stem cells can extend axons into host tissues.

Poor cardiorespiratory fitness could increase your risk of a future heart attack, even if you have no symptoms of a lifestyle illness today, a new study has found. “We found a strong link between higher fitness levels and a lower risk of heart attack and angina pectoris over the nine years following the measurements that […]Continue Reading ...
January 18, 2019 Audience: Consumer, Health Professional, Pharmacy Prinston Pharmaceutical Inc., dba Solco Healthcare LLC., has initiated a voluntary recall of one (1) lot of Irbesartan and seven (7) lots of Irbesartan HCTZ Tablets to the consumer level due to the detection of trace amount of an unexpected impurity found in an active pharmaceutical ingredient […]Continue Reading ...
Vaccines to stop the world’s next epidemic could be developed in record time under a $14.7 million partnership using technology developed at The University of Queensland. The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) has funded a research consortium to develop a rapid response pipeline to develop and test new vaccines in as little as 16 […]Continue Reading ...
A team of Canadian and U.S. brain researchers have published results from a multi-year hockey concussion study, which tracked the brain function of young Junior A male ice hockey players using a new brainwave monitoring method called “brain vital signs.” The peer-reviewed study is published online, and will be featured as an “Editor’s Choice” in […]Continue Reading ...
A team of researchers, affiliated with UNIST has recently introduced a novel targeted drug delivery system that can improve the pharmacological and therapeutic properties of conventional cancer treatments. The new technology has dramatically enhanced safety and efficiency through the use of the supramolecularly built protein corona shield as a targeting agent through regulating the interfaces […]Continue Reading ...
WEDNESDAY, Jan. 16, 2019 — The rates of complications after invasive diagnostic procedures for lung abnormalities are higher in the community setting than in clinical trials, according to a study published online Jan. 14 in JAMA Internal Medicine. Jinhai Huo, Ph.D., M.D., from the University of Florida in Gainesville, and colleagues conducted a retrospective cohort […]Continue Reading ...
