Jan 11 2019 SP Scientific announces the launch of LyoS™ 2.0 – a line-of-sight enabled lyophilizer control system able to control platforms from development to production units, making cycle transfer and scale-up that much simpler. Building upon over 50 years of freeze-drying experience, the LyoS 2.0 control system delivers unmatched process control for all stages […]Continue Reading ...
Using the CRISPR gene editing tool, Nikolay Kandul, Omar Akbari and their colleagues at UC San Diego and UC Berkeley devised a method of altering key genes that control insect sex determination and fertility. A description of the new “precision-guided sterile insect technique,” or pgSIT, is published Jan. 8 in the journal Nature Communications. When […]Continue Reading ...
Home News Professional Impact of Fructose Varies With Energy Control, Food Source MONDAY, Dec. 3, 2018 — Energy control and food source appear to mediate the effect of fructose-containing sugars on glycemic control, according to a review published online Nov. 21 in The BMJ. Vivian L. Choo, from St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, and colleagues […]Continue Reading ...
Thanks to an innovative mosquito control approach developed at Rutgers University-New Brunswick, residents in several Maryland neighborhoods reduced populations of invasive Asian tiger mosquitoes by an impressive 76 percent, on average. The Rutgers-led project, called Citizen Action through Science (Citizen AcTS), mobilizes neighbors guided by scientists to address local problems, according to a study in […]Continue Reading ...
The highest priority in a national cancer control plan must be expansion of tobacco control–the intervention with the largest potential health benefits–according to a new American Cancer Society report, the second in a series of articles that together inform priorities for a comprehensive cancer control plan. The report, appearing in CA: A Cancer Journal for […]Continue Reading ...
A new study has shown that diabetes patients with the poorest control of their blood sugars face the highest risks of hospitalization and death due to infections. The study, conducted by researchers at St George’s, University of London, analyzed the electronic GP and hospital records of more than 85,000 English adults aged 40 to 89 […]Continue Reading ...
Understanding how memories form and are retrieved has applications to psychiatric, neurological and neurodegenerative disorders, and may be helpful to attenuate maladaptive memories in psychiatric disorders. Two broad findings have been seen in memory reconsolidation, which is the retrieval and strengthening of a recent memory. The first broad finding is that, during memory reconsolidation, changes […]Continue Reading ...
Taking vacations could prolong life. That’s the finding of a 40-year study presented today at ESC Congress and accepted for publication in The Journal of Nutrition, Health & Aging. “Don’t think having an otherwise healthy lifestyle will compensate for working too hard and not taking holidays,” said Professor Timo Strandberg, of the University of Helsinki, […]Continue Reading ...
University of Arizona biomedical engineering professor Philipp Gutruf is first author on the paper Fully implantable, optoelectronic systems for battery-free, multimodal operation in neuroscience research, published in Nature Electronics. Optogenetics is a biological technique that uses light to turn specific neuron groups in the brain on or off. For example, researchers might use optogenetic stimulation […]Continue Reading ...
THURSDAY, Nov. 1, 2018 — Intensive blood pressure (BP) control and fenofibrate use in patients with type 2 diabetes who are at high risk for cardiovascular disease may increase the risk for adverse kidney events, according to a study published in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology to coincide with its presentation […]Continue Reading ...
Researchers have demonstrated an integrated technique for monitoring specific biomolecules – such as growth factors – that could indicate the health of living cell cultures produced for the burgeoning field of cell-based therapeutics. Using microfluidic technology to advance the preparation of samples from the chemically complex bioreactor environment, the researchers have harnessed electrospray ionization mass […]Continue Reading ...
A study from the Nationwide Children’s Hospital analyzed environmental exposures, like pet and secondhand smoke, to determine if they have a role in asthma control among children whose asthma is managed per NAEPP (EPR-3) guidelines. Researchers found that once asthma guidelines are followed, environmental exposures to pets or secondhand smoke were not significant factors in […]Continue Reading ...
Healthcare-associated infections can be reduced by up to 55 percent by systematically implementing evidence-based infection prevention and control strategies, according to a review of 144 studies published today in Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology, the journal of the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA). The study suggests that there is considerable room for improvement […]Continue Reading ...

August 22, 2018 Researchers at Ruhr-Universität Bochum have analyzed why certain people tend to put tasks off rather than tackling them directly. Using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), they identified two brain areas whose volume and functional connectivity are linked to an individual’s ability to control their actions. The research team headed by Caroline Schlüter, Dr. […]Continue Reading ...
