New lab studies are helping researchers to better understand how so called ‘forever chemicals’ behave in soil and water, which can help in understanding how these contaminants spread.
Supreme court nominee Amy Coney Barrett refused to say whether she accepts the science of climate change, under questioning from Kamala Harris, saying she lacked the expertise to know for sure and calling it a topic too controversial to get…
COVID-19 lockdowns averted tens of thousands of premature deaths related to air pollution, study finds
Scientists have found that particulate matter concentrations in China dropped by an unprecedented 29.7 percent, and by 17.1 percent in parts of Europe, during lockdowns that took place between Feb. 1 and March 31 in China and Feb. 21 to May 17 in Europe.
Researchers found that a drug that activates the body’s natural defenses by behaving like a virus may also make certain stealthy melanoma tumors visible to the immune system, allowing them to be better targeted by immunotherapy.
Rapid detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, in about 30 seconds following the test, has had successful preliminary results. The test uses a nanotube-based electrochemical biosensor, a similar technology used for detecting tuberculosis and colorectal cancer as well as detection of biomarkers for food safety.
Researchers have found out how cells can recover their development and longevity after damage by UV. The discovery may enable new therapies against premature aging.
Combining genetic and experimental data into models about the influenza virus can help predict more accurately which strains will be most common during the next winter, says a study published recently in eLife.
Virtual reality software which allows researchers to ‘walk’ inside and analyze individual cells could be used to understand fundamental problems in biology and develop new treatments for disease.
A research team hsd discovered that certain exosomes can effectively control Epstein-Barr virus-associated tumors and induce T-cell anti-tumor immunity. The novel findings provide insights into new therapeutic approach for Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-associated tumors.
Last quarter moon comes on October 10. That morning, the moon will be in front of Gemini the Twins. The next morning – October 11 – the moon will be in front of Cancer the Crab.
