Topic of the Month March: Crisis management and communication

Remain calm in the event of a crisis, determine the cause, go one step at a time and professionally summarize the information given to the media. This could be the plan of a hospital that has to deal with a crisis situation. Could be! Unfortunately the reality is often different. Many hospitals do not seem to prepare for possible crisis situations. But that can be changed. Read our Topic of the Month

Protein booster may lead to better DNA vaccines

06/03/2015 - Scientists have discovered a new way to manipulate how cells function, a finding that might help advance an experimental approach to improving public health: DNA vaccines, which could be more efficient, less expensive and easier to store than traditional vaccines. read more

Breakthrough discovery in cancer treatment

05/03/2015 - Michail Sitkovsky, an immunophysiology expert at Northeastern University, and his research colleagues have made a breakthrough discovery in cancer treatment. The new approach, some 30 years in the making, could dramatically increase the survival rate of patients with cancer, which kills some 8 million people each year. read more

Giant virus revealed in 3-D using X-ray laser

05/03/2015 - For the first time, researchers have produced a 3-D image revealing part of the inner structure of an intact, infectious virus, using a unique X-ray laser at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. The virus, called Mimivirus, is in a curious class of “giant viruses” discovered just over a decade ago. read more

Rhodopsin on track – Biological pigment aligns in double rows

04/03/2015 - Scientists from the caesar research center, an Institute of the Max Planck Society, have explained, with the help of electron microscopy, how the pigment rhodopsin is arranged in the rod cells of the retina. This question has long been subject of a heated scientific debate. read more

New nanodevice defeats drug resistance

03/03/2015 - Chemotherapy often shrinks tumors at first, but as cancer cells become resistant to drug treatment, tumors can grow back. A new nanodevice developed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers can help overcome that by first blocking the gene that confers drug resistance, then launching a new chemotherapy attack against the disarmed tumors. read more

3-D printing offers method to deliver medication

02/03/2015 - 3-D printing could become a powerful tool in customizing interventional radiology treatments to individual patient needs, with clinicians having the ability to construct devices to a specific size and shape. That's according to a study being presented at the Society of Interventional Radiology's Annual Scientific Meeting. read more

Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D may control brain serotonin

27/02/2015 - Although essential marine omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D have been shown to improve cognitive function and behavior in the context of certain brain disorders, the underlying mechanism has been unclear. In a new paper serotonin is explained as the missing link tying together why vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids might ameliorate the symptoms associated with a broad array of brain disorders. read more

Cutting-edge technology optimizes cancer therapy with nanomedicine drug combinations

26/02/2015 - UCLA bioengineers develop platform that offers personalized approach to cancer treatment. read more

Scientists grow leg muscle from cells in a dish

26/02/2015 - A team of researchers from Italy, Israel and the United Kingdom has succeeded in generating mature, functional skeletal muscles in mice using a new approach for tissue engineering. read more

Vitamin D deficiency linked more closely to diabetes than obesity

25/02/2015 - People who have low levels of vitamin D are more likely to have diabetes, regardless of how much they weigh, according to a new study published in the Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. read more
