Myocardial infarction: The role of the X chromosome

Dear Sir or Madam,

Women get it later, but they die from it more often, whereas, overall, men are affected more often. The talk is of myocardial infarction. This disease differs in men and women.

Have a sunny day!

Peptides vs. superbugs

Several peptides have an antibacterial effect - but they are broken down in the human body too quickly to exert this effect. Empa researchers have now succeeded in encasing peptides in a protective coat, which could prolong their life in the human body.
