'Skin-like' device monitors cardiovascular and skin health

30/09/2014 - A new wearable medical device can quickly alert a person if they are having cardiovascular trouble or if it's simply time to put on some skin moisturizer, reports a Northwestern University and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign study. read more

First mouse model for ALS dementia

29/09/2014 - The first animal model for ALS dementia, a form of ALS that also damages the brain, has been developed by Northwestern Medicine scientists. The advance will allow researchers to directly see the brains of living mice, under anesthesia, at the microscopic level. This will allow direct monitoring of test drugs to determine if they work. read more

Calming down immune cells could hold key to melanoma treatment

29/09/2014 - Cancer Research UK scientists at The University of Manchester found that chemical signals produced by a type of immune cell, called macrophages, also act as a survival signal for melanoma cells. read more

Engineered proteins stick like glue even in water

26/09/2014 - Shellfish such as mussels and barnacles secrete very sticky proteins that help them cling to rocks or ship hulls, even underwater. Inspired by these natural adhesives, a team of MIT engineers has designed new materials that could be used to repair ships or help heal wounds and surgical incisions. read more

Influenza A potentiates pneumococcal co-infection

26/09/2014 - Influenza infection can enhance the ability of the bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae to cause ear and throat infections, according to research published ahead of print in the journal Infection and Immunity. read more

Mechanism of Parkinson's spread demonstrated

25/09/2014 - An international, interdisciplinary group of researchers led by Gabor G. Kovacs from the Clinical Institute of Neurology at the MedUni Vienna has demonstrated, through the use of a new antibody, how Parkinson's disease spreads from cell to cell in the human brain. read more

Microfluidics: lab on a breathing chip

23/09/2014 - Human nasal epithelial cells, cultured on a microchip, react to air pollutants just like they would in the upper airway. read more

Battling superbugs

22/09/2014 - In recent years, new strains of bacteria have emerged that resist even the most powerful antibiotics. Each year, these superbugs, including drug-resistant forms of tuberculosis and staphylococcus, infect more than 2 million people nationwide, and kill at least 23,000. MIT engineers have now turned a powerful new weapon on these superbugs. read more

How stress tears us apart

19/09/2014 - A team from the EPFL Brain Mind Institute has discovered an important synaptic mechanism: the activation of a cleaving enzyme, leading to behavioral problems connected to chronic stress. read more

'Pocket doctor' diagnosis for degenerative disease

18/09/2014 - Smartphones will soon be able to perform the functions of a 'pocket doctor' and map Parkinson’s disease and other degenerative diseases, thanks to the work of an Aston University mathematician. With Smartphones now able to accurately record movement, activity, location and differences in vocal tone, extensive research is being conducted into their potential as a medical diagnostic tool. read more
