22.05.2018 Researchers have designed a powerful glue for broken bones
The treatment of fractures can last up to 12 weeks. If the lower extremities are damaged, the person has to stay in a lying position for a long time or use crutches. As The Daily Mail notes Swedish scientists have designed a unique glue that can fix a fracture just in 5 minutes.
02.04.2018 A team of researchers have found how to regain mobility after the spine fracture
Scientists rely on electrostimulation of the spinal cord and special "fitness". It was known that even with the most serious injuries of the spinal cord, some of its nerve fibers remain intact. But they are not involved in the human motor system directly. The experts suggest to switch neuronic chains, by reorienting them to a new task. Electrostimulation and training in a special exoskeleton may help to do this.
30.03.2018 Scientists say that linoleic acid may protect from untimely death and heart disease
Scientists of the University of Eastern Finland believe that omega-6 fatty acids are the key to reducing the risk of untimely death. In addition, they prevent the development of cardiovascular diseases, RIA News reports. According to the scientists, linoleic acid is the most common polyunsaturated fatty acid omega-6.
29.03.2018 Smart computer program may replace medical diagnosticians
Chinese scientists have developed a self-learning artificial intelligence capable to diagnose prostate cancer by separating samples of a sick person from healthy tissue samples. The system evaluation accuracy is comparable to the accuracy of real diagnosticians, The Deccan Chronicle reports.
27.03.2018 Popular drugs contribute to spreading antibiotic resistance
Because of statins, tablets for allergies and other commonly used drugs, the problem of antibiotic resistance is becoming more urgent. As The Daily Mail notes, researchers from Germany have found that a quarter of drugs inhibits the growth of bacteria in the intestine.
26.03.2018 Researchers are sure that a universal remedy against malaria is found
A team of scientists has discovered a new human antibody that can prevent malaria infection. This happens due to involving a special part of the surface protein, which is available in almost all types of malarial parasite, Zee News reports. This antibody (CIS43) has a better protection against malaria than any other known antibody.
09.03.2018 Scientists have discovered a new class of antibiotics
Antibiotic bacteria resistance is one of the most acute problems in medicine. The lack of new drugs and the reckless use of antibiotics led to a major crisis in the treatment of infectious diseases. As The Daily Mail notes, many bacteria causing deadly diseases are not afraid of antibiotics, absolutely.
06.03.2018 Scientists have found molecules that can destroy tumors
Selenium is a powerful antioxidant, useful for health. TrxR1 enzyme, containing selenium, supports the growth of cells and protects them from oxidative stress. Previous studies have shown that selenium is associated with the development of cancer, but this correlation is complex and not well studied, The Deccan Chronicle reports.
09.10.2018 According to scientists, standard blood tests and blind treatment are a thing of the past
In the future, everyone will have a chip with stem cells inside. This chip may actually replace the medical card. It is going to be used to perform laboratory tests and to create a truly personalized medicine (each drug can be tested on such chip without endangering the person). From the biological point of view, the system is as complex as possible. Plus, it has the genetic imprint of the cells owner.This means that tests will be as accurate as possible.
02.03.2018 Experts have changed their attitude to vaccinations of pregnant women
American scientists from the US Centers for Control and Prevention of Diseases call on pregnant women not to be afraid of immunization and to become more actively vaccinated against the flu. Also, the experts suggest the introduction of adsorbed DTP vaccine, "Remedium" reports.
