Researchers create new approach to reduce risk of dental implant failure

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 22:15:45 -0400

According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, 15 million Americans have crown or bridge replacements and three million have dental implants -- with this latter number rising by 500,000 a year.

Virus hydrophobicity could help in vaccine purification

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 22:10:59 -0400

A person doesn't have to get sick to catch a virus. Researchers hope to catch viruses for detection and vaccinations by understanding their sticky outer layers.

Zika continues to plague babies in Rio’s sprawling urban slums even after Olympics

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 21:46:36 -0400

Many international travelers to the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, openly considered skipping the games to avoid the threat of Zika.

New high-speed computational software could reveal deeper insights into neuronal function

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 21:26:45 -0400

Unlike experimental neuroscientists who deal with real-life neurons, computational neuroscientists use model simulations to investigate how the brain functions.

Researchers develop new lab-on-a-chip platform that aims to improve pathogen detection

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 21:17:00 -0400

Nuclear amplification testing is commonly used for pathogen detection; however, the process is currently manually intensive and complex, and requires dedicated equipment. This prevents its use in some settings, and pathogen detection in individual samples.

Americans with lower socioeconomic status have highest smoking rates

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 21:12:10 -0400

After decades of declining US smoking rates overall, most remaining smokers have low income, no college education, no health insurance or a disability, according to research from the Colorado School of Public Health at CU Anschutz.

Berkeley researchers search for cancer clues in sample of blood

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 21:04:18 -0400

One day, patients may be able to monitor their body's response to cancer therapy just by having their blood drawn. A new study, led by bioengineers at UC Berkeley, has taken an important step in that direction by measuring a panel of cancer proteins in rare, individual tumor cells that float in the blood.

New CDISC data standard assists in development of potential Ebola treatments

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 14:45:56 -0400

The Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium and the Infectious Diseases Data Observatory announce the availability of a new standard to assist in the collection, aggregation and analysis of Ebola virus disease research data.

New method using gold microstructures could effectively deliver drugs or DNA into cells

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 14:30:42 -0400

The ability to deliver cargo like drugs or DNA into cells is essential for biological research and disease therapy but cell membranes are very good at defending their territory.

Review provides new understanding of cytokine mediated effects on inflammatory disorders

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 14:25:18 -0400

Researchers studying chronic inflammation that can lead to the development of lung diseases such as asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, and cancer, are focusing on the role cytokines play in regulating the behavior of fibroblast cells and the extracellular matrix.
