Improved imaging takes X-ray risks out of the picture

Improved imaging takes X-ray risks out of the picture
Fluoroscopy makes guiding a catheter through a blood vessel possible. However, fluoroscopy, a form of real-time moving X-ray, also exposes the patient to radiation. Now, a University of Missouri School of Medicine researcher has evaluated technology that may be used to replace fluoroscopy, eliminating the need for X-ray during cardiac ablation procedures.

Understanding skin cells could enhance anti-aging treatments

Understanding skin cells could enhance anti-aging treatments
A breakthrough in understanding human skin cells offers a pathway for new anti-ageing treatments. For the first time, scientists at Newcastle University have identified that the activity of a key metabolic enzyme found in the batteries of human skin cells declines with age. A study, published online in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, has found that the activity of mitochondrial complex II significantly decreases in older skin.

Scientists create healthier, diabetic-friendly bread

Scientists create healthier, diabetic-friendly bread
A team of food scientists from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has successfully formulated a recipe for making healthier bread by adding a natural plant pigment, called anthocyanin, extracted from black rice. This new bread option gets digested at a slower rate – hence improving blood glucose control – and is high in antioxidants, among other health benefits.

New technique allows researchers to fine-tune gene editing

Taking advantage of advanced microscopy techniques, a team of University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers has developed a highly efficient method for more precisely editing genes in populations of cells and viewing how individual cells change, in real time. The method could increase researchers' ability to target genetic defects while leaving the rest of the genome alone.

New method for rapid detection of infection in wounds

A new method for detection of infection in wounds could take physicians less than a minute to complete, rather than the current 24 hours it takes to plate bacteria and leave it to incubate overnight, according to research by the George Washington University’s (GW) Victoria Shanmugam, M.D.

Laser-based blood glucose monitor checks for diabetes

Laser-based blood glucose monitor checks for diabetes
A group of researchers, led by Prof. Yuji Matsuura of Tohoku University's Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering, has developed a method of measuring blood glucose using far infrared light, which is both harmless and non-invasive. Diabetes patients traditionally monitor their daily blood glucose levels by using a conventional meter which requires blood sampling from the finger tips.

Are you taking the real deal?

Are you taking the real deal?
A startup is building a smartphone-connected gadget that aims to tell you if the pill you’re about to take is really what you think it is by shining light on it. A scan of a known Viagra pill with Stratio’s LinkSquare spectrometer shows that it matches a reference scan. San Jose-based Stratio’s device, called LinkSquare, is a tiny spectrometer, a device that measures the intensity of wavelengths of light.

Nuclear radiation may be used to combat Zika virus

Nuclear radiation may be used to combat Zika virus
The United Nations' top nuclear watchdog group proposed the use of nuclear radiation treatment as a strategy to eliminate or reduce the mosquito population carrying the Zika virus. Yukiya Amano, Director of the International Atomic Energy Agency, announced this plan on last Sunday, before leaving for an official visit to Central America where the virus has been rapidly spreading.

Blood test can distinguish bacterial from viral infections

Blood test can distinguish bacterial from viral infections
A new test could help doctors tell whether a patient's flu-like symptoms of respiratory infection are viral or bacterial in origin, helping to avoid the overprescription of antibiotics in situations where they're not needed.
