One such a research team is from Newcastle University where they have invented a 3D bioprint cornea, in order to control and focus the entry of light into the eye. By using a simple 3D bio-printer, the team united healthy corneal stem cells using hydration and alginate to produce ’bio-ink’. It is a simple solution used to replicate a human embryo form within 10 minutes.
Hepatitis is considered as the seventh leading cause of death throughout the world, where half of the deaths occur due to hepatitis B viral infection. Early cost-effective diagnosis could help in treating the affected patients without any delay.
A research team from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has developed a blood test to detect autism by measuring metabolites from blood samples well in advance. The research work was recently published in Bioengineering & Translational Medicine.
According to the WHO, a redeveloped drug that can withstand high temperatures and stay effective for 1,000 days could "revolutionize the ability" to keep new mothers alive. The medicine is called heat-stable carbetocin, and could possibly change the fate of numerous women throughout the world.
Social media is becoming an increasingly more prevalent force in our daily lives, especially amongst teens and posting selfies has a major part of self-expression. But how has this influenced and changed behavior? A new study published in The Journal of Early Adolescence reported that teens who post more online selfies were more aware of their appearance, which is indirectly linked to an increased risk of negative body image.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is defined as a condition which affects airways and alveoli, leading to the loss of lung function in a progressive manner. COPD is the fourth leading cause of death globally and has affected more than 200 million people throughout the world.
More than 2.5 million people work night-shifts. In 2007, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) reported that working shifts generally disturbs momentum classified as being “probably carcinogenic to humans”.
Scientists from the University of Texas have developed a way to sense dangerous chemicals, a basic model consisting of a smartphone and a box made from Lego bricks, which could help scientists to identify deadly and difficult-to-detect nerve agents such as sarin and VX. The new approach combines a chemical sensor with photography to notice and recognize different nerve agents.
A research team from the University of California, Los Angeles, United States has revealed that deep learning (a form of AI) can distinctively increase microscopic resolutions in photos taken via smartphones.
