It was concluded that Vitamin C modulated the physiology and metabolism of the TB pathogen by inducing dormancy, slowing down its growth and subjected it to multiple stress factors in order to boost the efficacy of TB drugs.
Scientists from MIT have developed an ingestible chip involving a genetically engineered probiotic E. coli strain that can monitor the gut health. By consuming this chip, a light would be generated by detecting the blood flow in the gut region. The quantity of light generated would be transmitted to a smartphone, which could easily diagnose any kind of gastrointestinal distress.

Dr. Paul Curtin along with his colleagues from Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City have discovered that autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can be predicted in advance, by looking at zinc and copper metabolic cycles in a baby’s teeth. This discovery could lead to the development of novel diagnostic tools with a 90% accuracy level.
