THE JAPANESE HAVE DEVELOPED A UNIQUE DEVICE FOR QUICK TEST FOR VIRUSES

Scientists at the National Institute of industrial science and technology in Japan in collaboration with Nihon Itagarasu has developed a unique device for rapid tests for viruses. If now the survey takes about an hour, then using a new device it is reduced to 10 minutes. Continue reading “THE JAPANESE HAVE DEVELOPED A UNIQUE DEVICE FOR QUICK TEST FOR VIRUSES”

CREATED THE FIRST VACCINE AGAINST SALMONELLOSIS FOR ORAL ADMINISTRATION

Researchers from the University of Texas (The University of Texas) have developed a vaccine against salmonellosis, designed for reception through the mouth. Earlier the same group of scientists had already proposed options for vaccines administered by injection and protects against three species of Salmonella, however, the oral route of administration easier and is less invasive. In addition, this way the bacteria usually enter the body. Continue reading “CREATED THE FIRST VACCINE AGAINST SALMONELLOSIS FOR ORAL ADMINISTRATION”

SCIENTISTS HAVE CREATED A UNIVERSAL ANTIDOTE AGAINST SNAKE VENOMS

According to the world health organization, snake bite nearly 5 million people each year, more than 100,000 are bitten die. Existing antidote is quite effective, but they are relatively expensive, and most importantly — not universal, that is, each antidote helps from the bite of a certain snake, and not all hospitals have the full set of antidotes. Now, researchers from the University of California have developed a synthetic antidote with a long shelf life, which may neutralize the venom of several species of snakes. Continue reading “SCIENTISTS HAVE CREATED A UNIVERSAL ANTIDOTE AGAINST SNAKE VENOMS”

ISRAELI SCIENTISTS HAVE DEVELOPED A WRIST PATCH FOR MIGRAINE

Specialists of the Medical center “Rambam” and the Israeli Institute of technology have developed and successfully tested electrostimulating patches migraine. The device is placed on the hand and is easily hidden under clothing. Details of the scientific work described in the journal Neurology.

BIOLOGISTS HAVE CONVERTED SKIN CELLS INTO STEM WITHOUT FOREIGN GENES

Scientists at the University of Buffalo proved that adult skin cells can transform into the cells of the neural folds (a type of stem) without any genetic modification. This discovery can be applied from studies of genetic diseases to regenerate damaged cells of the patient. Continue reading “BIOLOGISTS HAVE CONVERTED SKIN CELLS INTO STEM WITHOUT FOREIGN GENES”

Scientists recommend pregnant women to use some cleaning products

Scientists recommend pregnant women to use some cleaning setstatusactual household in parents may lead to developmental defects of the fetus – that is the conclusion of scientists cited the results of a new study. Chemicals known as Quaternary ammonium compounds or Quaternary ammonium salts, are usually used as disinfectants or preservatives in household or personal care products: detergents, washing powders, fabric softeners, shampoos, hair conditioners and drops for the eyes. It turned out that these substances are associated with the development of neural tube defects of the fetus such as spina bifida and anencephaly.

How to reduce cholesterol in the blood: a new discovery of scientists

Is it possible to immunize the person so that to reduce the level of cholesterol and prevent the narrowing of blood vessels due to fat deposits? This type of therapy has been successfully tested with animals, and now scientists are conducting phase I clinical trials of the efficacy and safety of a new “vaccine” for humans.
