Carrot-Based Nanofibres Useful for Helmets, Find Researchers

Imagine carrot waste fibers used in manufacturing helmets. A new multi-perspective application selection (MPAS) method developed at Empa has identifed the bio-degradable wster for industrial use from the ecological aspect whereby nanofibers made of carrot waste was found to useful in the production of motorcycle helmets or side walls for motorhomes in the future. In order to clarify a new ...

New Culture Method May Lead to Personalised Cancer Treatment

Two Indian-origin researchers have developed a way to grow cancer cells in the laboratory that mimics the environment inside the body. This is expected to lead to the personalised treatment for people who are suffering from cancer. The researchers said that the new capture and culture method provides a reliable way to get usable numbers of circulating tumour cells from ...

New Non-Invasive MRI Scan to Detect Alzheimer’s Early Developed

Scientists have developed a new non-invasive MRI-based scanning method to detect Alzheimer’s disease in its early stages, that was not possible in the traditional imaging method, raising hope that drug makers can now focus on treating the disease at its early stage. The new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology can detect the amyloid beta brain toxins responsible for onset of the disease as ...

Protein Histone H3-3 Found To Have Altered, Stopped Cancer Cells’ Growth, Reveals Study

A protein called histone H3-3 plays significant role in capping the growth of cancerous cells, found researchers from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. They found during their experients that some changes to the protein structure altered the cancerous genes effectively stemming the cancer cell growth. Led by Emily Bernstein of Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, ...

New method to sequence genomes of the Ebola,makes surveillance quicker

A new cost-effective method to sequence genomes of the Ebola virus may eventually lead to quicker surveillance of the disease and effectively keep track of the outbreak even with limited resources. “Since the cost of preparation and sequencing is relatively low, and samples are the most precious commodity, our approach provides a great initial strategy for sequencing viral samples,” said ...

New Method to Make Drugs to Treat Cancer, Malaria

Scientists have developed a revolutionary new way to manufacture natural chemicals and used it to assemble a scarce anti-inflammatory drug with potential to treat cancer and malaria, a news release by the Australian National University (ANU) said on Tuesday. The breakthrough could lead to new and cheaper ways to produce rare drugs in large quantities. “We took small molecules and ...
