In the future, many diseases may be treated by tiny robots swimming through the bloodstream, delivering drugs. The latest test of these kinds of medical machines comes from researchers at the Max Planck Institute, who took inspiration from white blood cells to create a new micro-robot design that can move against the current of blood flow.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Robot, Rob
Los Angeles-based Cuff Studio is presenting a collection of furniture and lighting as part of the VDF x Sight Unseen collaboration, which balances angular, architectural shapes with playful, feminine touches. Read more
I know a thing or two about gout. It's horrible. If you're susceptible to it, eating the wrong food can trigger deposits of uric acid salts to crystallize into spiky pain bombs in your joints. Often, this happens in the big toe, but in my case they seem to center around old injuries in my ankles and knees.

New research conducted by a University of Exeter medical school student may have discovered a novel early-stage biomarker for a number of different cancers. The research found subjects with abnormally small red blood cells were twice as likely to be diagnosed with cancer as those with normal blood results.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Cancer, Blood, Diagnosis, University of Exet
In a first-of-its-kind study thousands of people with no history of cancer were screened with a new experimental multi-cancer blood test. Promisingly, the results caught a number of pre-symptomatic early stage cancers, but the test did miss some cancers suggesting it most likely will need to be used in combination with other diagnostic tools.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Cancer,
