The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted accelerated approval to a new cancer drug called selinexor. This pill, which also goes by the market name Xpovio, has been found to be successful in treating multiple myeloma in patients that hadn't had success with other treatments. But at this very early stage the drug comes with some major caveats... Continue Reading FDA approves ris
A new drug delivery system has been developed that hides chemotherapy molecules inside fat cells that are quickly eaten up by hungry tumors. The method has been shown to be effective at targeting bone, colon and pancreatic cancers in animals, and human trials are proposed for the near future...

I’m Back, the company behind the popular Digital Back for old 35mm SLRs, is… well… back. And this time they’re funding an affordable digital back that seeks to breathe new life into old medium format cameras from Hasselblad, Bronica, Pentax, Mamiya and more.The IdeaSlapping a digital back onto older medium format bodies isn’t a new idea. Hasselblad released its CFV-5
Our bodies have powerful built-in defenses in the form of the immune system, but sometimes it needs an extra push. Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T cell therapy involves reprogramming T-cells to hunt down cancer, which has been effective against blood cancers but not so much against solid tumors. Now, scientists at MIT have found a way to supercharge the technique with a vaccine booster..
A huge range of drugs are in development to help fight cancer, but sometimes they work better in pairs than alone. Now researchers at MIT have identified a surprising new dynamic drug duo, combining two classes that are already beginning to be widely used. Interestingly, the combo appears to work in a completely different way to what scientists previously expected... Continue Reading MIT s
Incredibly thin, flexible, strong and electrically conductive, graphene has the potential to revolutionize electronics and materials. One of the main hurdles though is that it's tricky to manufacture on large scales. Now researchers at the University of Rochester have recruited bacteria to make the stuff, which is cheaper and faster than current methods and doesn't require harsh chemicals.
Looking for impurities in drinking water or other liquids typically involves chemical analysis, which may be time-consuming. Now, however, scientists have created an inexpensive system in which light – that's converted to sound – is used to instantly determine if water is safe to drink...

Nearly everything has changed, including the design, which is very similar to the G7 X Mark III which
BE AMAZED compiles a very eclectic list of trees from around the world, proving that the typical image you might have of a tree might not always be the right one. The post the world’s most amazing trees include rainbow eucalyptus and dragon’s blood appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Strange signals known as fast radio bursts (FRBs) are one of the most intriguing mysteries of modern astronomy, so the more of them we can locate, the closer we get to figuring what causes them. Now we're a step closer to solving the riddle, as astronomers have managed to trace an FRB back to its home galaxy, many billions of light-years away... Continue Reading Astronomers close in on the
