Although a large volume of anecdotal reports have been published over the last few years affirming the value of LSD microdosing, there has been very little scientific or empirical study on this compelling phenomenon. A fascinating new study from scientists at the University of Chicago is offering the very first placebo-controlled clinical research testing the mood-altering, physiological a
Through a string of interesting studies scientists have been able to probe the links between blood flow to the brain and declining cognitive function. One particularly promising and recent example demonstrated how a drug commonly used for high blood pressure could be used to treat diseases like Parkinson's and dementia. Scientists in the Netherlands have now uncovered another candidate, fi
Despite some promising research, there is currently no one reliable cure for vitiligo. There may be new hope, however, as a recent study has shown an existing medication to be quite effective at repigmenting the affected skin...

A team from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) has developed a non-invasive tool which not only detects circulating tumor cells (CTCs) in the bloodstream, but can blast them away at the same time. Dubbed the Cytophone, it employs a laser which heats the CTCs, subsequently detecting them via ultrasound before turning up the heat again to kill them. .. Continue Reading Cy
Following on from an incredible recent Yale University study, examining the metabolic relationship between hundreds of common medications and different gut bacterial species, a new study has offered the first rigorous description of how a single bacterial species can specifically disrupt the efficacy of a drug used to treat Parkinson's disease...

A landmark study, led by a team of scientists from King's College London and the University of Cambridge, has described the mechanism responsible for the hardening of arteries. The research also points to a common antibiotic as a potential new treatment to prevent this condition. ..

New research from the University of Virginia is suggesting an unhealthy gut microbiome can actively promote the spread of breast cancer. Through a series of animal experiments the new study demonstrated how disruptions to gut bacterial populations can drive metastatic spread of tumor cells...

Kodak Alaris has given a boost to those waiting for newly resurrected Ektachrome E100 to be introduced in formats larger than 35mm with an announcement that it will be testing a new coating process at the end of next month to make roll film. The company has said in the past that the process for coating 35mm film and 120 roll and sheet films is different and that the method used to make the initia
Radiotherapy is an effective method for killing cancer, but the downside is that it harms healthy cells at the same time, sometimes leading to complications. Now researchers from CNIO in Spain have found that boosting levels of a certain protein in the intestines of mice can protect against radiation damage, which could improve the health of cancer patients, victims of nuclear disasters, a
Fieldwork Robotics – a spinout company from the University of Plymouth in the UK – has announced the successful completion of early field trials of a raspberry-harvesting robot. If commercialized, the system could help make up for a shortage of human fruit pickers in the country...
