While titanium implants such as artificial hips can greatly improve patients' lives, they're also subject to serious bacterial infections. An experimental new antibacterial titanium alloy, however, could make such problems a thing of the past.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Washington State University, Implant, Titanium, Alloy, Antibacterial
It’s well documented that vitamin B12, or cobalamin, helps red blood cells form and facilitates DNA synthesis that protects genetic mutations in our cells. It is also crucial in the development and ongoing function of our brain and nerve cells. Now, scientists have found that this micronutrient also plays a key role in cellular reprogramming and tissue regeneration.Continue ReadingCategory: Medic
Scientists have identified the molecular mechanism that causes a losing zebrafish to withdraw from a battle. While fighting fish in general may not spark a lot of interest, the fact that zebrafish and humans have very similar neurobiology means this discovery could be significant for treating mood disorders.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: RIKEN, zebrafish, Brain, Neuroscience, Anx
Typically thought of as a bendy black confection, the root form of licorice has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat a range of conditions. Now, a new study shows that a compound from the root is highly effective at fighting pancreatic tumor growth.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Health, Cancer, Pancreatic cancer, Cells, Hong Kong Baptist University, Herbs, Tumo
