The discovery provides more information about coral reef health and may help tackle the problem of coral bleaching.Continue ReadingCategory
The gold standard for storing lungs for transplant procedures has been to pack them in ice in coolers, which keeps them at roughly 4 °C (39 °F). But a look back at lung transplant research has revealed that there's an even better temperature at which to store donor lungs, which will dramatically improve the time during which they remain viable.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Trans
The Mitsubishi Outlander was fully redesigned for the 2022 model year, but its plug-in hybrid (PHEV) model was not. That came this year, with a total reconfiguration of the small sport utility.

It’s well known that the engine room of cells, the mitochondria, have a key role in fueling cancer growth. Treatments have targeted these microscopic organelles in many ways, including by blocking their food source to inhibit energy production, knocking them out with a cocktail of drugs and using their output as an early sign of cancer.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Lung cancer,
