  • Tool to distribute limited vaccines equitably January 15, 2021
    Researchers have developed a tool that incorporates a person's age and socioeconomic status to prioritize vaccine distribution among people who otherwise share similar risks due to their jobs.
  • Scientists identify nutrient that helps prevent bacterial infection January 15, 2021
    Scientists studying the body's natural defenses against bacterial infection have identified a nutrient -- taurine -- that helps the gut recall prior infections and kill invading bacteria, such as Klebsiella pneumoniae (Kpn). The finding could aid efforts seeking alternatives to antibiotics.
  • RNA's mysterious folding process January 15, 2021
    Using data from RNA-folding experiments, the researchers generated the first-ever data-driven movies of how RNA folds as it is made by cellular machinery. By watching their videos of this folding occur, the researchers discovered that RNA often folds in surprising, perhaps unintuitive ways, such as tying itself into knots.
  • Target discovered that halts osteoarthritis-type knee cartilage degeneration January 15, 2021
    In a mouse study, researchers used nanotechnology and previous knowledge of a protein pathway to significantly reduce knee cartilage degeneration and pain.
  • Breathing easier with a better tracheal stent January 15, 2021
    New research is poised to drastically improve the use of tracheal stents for children with airway obstruction. Researchers demonstrate for the first time the successful use of a completely biodegradable magnesium-alloy tracheal stent that safely degrades and does not require removal.
  • New delivery method promises relief from antipsychotic medication's adverse side effects January 15, 2021
    A team of neuroscientists and engineers has created a nasal spray to deliver antipsychotic medication directly to the brain instead of having it pass through the body.
  • Could altering mealtimes prevent development of Type 2 diabetes? January 15, 2021
    An innovative new study is set to examine if changing our mealtimes to earlier or later in the day could reduce the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
  • Increased risk of Parkinson's disease in patients with schizophrenia January 15, 2021
    A new study shows that patients with a schizophrenia spectrum disorder have an increased risk of Parkinson's disease later in life. The increased risk may be due to alterations in the brain's dopamine system caused by dopamine receptor antagonists or neurobiological effects of schizophrenia.
  • Designer cytokine makes paralyzed mice walk again January 15, 2021
    Using gene therapy, a research team has succeeded in getting mice to walk again after a complete cross-sectional injury. The nerve cells produced the curative protein themselves.
