Skin patch that offers antibiotic resistance crisis

Cold plasma cures the non-healing wounds and rejuvenates the cells

An innovational skin patch that has the ability to reduce the body fat

A new gel for growing large quantities of neural stem cells

A new gel that could help grow the large quantities of neural stem cells needed for sought-after therapies has been developed by the researchers from Stanford University. Its success depends on the cells’ ability to stay in touch. On the one hand, these natural shapeshifters can transform themselves into virtually any type of cell in the body, they hold the promise of being able to cure ills ranging from spinal cord injuries to cancers (lat. Carcinoma). But on the other, stem cells are complicated to work with.

Small antibiotic beads combat infections after joint replacement

Scientists from Houston Methodist in collaboration with Rice University and UTHealth developed antibiotic microspheres that are as tiny as grains of salt and intended to release antibiotics at a level high enough to kill infections for at least three to six weeks when an infection is most likely to develop.

How a promising Alzheimer's drug turns back the cellular clock

A promising Alzheimer's drug that works on the molecular level has been identified by Salk Institute scientists. Alzheimer's is a devastating disease, and with the world's average population getting older, its effects will be felt further and wider in the future. A drug dubbed J147, developed by the Salk Institute, is one of the most promising candidates to treat Alzheimer's, but just how it worked at the molecular level remained a mystery.

A Perovskite cathode for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells Operating below 500 degree

An innovational cathode for low-temperature solid-oxide fuel cells was created. The solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) has the ability to convert the fuel's chemical energy into an electric by oxidizing the fuel. It is comparatively cheap and characterized by production and stability. Moreover, it produces little harmful elements. Australian scientists have developed for it a new, more productive cathode, coated with strontium oxide and cobalt (SrCoO3-6) with niobium (Nb5 +) and tantalum (Ta5 +).

New drug capsule for weekly HIV treatment to help patients stick to their dosing schedule

A capsule that can deliver a week's worth of HIV drugs in a single dose has been developed by the researchers from MIT and Brigham and Women's Hospital. This advance could make it much easier for patients to adhere to the strict schedule of dosing required for the drug cocktails used to fight the virus. The new capsule is designed so that patients can take it just once a week, and the drug will release gradually throughout the week.
