Low-Cost Battery-Like Device Captures Carbon Dioxide While It Charges
Researchers have developed a low-cost device that can selectively capture carbon dioxide gas while it charges, then release and collect it in a controlled way as it discharges to be reused or disposed of responsibly.
Multiple Myeloma Test Detects More Deadly Forms of the Disease
Investigators say that a standard test for the common blood cancer multiple myeloma also holds clear clues that the patient has one of the most uncommon and deadly forms of this cancer, IgD multiple myeloma.
How Active Suppression Can Fade Unwanted Memories
A natural disaster, a dented car, an injured person - memories of traumatic experiences can be controlled by deliberately suppressing the images that arise. Researchers have now shown that this process causes memories of the experiences to fade.
Shift in Cholesterol Metabolism Triggers “Death Spiral” in Maternal Octopuses
A new study by researchers from the University of Chicago, the University of Washington, and the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC) shows that the optic gland in maternal octopuses undergoes a massive shift in cholesterol metabolism, resulting in dramatic changes in the steroid hormones produced.
Dopamine Discovery Could Lead to Addiction Drugs
A team of researchers at the University of Copenhagen has discovered a new piece in the puzzle of the brain’s ‘feel good’ substance, dopamine.
Stem Cell Therapy Engineered To Treat Aggressive Brain Cancer
Investigators at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School have devised a novel therapeutic method using stem cells taken from healthy donors to treat glioblastomas post-surgery by attacking glioblastoma-specific tumor cells.
Gene-Targeted Approach Could Help Prevent and Treat Neonatal Brain Injuries
A gene-targeting approach could help prevent or treat neonatal brain injuries associated with oxidative stress following preterm birth.
Seascapes Shaped the Genetics of Ancient Populations
Trinity scientists, along with international colleagues, have explored the importance of sea travel in prehistory by examining the genomes of ancient Maltese humans and comparing these with the genomes of this period from across Europe.
How Genes and Environment Link Brain Structure to Socioeconomic Status
In the first study of its kind, Penn researchers and an international team of collaborators found that genetics and environmental factors contribute to how socioeconomic status shapes the architecture of the brain.
Gout Medication Improves Survival for Patients Hospitalized With Heart Failure
A new study published in Clinical Cardiology found that colchicine, A common gout medication, significantly improves survival rates for patients hospitalized with worsening heart failure.
Predicting Response to Arthritis Treatment by Studying Genes
Research from Queen Mary University of London has shown that molecular profiling of diseased joint tissue can significantly impact whether specific drug treatments will work to treat patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
