Study: Viral infection in nose can trigger middle ear infection

16.9.2014   |   Newly on Gate2Biotech

Middle ear infections, which affect more than 85 percent of children under the age of 3, can be triggered by a viral infection in the nose rather than solely by a bacterial infection, according to researchers at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. By simultaneously infecting the nose with a flu virus and a bacterium that is one of the leading...

15.9.2014   |   Newly on Gate2Biotech

Accidents as minor as a slip of the knife while chopping onions can turn dangerous for patients with hemophilia, who lack the necessary proteins in their blood to stem the flow from a wound. People with severe hemophilia typically receive regular injections of these proteins, called clotting factors, as a treatment for the disease. But up to 30...

NIST therapy for ultraviolet laser beams: Hydrogen-treated fibers

10.9.2014   |   Newly on Gate2Biotech

To make a better optical fiber for transmitting laser beams, the first idea that comes to mind is probably not a nice long hydrogen bath. And yet, scientists have known for years that hydrogen can alter the performance of optical fibers, which are often used to transmit or even generate laser light in optical devices.

CRI scientists pinpoint gene likely to promote childhood cancers

2.9.2014   |   Newly on Gate2Biotech

Researchers at the Children’s Medical Center Research Institute at UT Southwestern (CRI) have identified a gene that contributes to the development of several childhood cancers, in a study conducted with mice designed to model the cancers. If the findings prove to be applicable to humans, the research could lead to new strategies for targeting...
