A team of scientists have discovered that stem cells can regenerate nerves to support old damaged nerves and repair their motor functions in Parkinson’s disease. Although their study was based on a mouse model with Parkinson’s, it gives a solid direction as to how stem cell treatment could tackle this unfortunate degenerative disease.
Research on obesity and related diseases is always a top demanding area in science. Although we all know the golden rule to reduce fat, which is working out or eating less, how this fat is actually reduced or what drives the motion is still unclear.
A novel technique to manage diabetes non-invasively using static electric and magnetic fields has been developed by a team of scientists at the University of Iowa. Their new discovery has already successfully managed “2 major hallmarks of type-2 diabetes” in mice.
A reusable mask which has a filter paper made from Titanium oxide nanowire has been proven to trap and kill pathogens that may also be used against SARS-CoV-2 and EBOLA. Once used, this mask can be disinfected under ultraviolet (UV) light. EPFL laboratory led the research.
Scientists from Japan have found a novel and an effective way to kill cancer cells using Gold. The team from Japan’s RIKEN institute tells us that, when gold is used in a catalytic reaction inside the body, it could effectively activate drugs that kill cancer cells.
A recent study has shown promising results in anti-ageing and in increasing the healthspan of mice. Researchers from the Buck Institute for research on aging in the USA have discovered that a natural metabolite called, alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG) is capable of decreasing the morbidity rate in older mice and making them healthier in their late life.
A group of scientists in Hungary accidentally procreated two totally different endangered fish species which resulted in the birth of a never-seen-before fish!
The genome sequencing of a rare nocturnal animal (Sphenodon punctatus) only found in New Zealand has amazed scientists. The genomic results have placed it as neither a reptile, a mammal nor a bird but a combination of all! Its genomic architecture is so uncommon, similar to no other previously recorded.
This is Stan, one of the most complete, largest and broadly studied Tyrannosaurus Rex skeletons. Stan had been a very popular exhibit at the Black Hills Institute in the USA for decades and it is now being listed to auctioned by Christie’s the Art company.
