Scientists create computer simulation based on digital microbes

Researchers at University of Galway associated with APC Microbiome Ireland have created a resource of over 7,000 digital microbes—enabling computer simulations of how drug treatments work and how patients may respond.

Personalized medicine for cats with heart disease

Veterinarians at the University of California, Davis, have found that a cat's DNA alters how it responds to a life-saving medication used to treat hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, or HCM, a heart disease that affects 1 in 7 cats. ...

New universal carrier ink for 3-D printing

Researchers at ETH have produced a gel from cellulose fibers and biodegradable nanoparticles that liquefies when pressed through the nozzle of a 3-D printer, but then quickly returns to its original shape. Their invention ...

Artificial 'inclusion bodies' created for controlled drug release

Precision medicine is becoming increasingly important, creating more efficient personalised therapies for each patient and innovative pharmacological developments. In the oncology field, for example, researchers are developing ...

New method refines cell sample analysis

Researchers at the University of Zurich have developed a novel method for analyzing cells and their components called iterative indirect immunofluorescence imaging (4i). This innovation greatly refines the standard immunofluorescence ...

Screening for disease or toxins in a drop of blood

The promise of being able to quickly and accurately screen for diseases or chemical contaminants in a tiny drop of blood has long been an elusive goal. But scientist Daojing Wang says his company's technology is up to the ...
