Valproic acid is a drug used to treat epilepsy, bipolar disorder and other psychiatric illnesses. While use of this drug by pregnant women has been associated with developmental and cognitive problems in children exposed during pregnancy, the mechanisms by which it causes these problems remain poorly understood.

New drilling fluid technology advancing mineral exploration
Researchers at Curtin University have developed new technology for the rapid cleaning and re-use of drilling fluids, paving the way toward more efficient and environmentally-friendly mineral exploration. Designed to support next-generation drilling technology, the reformulated fluids are hydrocarbon-free, reducing the risk of environmental harm to exploration sites.

Large Hadron Collider project discovers three new exotic particles
The Large Hadron Collider beauty (LHCb) collaboration has announced the discovery of three new exotic particles. Exotic particles, such as these, had only been theorised but not observed until recently. These exotic particles are built out of quarks. "Like proton or neutrons, the particles that make up the nucleus of the atom, these new particles are made up of quarks", explained Chris Parkes, Professor of Experimental Particle Physics at The University of Manchester.

Team validates a new method for assessing the antimicrobial efficacy of domestic cleaning products
Environmental awareness in society is changing household laundry habits, where the use of less bleach and lower temperatures during washing machine cycles is encouraged. In this context, disinfectants added to detergents have become an essential factor to compensate for these new habits and to prevent the transmission of bacteria, fungi and viruses in the house, as well as to control the level of odour-causing micro-organisms on clothes.

Shedding light on comet Chury's unexpected chemical complexity
Shedding light on comet Chury’s unexpected chemical complexity
A team of researchers led by the University of Bern has for the first time identified an unexpected richness of complex organic molecules at a comet. This was achieved thanks to the analysis of data collected during ESA-s Rosetta mission at comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, also known as Chury. Delivered to the early Earth by impacting comets, these organics may have helped to kick-start carbon-based life as we know it.

Making it easier to differentiate mirror-image molecules
Making it easier to differentiate mirror-image molecules
Using a new method, scientists are better able to distinguish between mirror-image substances. This is important amongst others in drug development, because the two variants can cause completely different effects in the human body. Researchers from Paul Scherrer Institute PSI, EPF Lausanne (EPFL), and the University of Geneva describe the new method in the scientific journal Nature Photonics .

Molecule boosts fat burning
Molecule boosts fat burning
Study identifies a new signaling molecule that increases the energy consumption of brown fat cells A study led by the University of Bonn and the University Hospital Bonn has identified a molecule - the purine inosine - that boosts fat burning in brown adipocytes. The mechanism was discovered in mice, but probably exists in humans as well: If a transporter for inosine is less active, the mice remain significantly leaner despite a high-fat diet.

How Omicron dodges the immune system
How Omicron dodges the immune system
By comparing the neutralisation capacity induced by the different variants of SARS-CoV-2, a team from the UNIGE and the HUG reveals the exceptional capacity of Omicron to evade our immunity. The current wave of COVID-19 highlights a particularly high risk of reinfection by the Omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2.

Why it is so hard for humans to have a baby?
Professor Laurence Hurst from the Milner Centre for Evolution finds solution to the mystery of why most human embryos die young. New research by a scientist at the Milner Centre for Evolution at the University of Bath suggests that -selfish chromosomes- explain why most human embryos die very early on.

Insulin is an extreme financial burden for over 14% of Americans who use it
Over 30 million Americans have diabetes, and more than 7 million of them require daily insulin. But the cost of the drug has risen considerably in the last decade. Though U.S. lawmakers are considering policies to address the challenge, not much is known about who is most burdened by insulin prices.

The Higgs particle turns ten
Detailed insights into the nature of the Higgs boson could help answer big open questions in physics Exactly ten years ago, the Atlas and CMS experiments announced a resounding success: Little less than three years after the launch of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at Cern, the last missing piece in the Standard Model of particle physics had been found: The Higgs boson, a kind of messenger of the Higgs field that in turn gives mass to all matter particles.

Watching gut bacteria eat - and learning from it for medicine
New microscopy method enables high-speed functional analysis of microbiomes Microbiomes shape the health of humans and the environment. How they do this is revealed by an analysis of the functions that individual microbes assume in these communities of microorganisms. Scientists at the University of Vienna, in collaboration with photonics experts at Boston University, have developed a microscopy method that allows them to identify bacterial cells in milliseconds and simultaneously determine their metabolic activity.

Molecular machines control a sizeable number of fundamental processes in nature. Embedded in a cellular environment, these processes play a central role in the intracellular and intercellular transportation of molecules, as well as in muscle contraction in humans and animals. In order for the entire organism to function, a well-defined orientation and arrangement of the molecular machines is essential.

Reforesting fallow land: a false sense of security?
Reforesting fallow land: a false sense of security?
Uncultivated agricultural land can capture as much carbon as land that has been reforested The federal government has committed to planting 2 billion trees by 2030 in order to reduce the amount of atmospheric CO2 and slow global warming. With this in mind, the idea of using abandoned farmland to plant some of these trees seems like an obvious and interesting strategy, but work by a team of scientists has shown that it is not.However, work carried out by a Quebec research team shows that one should be wary of the obvious.

New method improves diagnosis of fatty liver disease
It is important to know whether patients have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) or alcohol-related liver disease (ALD), as this distinction plays a key role in treatment and prognosis but cannot be reliably determined by established diagnostic means. In a study led by MedUni Vienna, a new method has now been used to determine alcohol consumption in fatty liver disease.

Blood test could predict future risk of leukaemia, study finds A blood test could predict risk of developing leukaemia in the elderly population years in advance by identifying changes in blood cell production, according to new research. By identifying those most at risk it should be possible to provide preventive or early treatment in the future to improve patient outcomes, experts say.
