Role of lymphatic system in bone healing revealed
Role of lymphatic system in bone healing revealed
It was previously assumed that bones lacked lymphatic vessels, but new research from the MRC Human Immunology Unit  at Oxford's MRC Weatherall Institute for Molecular Medicine  not only locates them within bone tissue, but demonstrates their role in bone and blood cell regeneration and reveals changes associated with aging.

A journey to the birthplace of Lager beer
A journey to the birthplace of Lager beer
Traveling through the Caucasus region in Georgia with two brewing experts Without barley, hops and yeast, there is no beer. Brewing specialist Dr. Martin Zarnkow and beverage microbiologist Dr. Mathias Hutzler believe that a very special yeast variety might be found in Georgia. So they embarked on a "yeast hunt" and investigated microbiology and brewing traditions in the Caucasus region.

’Remarkable’ results in colon cancer trial
Giving colon cancer patients chemotherapy before surgery cuts the risk of the disease coming back, according to the results of a new clinical trial. The FOxTROT trial, a collaborative study by scientists at Leeds and the University of Birmingham, showed that giving colon cancer patients chemotherapy before rather than after surgery reduced the chance of cancer returning within 2 years by 28%.

Researchers unravel the complex reaction pathways in zero carbon fuel synthesis
Researchers have used isotopes of carbon to trace how carbon dioxide emissions could be converted into low-carbon fuels and chemicals. The result could help the chemical industry, which is the third largest subsector in terms of direct CO2 emissions, recycle its own waste using current manufacturing processes.

Drones Collect Environmental Data
Drones Collect Environmental Data
Mapping trees, finding heat islands: Research drones offer many new options for small-scale observation of the environment. Earth observation, also known as remote sensing, provides highly relevant information about the state and change of our planet every day via satellite data worldwide. The data can be used, for example, to gather information about heat islands in cities, droughts or the condition of forests.

How post-feeding breasts bounce back from the brink of death to kick-start milk production
Scientists from the University of Sheffield have discovered a protein that kick-starts milk production after breastfeeding has paused The team found the Rac1 protein which turns milk-secreting cells into cannibalistic cell eaters to clear up dead cells and remove surplus milk, also kick-starts milk production after temporary pauses The groundbreaking study provides new insights into how breast cancer cells might acquire resistance to cell death

Does COVID really damage your immune system and make you more vulnerable to infections? The evidence is lacking
Over the past month or two, many northern hemisphere countries including the US and the UK have seen a large wave of respiratory viral infections. These include RSV ( respiratory syncytial virus ), flu and COVID in all ages, as well as bacterial infections such as strep A in children. Sometimes these infections can be very serious.

Evolution of epigenetics explored for the first time
Medicine & Science Christoph Bock's team at the CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine at the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Artificial Intelligence of MedUni Vienna established a catalog of DNA methylation across 580 animal species. These data ena-bled a detailed dissection of the evolution of epigenetic regulation and the epigenome.

When the screen harms the teen
Adolescents face problems of lowered self-esteem and higher risk of symptoms associated with eating disorders by spending so much time on social media, a new study finds. CONTENU - Patricia Conrod Increased social media use by teenagers is associated with a decrease in their self-esteem and a growth of symptoms associated with eating disorders, according to a new Canadian study.

Physical effect also valid in the quantum world
Physical effect also valid in the quantum world
Researchers at the University of Bonn confirm validity of a central theorem of physics for Bose-Einstein condensates Physicists at the University of Bonn have experimentally proven that an important theorem of statistical physics applies to so-called "Bose-Einstein condensates." Their results now make it possible to measure certain properties of the quantum "superparticles" and deduce system characteristics that would otherwise be difficult to observe.

Private patients receive treatment for heart conditions more often than those with basic health insurance
Patients in Switzerland with supplementary private health insurance are more likely to undergo cardiac procedures than those with only basic health insurance. This has been demonstrated in a study by researchers from the University of Basel and the Cantonal Hospital of Aarau. Switzerland has one of the most expensive healthcare systems in the world.

Method to preserve entanglement could enable new quantum tech
An international team of researchers has developed a new method of overcoming a key challenge for the development of future quantum tech. In a new paper published in the journal Physical Review X Quantum, the researchers describe how they may have solved a key problem for quantum technologies by keeping particles entangled in previously impossible conditions.

How Huntington's disease affects different neurons
How Huntington’s disease affects different neurons
A new study identifies cells that are the most vulnerable within a brain structure involved in mood and movement. Close In patients with Huntington's disease, neurons in a part of the brain called the striatum are among the hardest-hit. Degeneration of these neurons contributes to patients' loss of motor control, which is one of the major hallmarks of the disease.

Running: the 10% progress rule questioned
The belief that this rule will prevent injury is scientifically unfounded. This time, it's true, you're going to get in shape. If your plan is to do this by running, chances are that the program you find on the Internet or that is suggested to you by a trainer or friend will tell you that, to avoid injury, you should not increase your training volume by more than 10% each week.
