Researchers from the University of Bristol and University Hospital Southampton have found that a drug used widely to treat a common eye condition has 'no benefit' and should no longer be used. Eplerenone, which is primarily used to treat heart failure, is currently offered widely by ophthalmologists as a treatment for central serous chorioretinopathy (CSCR) based on limited clinical data.
A series of ground-breaking events that aim to change the way we talk about drug use, policy and harm reduction launches in Bristol tomorrow [Thursday 23 January].
With funding from Cabot Institute for the Environment , BZS and the EPSRC 's CASCADE grant, a joint team flew to Cameroon in December to trial the use of drones, sensor technologies and deployment
New research has shown that by changing the time course of voltage change early when the heart cell contracts it is possible to both withhold a potentially lethal electrical disturbance and improve the strength of cardiac contraction in heart failure at the same time.
About 800,000 years ago, the giant straight-tusked elephant Palaeoloxodon migrated out of Africa and became widespread across Europe and Asia.
A new study shows for the first time that the striking iridescent colours seen in some animals increase their chances of survival against predators by acting as a means of camouflage. Rather than reveal it seems these dynamically changing shades are used to conceal, according to the University of Bristol study published today [23 January] in Current Biology.
The pilot scheme, Drive , worked with 506 prolific domestic violence perpetrators, aged 17 to 81, mostly white men of whom nearly half were involved in ongoing legal proceedings in the criminal or civil courts.
Over the last two decades, scientists have been keeping a close eye on the atmospheric concentration of a hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) gas, known as HFC-23. This gas has very few industrial applications.
Material falling into a black hole throws X-rays out into space - and now, for the first time, the European Space Agency's (ESA) XMM-Newton X-ray observatory has used the reverberating echoes of this light to map the dynamic behaviour and surroundings of a black hole itself.
A team of physicists and chemists from the University of Bristol hope to recycle radioactive material directly from a former nuclear power plant in Gloucestershire to generate ultra-long-lasting power sources.
