Peatland Protection Equals Efficient Climate Protection
Zurich-Reckenholz, 07.06.2018 - Is there a cost-efficient way to curb climate stress caused by land use? Globally, peatlands store twenty per cent of all the carbon lying untapped in the soil - despite the fact that they account for less than three per cent of the Earth's land mass. New findings from Agroscope show that peatland protection is a highly efficient climate-protection measure.

This may prove challenging in a country with a population of almost 1.4 billion, but with just under 13% of arable land, close to half of which is suffering from soil degradation.

Personalized vaccine may increase long-term survival in people with deadliest form of brain cancer
An international study led by UCLA researchers has found that a personalized vaccine may help people with glioblastoma, the deadliest form of brain cancer, live longer. The vaccine, known as DCVax-L, uses a person's own white blood cells to help activate the immune system to fight cancer. Nearly 30 percent of people in the ongoing trial have survived for at least three years after they enrolled in the study.
