Drop in temperature may explain the increase in dry eye suffering

Springtime may be just what the doctor orders for individuals suffering from dry eye condition, a disorder resulting from insufficient tear production or altered tear film composition. According to a study published in Investigative Ophthalmology & ...

Research provides new findings on drug delivery with nanoparticles

Researchers have over time been able to show that medicine designed at nanoscale offers unprecedented opportunities for targeted treatment of serious diseases such as cancer. However, now research also shows that the body's immune system plays a sig...

Scientists reveal new insights into tendon injury

Scientists have discovered how tendons -- the fibrous tissue that connects muscle to bone -- become damaged through injury or the ageing process in what could lead to new treatments for people with tendon problems. The University of Manchester t...

Scientists find increase in microearthquakes after Chilean quake

By studying seismographs from the earthquake that hit Chile last February, earth scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology have found a statistically significant increase of microearthquakes in central California in the first few hours after...

New vaccine technology protects mice from hepatitis C virus

Immunology: Three percent of the world's population is currently infected by hepatitis C. The virus hides in the liver and can cause cirrhosis and liver cancer, and it's the most frequent cause of liver transplants in Denmark. Since the virus mutate...

3-D nanoparticle in atomic resolution

In chemical terms, nanoparticles have different properties from their «big brothers and sisters»: they have a large surface area in relation to their tiny mass and at the same time a small number of atoms. This can produce quantum effects that lea...

A new high-resolution method for imaging below the skin using a...

University of Rochester optics professor Jannick Rolland has developed an optical technology that provides unprecedented images under the skin's surface. The aim of the technology is to detect and examine skin lesions to determine whether they a...

UCLA Engineering advance with new nanomaterials good news for next-generation electronic...

In recent years, topological insulators have become one of the hottest topics in physics. These new materials act as both insulators and conductors, with their interior preventing the flow of electrical currents while their edges or surfaces allow t...

NASA infrared satellite data gives System 96S a fair shot at...

A low pressure area located a couple of hundred miles northwest of Western Australia appears in a better position for development into a tropical cyclone according to infrared NASA satellite imagery. Infrared imagery from NASA's Aqua satellite...
