IBM’s new macromolecule can act as Magic Bullet to destroy many Viruses e.g Zika, Ebola, Dengue

As one of medicine’s largest challenges, viral infections often escape vaccines due to their natural ability to mutate rapidly and develop drug resistance easily. Many viruses, such as Zika, Ebola and dengue fever, have grown into major global health epidemics with great human and economic toll. IBM Research and Singapore’s Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology … Continue reading “IBM’s new macromolecule can act as Magic Bullet to destroy many Viruses e.g Zika, Ebola, Dengue”

Johns Hopkins Scientist Programs Robot for “Soft Tissue” Surgery

Not even the surest surgeon’s hand is quite as steady and consistent as a robotic arm built of metal and plastic, programmed to perform the same motions over and over. So could it handle the slippery stuff of soft tissues during a surgery? Simon Leonard, a Johns Hopkins University computer scientist is part of a … Continue reading “Johns Hopkins Scientist Programs Robot for “Soft Tissue” Surgery”

MIT developed a new paper-based test for the Zika virus

A new paper-based test developed at MIT can diagnose Zika virus infection within a few hours. The test, which distinguishes Zika from the very similar dengue virus, can be stored at room temperature and read with a simple electronic reader, making it potentially practical for widespread use. An outbreak of the Zika virus that began … Continue reading “MIT developed a new paper-based test for the Zika virus”

Detergent Packet Dangers: Researchers urge to use Traditional Detergent instead of Packets

A new study found that exposure to laundry detergent packets is more dangerous to young children than exposure to other types of laundry and dishwasher detergent. In two years, i-e From January 2013 through December 2014 Poison Control Centers in the U.S. received 62,254 calls related to laundry and dishwasher detergent exposures among children younger … Continue reading “Detergent Packet Dangers: Researchers urge to use Traditional Detergent instead of Packets”
