Stanford cooling tool may improve performance of athletes, soldiers

...s a glove, much like a bicycling glove, that won't impede fine motor control. We also want to incorporate it into [a] boot in a way that won't impede foot performance. With such devices, you could send a soldier in a chemical protective overgarment o...

Scientists reveal molecular secrets of the malaria parasite

...re identifying new targets for vaccines that would impede the parasite during stages when it is particularly vulnerable to intervention. "We hope this project will help vaccine researchers find the best targets against malaria," says scientist Neil Hall, the first author of the paper that appears in the Ja...

X-rays have become laser-like

...ons ripped off the atoms by the strong laser field impede the buildup of an intense wave from the faint "atomic" waves. The Vienna-Wrzburg-Munich team have overcome these problems by irradiating the atoms with the world's shortest high-intensity laser pulses, lasting merely 5 millionths of a billionth of...

Scientists find both damage and promise for renewal in devastated Iraqi marshlands

...nearest the Persian Gulf, that were high enough to impede return of marsh plant life upon reflooding. They also found abnormal buildups of selenium, a naturally occurring toxic metal. But their limited testing did not support earlier reports that the marshlands had been chemically polluted with toxic organi...

'Hobbit' fossil likely represents new branch on human family tree

... microcephalic patients, chromosomal abnormalities impede normal growth of the top of the skull and the brain. Scientists found few structural similarities between the brains of modern microcephalics and the Hobbit. "We still can't rule out secondary microcephaly, which can be caused by exposure to infectio...

Alcohol consumption disrupts breastfeeding hormones

...e hormonal milieu of lactation in a way that could impede successful breastfeeding." For centuries, breastfeeding women have been advised to drink alcohol as an aid to milk production and optimal lactation. Recent surveys indicate that 25% of women report being encouraged by their health professionals to dr...

"Microfabrication is emerging as one of the most significant trends in analytical chemistry instrumentation," Lazar said. "Microfluidic devices present unique opportunities for integration and multiplexing capabilities...

Study uncovers bacteria's worst enemy

...als. This suggests that actinide toxicity will not impede bioremediation using naturally occurring bacteria. "This study" said Neu, "is exciting because even though we've known for years that bacterial bioremediation can be a preferred method for cleaning up actinide contamination, we've never really known ...

Researchers find molecule that inhibits regrowth of spinal nerve cells

...e to figure out how to dissolve the glial scars or impede their formation," he said. "We also need to get mature neurons to be better at growing, similar to the way they do during embryonic development. And finally, we have to remove myelin-based inhibition. If and when we achieve those three things, then w...

Bacterial cooperation as a target for anti-infectious therapy

...nd certain drugs have been shown experimentally to impede this coordination. In a paper recently published in Ecology Letters, Andr and Godelle build a mathematical model showing that one of the most interesting advantages of these drugs is that the evolution of bacterial resistance would be orders of magni...

Flu virus reported to resist drug envisioned for pandemic

...x months. Tamiflu is delivered orally and works to impede the spread of the virus by binding to and inhibiting one of the surface enzymes the virus uses to exit infected cells of a host. Once inside a host cell, the virus commandeers the cell's reproductive machinery to make new infectious particles that go...

The dynamic personalities of proteins reveal key traits

...y would be a major step toward creating drugs that impede its virulence, without interfering with normal cellular function. Kern summed up: "The fundamental principal of life is that molecules constantly change over time that is the definition of dynamics."...

ECCO 13 explores issues in cancer patient management

Despite worldwide recognition of the problem, little currently is being done to treat patients effectively and in consequence many patients are denied proper management. Therefore, routine screening for emotional dist...

New research examines genetics of successful aging
