Helicopter flight trials for EGNOS

...ddition, a steeper descent angle reduces the noise generated by the rotor blades as the craft nears the ground. The implementation of instrument approaches for HEMS operations will allow the emergency services to continue their operations in weather conditions that would otherwise ground their helicopters. ...

Physician-researchers often less successful in obtaining NIH funding

...th (NIH) research and training awards in the 1970s generated concerns that physician clinical investigators would become an 'endangered species' if trends continued unaltered," the authors write. There has been no comprehensive analysis over a long period of the outcomes for first-time investigators with an M....

Research shows aerobic exercise helps maintain muscle in elderly

...sels open wide in response to the insulin increase generated by a meal, providing clear passage for muscle-making materials. In elderly people, however, this process, known as "vasodilation," is much less pronounced. "We thought, let's see what happens if we use aerobic exercise, one of the interventions tha...

New system for reporting toxicity burden of cancer treatment

... simply overwhelmed by the amount of toxicity data generated in cancer treatment programs. Thus, a new way to look at risk that is more relevant to oncology is needed." Despite being in the early stages of development, TAME has managed to identify differences of up to 500% in acute toxicity burden between ce...

Human antibodies protect mice from avian flu
