Wearable technology providing continuous monitoring of oxygen saturation levels for the detection of anaphylactic shock.
A majority of breast cancer patients develop metastases in their bone, and the bone microenvironment plays a large role in recruiting tumor cells from the breast.
The Effect of Microplastic Pollution on Symbiotic Bacteria within the Marine Sponge, Halichondria panicea
This research looks at the effect microplastic pollution can have on the viability of symbiotic bacteria within the main sponge, Hali-chondria panicea, to understand if future pharmaceutical discoveries derived from preexisting antibacterial compounds may be limited.
The prototype designed is a stereoscopic camera system utilizing cheap yet effective materials such as the Raspberry Pi and its respective camera modules, along with custom 3D printed adapters.
Liposome-based drug delivery to the brain is a well-established and an effective approach for delivering neuroprotectants across the BBB in ischemic stroke.
This paper analyzes correlations between the presence of allergies and various childhood and adult lifestyle factors of 70 participants.
We find inhibition of survivin using YM155 to be more potent (lower-dose requirements) than the traditional, platinum-based chemo-therapy carboplatin with the same maximal efficacy (loss of cell-viability) when treating small cell lung cancer cells in vitro.
Despite replicating in the cytoplasm, coronaviruses employ several mechanisms surrounding the nucleus to promote proliferation.
Adipose Tissue Macrophage Transcriptome Suggests Trained Innate Immunity Formation in Response to Weight Cycling
Single cell sequencing suggests evidence of trained innate immunity in adipose tissue macrophages from weight cycled mice.
The Design and Modification of an Innovative Loofah Sponge Device for the Removal of Aquatic Microplastics
A device consisting of a loofah vessel with hair inside is used to effectively remove microplastics from water.
This study used deep neural networks to remove dark region artifacts in order to create clearer ultrasound images.
