Chinese scientists have invented a hydrogel that can stop arterial bleeding, a most dangerous kind of bleeding to human health. The innovation has already been tested on animals.
The ocean is, and the habitat of the species unknown to modern science as well as the least explored place on our planet. The Smithsonian Institution biologists have recently discovered microscopic larvae from which new creatures - so far unknown to man - may be borne.
Scientists at Fluid Interfaces Group organization have created a sensor that collects data on biological composition of saliva. The device that is fixed to a patient’s cheek can completely replace blood tests.
In just a few years, scientists are hoping to achieve a breakthrough in diagnostics and treatment of oncological diseases. Modern technologies like artificial intelligence and VR are already finding widespread...
Space flights adversely affect astronauts’ health. Particularly affected are their muscles and bones, therefore astronauts have to undergo long courses of rehabilitation after space expeditions. However, ISS specialists have developed a method to make them considerably shorter.
Scientists from the University of Maryland have transported a human kidney using a drone, followed by successful transplantation into a critically ill patient. This is the first such case in history.
Modeling the one billion atoms that make up an entire gene of DNA is not easy, but scientists at the Los Alamos National Laboratory have done their best to do so. The model they designed will give an insight into the DNA functioning and help develop treatments for many diseases.
Artificial intelligence developed by scientists from the University of California, San Francisco, has learned to translate human lip movements into speech. What is surprising, is that it works, even if a person does not move his lips, but only thinks about it.
Highly allergic people know all too well that there are moments when an epinephrine injection is the only remedy against a dangerous attack. But it is impossible to permanently carry around a drug-filled syringe, so allergic people’s health is constantly under threat.
