Immune Response to COVID-19 Strengthens Over Time – Important Implications for Vaccine Boosters

Study suggests people who have had COVID-19 benefit from vaccination, even if they’ve delayed it. Immunity from COVID-19 appears to gather strength with more time between vaccination and infection, a new laboratory study from researchers at Oregon Health & Science University suggests. The findings carry implications for vaccine recommendations as the pandemic transitions to an endemic [...]

Scientists Use Exotic DNA To Help Create “Climate-Proof” Crops

The incorporation of exotic DNA from wild relatives into wheat results in a remarkable yield increase of up to 50%, even in hot weather, surpassing elite lines without these genes. Amid a year of record-breaking temperatures, research from the Earlham Institute in Norwich and the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Centre (CIMMYT) provides much-needed [...]

Australia becomes first country to recognise psychedelics as medicines

Australia has become the first country to recognise psychedelics as medicines, after the Therapeutic Goods Administration took researchers by surprise and approved the psychedelic substances in magic mushrooms and MDMA for use by people with certain mental health conditions. MDMA and psilocybin, the active ingredient in magic mushrooms, will be considered schedule 8 drugs - [...]

Silver nanoparticles show promise in fighting antibiotic-resistant bacteria

In a new study, scientists with the University of Florida have found that a combination of silver nanoparticles and antibiotics is effective against antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The researchers hope to turn this discovery into viable treatment for some types of antibiotic-resistant infections. Antibiotic-resistant infections kill more than a million people globally each year. For centuries, [...]

Combating severe cancer with a new drug delivery system

Peritoneal cancer is difficult to treat and has a poor survival prognosis. But a new and effective nanomedicine delivery system is offering some hope. The company is called NaDeNo and is well underway with the development of a new cure for cancers that have spread to the peritoneal cavity. It is a spin-off from [...]

New Research Shows How Ketamine Acts As “Switch” in the Brain

According to a new study by researchers at Penn Medicine, ketamine, which is well-known as an anesthetic and is becoming increasingly popular as an antidepressant, dramatically reorganizes activity in the brain, almost as if a switch were turned on. The study, published in Nature Neuroscience, found that after administering ketamine, there were drastic changes in [...]

Supercharged T Cells: A New Way To Kill Pancreatic Cancer With Minimal Side Effects

A new immunotherapy releases cancer-killing cytokines only within the tumor. Researchers at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) have developed a new T cell-based immunotherapy that selectively targets cancer cells, producing a powerful anti-cancer cytokine specifically when it encounters tumors. This therapy effectively eliminated melanoma and pancreatic cancer in mice, with minimal side effects. This [...]

AI has designed bacteria-killing proteins from scratch – and they work

An AI was tasked with creating proteins with anti-microbial properties. Researchers then created a subset of the proteins and found some did the job. An AI has designed anti-microbial proteins that were then tested in real life and shown to work. The same approach could eventually be used to make new medicines. Proteins are [...]

Using nanoparticles, researchers can identify and deliver synergistic combinations of cancer drugs

Treating cancer with combinations of drugs can be more effective than using a single drug. However, figuring out the optimal combination of drugs, and making sure that all of the drugs reach the right place, can be challenging. To help address those challenges, MIT chemists have designed a bottlebrush-shaped nanoparticle that can be loaded [...]

Humanity May Reach Singularity Within Just 7 Years, Trend Shows

By one unique metric, we could approach technological singularity by the end of this decade, if not sooner. A translation company developed a metric, Time to Edit (TTE), to calculate the time it takes for professional human editors to fix AI-generated translations compared to human ones. This may help quantify the speed toward singularity. An AI that [...]
