"Our results show that it could be possible to regrow insulin-producing cells in the GI tracts of our pediatric and adult patients," Dr. Accili says. "Nobody would have
Diminishing sea ice in the Arctic could be a boon for international trade — both for heavy ships using the Northwest Passage, and now for speedier telecommunications via new fiber-optic cables.
he bicarbonate maple syrup cancer treatment is a very significant cancer treatment every cancer patient should be familiar with and it can easily be combined with other safe and effective natural treatments.
Advances in fuel-cell technology have been stymied by the inadequacy of metals studied as catalysts. The drawback to platinum, other than cost, is that it absorbs carbon monoxide in reactions involving fuel cells powered by organic materials like
We knew if PXR played similar protective roles in blood vessels to those in the liver, it could protect the vessels from damage caused by harmful substances in the blood." The researchers used human tissue and blood vessel cells in culture and fo
A new world speed record for the fastest 3D-printed nano-objects has been claimed by researchers in Austria.
“It’s safe, it’s smooth, it’s clean, it’s wheelchair accessible, it’s a great tourist attraction — we love it,” said Judith Berdy, president of the Roosevelt Island Historical Society. Forty years later, the iconic red tram remains one of only two tr
A group of South Korean and Russian scientists are planning to bring the woolly mammoth back to life, 10,000 years after the species went extinct. Using tissue samples from the specimens recovered in Siberia after global warming thawed the region's p
In his new study, Siliciano showed that infected T cells survived after latent virus was reactivated, and were only killed off when other immune system T cells were primed
Reactors must be able to handle the worst if we hope to prevent a repeat of last year's meltdowns.
An international team of researchers from the University of New South Wales, the University of Nevada, and Georgia Tech have propsed a new kind of atomic timekeeper that wouldn’t lose or gain 1/20th of a second in 14 billion years
The high data loads of the future--and even the present--require that optical communications platforms continue to get faster, leaner, and cheaper.
Work has been completed on the most detailed map to date of the wreckage of the legendary Titanic ocean liner.
at allows them to verify that they've actually managed to release one, and only one, photon, a condition essential to the success of the experiment, a second de- vice "slices" this particle in two. [surely photon is meant here] This splitting a
So, high salt intake increases acidity in the body, which can accelerate bone loss. The European Space Agency's, or ESA's, recent SOdium LOad in microgravity, or SOLO, study zoomed in on this question. Nine crew members, including ESA's Frank
Scientists found a pair of underwater environments where previously unknown hybrid creatures existed.
The reaction: Meet "the ultimate superweapon," says David Woods at Manolith. The railgun is already deadly with these test projectiles — basically non-aerodynamic hunks of metal — and once the railgun starts using real ammo, "it could revolutioniz
Starve a tumour of its blood supply to kill it: That’s the long-held and widely accepted theory in cancer treatment. But what if you instead fed that tumour and let it grow? Dr. Pickering’s theory is that if you increase the blood supply to the tumo
With the explosion of wireless devices during the last decade, radio engineers have been increasingly concerned that soon the world will run out of bandwith. Mobile phones and handheld devices like PDAs, Android, and iPads, not to mention notepads, n
The findings offer important new insight into the brain and raise the possibility that marijuana's benefits for the treatment of pain, seizures and other ailments might some day be attained without hurting memory,
Physicists had already seen such differences - known as called "CP violation". But these known differences are much too small to explain why the Universe appears to prefer matter over anti-matter.
"Those trees were covered in little branches which sprung out in all directions and made a sort of thicket on the floor of the forest," Berry said. "That was a big surprise." The researchers also found a fragment of a third type of tree, lycop
A worldwide manhunt kicks off at the end of March — a search across America and Europe for five fugitives, identifiable only by their mugshots. The successful team of trackers not only gets a $5,000 bounty from the U.S. State Department.
A piece of the future internet has surfaced in a lab in Japan: a memory chip that stores bits of light
The battery buffer EV charger, manufactured and installed by Kanematsu, includes a battery pack that allows EV drivers to charge up in 30 minutes or less with minimal impact to the grid and their wallet.
Hackers seized control of networks at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory last November, gaining the ability to install malware, delete or steal sensitive data, and hijack the accounts of users in order to gain their privileged access
Technology has yet to fundamentally change how we think about money. As the mobile Internet begins to take financial control out of the hands of bank tellers and regulators, innovators are connecting us to our money in new ways.
If Envia can overcome some key problems, its technology could cut the cost of electric-car batteries in half.
Instead of building super-strong yet flexible structures to withstand earthquakes, what if you built your house to levitate on cushion of air? This is already being employed in Japan, a little less than a year after the massive earthquake and tsunami
