Scientists are Working on Making Drugs More Biodegradable

BOC Sciences-Wild animals were found carrying drug resistance though they are living in areas where few human activities are existing. This finding makes scientists think about how to prevent the situation from deteriorating and protect water from being polluted furtherly. From the previous blog... Read More

New SARS-like virus can jump directly from bats to humans, no treatment available

Researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have discovered a new bat SARS-like virus that can jump directly from its bat hosts to humans without mutation. However, researchers point out that if the SARS-like virus did jump, it is still unclear whether it could spread from h... Read More

MGH team broadens utility of more compact CRISPR-Cas9 by increasing its targeting range

A team of Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) investigators has shown that a method they developed to improve the usefulness and precision of the most common form of the gene-editing tools CRISPR-Cas9 RNA-guided nucleases can be applied to Cas9 enzymes from other bacterial sources. In a paper r... Read More

Latest technology could help curb repeat Ebola crisis, experts say

Recent developments in surveillance technology could enable a swifter, more effective response to potentially deadly outbreaks of disease, a study has found. Read More

A new approach to predict evolution of influenza viruses can enhance vaccine efficacy

New results from a study performed at the University of Helsinki suggest that genomic information from circulating influenza viruses can help in producing more efficient seasonal vaccines. The researchers were able to develop a simple approach for reliable real-time tracking and prediction of vi... Read More

CRISPR/Cas9 used for rapid functional study of cancer-causing genes

In a novel use of the CRISPR/Cas9 system, which can be deployed to switch genes off, researchers from Germany, the UK and Spain have developed a multiplexed screening approach to study and model cancer development in mice. The scientists mutated genes in the adult mouse liver uncovering their ca... Read More

Ebola medical team develops guidelines for treating infected children

When the Ebola virus outbreak erupted in West Africa in 2014, children infected with the virus -- particularly those under age 5 -- faced overwhelming challenges. Not only was there a high death rate among young children infected with the disease, they often were isolated from their families, le... Read More

Vitamin C can be Helpful in Improving Blood Vessel Constriction

BOC Sciences-Latest study on vitamin C shows that it can play a positive role in improving blood vessel constriction with almost equal effect as walking. In the study, the exercise of a protein which is the main factor of blood vessel constriction was compared with the effect of vitamin C on bl... Read More
