Chemical Thermometers Can Now Measure Temperature Even At Nanometeric Scale

08-Aug-2020 | Market Research Store
It sounds so convenient to even think about having electronic components in a miniaturized form. In addition to this, increase in the integration density is likely to help surge heat flows and this is anticipated to trigger the issue of overheating. However, the major issue is that the measuring of such nanometric events using conventional methods, such as infrared thermography, is difficult as values below micrometer cannot be measured. Recently, a research team from the Laboratory for Analys

Researchers Develop A New Nano Drug To Treat Triple Negative Breast Cancer

08-Aug-2020 | Market Research Store
The University of Arkansas researchers have created a novel nano drug candidate that possesses the ability to destroy the triple negative breast cancer cells. In the world, triple negative breast cancer is found to be one of the lethal and aggressive types of breast cancer. Most of the deaths in women occur due to this type of breast cancer. However, the researchers hope that targeting these breast cancer cells directly will help inhibit any toxic or adverse effects of chemotherapy. This study

New research has shown researchers to test the effect of oxytocin on the brain tissue in the laboratory. This hormone was found to reverse the effect of a toxic protein linked with Alzheimers disease on brain cells. Oxytocin was found to restore the cells plasticity which is a process necessary for memory and learning. Hypothalamus is where the hormone oxytocin originates and it is found to play an important role in breastfeeding, childbirth, and social bonding. Furthermore, this hormone is fo

Germans Develop Motorized Spermbots To Solve Male Infertility Issues

31-Jul-2020 | Market Research Store
A group of German researchers have developed tiny robots that can help sperm speed up its mobility as it is one of the common causes of infertility in men. The researchers are currently working toward testing their lab work inside the human body. This new study could be the biggest breakthrough for couples struggling to start a family. The spermbots are tiny metal helixes that can easily wrap around the tail of single sperm and help it move faster toward the egg. These spermbots use magnetic f
