Einstein Relativity Tehory Comes Handy to Find Dwarf Star’s Mass

Looks can be deceiving. In this Hubble Space Telescope image, the white dwarf star Stein 2051B and the smaller star below it appear to be close neighbors. The stars, however, reside far away from each other. Stein 2051B is 17 light-years from Earth; the other star is about 5,000 light-years away. Stein 2051B is named for its discoverer, Dutch Roman Catholic priest and astronomer Johan Stein.CREDIT: NASA, ESA, and K. Sahu (STScI)

  Astronomers have used the sharp vision of NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope to repeat a century-old test of Einstein’s general theory of relativity. The Hubble team measured the mass of a white dwarf, the burned-out remnant of a normal star, by seeing how much it deflects the light from a background star. This observation represents the first time Hubble has ...

New Alternative to Treat Cancer Discovered

Researchers at the Cancer Research Center (CRC) in Columbia have discovered that they can use a genetically modified strain of Salmonella bacteria to treat or kill cancer cells. Robert Kazmierczak, a postdoctoral fellow in biological sciences at MU, recently published a paper showing that weekly injections of a particular Salmonella strain into genetically engineered mice with prostate cancer reduced the ...

Inducing Cell Suicide, New Method Kills Cancer cells in 2 Hours

In a new method that can revolutionize the cancer treatment, University of Texas researcher has developed a injectible chemical compound which can brighten the cancerous cells and beaming light they can be made acidic and commit suicide with results up to 95%. Matthew Gdovin, Associate Professor at University of Texas at San Antonio, has developed the method to inject nitrobenzaldehyde ...

Method Developed to Predict Lifespan Before Cancer Death

People with cancer are often told by their doctors approximately how long they could live, and how well they will respond to treatments, but a new method developed by UCLA can help to predict lifespan before cancer death accurately. The new method developed could eventually lead to a way to do just that, using data about patients’ genetic sequences to produce ...

How did Universe Begin? New Method to Know it Unveiled

  How did the universe begin? And what came before the Big Bang? Cosmologists have asked these questions ever since discovering that our universe is expanding. The answers aren’t easy to determine. The beginning of the cosmos is cloaked and hidden from the view of our most powerful telescopes. Yet observations we make today can give clues to the universe’s ...

Indian-origin Expert Finds Salt Filtering to Make Seawater Drinkable

Narayana Aluru, a University of Illinois professor of mechanical science and engineering has succeeded to find an energy-efficient material with nanopores to filter salt from sea water and revolutionize lifestyle on earth and end the water crisis faced on earth currently. Seemingly a rebuttal to poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s lament, “Water, water, every where, not a drop to drink”, the ...

Mummification Prevalent in Bronze Age Britain: Study

Based on microscopic bone analysis of British skeletons, researchers said Britons too mummified their dead during the Bronze Age and they practised exotic, novel and bizarre funerary rituals, said archaeologists at the University of Sheffield. Dr Tom Booth analysed skeletons at several Bronze Age burial sites across the UK and a collaborative team from the University of Sheffield found that ...

Delivering Drug to Lungs Directly Now Possible: Researchers

In a new method, researchers have shown that lung-related diseases can be tackled by directly targeting to send micro volumes of drug into the lung. The new method helps to instill micro-litres of liquid drug, distributed as a thin film in the lung airway, and absorbed locally. “Our micro-volume liquid instillation approach will enable predictable drug concentrations at the target ...

Carrot-Based Nanofibres Useful for Helmets, Find Researchers

Imagine carrot waste fibers used in manufacturing helmets. A new multi-perspective application selection (MPAS) method developed at Empa has identifed the bio-degradable wster for industrial use from the ecological aspect whereby nanofibers made of carrot waste was found to useful in the production of motorcycle helmets or side walls for motorhomes in the future. In order to clarify a new ...

New Culture Method May Lead to Personalised Cancer Treatment

Two Indian-origin researchers have developed a way to grow cancer cells in the laboratory that mimics the environment inside the body. This is expected to lead to the personalised treatment for people who are suffering from cancer. The researchers said that the new capture and culture method provides a reliable way to get usable numbers of circulating tumour cells from ...

New Non-Invasive MRI Scan to Detect Alzheimer’s Early Developed

Scientists have developed a new non-invasive MRI-based scanning method to detect Alzheimer’s disease in its early stages, that was not possible in the traditional imaging method, raising hope that drug makers can now focus on treating the disease at its early stage. The new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology can detect the amyloid beta brain toxins responsible for onset of the disease as ...

Protein Histone H3-3 Found To Have Altered, Stopped Cancer Cells’ Growth, Reveals Study

A protein called histone H3-3 plays significant role in capping the growth of cancerous cells, found researchers from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. They found during their experients that some changes to the protein structure altered the cancerous genes effectively stemming the cancer cell growth. Led by Emily Bernstein of Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, ...

New method to sequence genomes of the Ebola,makes surveillance quicker

A new cost-effective method to sequence genomes of the Ebola virus may eventually lead to quicker surveillance of the disease and effectively keep track of the outbreak even with limited resources. “Since the cost of preparation and sequencing is relatively low, and samples are the most precious commodity, our approach provides a great initial strategy for sequencing viral samples,” said ...

New Method to Make Drugs to Treat Cancer, Malaria

Scientists have developed a revolutionary new way to manufacture natural chemicals and used it to assemble a scarce anti-inflammatory drug with potential to treat cancer and malaria, a news release by the Australian National University (ANU) said on Tuesday. The breakthrough could lead to new and cheaper ways to produce rare drugs in large quantities. “We took small molecules and ...

Reason for Old Age Found, Solution Possible Soon: Scientists

The scientists at Arizona State University have found a rare atomic level change at the enzyme telomerase that holds secrets as to how we grow old. The telomerase is a naturally occurring enzyme that maintains telomeres and prevents them from shortening during cell division. Telomeres are found at the ends of human chromosomes and are stretches of DNA which protect ...
