Single-Use Bioreactors Market will Likely Reach a Value of US$ 1.55 Bn by the End of 2026

Manufacturing advantages of multi-drug facilities continue to influence pharmaceutical companies towards meeting the growing demands by using the same facility to produce different drugs. In such facilities, single-use bioreactors are essential commodities that provide flexibility in the production of multiple drugs. By consuming minimum costs and saving time, single-use bioreactors can maintain the quality of drug production and eliminate the downtime caused by line clearance and cleaning validation. Their role

Helped Create World’s First Genetically Altered Babies - Chinese Scientist

A scientist, Dr He Jiankui, from China claims to have helped make the world’s first genetically-edited humans – twin girls whose DNA he claims to have altered during fertility treatments of the parents. According to Dr He, the DNA of the twin girls was altered by him with using a powerful new gene editing tool. He claims that the girls, born a few weeks ago, are resistant to the HIV

20% Rise in Insulin Use by 2030, Study Says

The number of insulin expected to adequately treat type 2 diabetes will grow by over 20% worldwide throughout the following 12 years, yet without real upgrades in access, insulin will be past the scope of around half of the 79 million people with type 2 diabetes who will require it in 2030, as indicated by a study published in The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinologyjournal. The discoveries are of specific concern

Depression to be Major Cause of Atrial Fibrillation

Depression have a high risk of atrial fibrillation, as indicated by an investigation published by an European Society of Cardiology (ESC) diary, the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology. Medicines were not to be blamed of the high recurrence of atrial fibrillation in depressed individuals. The discoveries are accounted at the time of Global AF Aware Week. Morten Fenger-Grøn, author of the study senior analyst, Research Unit for General Practice, Aarhus University,

Scientists discovered a New Path to Cure Inflammatory and Immune Diseases

In a recent study performed at the University of Texas, the researchers have successfully discovered a new way to the regulation of immune response and further cure some of the inflammatory diseases related to nervous system. The lead professor at the University further explained by saying that it is mandatory to know what activates the inflammatory reaction to bacterial infection in order to alter the immune response. He also stated

Extracellular Matrix Genes to Predict Immunotherapy Success in Cancer

In a recent study by researchers at Princesses Marget Cancer Centre, they developed genes signature biomarker that can indicate whether a patient is likely to respond to immune therapy or not. One of the researchers at the center stated that the gene signature discovered is related the body’s molecular network known as the extracellular matrix that not only supports the cells physically but also constructs them. He further added that

Epithelial Sheets show Superelasticity to withstand 3D Deformations

Skin has generated considerable interest among researchers for their elastic properties. The properties are attributed largely to the presence of tensions in cells. Cytoskeletal filaments, the key constituent of all cells across all organisms, are what are responsible for causing and resisting tension and also give the cells their shape. It has been known for years that cells exhibit small deformations when impacted by force, and returns to the original

Team of Scientists to Discover Critical Cancer Immunity Genes Using an Innovative Technique

A group of scientists from the Mount Sinai have recently made a development regarding a novel technology, which is used for simultaneously studying the several functions of the hundreds of genes that has a resolution reaching the single level of cell. This technology completely depends on a barcoding approach and making use of a novel protein that has been described in a research paper, which has been recently published in

Researchers Discover Regenerative Potential of Bioelectronic Medicine

Researchers from Washington University School of Medicine and Northwestern University have discovered a biodegradable medicine that is implantable and has the potential to improve the damaged nerve. The biodegradable wireless device has the ability to speed nerve revival. The scientists and the engineer from neurosurgeon from Washington University demonstrated that a device emitting continuous nerve impulses of electricity to the peripheral nerves in rats after they underwent a surgery for

Researchers observe Chewing Gum can be Vitamins Supplements

Around 15 percent of the variety of chewing product are sold with the promise of delivering health enhancing supplements to its consumers. Scientists from Penn State, a public research university based in Pennsylvania, studied whether chewing gums supplemented with vitamins were effective at delivering the vitamins to our body. The overall study demonstrated that gum can be effective system for providing some vitamins to our body. The researchers closely examined
