The sensors use activation of immune cells by highly specific antigens – signatures of bacteria, viruses or cancer cells – as the detector. When T -cells are activated, they produce acid and produce a tiny stream in the nanowire electronics, signaling the presence of a specific antigen. The system can detect as little as 200 activated cells.
Ire disease detectors by Yale researchersYale nanowire nanowire sensors with simple microprocessor electronics coupled to both linked to both sensitive and specific enough point-of-care detection of disease can be used for a report in Nano Letters. Continue reading

The company’s interpretation of the Hatch-Waxman, does not change labeling for the drug is used to, the judge said. – AstraZeneca interpretation would have to draw a perverse incentive for pharmaceutical companies, their presentation, the safety-critical data to the FDA to competition is determined by generics beyond the periods creating acceptable Congress Bar, Howell wrote in his ruling. While Congress was no doubt concerned that pharmaceutical companies continue incentives for research and development important new important new drugs, Congress does not seem to keep the intention for this manufacturer exclusivity in eternity.
This is the problem. An alarming number of large pharmaceutical companies are trying to keep on their patented products as long as possible – and in more cases, more than allowed – because they do not want cheaper less expensive options on the market. Continue reading

SummaryMost of matter that we know in everyday life comes in three states. Solid, liquid or gaseous But much more of the matter in the universe exists in a fourth state known as plasma. Gaseous plasmas are collections of electrically charged particles, such as electrons and protons. Stars are composed primarily of hot plasmas. On Earth, plasmas are formed in lightning strikes and produce light in fluorescent tubes. They are used to model in computer chips and other electronic enroll, and are at the heart of the most promising nuclear fusion devices that may someday lead to an abundance of cheap, clean and safe power sources.
The result is a virtually uniform, 100 million electron volts, electron pile just 10 femtoseconds . Should fulfill the device applications in research and medicine, to leave the accelerators to produce pulses of X-ray and infrared radiation, including high-resolution imaging and treatment for certain types of cancer. . From the atmosphere. Leads to new joining technology.. Compact particle for science and medicineNew techniques for accelerating electrons produce targeted, energetically uniform beams in compact devices, which is ideal for numerous scientific and medical applications Plasma Sciences Expo open to the public.
