Goodbye Surgery – Scientists Made Eye Drops That Dissolve Cataracts

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

American researchers have recently published a study in the scientific journal Nature, showing promising results using steroid eye drops for shrinking down and dissolving cataracts.

At the moment cataracts is the leading cause of blindness, and can only be removed through surgery. The surgical procedure, while simple and safe, is unpleasant for the patient and often prohibitively expensive.

A ccording to the Fred Hollows Foundation, approximately 32.4 million people around the world are blind, with more than half of the cases being caused by cataracts. In the United States alone, nearly 22 million Americans who are over age 40 have cataracts, according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology.

Neanderthals and modern humans diverged at least 800,000 years ago

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Substantially earlier than indicated by most DNA-based estimates, according to new research by a UCL academic.

The research, published in Science Advances, analysed dental evolutionary rates across different , focusing on early Neanderthals. It shows that the of hominins from Sima de los Huesos, Spain—ancestors of the Neanderthals—diverged from the modern lineage earlier than previously assumed.

Sima de los Huesos is a cave site in Atapuerca Mountains, Spain, where archaeologists have recovered fossils of almost 30 people. Previous studies date the site to around 430,000 years ago (Middle Pleistocene), making it one of the oldest and largest collections of human remains discovered to date.

Alternative Cancer Treatments Brought to Legitimacy at Scientific Forum in San Diego

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, innovation

The world recently acknowledged the power of alternative cancer treatments by awarding the 2018 Nobel Prize in Medicine to Dr. James P. Allison and Dr. Tasuku Honjo for their work in immunotherapy. More specifically on checkpoint inhibitor therapies.

Until recently many in the scientific community had dismissed immunotherapy as a viable cancer treatment. Nevertheless, Allison and Honjo persevered and their breakthrough has allowed for the classification of new drugs and treatments that may help patients have run out of options.

Ironically, while many in the mainstream are barely learning of immunotherapy, a hospital in Mexico, CHIPSA Hospital, has been working with these treatments for over 38 year and often under fire from public ridicule that their treatments are strange and ineffective.

NASA, Northrop Grumman finish testing cislunar habitat mockup

Posted by in categories: habitats, health, robotics/AI, space travel

As Northrop Grumman’s NG-11 Cygnus spacecraft flew high above in low Earth orbit, NASA astronauts at the Johnson Space Center recently completed testing and evaluation of the company’s Earth-based full-scale cislunar habitat mockup.

Designed to test the ergonomics, feature layout and functional compatibility with basic “day-in-the-life” astronaut tasks for potential long-term use as a part of the future Lunar Gateway in cislunar space, the habitat mockup necessarily incorporated all core elements that would eventually be needed by a four-person Orion crew: sleep stations, a galley, crew exercise equipment and of course accommodations for science, a robotics workstations and life support systems.
