Novel computer model supports cancer therapy

Researchers from the Life Sciences Research Unit (LSRU) of the University of Luxembourg have developed a computer model that simulates the metabolism of cancer cells. They used the programme to investigate how combinations of drugs could be used more effectively to stop tumour growth. The biologists have now published their…

Novel device opens new doors for Parkinson’s disease diagnostics

Currently, there are no disease-modifying therapies for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease; however, one potential strategy for treatment is to prevent α-synuclein aggregation. As a first step, researchers at Osaka University have developed a device that can assess the degree of α-synuclein aggregation in the brain. α-Synuclein is a major…

Novel E-Bandage helps wounds to heal faster

Since the 1960s, we know that electrical Stimulation can contribute to the healing of skin wounds. Researchers from China and the USA have now developed a flexible electric Bandage, the skin movement in a therapeutic electric field converts. It reduces the wound healing time required dramatically.
