A study analyzes the potential usefulness of a new treatment that combines the benefits of angioplasty balloons and drug-releasing stents, but may pose fewer risks.
Cattle feeders in the U.S. are coping with reduced herds and high corn costs in part by increasing their use of growth-inducing drugs designed to bulk up animals.
Doughnut-shaped droplets may provide scientists with a new approach for studying fundamental issues in physics, mathematics and materials.
Grapefruits have long been known for their health benefits, and the subtropical fruit may revolutionize how medical therapies like anti-cancer drugs are delivered to specific tumor cells.
A new analysis shows that the nation's land and water resources could likely support the growth of enough algae to produce up to 25 billion gallons of algae-based fuel a year.
The chemical in toothpaste that is responsible for the suds that you produce when brushing has an interesting effect on your mouth's taste receptors.
Engineers have developed a novel method for producing clean hydrogen, which could prove essential to weaning society off of fossil fuels and their environmental implications.
A nutritional supplement— produced from beef, oysters and soy— delays advancement of Parkinson's and Familial Dysautonomia.
Food industries are now turning meat leftovers into high-protein content ingredients for food supplements, or to be added to processed food, including ice cream.
A new study of proteins suggests that the number of unique pockets– sites where small molecule pharmaceutical compounds can bind to proteins– is surprisingly small, meaning drug side effects may be impossible to avoid.
Researchers have developed a graphene-based ink that is highly conductive and tolerant to bending, and they have used it to inkjet-print graphene patterns that could be used for extremely detailed, conductive electrodes.
Researchers have produced carbon fibers coated in carbon nanotubes without degrading the underlying fiber's strength.
Waterproof fabrics that whisk away sweat work like human skin, forming excess sweat into droplets that drain away by themselves.
Croatian researchers are training honeybees to find unexploded mines littering their country and the rest of the Balkans.
New sunscreen labels on store shelves are designed to make the products more effective and easier to use. But, many sunscreens continue to carry SPF ratings that some experts consider misleading and potentially dangerous.
Using a laser, scientists can now carry out detailed analysis of a spirit sample no bigger than a teardrop and can even confirm whether it is toxic or not.
A new study shows how complex biochemical transformations may have been possible under conditions that existed when life began on the early Earth.
Scientists have developed a new cell line that rapidly and accurately detects foot-and-mouth disease virus, which causes a highly contagious and economically devastating disease in cattle and other cloven-hoofed animals.
The World Health Organization says a yellow fever booster vaccination given 10 years after the initial shot isn't necessary.
A single injection of nanogel can maintain normal blood-sugar levels for an average of 10 days in mice with Type 1 diabetes.
With the hand of nature trained on a beaker of chemical fluid, the most delicate flower structures have been formed in a laboratory— and not at the scale of inches, but microns.
Scientists have discovered ancient pockets of water, which have been isolated deep underground for billions of years and contain abundant chemicals known to support life.
Carbon aerogels can absorb organic solvents and oils up to 106 to 312 times its own weight because of its high porosity and hydrophobility. This makes it an ideal candidate for cleaning up oil spills.
Scientists have reported the development of an “exceptionally” effective new retardant that works in two ways and appears to be safer and more environmentally friendly.
