Revolutionary Therapeutic Dental Adhesives With the Aptitude to Remineralize the Resin-Dentine Bonding Interface Through Biomimetic Processes

May 25, 2015 — Dental health researchers report that clinical minimally invasive treatments require the elimination of dental caries-infected tissues in order to stop the progression of bacteria to the pulpal ... read more

36-Percent Increase in Pediatric Patients Treated With Proton Therapy, New Survey Shows

May 23, 2015 — Results from an American survey indicate a steady increase in the number of pediatric patients who are being treated with proton radiation therapy for cancerous and non-cancerous tumors. Based on a ... read more

Enhancing Knowledge Crucial to Improving Energy-Saving Behaviors, Study Shows

May 22, 2015 — Increasing public knowledge and understanding about energy issues is vital if improved energy-saving behaviors are to be encouraged among individuals and organizations, a study ... read more

May 21, 2015 — Scientists for the first time have precisely measured a protein's natural "knee-jerk" reaction to the breaking of a chemical bond -- a quaking motion that propagated through the ... read more

May 21, 2015 — Researchers have determined that a tunnel bomb explosion by Syrian rebels was less than 60 tons as claimed by sources. Using seismic stations in Turkey, the scientists created a method to determine ... read more

May 21, 2015 — A new chemical technology uses cancer cells' own protein-degrading machinery to destroy, rather than merely inhibit, cancer proteins. Researchers developed the strategy as a way to develop ... read more

May 21, 2015 — Extremely small batteries built inside nanopores show that properly scaled structures can use the full theoretical capacity of the charge storage material. The batteries are part of assessing the ... read more

May 21, 2015 — A highly sensitive imaging technique for non-invasive screening of lymph nodes for metastatic cancer has been developed by researchers. The new imaging technique -- so far tested in mice -- offers a ... read more

May 19, 2015 — Researchers have made a new protein detection platform using low-cost plastic and paper substrates. Their work could help reduce the cost and improve the accuracy of infectious disease diagnosis, ... read more

Non-Invasive Tool for Diagnosing Cancer

May 19, 2015 — An ultrasensitive method to detect micro-RNAs, tiny molecules that can indicate the presence of tumors, has been developed by researchers. They are applying the technology toward a non-invasive ... read more

May 21, 2015 — Where do electronics go when they die? Most devices are laid to eternal rest in landfills. But what if they just dissolved away, or broke down to their molecular components so that the material could ... read more

fMRI: New Window Into the Brain

May 18, 2015 — Neuroscientists have made an important advance in studying the human brain with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). This imaging technique is used in research to investigate the ... read more

May 21, 2015 — Researchers created thin, flexible electronic devices that efficiently harvest the mechanical energy from natural motions of the human body. In addition to advances in materials processing to enable ... read more

May 21, 2015 — Researchers have developed a process to make a thermoset that can be reshaped and reused. The new plastic is a shape-memory polymer, so named because the material can “remember” its original ... read more

May 21, 2015 — Emplacement of carbon dioxide at the Bravo Dome gas field in New Mexico began more than 900,000 years earlier than previously estimated, according to scientists. The study documents the first field ... read more

Designing Microwave Devices from Scratch Using Computer Simulations

May 21, 2015 — For decades, the fundamental design of microwave devices, such as antennas for mobile communication and waveguides used in radars, has essentially relied on the inventiveness of a professional ... read more

May 21, 2015 — Scientists have devised a way of directly detecting and visualizing biomolecules and their changing association states in solution by measuring their size and charge characteristics while confined in ... read more

Targeted, High-Dose Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy Appears to Benefit Some Patients With Pancreatic Cancer

May 18, 2015 — High-dose radiation treatment, called stereotactic body radiotherapy, appears to be safe and as effective as standard radiation treatment for certain patients with pancreatic cancer whose tumors are ... read more

May 21, 2015 — Most people see defects as flaws. A few researchers, however, see them as opportunities. Twin boundary defects may present an opportunity to improve lithium-ion ... read more

Simulations Predict Flat Liquid

May 21, 2015 — Computer simulations have predicted a new phase of matter: atomically thin two-dimensional ... read more
