Stroke Care: Randomized Penumbra 3-D Trial of Next Generation Stent Retriever Meets Primary Endpoints

July 27, 2016 — The Penumbra 3D Trial successfully met the primary trial endpoints, demonstrating non-inferiority in both safety and efficacy of the company's next-generation stent retriever, Penumbra 3D ... read more

Better Defining the Signals Left by as-Yet-Undefined Dark Matter at the LHC

July 26, 2016 — Physicists still don't exactly know what dark matter is. Indeed, they can only see its effect in the form of gravity. Now, the high energy physics community has developed a set of simplified ... read more

Asymmetrical Magnetic Microbeads Transform Into Micro-Robots

July 26, 2016 — Janus particles are asymmetrical microscopic spheres with both a magnetic and a non-magnetic half. A new study reveals that the dynamics of such assemblies can be predicted by modelling the ... read more

July 25, 2016 — Researchers have developed the first placenta-on-a-chip that can fully model the transport of nutrients across the placental barrier. The flash-drive-sized device contains two layers of human cells ... read more

Bio-Engineered Molecule Shows Promise for Quick Control of Bleeding

July 25, 2016 — Hematology researchers have developed a novel genetically engineered clotting factor that can control bleeding in animal models. If the factor proves effective in humans, it may provide a ... read more

Self-Healing Textiles Not Only Repair Themselves, but Can Neutralize Chemicals

July 25, 2016 — Someday, chemically protective suits made of fabric coated in self-healing, thin films may prevent farmers from exposure to organophosphate pesticides, soldiers from chemical or biological attacks in ... read more
