es to power these tiny, robotic machines remains a major challenge, the researchers say.

The scientists describe a solution tiny beads, about 1/25,000 of an inch in diameter, made of plastic and magnetic materials. When exposed to a magnetic field, the particles spun like a gyroscope and could be easily directed to move though narrow channels of liquids inside a glass plate, the researchers say. The scientists could control the speed of the "microswimmers" by varying the strength of the magnetic field. MTS

ARTICLE #3 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Toward a long-sought saliva test for autism
Journal of Proteome Research

Researchers in Italy are reporting discovery of abnormal proteins in the saliva of autism patients that could eventually provide a clue for the molecular basis of this severe developmental disorder and could be used as a biomarker for a subgroup of patients with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Their study is in the January 2 issue of ACS' Journal of Proteome Research, a monthly publication.

Autism involves social withdrawal, impaired emotional responses and communication
