Scientists create dual-modality microbeads to improve identification of disease biomarkers

...anoparticles allows the use of a magnetic field to attract and easily remove the beads from a liquid sample. "These nanoparticles enter the pores of the microbeads so quickly and so completely -- essentially more than 99 percent of the nanoparticles go into the pores of the beads," explained Shuming Nie, ...

Magnetic system could be key to surgery without scars

...tem uses a stack of magnets outside the abdomen to attract other magnets attached to laparoscopic instruments inside the abdomen. Surgeons can then move the outside magnets to position an internal camera at the best spot for seeing or to move a retractor or other surgical instrument. Once optimally positione...

Blocking immune cell action increases Alzheimer's-associated protein deposits

...ce CCR2 is known to bind chemokines, proteins that attract immune cells and are elevated in brains affected by Alzheimer's, the receptor could be important for the movement of microglia to the site of amyloid-beta deposits. To test that possibility, the investigators used a mouse model of Alzheimer's diseas...

Researchers link ocean organisms with increased cloud cover and potential climate change
