pace with today’s rapidly developing nanotechnology market or engender consumer and investor confidence in emerging products.” Just released, this is the first report from the Food and Drug Administration’s Nanotechnology Task Force about the agency...
Longer treatment benefits sleep apnea patients
... works by blowing just enough air into the nose to keep
the patient's throat open. Because they often find the CPAP device cumbersome, many patients do not use it consistently or for long enough periods while sleeping. In the current study, for example, patients used CPAP on average about 5 hours a n...

the visual image stable. The basic hypothesis of the project was that the organ of balance -- which helps stabilize an animal's gaze and coordinate its movements as it travels through the environment -- should be irrevocably linked to the type o...
Study identifies 5 genetic themes key to keeping stem cells in a primitive, flexible state
...ording to this research, stem cells are cells that keep
their DNA packaged in a flexible format, keep
cell division tightly controlled, prevent signals that might trigger death, repair DNA very effectiv...
How brain pacemakers erase diseased messages
... stimulation delivered at too slow a pace fails to keep
bad information at bay. Indeed, slower pulses can actually add to problematic bursts, they showed. The model's findings closely parallel the clinical responses of patients, who typically experience the greatest relief from symptoms when their devi...
Lessons from the orangutans: Upright walking may have begun in the trees

their legs straight while standing on bending bran..., but when humans run on springy surfaces, we also keep
our weight-bearing legs relatively straight, so this may have an energy-related advantage. "Our r...

the palladium(II) from going to a neighboring electrode a second reagent was added to the solution above the chip that destroyed the palladium(II) reagent. In this way, nothing happened at electrodes that were not being used. Reversing the polarit...
'Insulator' helps silence genes in dormant herpes virus
...tists have long puzzled over the mechanism used to keep
this small region of the genome going while nearby genes remain quiescent. Now, scientists at The Wistar Institute have discovered a molecular mechanism that keeps HSV-1 activation restricted to a single gene for months or even years. The research...
