Number Of Babies Born Prematurely Nears Historic Half Million Mark In U.S.

...of more than 30 percent since the government began tracking premature births in 1981. The prematurity rate was 9.4 in 1981; it has increased every year since then except for slight dips in 1992 and 2000. "Prematurity is the number one killer of newborns. We see from these latest statistics that the prematur...

It may also help to analyze a throat culture swab, to tell if someone has an illness like strep throat. "We hope to see this technique commercialized, because it is very rapid...

Fundamental discovery -- Bone fracture

...sciplinary group of scientists spent several years tracking down where the glue was located in bone, and how it worked. "Before this research, it was well known that the mechanical properties of bone depended on mineral particles and on collagen fibrils," said Hansma. "The picture of bone was that it consist...

Study shows humans have ability to track odors, much like bloodhounds

Though humans may never match the tracking ability of dogs, we apparently have the ability to sniff out and locate odors, according to a new study by scientists from the University of California, Berkeley. Student volunteers presented with odors to one nostril or the other could reliably dis...
