Bacteria Acquire Resistance From Competitors

The frequent and sometimes careless use of antibiotics leads to an increasingly rapid spread of resistance. Hospitals are a particular hot spot for this. Patients not only introduce a wide variety of pathogens, which may already be resistant but also, due to the use of antibiotics to combat infections, hospitals

Diabetes New Insulin Sensitizers Discovered

A new study, led by researchers at Columbia University Medical Center, indicates that it may be possible to improve insulin sensitivity while avoiding these adverse effects. The findings were published online in Cell. Insulin, a hormone made in the pancreas, signals cells to grab glucose out of the bloodstream and use it

Novel Circuit Design Boosts Wearable Thermoelectric Generators

Because of their symmetrical fractal wiring patterns, the devices can be cut to the size needed to provide the voltage and power requirements for specific applications. The modular generators could be inkjet printed on flexible substrates, including fabric, and manufactured using inexpensive roll-to-roll techniques. "The attraction of thermoelectric generators is that

Diabetes Medicine Reduces Parkinson’s Risk

Researchers at the Department of Clinical Medicine at the University of Bergen (UiB) have discovered that medical treatment against diabetes reduces the risk of getting Parkinson´s disease by 35 per cent. "We have made an important discovery, which takes us a step further towards solving the Parkinson´s riddle," says researcher Charalampos
