The higher the viral load of the mother, the lower the transplacental IgG transfer ratio...
The researchers hope that their new discovery can be the foundation for new attempts to create drugs targeting neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease and neuropathy.
The results, reported in the journal Physical Review Letters, could be used to design new types of materials and quantum technology devices.
The findings could possibly be a treatment target.
It’s one of the most common childhood disorders, affecting about 5-7% of children. Over the past decades, debate on the appropriateness of diagnoses has grown in line with the rate of diagnoses.
Stanford biologists have built a model examining the relationship between physical traits and genetic ancestry in populations formed from the mixture of multiple founding groups.
Radiation can be life-saving for a child with a brain tumor. But the therapy can also cause damage to the brain that leaves deficits in cognitive function, including learning and memory challenges.
The way we move says a lot about the state of our brain. While normal motor behaviour points to a healthy brain function, deviations can indicate impairments owing to neurological diseases.
Over 40% of young children aged 3 or below with COVID-19 infection are often asymptomatic.
Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats to modern medicine. As resistance grows, it will become harder to treat common infections such as food poisoning or pneumonia, or even to perform minor surgeries.
This protein plays a key role in the mating process of flies.
Its efficacy was verified. Their results have been published in the journal Veterinary Microbiology.
Preeclampsia risk high in women with chronic hypertension at lower threshold.
They used an off-the-shelf acrylic ball, a single plastic optical fibre – a type of cable that carries a beam of light from one end to another - and computer chip-assisted motors
It can anticipate a person’s movement in the image and pan the cameras as if they were operated by a cameraperson.
The researchers say the resulting material shows a high mechanical strength, stability when holding liquids, and UV-light resistance.
Researchers at UNIGE have highlighted the key role of a protein called paxillin, which enables cells to perceive their environment and anchor at the right place with the help of cellular “crampons”.
The device allows doctors to treat epilepsy and record electrical activity from deep in the brain.
Excess sugar in the blood, the central feature of diabetes, can react with immune proteins to cause myriad changes in the immune system...
An ultrasound device interprets the person's neural activity and intentions and can move a robotic arm correspondingly.
It can be adapted also for various processes in agriculture and the residential and municipal water treatment.
Compared to current vaccines, the technology, which relies on a new type of nanoparticle, could introduce five times as much of the vaccine’s active ingredient, mRNA, into recipients’ cells.
The wave generated by the Beirut blast was slightly larger than a wave generated by the 2004 eruption of Asama Volcano in central Japan, scientists at Hokkaido University have found.
"LipType" performed 58 percent faster and 53 percent more accurately than other state-of-the-art models in various real-world settings, including poor lighting and busy market situations.
MicroProteins are a relatively new and unexplored field of research in which Prof. Stephan Wenkel's group is currently the only one in the world to specialize in.
