Scientists link unexplained childhood paralysis to enterovirus D68

A research team led by UC San Francisco scientists has found the genetic signature of enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) in half of California and Colorado children diagnosed with acute flaccid myelitis — sudden, unexplained muscle weakness and paralysis — between 2012 and 2014, with most cases occurring during a nationwide outbreak Read Full Article Here For…

Geologist identifies new source of methane for gas hydrates in Arctic

Research led by a University of New Hampshire professor has identified a new source of methane for gas hydrates—ice-like substances found in sediment that trap methane within the crystal structure of frozen water—in the Arctic Ocean. The findings, published online now in the May 2015 journal Geology, point to a Read Full Article Here For…

Scientists convert microbubbles to nanoparticles

Biomedical researchers led by Dr. Gang Zheng at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre have successfully converted microbubble technology already used in diagnostic imaging into nanoparticles that stay trapped in tumours to potentially deliver targeted, therapeutic payloads.

Drought damage leads to widespread forest death

The 2000-2003 drought in the American southwest triggered a widespread die-off of forests around the region. A Carnegie-led team of scientists developed a new modeling tool to explain how and where trembling aspen forests died as a result of this drought. It is based on damage to the individual trees’ Read Full Article Here For…
