An Unexpected Doorway Into the Ear Opens New Possibilities for Hearing Restoration

Researchers have developed a new method to deliver drugs into the inner ear. The discovery was possible by harnessing the natural flow of fluids in the brain and employing a little understood backdoor into the cochlea. When combined to deliver a ...

Follow the Leader: Researchers Identify Mechanism of Cancer Invasion

A cancerous tumor is the accumulation of cells uncontrollably dividing, some of which can invade other parts of the body. The process is difficult to predict in detail, and eradicating the cells poses even greater difficulty. Now, a research team has revealed how the exodus initiates, shedding ...

Researchers Develop Digital Test to Directly Measure HIV Viral Load

A milliliter of blood contains about 15 individual drops. For a person with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), each drop of blood could contain anywhere from fewer than 20 copies of the virus to more than 500,000 copies. Called the viral load, this is what is measured to allow clinicians to ...

New Sensor Chip Advances Rapid, Cost-Effective Disease Diagnostics

Scientists have developed a sensor chip that can detect many disease pathogens with 10 times the sensitivity of currently available ...
