For the first time, the remains of this hadrosaur were discovered in the 1980s in Argentina, and then scientists diagnosed him with a foot fracture. However, a new study now shows that this individual from the ornithopod suborder had a tumor about 70 million years ago, as well as two painful fractures in the vertebrae of its tail. But despite this, the hadrosaur was able to survive.
An impressive new study conducted by a group of Australian researchers has revealed a new mechanism of immune depletion. The data obtained indicate a treatment method that can increase the effectiveness of cancer immunotherapy and help patients overcome severe viral infections.
Cancer is the collective name of more than 200 types of oncological diseases. For the first time, the name of the pathology was given by Hippocrates: he saw a tumor that resembled cancer with its appendages. Hippocrates also gave a description of cancer of the breast, cervix, skin, stomach, nasopharynx and rectum. The first mention of cancer and its treatment methods were described in 1600 BC in the Surgical Papyrus of Edwin Smith – one of the most important medical texts of Ancient Egypt. Then the sages advised cauterizing the superficial tumor with an arsenic-based ointment. And in the ancient Indian poem Ramayana, the removal of a tumor by surgical intervention was described for the first time.
Summer is finally on the calendar! It's time for vacations, kebabs, long walks and, of course, beaches. An even tan is an essential attribute of a good rest and a fun vacation. Alas, sometimes staying ashore turns into a complete disaster.
A convolutional neural network developed by Dutch and Danish doctors diagnoses lung cancer from fluorography and computed tomography images. The AI division of IBM Corporation has developed a tool for translating from one programming language to another. The British startup Flawless plans to release a visual dubbing program that corrects the movement of the actor's lips so that the facial expressions look natural in another language.
Researchers from the University of Alberta have developed a new technique for 3D printing non-standard shaped cartilage. It can be used to reconstruct the nose (for example, in patients with skin cancer), eliminating the need to take samples of cartilage from other parts of the body.
A deep convolutional neural network diagnoses melanoma with 90% accuracy. Bacteria become sensors of heavy metals in the environment. Drosophila fly teaches roboticists to control unmanned vehicles.
The BrainGate wireless neurocomputer interface has been developed, which allows a paralyzed person to type text with the power of thought. Neutrobots have learned to overcome the blood-brain barrier and deliver medicine to the brain
Studies on coffee appear all the time. If at the end of the XX century they most often talked about the dangers of coffee, then in the XXI century the tone changed diametrically. Hundreds of studies on the benefits of coffee have been published. Of the latter: coffee is useful for older people as a means of preserving hearing; coffee protects against prostate cancer; coffee helps people who have suffered serious illnesses and diabetics.
The main news on January 15 is devoted to nutrition. A gluten-free diet helps against cancer. Fast food accusations of obesity in children have not been confirmed. Nuclear magnetic resonance will calculate how much arabica is in the mixture, and how much is robusta. The man injected mushroom tea into the vein, but remained alive.
