Scientists have discovered a previously unknown layer lurking in the human eye.

The new found body part, dubbed Dua's layer, is a skinny but tough structure measuring just 15 microns thick, where one micron is one-millionth of a meter and more than 25,000 microns equal an inch. It sits at the back of th

New half-match bone marrow transplants

Half-matched bone marrow or stem cell transplants for blood cancer patients have typically been linked to disappointing clinical outcomes. However, a clinical trial conducted at the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson testing its unique, two-step half-match procedure has produced some promising results: the probability of overall survival was 45 percent in all patients after three years and 75 percent in patients who were in remission at the time of the transplant.

New generation asthma drug could improve metabolism

Formoterol, a new generation asthma medication, shows great promise for improving fat and protein metabolism, say Australian researchers, who have tested this effect in a small sample of men. The scientists presented their results on Saturday 4 June 2011 at The Endocrine Society's 93rd Annual Meeting in Boston.  

The research team comprises members of Professor Ken Ho's lab from Sydney's Garvan Institute of Medical Research as well as Professor Ric Day, a clinical pharmacologist from St.

To give value, marketers should understand –


a)      What is possible by them to give to the target audience?

b)      How can they give to the target group: the most ethical, effective and efficient way?

c)      What exactly are the target group’s ethical needs/wants/desires…

d)     What is the framework of ethics for this ‘giving of a value offering(s)’?


Gaining appreciation


Besides, the concept of ‘giving value’, marketers need to have the knack of gaining appreciation, preferably unsolicited appreciation: marketers should make even the most dodgy or pugnacious or fault-finding or reserved prescriber/customer appreciate the marketer’s value offering:  and then, translating this appreciation into tangible business or sales results.

We are all mutants

Each one of us receives approximately 60 new mutations in our genome from our parents. 

This striking value is published in the first-ever direct measure of new mutations coming from mother and father in whole human genomes published recently.

Finding genetic mistakes that fuel cancer

Finding genetic mistakes that fuel cancer

A dramatically better computer tool for finding the genetic missteps that fuel cancer has been developed by St. Jude Children's Research Hospital � Washington University Pediatric Cancer Genome Project investigators. Scientists are using the new algorithm to help identify the chromosomal rearrangements and DNA insertions or deletions unique to cancer.

Gonorrhea may become resistant to all antibiotics sooner than anticipated



Neisseria Gonorrhoeae


lSEPTEMBER 21, 2016

Experts have been worried for a while that time is running out for the last working cures for gonorrhea infections. On Wednesday, some revealed there may be even less time left on the clock than had been previously thought.

Scientists from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Hawaii’s department of health reported a cluster of cases of gonorrhea in that state in which the Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria showed high-level resistance to one of the drugs, azithromycin, as well as reduced susceptibility to the second drug, ceftriaxone.

Freeze-dried drug factories could make a slew of medicines — just add water

The contraption looks and sounds like a washing machine: a rumbling box with a circular window near the floor.

But if you look inside, you won’t see a whir of clothes; instead you’ll see a ring of crystalline ice.
