MIT researchers have developed an ingestible sensor that can diagnose bleeding in the stomach or other gastrointestinal issues. The 1.5 inch long cylindrical device contains millions of genetically engineered bacteria, and is powered by 2.7-volt battery.
In a first, researchers at Garvan Institute of Medical Research, Australia have identified a new DNA structure inside living human cells. Known as the intercalated motif (i-Motif), the newly identified structure looks poles apart from the iconic double helix structure everyone associates with DNA.
Muscular strength, measured by handgrip, is an indication of how sharp your brain is. The study which involved nearly half a million people also showed that the relationships were consistently strong in both people who were under the age of 55 and those over 55.
Researchers at Yale University in New Haven, CT, have discovered that intestinal bacteria in mice and humans can travel to other organs and evoke autoimmune response. But, administering antibiotic or vaccine that targets the bacteria can subdue this autoimmune reaction.
