Treating skin disease with ionic liquids

Ionic liquids may be able to penetrate bacterial biofilms and outer skin layers, enhancing treatment of skin infections, according to a study. Biofilms that protect bacteria causing skin infections pose an antibiotic-resistant barrier to treatment.

Blood pressure and exposure to black carbon in China

Black carbon (BC) pollutants from wood-burning stove smoke and vehicle emissions are associated with elevated blood pressure in Chinese women, according to a study. Nearly half of Chinese households cook with biomass and coal, and the number of motor vehicles on the roads is growing, causing increases in BC air pollution.

Extraction of remote sensing information of lakes in desert

Based on analysis of the spectral characteristics of ground objects in Badan Jaran Desert, modified index for desert lakewater identification was put forward in this paper. This new water index effectively increased the discrimination of water body fromthe information of vegetation and dry lakes, improving the extraction efficiency and precision.

Motion monitoring and analysis of Chang’E-3 rover based on same-beam VLBI differential phase delay

During the Chang’E-3 rover and lander carried out the tasks of separation and taking photos of each other, differential phase delay, which contained cycle ambiguity and was obtained by using same-beam VLBI technology, successfully monitored the rover’s movement on the lunar surface. The result showed sensitivity of rover motion monitoring was between 50-100mm. Furthermore, relative position between rover and lander was precisely measured by taking the use of the DPD’s changing trend.

Recent advances in understanding the impact of intestinal microbiota on host behavior

The complex communities of enteric flora that colonize the human gastrointestinal (GI) tract play an important role in human health. Within the GI tract, microbiota have a mutually beneficial relationship with their host by modulating gut motility and secretion, as well as maintaining normal mucosal immune function, epithelial barrier integrity and nutrient absorption.

Targeted delivery of antitumor drugs in development

The objective was to investigate the antitumor effect of F3-PE39KDEL in vitro and in vivo. MTT method was employed to determine the inhibiting effect of F3-PE39KDEL on MCF-7, A549, SKOV3 and HepG2 cell lines. These results suggest that the F3-PE39KDEL has good prospects in terms of targeted cancer therapy.

Great importance in single sand body description of river facies

With Area 1Z and Area 34 in Karamay Oilfield as examples, the stratigraphic division and correlation framework of Districts One and Three is built. Based on the previous results, the outcrop data and the logging interpretations, and the environment of river sediments, the braided river and the meandering river are divided into 3 subfacies and 4 microfacies.

How hummingbirds regained a sweet tooth

Hummingbirds detect sugars using a transformed taste receptor -- one that detects the savory umami taste in all other vertebrates, new research reports. This modification helped hummingbirds to sense nectar, a change that allowed them to exploit a distinct environmental niche compared to other birds.

The sceans that slowed 21st century global warming

Why did the rapid global warming that characterized the latter part of the 20th century slow down over the last 15 years or so? Many different theories have been proposed, but a new study suggests that a massive movement of heat from shallow surface waters to deep regions of the Atlantic and Southern Oceans -- but not the Pacific Ocean, as many researchers had predicted -- might be responsible.

For polio, two vaccines are better than one

Using both polio vaccines could help speed the global eradication of polio, a new study reports. The study, done in Indian children already given the live polio vaccine, shows that a single dose of the inactivated vaccine boosts immunity more effectively than an additional live vaccine dose.
