Gargling away bad bacteria

Gargling with an antiseptic mouthwash can reduce the so-called β€˜bad’ bacteria in the mouths of patients with type 2 diabetes, with some showing improved blood-sugar control as well. 

Molecule glasses magnify life-chemical observations

Scientists developed a molecular research transistor, or molecule glasses, with high sensitivity and resolution for observing interactions of tiny bioparticles like neurotransmitters.

Cholesterol and cancer link

An enzyme that influences cholesterol production could also be affecting cancer stem cells to multiply rapidly. It opens up possible new approaches to cancer treatment and even prevention. 

Quantum electronics leap

Researchers developed a new technology for transmitting quantum information over perhaps tens to a hundred micrometers – using structures commonly integrated into semiconductor manufacturing and nanotechnology.
