University of East Anglia researchers have found that eating cranberries could improve memory, ward off dementia, and reduce 'bad' cholesterol. The research team studied the benefits of consuming the equivalent of a cup of cranberries a day among 50 to 80-year-olds. They hope that their findings could have implications for the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases such as dementia.

Analyzed approximately 1.7 million time-series data obtained from over 1,000 tests in various C-rate conditions. For the first time in the world, they provided a statistical analysis for the effect of the C-rate on the cycle life and heat generation of lithium-ion cells, as previous studies have provided simply the change of charge and discharge capacities with cycling.

A test for the common blood cancer multiple myeloma also holds clear clues that the patient has one of the most uncommon and deadly forms of this cancer, investigators say.

Recent progress in photonics has inspired interest in material dynamics under external pumping. This progress has been shared by two flourishing but insofar disconnected areas: the first is Floquet physics, which investigates exotic out-of-equilibrium matter phases by applying an external temporal drive. The second is the one of metamaterials, offering several platforms to create tailored nanostructured, and now time-modulated, materials. Connecting these two platforms into Floquet metamaterials offers great opportunities for extreme wave control.

The SNMMI Annual Meeting will convene more than 6,000 attendees from around the globe to share breaking news and research in the field of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging. The focus is on precision medicine—improving patients’ lives by developing new ways to diagnose earlier and more accurately, delivering the most effective therapy for a specific patient’s disease, and monitoring and adjusting treatment to ensure optimum results.

Curtin University researchers will examine if the long-term use of a popular blood pressure medication increased the risk of breast cancer in almost 200,000 women as part of a new project supported by the Federal Government.
A survey of how academics use social media to encourage people to interact with their research argues that much of the public value of their work is being overlooked in official 'impact' assessments. The research analysed 200 examples of how academics encourage the uptake of their research on social media. It suggests the 'impact' measurements used to inform last week’s results from the ‘Research Excellence Framework’ – the official system for assessing research in the UK - require an update, because academics are now much more socially networked than they were when the system was devised.

Many age-related diseases share a common feature: the mitochondria of cells begin to malfunction. While the cause is not known, Buck Institute scientists have discovered a new mechanism of how mitochondria start to go wrong, which opens new doors for researchers to explore how to begin to fix the problem.

Injured women are half as likely as men to receive the life-saving drug tranexamic acid (TXA) even though the treatment is equally effective regardless of sex, according to new research in the British Journal of Anaesthesia.

New data from a study of more than 100 million hospitalizations using machine learning augmentation is being presented at the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography & Interventions (SCAI) 2022 Scientific Sessions. The findings reveal percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is safe and increasing among cancer patients.
