Micron-Sized Hydrogel Cubes Show Highly Efficient Delivery of a Potent Anti-Cancer Drug

Researchers have developed micro-cubes that can sponge up a hydrophobic anti-cancer drug and deliver it to cancer cells. Tissue culture tests show these tiny, porous cubes, loaded with the hydrophobic drug, are more potent against liver cancer cells and less harmful to normal liver cells.

Mitochondrial Disease Has a Disproportionate Healthcare Burden in U.S.

McComackShanaRGB-16.jpg

Mitochondrial diseases are a diverse group of disorders caused by mutated genes that impair energy production in a patient’s cells, often with severe effects. Patients incur high medical costs when hospitalized, and suffer higher-than-typical rates of comorbid diseases and in-hospital mortality. Researchers who analyzed those costs in national databases say their findings underscore the importance of developing preventive strategies and therapies for these illnesses.

A new study out of Florida State University shows that individuals more socially proximate to electoral candidates turn out at a higher rate and individuals more socially proximate to a given political party’s candidates vote disproportionately for that party.

Study Illuminates Serotonin Contributions to Cocaine’s Allure

blakey_randy_newsdesk.jpg

A new study reinforces long-held suspicions that the brain chemical serotonin, a molecule usually associated with mood, appetite and libido, makes a direct contribution to the actions of cocaine. Scientists can now clearly see details of how the brain uses serotonin not just to regulate mood, but also to drive both rapid and long-lasting changes in the brain. They suspect these changes may contribute to the brain modifications that ultimately trap users in an addicted state.
