Large boils, acid-like facial wounds, death by maiming of viscera. Leishmania parasites inflict suffering that is the stuff of parables. They're the second-deadliest parasites after malaria, and global warming is pushing them north. Can this new experimental vaccine someday stop them?

New dental imaging method uses squid ink to fish for gum disease

Squid ink could make getting checked for gum disease at the dentist less tedious and even painless. By combining squid ink with light and ultrasound, a team led by engineers at the University of California San Diego has developed a new dental imaging method to examine a patient’s gums that is non-invasive, more comprehensive and more accurate than today's periodontal exam.
