How plant viruses can be used to ward off pests and keep plants healthy

University of California San Diego

Imagine a technology that could target pesticides to treat specific spots deep within the soil, making them more effective at controlling infestations while limiting their toxicity to the environment. Researchers at the University of California San Diego and Case Western Reserve University have taken a step toward that goal. They discovered that a particular plant virus can deliver pesticide molecules deeper below the ground, targeting places normally beyond their reach. The work could help farmers manage infestations deep in the soil with less pesticide.

Deep Sedation and Controlled Paralysis Do Not Improve Survival of Critically Ill Patients with Severe Breathing Difficulty

Health Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh

Reversibly paralyzing and heavily sedating hospitalized patients with severe breathing problems do not improve outcomes in most cases, according to a clinical trial conducted at dozens of North American hospitals. The trial settles a long-standing debate in the critical care medicine community.

Big Data Reveals Hidden Subtypes of Sepsis

Health Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh

Much like cancer, sepsis isn’t simply one condition, but rather many conditions with varying clinical characteristics that could benefit from different treatments, according to a study involving more than 100,000 patients. The findings could explain why several recent clinical trials have failed.

Wearable cooling and heating patch could serve as personal thermostat and save energy

University of California San Diego

A new wearable patch could provide personalized cooling and heating at home, work, or on the go. The soft, stretchy patch cools or warms a user’s skin to a comfortable temperature and keeps it there as the ambient temperature changes. It is powered by a flexible, stretchable battery pack and can be embedded in clothing. Researchers say wearing it could help save energy on air conditioning and heating.

For Many HIV+ Women, Daily Survival Takes Precedence Over Viral Suppression

Georgetown University Medical Center

According to scientists who study women infected with HIV, statistics often paint an impressionist view of the lives of these women that misses the granular detail that tells the real story. The imprecise big picture is that most of this population is doing a good job at suppressing the virus, but facts gathered on the ground show that many struggle with issues of daily living that can make taking a pill to keep HIV at bay difficult.
