A foundation supporting research on new drugs to treat Alzheimer’s disease says clinical trials now underway are testing 126 potential therapies for the disorder. . . . → Read More: Report – 126 Alzheimer’s Drugs in Clinical Trials

Artificial Beta Cells Shown to Produce Insulin as Needed

A biomedical engineering team developed artificial beta cells that in animal tests perform similar to natural cells in the pancreas to produce insulin as needed for controlling blood glucose levels. . . . → Read More: Artificial Beta Cells Shown to Produce Insulin as Needed

Phone-Based Lupus Home Test Kit in Development

A home test kit using smartphone imaging is being created by biomedical engineers to detect kidney inflammation caused by lupus, an autoimmune disorder. . . . → Read More: Phone-Based Lupus Home Test Kit in Development

Blood-Thinning Drugs Linked with Lower Dementia Risk

People with irregular heart rhythms given anti-coagulation drugs to reduce their risk of stroke were also less likely to develop dementia than their counterparts not receiving blood-thinners. . . . → Read More: Blood-Thinning Drugs Linked with Lower Dementia Risk

Univ. Lab, Company Broaden Bacterial Vaccine Impact

Researchers from University at Buffalo and a campus spin-off enterprise devised a way to expand the scope of anti-bacterial vaccines, as shown in tests with lab animals. . . . → Read More: Univ. Lab, Company Broaden Bacterial Vaccine Impact

Contact Lens Devised to Measure Glaucoma Eye Pressure

Engineers in the U.K. developed a soft contact lens that in a clinical study shows it can reliably track changes in pressure inside the eye, a key factor in glaucoma. . . . → Read More: Contact Lens Devised to Measure Glaucoma Eye Pressure

Live Skin Bacteria Shown to Control Acne

First results of a clinical trial show a spray-on formulation of live bacteria reduced the amount and severity of acne in people with mild to moderate cases of the condition. . . . → Read More: Live Skin Bacteria Shown to Control Acne

Snake-Like Intelligent Robot in Development

An engineering team is creating a self-powered robot that can travel independently like a snake through uneven and cluttered surfaces, such as disaster sites. . . . → Read More: Snake-Like Intelligent Robot in Development
