Nasal Spray Vaccine Shown to Control Peanut Allergies

A vaccine to protect against peanut allergies, given as a nanoscale droplets suspended in a nasal spray, is shown to prevent allergic reactions in tests with lab mice sensitized to peanuts. . . . → Read More: Nasal Spray Vaccine Shown to Control Peanut Allergies

FDA Clears A.I. Software Detecting Diabetic Eye Disease

Fundus photograph

The Food and Drug Administration authorized a system for detecting diabetic retinopathy, a condition threatening the vision of people with diabetes, that uses artificial intelligence to analyze images of patients’ retinas. . . . → Read More: FDA Clears A.I. Software Detecting Diabetic Eye Disease

Implanted Sensor Monitors Alcohol in Body

Alcohol monitoring chip

A university bioengineering lab developed a tiny implantable sensor that in lab tests tracked alcohol levels in bodily fluids, while requiring little power, making it capable of operating for extended periods. . . . → Read More: Implanted Sensor Monitors Alcohol in Body
