In the animal studies, Chibale said the compound lasted for at least eight days in the bloodstream, acting as a shield against infection. Not a vaccine Chibale is quick to caution that the compound is not a vaccine, which stimulates the immune system to afford long-lasting protection against a pathogen. Development of a vaccine against malaria has been a difficult and frustrating process. Instead, Chilabe said, MMV048 targets a protein that the parasite needs to protect itself from the immune system. The parasites are destroyed in the liver, said Chilabe, the first place they travel after someone is bitten by an infected mosquito. The parasites are thus prevented from migrating into the bloodstream where they infiltrate red cells by the thousands, maturing into a form that can be transmitted back to mosquitoes. Chibale said MMV048 appears to be effective against parasites that have become resistant to existing drugs.

Even Pai's fellow GOP commissioner, Michael O’Rielly, who’s no fan of the current rules, expressed some skepticism about obtaining voluntary commitments from private companies. O'Rielly, who spoke at the same event as Pai, made a plea for lawmakers to get involved in the net neutrality issue. The only way to bring resolution to the net neutrality debate once and for all is for Congress to consider and enact legislation on the subject matter, as it deems appropriate, he said. There can be no lasting peace until that happens.

To treat headaches, back pain or fever, most of us have reached for ibuprofen at one point or another. But we often have to take doses every four to six hours if the pain warrants it. Now scientists are working on a way to package the commonly used drug so it can last longer. Their approach, reported in ACS' journal Molecular Pharmaceutics, could also be used to deliver other drugs orally that currently can only be taken intravenously.

Premature birth is the most common cause of death among infants worldwide. About 15 million babies (five to twenty percent of the total) are born pre-term each year. Over the years we've got better at caring for those infants, and survival rates have risen, but those who survive are still at risk of infections, lung damage and lasting disabilities. Now, however, a team at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia has developed an artificial womb that has been tested on premature lambs and could be used for human babies within the next three years. Plastic bag The artificial womb is essentially a fluid-filled plastic bag. The fluid is made of water and salts, just like in a real womb, and the bag is sealed to protect the foetus from infection. Instead of a placenta, an oxygenator is connected to the umbilical cord so that the creature's own heart can work to collect oxygen.

They argue that it would not provide the kind of lasting assurance to the business community needed to produce long-term investments and economic growth. Leaders are also not certain a temporary tax cut would be scored as deficit neutral, even if it sunsets in 10 years. A letter Tuesday to Ryan from the Joint Committee on Taxation, obtained by POLITICO, suggests the cost of a mere three-year corporate tax cut to 20 percent — from 2018 through 2020 — would spill over into the second decade window, thus barring the bill from being fast-tracked. “We project a non-negligible revenue loss in the tax years immediately following the budget window,” the letter states.

Whereas, for some people, “ignorance is bliss,” others prefer to know. They want to know, because (more often than not) an ignorant bliss soon becomes followed by a far longer-lasting non -bliss. This way, the economy actually depends upon the few who know, taking advantage of the many who dont. This is just a fact about real-world economics. And it provides an opportunity for the few homeowners on Florida’s coast, to take advantage of the many individuals who, simply, dont yet know. Because, after that canary is dead, will be too late to sell, at all. They’ll just be stuck, with that lot of garbage. Continuing to wait for the peak in this market is clearly a fool’s game, at the present stage. It’s more like Russian roulette , than like any sort of intelligent business decision. Some might find it thrilling, but most will find it simply depressing, and they’ll want to get out of it ASAP, now that they know.

An artificial womb filled with clear liquid, successfully tested on pre-natal lambs, could help extremely premature babies avoid death or life-long disability, researchers reported Tuesday. "It is designed to continue what naturally occurs in the womb," said Alan Flake, a foetal surgeon at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and senior author of a study in Nature Communications that details the breakthrough. "That's the beauty of it, and why I'm optimistic we will improve on what is currently done for extremely premature babies," he told journalists by phone. Today, infants brought into the world after only 22 or 23 weeks of gestation rather than the full 40 have a 50/50 chance of living, and -- for those that survive -- a 90 percent change of severe and lasting health problems. The new system mimics life in the uterus and could, if approved for human use, dramatically improve those odds.

That effect lasted at least a month, long after the drug had left a mouses system. Through her startup, Brachman is working on developing a related drug that could be used as a resilience enhancer to protect against depression. Its important because we dont have any cures, Brachman tells Fast Company . Antidepressants arent fully effective (and for some people arent effective at all, or can stop working over time), and can cause unpleasant side effects. The preventative drug would also have the advantage ofpotentially needing only one dose.From testing, the researchers know that the preventative effects of ketamine last at least a month, and may last longer. Preventative interventions, especially if they give a long lasting protection,have a much higher likelihood of making it to underserved communities, she says.

Are consumer boycotts just attention-grabbing political theater? Or can ordinary people voting with their wallets have a lasting impact on society at large? On the evening of January 28, 2017 freelance writer Dan O’Sullivan took to Twitter to protest the actions of ride-sharing service Uber. Under the hashtag #deleteUber, he accused Uber of trying to “profit off of refugees” after local taxi drivers had halted service to and from New York’s John F. Kennedy airport in solidarity with people affected by President Trump’s so-called Muslim ban on air travel throughout the US. What prompted O’Sullivan’s tweet was Uber’s decision to suspendsurge pricing” near JFK, which was seen as a signal to its drivers to pick up airport fares temporarily stranded by the absence of taxis. Within hours, O’Sullivan’s tweet went viral. Uber users, angry at what they saw as the corporation’s attempt to undercut the taxi driversanti-Trump work stoppage, hashtagged and retweeted.
