The (TGA) has granted provisional approval to antiviral drug remdesivir as a treatment option for COVID-19, for use in adults and adolescent patients with severe COVID-19 symptoms who have been hospitalised. This makes it the first medication for the novel coronavirus SARS-Cov-2 to be approved in Australia. Remdesivir has been described as the most promising treatment option so far to reduce hospitalisation time for those suffering from severe SARS-Cov-2 infections. By reducing recovery times patients will be able to leave hospital earlier, freeing beds for those in need. However, the product has not been shown to prevent coronavirus infection or relieve milder cases of infection. It will thus only be made available to Australians who are s.

Results of the experiments not only reveal new details about the DNA repair process, they also are likely to speed up and aid understanding of the DNA activity that typically causes ageing and many cancers. The team has since filed a provisional patent on their CRISPR technology, which has been described in the journal . CRISPR has in recent years enabled scientists to easily edit DNA sequences and alter gene functions to speed the pace of research on gene-linked conditions. Adapted from a naturally occurring gene editing system found in bacteria, CRISPR uses small sequences of genetic material called RNA as a kind of guide that is coded to match and bind to a specific sequence of genomic DNA within a cell. The CRISPR molecule also contains.

The microscope is said to generate far less noise than customary designs, and its compactness and stability make it suitable for use in operating rooms in hospitals. It has been described in the journal . When investigating how tumours grow, or how pharmaceuticals affect different types of cells, researchers have to understand how molecules within a cell react — and interact. This is possible with modern fluorescence microscopy; however, molecules in cell specimens have to be labelled with fluorescent substances to make them visible, and this can distort the very behaviour of the molecules. Staining with fluorescent markers is also generally unsuitable for in vivo tissues. The newly invented laser microscope does not require fluorescent mar.

An international team of researchers has demonstrated in an animal model that two impairments of old age — frailty and immunity decline — can be halted and even partially reversed using a novel cell-based therapeutic approach. Their work has been published in the journal . Elderly people are more prone to infectious diseases as the function of their immune system continuously declines with progression of age, as is apparent during outbreaks of seasonal influenza or other viral diseases such as COVID-19. The efficacy of vaccination in the elderly is similarly reduced, making this age group particularly vulnerable to infectious pathogens and having a high mortality rate. Aged individuals are also commonly affected by frailty that negatively i.

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia, currently affecting 47 million people worldwide — a figure that is expected to triple to more than 130 million cases by 2050. No effective treatments that cure the disease or slow down its progression have yet been discovered. Now, an early-stage study by researchers has revealed that repurposing an existing asthma drug, salbutamol, offers significant potential as a low-cost and rapid-response option. Their work has been published in the journal . Much Alzheimer’s disease research has focused on the build-up of amyloid plaques in the brain, caused by misfolding of the amyloid-β protein. However, because of disappointing results from numerous therapies targeting amyloid-β aggregat.

Researchers at have created a non-invasive technology platform for gene delivery into breast cancer cells, utilising low-frequency ultrasound (250 kHz) to detonate microscopic tumour-targeted bubbles like warheads. The technology was developed by ’s Dr Tali Ilovitsh during her postdoctorate research at Stanford, and has been described in the journal . “Microbubbles are microscopic bubbles filled with gas, with a diameter as small as one tenth of a blood vessel,” Dr Ilovitsh explained. “At certain frequencies and pressures, sound waves cause the microbubbles to act like balloons: they expand and contract periodically. This process increases the transfer of substances from the blood vessels into the surrounding tissue. “We discovered that usi.

Researchers from , in collaboration with and the (JASRI), have reduced the beam diameter of an X-ray free-electron laser to 6 nm in width. Their breakthrough, described in the , brings the utility of these lasers for imaging structures closer to the atomic level than was previously possible. To ‘see’ extremely small and otherwise invisible objects, and observe ultrafast chemical processes, researchers commonly use synchrotron X-ray facilities. X-ray free-electron lasers are an alternative that can — in principle — image atomic-scale detail of, for example, a virus particle on the timescale of an electron transition, without damaging the particle. To do this, you need an incredibly bright X-ray laser that focuses extremely fast laser pulses

The world’s deep oceans are warming at a slower rate than the surface, but it’s still not good news for deep-sea creatures. That’s according to an international study published in the journal and led by (UQ) PhD student Isaac Brito-Morales, who set out to look at how ocean life was responding to climate change. “We used a metric known as climate velocity which defines the likely speed and direction a species shifts as the ocean warms,” Brito-Morales said. “We calculated the climate velocity throughout the ocean for the past 50 years and then for the rest of this century using data from 11 climate models. “This allowed us to compare climate velocity in four ocean depth zones — assessing in which zones biodiversity could shift their distribut.

Neuroscientists have shed a new light on the mechanisms responsible for familial migraine, showing that a genetic dysfunction in specific brain cells of the cingulate cortex area strongly influences head pain occurrence. Their research has been published in the journal . Migraine is one of the most disabling disorders, affecting one in seven people and causing a tremendous social and economic burden. Several findings suggest that migraine is a disease affecting a large part of the central nervous system and characterised by a global dysfunction in sensory information processing and integration, which also occurs between migraine episodes (interictal period). For example, patients with migraine exhibit increased cortical responses to sensory.

Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation has long been an accepted disinfection method in medical fields. The light breaks down, or inactivates, viruses and bacteria at a core level. Earlier this year, a study found UV-C effective at disinfecting both steel surfaces and fabrics of SARS-CoV-2. Now global lighting company , together with the (NEIDL) at , has validated the effectiveness of its own UV-C light sources on the inactivation of the virus. Dr Anthony Griffiths and his team at treated inoculated SARS CoV-2 material with different doses of UV-C radiation coming from a Signify light source and assessed the inactivation capacity under various conditions.

Known as the Droplet and Aerosol Reducing Tent (DART), the device was designed in collaboration with doctors from the (NUH). The multidisciplinary team took less than two months to develop DART and validate its performance. Extra protection for frontline healthcare workers. The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically increased the need for infection control when intubating patients. Intubation is the placement of a flexible plastic tube into the windpipe to maintain an open airway or to serve as a conduit through which to administer certain drugs. The removal of this plastic tube is known as extubation. These are risky procedures that may put healthcare workers in danger of becoming infected. Evidence from the SARS outbreak in 2003 showed that he.
