Sensor

Omni Vision, a creator of digital imaging has apparently secured a place in the Guinness book of world records. The company has announced the creation of world’s smallest image sensor. The sensor, ‘CameraCubeChip’ will likely aid medical applications. The company announced the new sensor in a press release on its website. Its representatives say that the camera will aid endoscopes. Additionally, it can capture really tiny parts of the body.

Climate Change

A new Duke study has found that the US industry’s water use has reduced drastically. The increasing use of natural gas and other renewables have led the change. The study is a major positive for the fight on climate change globally. Additionally, it makes an important argument for switching from coal. According to Avner Vengosh, professor of Geochemistry at Duke, the switch is helping save billions of gallons of water.

High Salt Diet

Salt can lead to nitric oxide deficiency and that has the potential to disrupt cognitive functions in a big way. Mainly, it is because the compound nitric oxide is critical for good vascular health, particularly in the brain. High Salt Diet and Dementia– Understanding Crimes, Culprit and Cases   According to researchers from Weill Cornell Medicine, low levels of the compound lead too chemical changes.

leukemia

In 2001, drug imatinib promised a road to life for millions of leukemia patients. This drug promised a new lease of life for nearly 80% of the patients suffering from Leukemia, a type of cancer. However, the solution was not a nail in the coffin for dangerous leukemia cells, unfortunately. The leukemia cells still remained in the body after the drug intake. In many cases, these came back to haunt

parkinson’s disease

Utilizing patient-derived neurons, Scientists at Northwestern Medicine are trying to come up with a brand new strategy. This is for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease through alleviation of harmful effects of genetic mutation. The study was published on Science Translational Medicine. Some of the experimental treatments that focused on treating genetic disorders targeted mutated enzymes or proteins. However, this particular research took an entirely different approach toward the treatment of
