Health News: Nanoparticle therapy promotes wound healing ♦ Preserving milk using pulsed electric field processing ♦ Laparoscopic hysterectomy may be safer

Nanoparticle therapy promotes wound healing  An experimental therapy successfully tested in mice cut in half the time it takes to heal wounds compared to no treatment at all. "We envision that our nanoparticle therapy could be used to speed the healing of all sorts of wounds,  Continue Reading
Preserving milk using energy efficient pulsed electric field processing  High voltage, short pulsed electric fields selectively damage cell membrane directly killing the contaminating bacteria by a process known as electroporation. Continue Reading
Laparoscopic hysterectomy may be safer than abdominal procedure  A study has compared the relative risks of laparoscopic hysterectomy (with morcellation) with abdominal surgery for hysterectomy in premenopausal women for presumed uterine fibroids. Examining short- and long-term complications,they found that abdominal surgery carries a higher risk of complications Continue Reading
Malaria-infected cells produce odors attractive to mosquitoes   The malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum produces chemical compounds called terpenes that give off odors that attract mosquitoes, according to new research. The study might explain why the insects are more likely to bite humans or animals infected with the organism. Continue Reading
Soils retain radioactivity in Fukushima  The soil's physical and chemical properties in rice fields around the Fukushima site have been the focus of recent study. Researchers examined factors affecting soil-to-plant transfer of radioactive cesium in the Fukushima area. Continue Reading
