The end of the PHEIC will not affect countries that have already relaxed measures, but epidemiologists warn about the impact on resources and access to diagnostics and treatments.
Unveiling Cancer’s Complexity: Deep Dive into Proteins Sparks Hope for Targeted Therapies Scientists decode intricate protein roles driving cancer across various tumor types, paving the way for innovative treatments that could disrupt cancer growth and stimulate immune defenses against abnormal proteins.
The Nobel Physics Prize has been awarded for research on attoseconds, incredibly brief time intervals, enabled by laser technology. Attoseconds are one billionth of a billionth of a second, crucial for understanding electron behavior. Electrons’ rapid movements impact all electronics, currently limited to nanoseconds. Harnessing attoseconds could accelerate data processing by a billion times. Measuring […]
In a calorie deficit diet, not only do you lose fat, but you also lose muscle, which can have serious consequences for your health. When you start a diet, your body initially uses up its glycogen stores, which releases water and leads to early weight loss. Once these stores are depleted, the body turns to […]
