Experimental COVID-19 vaccine may outperform future coronavirus variants

A nurse is preparing a COVID-19 vaccine syringe. An experimental vaccine aims to get ahead of new variants by priming the immune system to recognize stable parts of the coronavirus. (Brian Vanderbrugger/Los Angeles Times) The new COVID-19 enhancer, put into use nationwide, is prized for its ability to recognize a unique spike protein shared by …

Experimental COVID-19 vaccine may outperform future coronavirus variants

The new COVID-19 enhancer, put into use nationwide, is prized for its ability to recognize a unique spike protein shared by BA.4 and BA.5, two strains of Omicron that currently account for nearly 90 percent of coronavirus specimens , currently in the U.S. But sooner or later, mutations in the spike protein will allow the …

A new experimental study solves the unsolved mystery of 'nanobubbles'

A new experimental study solves the unsolved mystery of ‘nanobubbles’

Schematic diagram of Xe nanobubbles obtained by molecular dynamics simulation. Formation events correspond to high Xe concentrations (about 30 water molecules per atom). Image credit: Jaramillo-Granada, Reyes-Figueroa and Ruiz-Suarez. Nanobubbles are extremely small (i.e. nanoscale) air cavities observed by some physicists in aqueous solutions, usually after a particular substance has dissolved in them. While some …

Experimental brain surgery kills appetite in 2 bulimia patients

Experimental brain surgery kills appetite in 2 bulimia patients

The first two patients who underwent experimental brain surgery for binge eating disorder said they felt more in control of what they ate and had less food cravings after a year. “I’m totally aware of my cravings,” Robin Baldwin, 58, of Citrus Heights, Calif., told NBC News. “Sometimes, I can stop, take a deep breath, …
