Researchers have developed a method that identifies bacteria easily, cheaply and more precisely than before. This can help reduce use of antibiotics.
Women continue to be underrepresented in senior positions in international sport organizations. New findings reveal more about the reasons why and offer advice on what to do about it.
SINTEF researchers have been testing different types of water distribution cabinets. Cabinets that combine the distribution of both domestic tap water and water for floor heating, are now shown to represent an unnecessary risk of Legionnaires’ disease.
Last week, the Hungarian Katalin Karikó and the American Drew Weissman were awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine for their research into the mRNA-technology applied to develop the vaccines used to combat Covid-19. But what exactly is mRNA technology?
Every organism needs to breathe – including cells that we use in in vitro microphysiological systems. We now have promising results with a material that enhances the quality of our experiments.
Researchers have concluded that many people are suffering unnecessarily and that treatment provision offered to patients is failing at many levels.
Ultrasound technology from NTNU makes it possible to monitor cerebral blood flow in newborn babies, helping prevent brain damage in premature and sick infants who require surgery.
Yes, say researchers – who suspect that disinfectants used in food production may in fact be exacerbating a global public health problem.
Sierra Leone used to be the most dangerous place in the world to give birth. Without enough doctors to do C-sections, women and babies were dying. But what if you didn’t need a doctor?
Bacteria in raw seafood can make you sick. Seafood can also spread bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics.
We all know that exercise is good for us, but how much, how hard, how long? One exercise physiologist’s research journey and the answers he found.
Sepsis, or blood poisoning, occurs more frequently than previously estimated by professionals. At the same, mortality rates have declined sharply. The two are connected.
Exercising can be absolutely awful. However, none of our excuses matter when it comes to the health benefits. The benefits go beyond physical health —exercise also has a major impact on mental health.
“Doctors should look at the length of pregnancy in patients with respiratory problems,” says researcher Kari Risnes. But if you were born before your due date, you can take some measures yourself to prevent lung infections.
If anything goes wrong with your heart, it is critical to get the right treatment quickly. Artificial intelligence can help with just this – and more lives can be saved.
How does it feel to be a relative of a loved one who is a patient in a hospital at home?
Hypertension affects one billion people and is considered the number one cause of death worldwide. Mass testing of genetic variants can now shed light on the cause of high blood pressure.
Women’s health continues to be given low priority. But a new video provides important information on how to strengthen the pelvic floor after childbirth.
The use of stem cells now makes it possible for us to cultivate so-called organoids, such as tiny versions of a liver, heart or small intestine, in the lab. These micro-organs can then be connected to a microchip that simulates the body’s biological processes. This ‘organ-on-a-chip’ technology opens the door to previously undreamt-of research possibilities.
Municipalities were given more responsibility for specialist health services in 2012. The changes appear to have resulted in better healthcare for the elderly.
Researchers have now found out how to stop the formation of harmful acrylamides when deep-frying potatoes to make crisps.
