Even if you have had COVID-19, new vaccines will provide protection against new variants of the virus by helping the immune system produce antibodies.
UN Sustainable Development Goals: Good Health and Well-being
Researchers have developed a method that identifies bacteria easily, cheaply and more precisely than before. This can help reduce use of antibiotics.
It is not enough simply to target aid efforts at the poorest. We also have to combat discrimination and inequality both within and between countries.
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.
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?
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.
Apps and games make us exercise more often, play more, run further, learn better and work smarter. Meet the innovators who make you do the things you should be doing but that you maybe don’t want to.
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.
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.
Online abuse of children has increased considerably in recent years. Technological advances and inadequate legal regulation are driving this development, according to a new Norwegian report.
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.
The fact that our immune systems capture and destroy nanoparticles and the drugs they carry has been a problem in the field of nanomedicine for some time. But, in the fight against cancer, researchers are now attempting to exploit this problem to their advantage.
Endometriosis: If we utilise all the knowledge we have about cancer, there is reason to hope that effective diagnosis and treatments can be developed to combat the female condition ‘everybody’ is talking about.
