Medication you can wear
Medication you can wear
Drug-releasing textiles could, for instance, be used to treat skin wounds. Empa researchers are currently developing polymer fibers that can be equipped with drugs. The smart fibers recognize the need for therapy all by themselves and dose the active ingredients with precision and accuracy. For the «Self Care Materials» project, fibers are produced from biodegradable polymers using various processes.

Link between Gut Flora and Multiple Sclerosis Discovered
Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease in which the body's own immune system attacks and damages the protective coating around nerve cells. This coating is made up of myelin - a biological membrane of protein and fatty substances - which is why research efforts to find the disease's target antigen have so far focused on the myelin membrane's components.

Larger Families Reduce Cancer Risk
Larger Families Reduce Cancer Risk
Researchers from the Institute of Evolutionary Medicine of the University of Zurich and the Adelaide Medical School have analyzed data from 178 countries and found a link between family size and cancer risk. Worldwide the incidence of various types of cancer increases with smaller family size. “And this relationship is independent of income, levels of urbanization and age,” explains Professor Maciej Henneberg, academic guest at UZH and senior author of the study.

A study to maintain food security in Uganda
A study to maintain food security in Uganda
By identifying the genes involved in resisting Africa's most widespread cattle disease, researchers at EPFL have developed a map of Uganda showing cattle farmers where the riskiest areas are. "We hope that our research will have an impact, because it addresses some major issues regarding food security in Africa over the medium and long term," says Stéphane Joost, who works in EPFL's Laboratory of Geographic Information Systems (LASIG) and is the corresponding author of a study recently published in scientific review Frontiers in Genetics .

Human hair cells from a test tube
Human hair cells from a test tube
Researchers from the University of Bern and Bern University Hospital have managed for the first time to differentiate human inner ear cells in a laboratory from somatic progenitors and to investigate their origin. This will make it possible to develop new treatment methods for hearing impairment in the future.

Targeted Vaccination to Interrupt Rabies Transmission
Targeted Vaccination to Interrupt Rabies Transmission
Although the disease is preventable, rabies continues to kill more than 60'000 people per year - mainly children in Asia and Africa. New research by Swiss TPH may pave the way to more targeted dog vaccination in order to eliminate rabies by 2030. The rabies virus is primarily (99%) transmitted to humans through dog bites.

Narcolepsy, scientists unmask the culprit of an enigmatic disease
Narcolepsy, scientists unmask the culprit of an enigmatic disease
Patients with a rare disease, called narcolepsy, suffer of excessive daytime sleepiness and cataplexy. A study published in the renowned scientific journal Nature reports the cause of the disease, which has previously been a mystery. The study is the result of a close collaboration between researchers from the University Sleep-Wake-Epilepsy-Centre Bern at the University Hospital (Inselspital), the Institute for Research in Biomedicine in Bellinzona and ETH Zurich.

World’s largest Alzheimer’s survey reveals most adults believe a cure will be developed in their lifetime
From a sample of over 10,000 adults, 62% are worried that they may develop Alzheimer's disease and 91% believe the solution to tackling diseases lies in medical research   79% are willing to take part in medical research but three-quarters (75%) have no idea how to get involved   This World Alzheimer's Month, in association with Alzheimer's Disease International, Novartis, Amgen and Banner Alzheimer's Institute are raising awareness about how to

A very special protein synthesis machinery
A very special protein synthesis machinery
Sleeping sickness-causing parasites contain an unusual protein synthesis machinery. A team of researchers from ETH Zurich and the University of Bern resolved its very special structure for the first time. Ribosomes are among the most important molecular machines within the cell that hardly changed in the course of evolution.

Facilitating diagnosis with a new type of biosensor
Scientists from the Max Planck Institute and EPFL have developed a new type of biosensor able to precisely quantify metabolites using a single drop of blood. The accuracy and simplicity of the procedure could make it a tool of choice for diagnosing and monitoring several diseases. Diseases or injuries can result in dramatic changes in the blood levels of metabolites, which are chemical compounds produced by the body's metabolism.

Scent of a woman: what makes it attractive?
Scent of a woman: what makes it attractive?
Reproductive hormones control a woman's monthly cycle and regulate fertility. Reproductive hormones are also related to how attractive a woman smells a study now shows. Researchers at the University of Bern demonstrate that some women smell better to men than others. Namely those who are "fittest" for reproduction.

Special Antibodies Could Lead to HIV Vaccine
Special Antibodies Could Lead to HIV Vaccine
Around one percent of people infected with HIV produce antibodies that block most strains of the virus. These broadly acting antibodies provide the key to developing an effective vaccine against HIV. Researchers from the University of Zurich and the University Hospital Zurich have now shown that the genome of the HI virus is a decisive factor in determining which antibodies are formed.

Using biosensors to deliver personalized doses of antibiotics
A team of eight EPFL students has come up with a portable biosensor that can measure the amount of vancomycin in a patient's blood stream, enabling doctors to better control the dosage and reduce harmful side effects.

B Cells Among Factors Leading to Brain Lesions in Multiple Sclerosis
B Cells Among Factors Leading to Brain Lesions in Multiple Sclerosis
A team of researchers has shown that in multiple sclerosis, it is not only specific T cells that cause inflammation and lesions in the brain. B cells, a different type of immune cell, also play a role. These cells activate T cells in the blood. This discovery explains how new MS drugs take effect, opening up novel options for treating the disease.

Eating less is healthy thanks to gut bacteria
Eating less is healthy thanks to gut bacteria
Mice with a lower calorie intake live longer and are both healthier and leaner. A team of researchers may have found the reason for this positive effect: much of it is down to gut microbial communities and how they affect the immune system. The researchers also found compounds that mimic caloric restriction and may transform obesity treatments.

New Findings about Diagnostic Tools for Malaria Elimination
New Findings about Diagnostic Tools for Malaria Elimination
Together with international partners, Swiss TPH conducted a study to assess multiple diagnostic tests intended to support malaria elimination. Results published yesterday in The Lancet Infectious Diseases found that rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) including a novel ultra-sensitive RDT, cannot replace molecular diagnostic tests to identify potential malaria transmitters.

Protein Modifications that Point to Cancer
Protein Modifications that Point to Cancer
Researchers from the University of Zurich can, for the first time, precisely characterize the protein modification ADP-ribosylation for all proteins in a tissue sample. The changes, which are a typical reaction to stress, provide information about the condition of a cell. Together with the University Hospital Zurich, they are now testing the new method to diagnose and treat cancer.
