The International Leica Society has posted a video of a camera sensor being cleaned at the Leica service centre in the Wetzlar factory in Germany.The video, taken by member Hari Subramanyam on his iPhone, shows the process of checking for dust on the sensor of his M (Typ 240) and then its removal. Well, that was what it was supposed to show, but after 20 minutes and 25 seconds the video finishes
A large clinical trial is launching in the UK, set to test a new Breath Biopsy technology with the goal of finding molecular biomarkers in breath samples that can be used to diagnose a variety of different cancers...

A newly published study has reported the first successful long-term survival of baboons transplanted with genetically modified pig hearts. The research is a massive leap forward in the ongoing quest to achieve effective cross-species organ transplantation, and more specifically help the many humans that die while on waiting lists for donor organs...

Exciting research from a team at the Salk Institute is developing a new subclass of anti-aging compounds that are hoped to extend lifespan, reduce the molecular markers of aging, and slow the onset of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's. The work is on the cusp of commencing two human clinical trials investigating the efficacy of two compounds derived from natural sources... Con
Early results from a phase 1 clinical trial into the safety and efficacy of a new cancer vaccine is suggesting promise for a new treatment designed to stimulate the immune system into attacking certain cancers known to overexpress a specific protein...

After a successful trial in two US plants, Ford is now offering a wearable upper-body exoskeleton to employees in 15 of its plants all across the globe. The EksoVest is designed to support workers' arms while they perform repetitive overhead tasks...

The deterioration of motor skills in Parkinson's patients is driven by the decline of dopamine production, but researchers in Japan are making exciting progress on a way to potentially arrest the slide. Following promising experiments on monkeys last year, scientists at Kyoto University are now preparing to begin transplanting reprogrammed stem cells into human brains as part of a first-of
An exciting experimental drug developed by scientists at Johns Hopkins Medicine has been found to stop the progression of Parkinson's disease in live mice models. The compelling new drug could be the first medication to specifically slow the progression of the devastating disease as opposed to current treatments that only target the symptoms... Continue Reading Drug that stops progression
The CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing system has inarguably revolutionized medical research, promising a future where scientists can treat a vast array of human illnesses from cancer to blindness. But since its discovery in 2012, progress towards human trials has been slow. Now, another setback has appeared with the FDA pausing one of the first human trials using the technique in the United State
