  • Novel adjunct therapy to eliminate opioid tolerance and mitigate side effects

    Researchers at the University of Dundee have identified an adjunct to opioid therapy that suppresses the development of tolerance and may mitigate other severe side effects associated with opioid use.

  • Particle Sorting by Dynamic Acoustic Travelling Waves

    This technology allows for effective separate suspended particles based on their stiffness, sorting by size and density. The separation uses dynamic acoustic fields enabling separation over a large distance, increasing the efficiency and throughput as compared to one operating on frequency shifting....

  • Biomarker assay to enable safe corticosteroid withdrawal

    Using hypothesis-free metabolomics screening, a list of seven biomarkers has been identified that, when combined, are highly sensitive in predicting corticosteroid dose and, thus, the risk of adrenal insufficiency on corticosteroid withdrawal. Quantitative assays for these metabolites will create a ...

  • New method of detecting endoscope position

    A method of accurately determining the exact position of the end of the fibre of an endoscope during a procedure, by optically imaging through the body. This gives precise knowledge of the location of observed tissue abnormalities, and the ability to effectively sample multiple regions of an organ.

  • Low Carbon Emissions Cement

    Researchers at the University of Aberdeen have developed a cement with good mechanical properties, reduced energy use and lower emission of greenhouse gases by use of partially calcinated components. Rice husk ash has been used as additive but other pozzolans or latent hydraulic binders are expected...

  • New DC/DC Converter for High Power DC Grids

    Researchers of the University of Aberdeen have developed a new DC/DC converter for high power DC grids that eliminates most of the drawbacks of alternative technologies (e.g. short circuits or commutation failures). It can help address bulk power transmission, integration of renewable energy sources...

  • Reducing the Risk of Bias in Biomedical Publications

    A text-mining tool which identifies the reporting of measures reducing the risk of bias in biomedical research publications. It would allow stakeholders, such as publishing groups and funding agencies, to assess the quality of their output, increasing confidence in the results and minimising the was...

  • Therapeutic target for treating vascular pathologies

    A long non-coding RNA target that regulates the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells, is present in the plasma of cardiovascular disease patients, and found at increased levels in unstable regions of atherosclerotic plaques. Therapeutic targeting of this molecule could inhibit vascular remo...

  • Fluorescent Dyes for Enhancing Fingerprints

    Fingerprint detection on porous and/or wet surfaces is notoriously difficult. Current dyes, whether based on colour enhancement, scattering or fluorescence, do not bind to fingerprints on such substrates.

    Expires: Created:
  • Combination Treatment for MRSA Nasal Carriage and MRSA-infected Wounds

    The new treatment is a combination of a peptide (ranalexin) with bacteria cell wall-digesting protein (lysostaphin), which specifically targets and kills Staphylococcus aureus, including MRSA.
