Researchers harness nature to produce the fuel of the future
A Princeton-led team has moved a step closer to designing bio-inspired syn­thetic cat­a­lysts to pro­duce hydro­gen from water. (2013-01-30)

Nonsmokers put on less weight
A new study links nicotine poisoning with weight gain, and concludes that active smokers, not only those who stop, put on more weight than nonsmokers. After four years of analysis in the University of Navarra, those who put on least weight were those who had never smoked. (2010-04-22)

Salmonella uses protective switch during infection
For the first time, researchers have found a particular kind of molecular switch in the food poisoning bacteria Salmonella Typhimurium under infection-like conditions. This switch, using a process called S-thiolation, appears to be used by the bacteria to respond to changes in the environment during infection and might protect it from harm, researchers report this week online in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Early Edition.

Just dive in
Yi Lu and his team at the University of Illinois in Urbana has laid the foundation for a new generation of rapid diagnostic tests that are as easy to handle as a pregnancy test: just dunk them in the sample and see if a colored band appears. (2006-11-21)

Illuminating the dark side of plants
Plant poisoning is a significant problem around the world. In the United States, exposures to plant toxins account for approximately ten percent of the annual calls to the nation's Poison Control Centers. Responding to the need for a useful guide to the harmful potential of plants, Handbook of Poisonous and Injurious Plants provides portable, comprehensive information to the toxic plants encountered everywhere, both inside and outside the home.

ACS Weekly PressPac -- July 12, 2006
The American Chemical Society News Service Weekly Press Package for July 12 with reports from the 34 major journals. (2006-07-17)

Research on salmonella in the poultry industry may result in safer food for consumers
A team of researchers in the newly-formed Department of Population Health at the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine has launched a study to determine how to eliminate salmonella bacteria from the poultry production process. (2005-09-16)

Scientists find new way to kill tuberculosis
Scientists have discovered a new way of killing the bacteria that cause tuberculosis (TB), using a toxin produced by the germ itself. (2020-07-29)

Environmental engineer works to resolve arsenic poisoning in Bangladesh water supplies
University of Cincinnati engineering professor Shafiqul Islam returned to his native Bangladesh in October 2001 as a Senior Fulbright Scholar for six months to help solve what has been called (2002-02-06)

MU scientist develops salmonella test that makes food safer, reduce recalls
Earlier this year, an outbreak of salmonella caused by infected eggs resulted in thousands of illnesses before a costly recall could be implemented. Now, University of Missouri researchers have created a new test for salmonella in poultry and eggs that will produce faster and more accurate results than most currently available tests. The new test could have prevented the contaminated eggs from being shipped to stores. (2010-11-22)

PETA and PCRM researchers publish on in vitro methods for assessing tobacco toxicity
The tobacco industry and regulatory authorities should support more relevant and less costly in vitro toxicology testing methods over unreliable animal testing, according to a review of research advances published this week in the comment pages of the peer-reviewed scientific journal Alternatives to Laboratory Animals. (2015-04-01)

Research on lead poisoning, hair styling and artists' oil paints will be featured at Towson University gathering of world's largest scientific society
Research on lead poisoning, hair styling, fireworks and artists' oil paints will be featured at 34th Middle Atlantic Regional Meeting, May 30-June 1 of the American Chemical Society. Seven hundred scientists are expected to attend the meeting, held at Towson University near Baltimore. (2001-06-01)

Protecting smart machines from smart attacks
Machines' ability to learn by processing data gleaned from sensors underlies automated vehicles, medical devices and a host of other emerging technologies. But that learning ability leaves systems vulnerable to hackers in unexpected ways, researchers at Princeton University have found. (2019-10-14)

Superantigens could be behind several illnesses
Superantigens, the toxins produced by staphylococcus bacteria, are more complex than previously believed, reveals a team of researchers from the University of Gothenburg in an article published today in the scientific journal Nature Communications. Their discovery shows that the body's immune system can cause more illnesses than realized. (2010-11-28)

Life expectancy gap between Black and white people in Washington, DC, analyzed
Heart disease, homicide and cancer are leading contributing factors to stark differences in life expectancy between Black people and white people in Washington, DC, according to a study published in Scientific Reports. (2020-08-27)

Better immune defense against anthrax
Scientists discover a gene in anthrax-causing bacteria may help defend against this form of bio-warfare. (2009-09-08)

Study paves way for healthier and more robust eggs
An eggshell is made up of both organic and inorganic matter that contains calcium carbonate. One of the important findings of the study was that the nanostructure was closely linked to the presence of osteopontin, a protein which is also found in bones. (2018-04-17)

Saliva plays a role in the body's defense against traveler's diarrhea
Researchers have identified a protein in saliva (histatin-5) that protects the body from traveler's diarrhea. The findings, available online in the Journal of Infectious Diseases, may lead to the development of new preventive therapies for the disease. (2018-03-08)

Poison Centers benefit patients, reduce medical costs, study finds
Illinois hospitals could save $34.6 million if all poisoning patients admitted received assistance. (2014-03-10)

Environmentally friendly lignin nanoparticle 'greens' silver nanobullet to battle bacteria
Researchers have developed an effective and environmentally benign method to combat bacteria by engineering nanoscale particles that add the antimicrobial potency of silver to a core of lignin, a ubiquitous substance found in all plant cells. The findings introduce ideas for better, greener and safer nanotechnology and could lead to enhanced efficiency of antimicrobial products used in agriculture and personal care. (2015-07-13)

Site of human-dolphin partnership becomes protected area
The government of Myanmar has established a protected area for, of all things, a partnership between fishermen and a small, gray beakless dolphin with a knack for herding fish into nets, according to the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS). (2006-06-22)
