For First Time, Star Factory Identified In 'Heart Of Milky Way'

Astronomers have reconstructed the development of star formation at Milky Way's core for the first time, discovering star birth erupted from the galaxy's centre. The studies also revealed over millions of years, the bulk of newborn stars in compact galactic centre drifted further away after developing with only tenuous bonds. Astronomers used HAWK-I infrared camera on the Very Large Telescope in Chile to examine a region of 64,000 square… read-more

Scientists Develop World's First 'Synthetic' Embryo With Brain & Beating Heart: Report

Cambridge University scientists have produced the world's first "synthetic" embryo with a brain and beating heart. The embryo was generated using mouse stem cells, which are similar to stem cells in the body and may develop into practically any form of cell. Researchers were able to encourage the stem cells to "speak" to each other by activating a certain set of genes and providing a particular environment for their interactions.

Clinical Test Confirms Cancer-Eradicating Medicine For 'First Time In History'

A clinical experiment found that after six months of using a medication, 12 individuals with rectal cancer had no symptoms of tumor. The medicine Dostarlimab was used in trial at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), New York. This is "the first time this has happened in the history of cancer," said Dr. Luis A. Diaz J., MSKCC. Researchers said the medicine seemed beneficial, but a larger-scale experiment is required.

HIV Medicine Might Help Middle-Aged Memory Loss: UCLA Study

University of California, Los Angeles Health Sciences found a crucial biochemical process underlying memory linking. The UCLA scientists concentrated on a gene called CCR5, which encodes the CCR5 receptor, which HIV uses to infect brain cells and cause memory loss in AIDS patients. The study shows that maraviroc might be used off-label to assist recovery of middle-aged memory loss as well as repair the cognitive deficiencies caused by HIV… read-more

Fossil Of Baby Dinosaur Found In China; Looks Like Modern Bird

Scientists of China have announced the discovery of a 66-million-year-old fossil of a dinosaur embryo in its egg in perfect condition. It's been named 'Baby Yingliang'. Reportedly, it looks like a modern birth at that stage but it has tiny arms in place of wings. The fossil was found in southern China and was sent to China's Yingliang Stone Nature History Museum in 2000 for further examination.
