James A. Harris, M.D., of the Hair Sciences Center of Colorado has invented and patented a new minimally invasive technology which will revolutionize the field of hair transplantation surgery. The new system utilizes an instrument called the Harris SAFE Scribe -- a small, self-contained device -- to isolate, extract and transplant single follicular units of hair without the trauma associated with other types of hair transplantation surgery.
According to Dr. Harris, a head and neck/facial plastic surgeon whose practice is limited solely to medical and surgical hair restoration, this breakthrough technology will benefit both transplant surgeons and patients.The Harris SAFE (Surgically Advanced Follicular Extraction) System will dramatically improve the field of hair restoration, making the surgery more accessible, more efficient and more affordable for the millions of men and women who are candidates for hair transplantation surgery. A less invasive surgical option, the Harris SAFE System also minimizes the pain, healing time and scarring associated with hair transplantation while leaving patients with the most natural results possible.
According to Dr. Harris, most hair transplant surgeons perform an invasive surgical procedure that requires the surgeon to surgically remove strips of scalp from the sides or back of the head, resulting in a linear scar and a lengthy healing time. A newer, less invasive technique called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) uses a small instrument to remove single follicular units of hair. Although much less invasive than traditional donor harvesting, FUE can be time consuming, potentially damaging to hair follicles, expensive and is only appropriate for a small percentage of patients.

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.
Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.
We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...
Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.
Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
