New forms of drugs for dysbacteriosis and other gastrointestinal disturbances are being developed by the Novosibirsk researchers with support of the International Science and Technology Center (ISTC).
A lot of Russians suffer from malfunction of gastrointestinal tract. The frequent reason for that is dysbacteriosis – disturbances of normal intestinal flora. To fight dysbacteriosis, physicians prescribe eubiotic drugs to patients, which contain bacteria necessary for digestion, for example, bifidumbacterin, lactobacterin, colibacterin, bificol, etc. The drugs are good, but upon intake they are destroyed in the stomach, due to that their efficiency reduces. To increase efficiency of eubiotics, they should be protected in some way.
This problem is being solved by the researchers of the State Research Center for Virology and Biotechnology “Vector” (“Vector-BiAlgam” close corporation (Koltsovo, Novosibirsk Region)) with support of the International Science and Technology Center (ISTC). Bacteria making part of the drugs need protection, and there are two main methods to defend them. The bacteria are either placed into a capsule – this is a capsulated form of drug, or they are placed on a special carrier - sorbent – this is an immobilized form.

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.
When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure
Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
