Tiny 'submarines' could help treat stomach diseases with acid-sensitive drugs

Tiny 'submarines' could help treat stomach diseases with acid-sensitive drugs

Tiny “submarines” that speed independently through the stomach, use gastric acid for fuel (while rapidly neutralizing it), and release their cargo precisely at the desired pH: Though it may sound like science fiction, this is a new method for treating stomach diseases with acid-sensitive drugs introduced by scientists in the journal Angewandte Chemie.

Cervical cancer mortality rates higher than previously thought, study reveals

A new analysis reveals that for most women, the risk of dying from cervical cancer is higher than previously thought. Unlike prior estimates that also included women who had undergone a hysterectomy and were therefore no longer at risk, this analysis only included women with a cervix. [More]
