Wipeout: Omega Collection will hit PS4 in 2017

In an announcement made during Sony’s PlayStation Experience 2016 (PSX 2016) presentation, it was revealed that Wipeout: Omega Collection will be released for PlayStation 4 (PS4) in 2017.

The announcement, made via the launch of an initial trailer of the forthcoming Wipeout: Omega Collection, implies that Wipeout – the fastest game franchise in PlayStation history – is coming back next year. There have been no releases for the Wipeout series since the launch of the Wipeout 2048 game for PS Vita.

Got kidney stones? Alpha-blockers may be effective

Got kidney stones? Alpha-blockers may be effective

Washington D.C. [USA], Dec. 4 : To help people get rid of large kidney stones, US Researchers have promoted a non-surgical way by suggesting off-label use of drugs called alpha blockers that can facilitate stone passage.

The study was published online in the British Medical Journal.

Physicians are eager to find non-surgical ways to help the two-thirds of kidney stone patients who need more than just extra hydration to pass their stones.

Scientists find shape matters when light meets atom

Scientists find shape matters when light meets atom

Washington D.C [US], Dec. 4 : In a recent study published in the Natures Communications journal, researchers have shown that a photon's shape also affects how it is absorbed by a single atom.

Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what you're looking at.

Some photons reflect off, reaching your eyes, others get absorbed. The main decider of which happens is the photon's energy - its colour.

Scientists discover essential blood-clotting factors in hemophilia B patients

Scientists discover essential blood-clotting factors in hemophilia B patients

Washington D. C [US], Dec. 4 : In a recent research presented at the 58th ASH Annual Meeting, scientists have reported the highest and most sustained levels of the essential blood-clotting factor in patients with the inherited bleeding disorder, hemophilia B.

After receiving a single dose of an experimental gene therapy in a clinical trial, patients with hemophilia produced near-normal levels of clotting factor IX, allowing them to stop clotting factor infusions and to pursue normal activities of daily life without disabling bleeding episodes.

Researchers develop radiation free technique to image brain molecules

Researchers develop radiation free technique to image brain molecules

In a path breaking discovery, scientists from Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a new probe that allows them to image brain molecules without using any chemical or radioactive labels.

Currently, the gold standard approach to imaging molecules in the brain is to tag them with radioactive probes.

However, these probes offer low resolution and they can't easily be used to watch dynamic events, said researcher Alan Jasanoff.

Research sets new target for brain cancer therapy

Research sets new target for brain cancer therapy

A recent study suggests that two recently discovered genetic differences between brain cancer cells and normal tissue cells could offer clues to tumor behavior and potential new targets for therapy.

Published in Acta Neuropathologica, the study identified alterations in a protein known as ATRX in human brain tumors that arise as part of a genetically inherited condition known as neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1).

Cataract ups risk of depression in older adults

Cataract ups risk of depression in older adults

Older adults, especially women, with cataract are more likely to have symptoms of depression, says a new study.

The study was published in the Optometry and Vision Science journal.

According to researchers from Soochow University in China, the link between cataract and depression is independent of other factors and appears strongest among older adults with lower education.

Is saturated fat good for health?

Is saturated fat good for health?

A recent diet intervention study (FATFUNC) raises questions regarding the validity of a diet hypothesis that has dominated for more than half a century: that dietary fat and particularly saturated fat is unhealthy for most people.

The study, published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found strikingly similar health effects of diets based on either lowly processed carbohydrates or fats.

In the randomized controlled trial, 38 men with abdominal obesity followed a dietary pattern high in either carbohydrates or fat, of which about half was saturated.

Pregnant women who consume antidepressants may have babies with major congenital anomalies

Pregnant women who consume antidepressants may have babies with major congenital anomalies

In a recent dose-response analysis, scientists have found that pregnant women who take a specific type of antidepressant in early pregnancy have a small but significantly greater risk of having babies with major congenital anomalies (sometimes referred to as birth defects) or stillbirths compared with those who did not take these antidepressants.

Scientists develop new device to detect complicated prostate cancer

A recent research demonstrates that a novel imaging agent can quickly and accurately detect metastasis of prostate cancer, even in areas where detection has previously been difficult.

Published in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine, the Phase 1 dose-escalation study of Zr-89-desferrioxamine-IAB2M (Zr-89-Df-IAB2M), an anti-PSMA (prostate-specific membrane antigen) minibody, in patients with metastatic prostate cancer shows its effectiveness in targeting both bone and soft tissue lesions.
