New technology helps reduce injection pain, swelling from some best-selling drugs

January 15, 2020

Eight of the top 10 selling drugs in the United States are biologics, which are produced from living organisms or certain components of living organisms. Subcutaneous injection—where the drug is injected into the tissue layer between the skin and the muscle—is emerging as an effective delivery route alternative to intravenous infusion and allows a user to take the drug at home.

Ancient iron-sulfur-based mechanism monitors electron flow in photosynthesis

January 9, 2020

A delicate balance of electrons flowing through the photosynthetic machinery is essential to a plant's ability to turn sunlight into energy and its survival. Understanding the factors that regulate this balance is key for plant breeders who may want to improve light energy conversion in crop plants for increased yield.
