Canadian pharmacy to be fined millions for illegal imports 13.4.2018 General News
An online pharmacy that bills itself as Canada's largest is expected to be fined USD 34 million today for importing counterfeit cancer drugs and other unapproved pharmaceuticals into the United States, a sentence that one advocacy group called too light for such a heinous crime. Canada Drugs has filled millions of prescriptions by offering itself as a safe alternative for patients to save money on expensive drugs, and its founder, Kristian Thorkelson, has been hailed as an industry pioneer for starting the company in 2001. But US prosecutors say Canada Drugs' business model is based entirely on illegally importing unapproved and misbranded drugs not just from Canada, but from all over the world. The company has made at least USD 78 million through illegal imports, including two that were counterfeit versions of the cancer drugs Avastin and Altuzan that had no active ingredient, prosecutors said. After more than two years of struggling to get the international company to appear in US ..

'Zero-waste smartphones in the offing' 13.4.2018 General News
Scientists have perfected a process to efficiently separate fibreglass and resin - two of the most commonly discarded parts of a cell phone, bringing zero-waste smartphones closer to reality. It is one of the first processes to use simple techniques like gravity separation to cleanly lift organic resins from inorganic fibreglass, researchers said. "Discarded cellphones are a huge, growing source of electronic waste, with close to two billion new cellphones sold every year around the world and people replacing their phones every few years," said Maria Holuszko, a professor at the University of British Columbia in Canada. "The challenge is to break down models that can no longer be reused into useful materials - in a way that does not harm the environment,' said Holuszko, who led the study published in the journal Waste Management. Most e-waste recycling firms focus on recovering useful metals like gold, silver, copper and palladium, which can be used to manufacture other ...

Higgs boson factory a 'must for big physics' 9.4.2018 Deccan Herald - Supplements
A top physicist says the construction of a factory to produce Higgs boson particles is a priority for the science community. In an exclusive interview, Nigel Lockyer, head of Americas premier particle physics lab, said studying the Higgs could hasten major discoveries. He said momentum in the physics community was gathering for a machine to be built either in Europe or Asia. "Our field uniformly agrees that would be a good thing," he said. The Fermilab director added: "The Higgs is such an interesting particle - a unique particle." The Higgs boson - named after British theoretical physicist Peter Higgs - was discovered in 2012 at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) particle smasher under the Franco-Swiss border. The detection capped a decades-long effort to detect the particle experimentally, adding the last missing piece to the theory of particle physics known as the Standard Model, or SM. The SM explains how the building blocks of the Universe behave and interact, but physicists know its just a stepping ...

JLR FY18 retail sales up 1.7 pc at 6,14,309 units 9.4.2018 General News
Tata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) today reported 1.7 per cent increase in its retail sales at 6,14,309 units for the fiscal year ended March 2018. The increase was driven by new models including the Range Rover Velar and the new Land Rover Discovery, the company said in a statement. Retail sales for March were at 83,732 units and 1,72,709 units for the fourth quarter, down 7.8 per cent and 3.8 per cent, respectively, primarily due to weak sales in UK and Europe. Sales for the financial year were up year-on-year in China (19.9 per cent), North America (4.7 per cent) and in overseas markets (3.4 per cent). However, retail sales in the UK and Europe were down by 12.8 per cent and 5.3 per cent, respectively, primarily driven by continuing uncertainty over diesel, JLR said. "Weaker market conditions in the UK and Europe, driven by lack of consumer confidence and lower demand for diesels, are impacting our growth," JLR Chief Commercial Officer Felix Brautigam said. He further said,
New blood test to detect early signs of Alzheimer's disease 7.4.2018 General News
Scientists have developed a new blood test for Alzheimer's disease that can detect early indicators of the disease long before the first symptoms appear in patients. The blood test would thus offer an opportunity to identify those at risk and may thereby open the door to new avenues in drug discovery, said the researchers from Ruhr University Bochum in Germany. One of the hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease is the accumulation of amyloid-beta plaques in the patient's brain. The blood test uses a technology called immuno-infrared sensor to measure distribution of pathological and healthy structures of amyloid-beta, according to a study published in the journal Molecular Cell. The pathological amyloid-beta structure is rich in a sticky, sheet-like folding pattern that makes it prone to aggregation, while the healthy structure is not. The two structures absorb infrared light at a different frequency, allowing the blood test to determine the ratio of healthy to pathological amyloid-beta in ..

New test offers hope for Alzheimer's sufferers 7.4.2018 General News
Seems like, a new blood test can be useful to detect people at risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.According to a Ruhr University Bochum-led study, the new blood test for Alzheimer's disease can detect early indicators of the disease long before the first symptoms appear in patients.The blood test would, thus, offer an opportunity to identify those at risk and may thereby open the door to new avenues in drug discovery.There is, as yet, no cure for Alzheimer's disease. It is often argued that progress in drug research has been hampered by the fact that the disease can only be diagnosed when it is too late for an effective intervention. Alzheimer's disease is thought to begin long before patients show typical symptoms like memory loss.One of the hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease is the accumulation of amyloid-beta plaques in the patient's brain.The blood test, developed by Klaus Gerwert and his team worked by measuring the relative amounts of a pathological and a healthy form of ...
