A cheaper, faster COVID-19 test [Video]

A cheaper, faster COVID-19 test

A method for fast, cheap, yet accurate testing for COVID-19 infection has been developed by a team of researchers. The method simplifies and frees the testing from expensive reaction steps, enabling upscaling of the diagnostics. This makes the method particularly attractive for places and situations with limited resources. It is equally interesting for repeated testing and for moving resources from expensive diagnostics to other parts of the care chain. The study led by researchers at the Karolinska Institutet was published in the journal Nature Communications."We started working on the issue of developing a readily available testing method as soon as we saw the developments in Asia and southern Europe, and before the situation reached crisis point in Sweden," says principal investigator Bjorn Reinius, research leader at the Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics at Karolinska Institutet. "Our method was effectively finished already by the end of April, and we then made all the data freely available online."The spread of the new coronavirus at the end of 2019 in China's Wuhan region quickly escalated into a global pandemic. The relatively high transmission rate and a large number of asymptomatic infections led to a huge, worldwide need for fast, affordable, and effective diagnostic tests that could be performed in clinical as well as non-clinical settings.

Twitter rolls out new feature 'Fleets' [Video]

Twitter rolls out new feature 'Fleets'

Social networking service Twitter has got a new feature, called Fleets. The new tool will allow a user to write text, post photos, videos, or add earlier tweets into a little visual info-nugget that disappears after 24 hours. According to Mashable, the feature very much identical to Instagram Stories, which themselves are a rip-off of Snapchat Stories. The feature is rolling out globally, starting Tuesday, so it may not be available to some users right away. It should be on everyone's Twitter for iOS and Android "in the coming days," Twitter said. In March this year, Twitter started testing Fleets in several countries, including Brazil, Italy, India, and South Korea, and the feedback was probably good enough for the company to introduce them globally. "Because they disappear from view after a day, Fleets helped people feel more comfortable sharing personal and casual thoughts, opinions, and feelings," the company said in a press release. Mashable reported, aside from their temporality, Fleets are different from tweets in other ways. They do not allow retweets, likes, or replies, but a user can reply to them in the form of Direct Messages. The idea, according to Twitter group product manager Mo Aladham is for users to use Fleets to share "casual, everyday thoughts."

Vitamin E extracted from palm oil useful in boosting immune response based on studies on liver cells [Video]

Vitamin E extracted from palm oil useful in boosting immune response based on studies on liver cells

The findings of a new study conducted on mice liver cells reveal that vitamin-e extracted from palm oil helps in boosting the immune response of the body. Palm oil contains abundant quantities of vitamin E compounds, which include tocopherols and tocotrienols. These compounds have antioxidant effects, which protect cells from damage from toxic chemicals produced by metabolic processes. While tocopherol is a widely known and researched compound, there remains much to learn about tocotrienols. A team of researchers from Malaysia and Libya recently investigated the effect of tocotrienols extracted from palm oil on mice liver cells. The team investigated the expression levels of genes influenced by a transcription factor Nrf2, and the translocation of the same factor into the cellular nucleus. Nrf2 is known to upregulate phase II drug metabolism in reaction to metabolic processes. The genes activate cellular defence mechanisms. "Our study is the first in vivo study on the effect of tocotrienols on Nrf2on genetic material in the nucleus," said Azman Abdullah (Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia), the corresponding author of the study.

A study conducted on mice liver cells revealed that Vitamin E extracted from palm oil helps in boosting the immune response of the body. Palm oil contains abundant quantities of vitamin E compounds, which include tocopherols and tocotrienols. These compounds have anti-oxidant effects, which protect cells from damage from toxic chemicals produced by metabolic processes. While tocopherol is a widely known and researched compound, there remains much to learn about tocotrienols. A team of researchers from Malaysia and Libya recently investigated the effect of tocotrienols extracted from palm oil on mice liver cells. The team investigated the expression levels of genes influenced by a transcription factor Nrf2, and the translocation of the same factor into the cellular nucleus. Nrf2 is known to upregulate phase II drug metabolism in reaction to metabolic processes. The genes activate cellular defense mechanisms. The team observed that the translocation of Nrf2 in mice liver cells is both dose dependent, and functionally relevant."We observed that the maximum effect of Nrf2 translocation into the liver cell nucleus after administration of the palm oil extract occurred in 60 minutes of administration," said Abdullah. Palm oil is an economical source of vitamin E, and several studies have shown the beneficial effects on the immune system, which include anti-oxidant and anti-cancer activity as well has cytoprotective actions. Researchers hope that these findings pave the way for easily available remedies for a variety of diseases. The current study is published in Current Pharmaceutical Biotechnology.
