Scientists have developed an on-the-spot, temperature-sensitive gel that could seal eye injuries on the battlefield.

The reversible, temporary seal developed by researchers at University of Southern California (USC) in the US changes from a fluid to a super-strong semi-solid when applied to the eye.

When the patient is ready for surgery to permanently close the injury, doctors can remove the seal by adding cool water.

The material the group worked with for retinal implants is a hydrogel called PNIPAM, poly(N-isopropylacrylamide), which has a unique attribute that mak...

The Unicef report also said that South Asia had the largest...

The researchers found blood pressure declines were steepest in patients with dementia, heart failure, late-in-life weight loss, and those who had high blood pressure to begin with. But long-term declines also occurred without the presence of any of these diagnoses.

Doctors have long known that in the average person, blood pressure rises from childhood to middle age, but a new study warns that in the elderly, blood pressure gradually begins to decrease about 14 years before death. The study that looked at the electronic medical records of 46,634 British citizens who had died at age 6...
