Researchers from the NUS Department of Materials Science and Engineering have created a solar-powered, fully automated device called 'SmartFarm' that is equipped with a moisture-attracting material to absorb air moisture at night when the relative humidity is higher, and releases water when exposed to sunlight in the day for irrigation.
The Infusion Nurses Society has adopted the international Aseptic Non Touch Technique (ANTT®) framework as a dedicated standard in its recently published 2021 Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice. According to Parker Laboratories, this standardized approach for application of aseptic practices during vascular access procedures will reduce variability and improve patient safety, particularly when visualization technology like ultrasound is required to facilitate catheter placement.
MD Anderson and Boehringer Ingelheim have expanded their joint Virtual Research and Development Center to accelerate the development of new targeted therapies against KRAS and TRAILR2 in lung cancer.
