Study highlights the negative impact of air pollution on employees’ productivity

Published 18 August, 2021

Recent studies have highlighted the link between high levels of air pollution and poor health; for example, even short exposure to air pollutants can increase the risk of respiratory infections, heart disease and even lung cancer. Research has also shown that air pollution can negatively impact human capital; the attributes valued by employers, such as good communication skills, punctuality and emotional well-being.


Why nanoparticles could prove a game changer for cancer immunotherapy

Published 13 August, 2021

The major goal of cancer therapy is to destroy cancer cells while sparing the surrounding, healthy tissue. The term ‘tumour microenvironment’ (TME) describes the area around a tumour, which typically consists of blood vessels and immune cells etc. As the TME can impact tumour progression and metastasis, finding a way to control it is high on the wishlist of researchers. For many, nanoparticles – particles of matter that generally vary between 1 and 100 nanometres in size – offer a promising solution. Alongside their prolonged retention time and ability to directly attack cancer cells, with delicate modification, these nanoparticles could achieve targeted delivery and effective control of the TME.


Does age matter? It might when it comes to the impact of mindfulness on college athletes

Published 10 August, 2021

Mindfulness, often described as non-judgemental attention in the present moment, is increasingly being used to help athletes with a variety of issues, ranging from performance improvement to stress reduction. While research has supported the effectiveness of mindfulness in sport, less is known about which groups are likely to benefit from it the most.


Melting High Mountain Asia glaciers are revealed as a potential source of greenhouse gases

Published 19 July, 2021

The cryosphere, a term used to describe the areas of the Earth's surface where water exists in solid form, plays an important role in regulating the Earth's climate. Due to cryospheric retreat; for example, the melting Greenland ice sheet in the Arctic, greenhouse gases that were formerly in "frozen storage" are now being released. High Mountain Asia, also known as the Tibetan Plateau, hosts the largest volume of glaciers outside the polar regions. However, Tibetan glaciers are currently excluded from global greenhouse gas budgets.


How robots and brain-computer interfaces could transform stroke patients' recovery

Published 12 July, 2021

Strokes, which occur when the blood supply to part of our brain is interrupted or reduced, are the leading cause of death and disability in the adult population. Among the patients who survive, 75% will experience difficulties carrying out daily activities independently and need long-term functional exercises and rehabilitation. But the outcomes using traditional rehabilitation equipment are poor. In addition, the motivation of patients to train is often low.


New characterisation strategy proves promising in high-purity metal separation

Published 07 July, 2021

Metals with similar chemical properties are usually extracted together, which limits the opportunities to separate high-purity metals. To increase those opportunities, it's important to understand how different metal species act during the solvent extraction process.


Study of presymptomatic COVID-19 cases in China highlights the importance of screening

Published 02 July, 2021

Magnesium Ions Injected Directly into Compromised Bone Accelerate Bone Regeneration

Published 03 June, 2021

Bone-regenerating treatments are in high demand due to the ageing population. Increasingly, the orthopaedic biomaterials used to support these treatments are designed to be "immunomodulatory", i.e., guide the body's inflammatory response. They do this by encouraging macrophages - a type of white blood cell that surrounds and kills microorganisms - to adopt new roles based on signals and stimuli in their microenvironment. This approach has proved effective for developing new bone and for encouraging existing bone to accept artificial implants.


Why "Old-Fashioned" Perceptions of Women Are Holding Them Back in the Workplace

Published 24 May, 2021

The challenges that many women face in today's labour market are well documented, from lower employment rates than men to lower rates of pay. Previous studies have considered how the burden of family care, which often falls largely on women's shoulders, has contributed to this imbalance. However, few of these studies have considered why women are the ones to bear that care burden. A new study, published in the KeAi journal China Economic Quarterly International, has used data from China to investigate the impact of the concept of gender roles on women's employment and earnings.


Etching Process Enhances the Extraction of Hydrogen during Water Electrolysis

This webinar will discuss science, techniques and policy in relation to emerging POPs and related fields.


Study Finds That “Vulnerable” Countries Experience Lower COVID-19 Infection and Death Rates Than the Norm

Published 09 April, 2021

During a pandemic like COVID-19, vulnerable countries are traditionally the focus of global attention and concern. However, new research suggests that we need to rebuild our understanding. A study published in KeAi’s Global Health Journal, examined the relationship between state vulnerabilities (measured using the Fragile States Index (FSI) from Fund for Peace) and COVID-19 incidence and death rates in 146 countries. The FSI consists of 12 specific indicators covering cohesion, economy, politics and society. "When using the total FSI score for statistical analysis, we were surprised to find that, overall, the more fragile countries had lower cumulative incidence and fatality rates for COVID-19," explains one of the study’s authors, Yangmu Huang.

Free Webinar: The Impact of Covid-19 Vaccination Scale and Pathogenic Mutations on Disease Transmission

Published 30 March, 2021

Wednesday, 7 April 2021 | 9 a.m. Beijing

It is more than a year since the first cases of COVID-19 were reported. In that time, the virus has caused high mortality and tremendous interruptions to socio-economic activity. There is finally light at the end of the tunnel due to unprecedented progress in SARS-CoV-2 vaccine research and development. Large-scale vaccination programmes have been launched; most in developed countries, some in middle-income countries and a few in developing countries. However, the current approved vaccines can only provide 50-95% protection in preventing symptomatic COVID-19 diseases. This figure is much lower when it comes to reducing SARS-CoV-2 infection. It is of great interest to model and evaluate the impact of different COVID-19 vaccines and vaccination programmes (by country, region, global level and allocation) on both the disease burden and the virus pandemic. This information is urgently needed by health authorities at national and international levels for coordinated, global COVID-19 control efforts.

Latest Research from Emerging Contaminants: Toxicity Comes Standard

Published 19 June, 2020

The coronavirus pandemic has drawn attention to stark health disparities in our communities. Though many factors contribute to high disease burdens for poor people and people of color, older furniture—which is often passed to lower income households—is likely to contain flame retardants that can cause suppressed immune responses, reproductive problems, or cancer. Nearly all furniture made since 2015 does not contain these chemicals. Now a team of researchers has investigated why these chemicals get into households in the first place. The scientists wanted to learn what drives many manufacturers to add flame retardants to their wares, and what causes them to stop.
