Could this revolutionary jab help destroy the cancer that killed Patrick Swayze? Scientists trial 'ground-breaking' vaccine they hope will protect people from the deadly disease
Scientists are trialling a potentially ground-breaking vaccine that they hope will protect people from developing pancreatic cancer. A team at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) in the US has just given the preventative jab to their first volunteer, a woman with a family history of the disease.
US surpasses 1,000,000 Covid deaths as report finds nearly a third could’ve been averted with vaccines
The US reached the unimaginable milestone of one million Covid-19 deaths on Tuesday, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University. The tragic milestone was reached as a report led by Brown University and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health and Microsoft AI for Health found that at least 318,000 of the deaths could have been prevented had people received the Covid vaccine.

We’ve all been there – rushed to get a delicious burrito for dinner to find more of it ends up in your lap than in your mouth. But never fear, a clever team of engineering students have come up with a solution for that. Inspired by their own experiences with messy lunches, the chemical and biomolecular engineers have created an edible sticky tape.
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden appealed to world leaders at a COVID-19 summit Thursday to reenergize a lagging international commitment to attacking the virus as he led the U.S. in marking the “tragic milestone” of 1 million deaths in America. He ordered flags lowered to half-staff and warned against complacency around the globe.
VASCULAR dementia is a common type of dementia caused by reduced blood flow to the brain. The NHS says it is estimated to affect around 150,000 people in the UK. Johns Hopkins University says confusion, which may increase at night, is associated with vascular dementia. It notes this is known as "sundown syndrome".
Testing for COVID-19 has plummeted across the globe, making it much tougher for scientists to track the course of the pandemic and spot new, worrisome viral mutants as they emerge and spread. Experts say testing has dropped by 70 to 90% worldwide from the first to the second quarter of this year — the opposite of what they say should be happening with new omicron variants on the rise in places such as the United States and South Africa.
The £240m mission is expected to take place in September as new technology is being developed to hurl a half-tonne spacecraft into an asteroid called Dimorphos similar to the Netflix film Don't Look Up NASA is getting ready to smash an asteroid with an aircraft at 23,000 kilometres per hour to prevent it from colliding with Earth.
NASA is set to smash a giant asteroid with an aircraft at 23,000kph in a bid to defend the earth. The £240m mission, dubbed DART after Double Asteroid Redirection Test, is expected to take place in September. Movies like Armageddon and Don’t Look Up have artistically explored the consequences of existential threat.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has published a new estimated global death toll from the coronavirus pandemic, saying that there were close to 15 million pandemic-related deaths between 1 January 2020 and 31 December 2021. This figure is more than double the reported 6.2 million deaths from covid-19, according to data from Johns Hopkins University in Maryland and the WHO’s own figures.
The United States is bracing to reach 1 million COVID-19-related deaths, a figure the nation could hit in the coming weeks. So far, the COVID-19 pandemic has killed 993,744 people in the U.S., with over 11,740 deaths in the past four weeks alone, according to Johns Hopkins University - but some states are deadlier than others.
The coronavirus test positivity rate in San Francisco hit 5% on Friday, according to new city data. The percentage of tests that are coming back positive — a key indicator of pandemic trends — is rising sharply and has passed a level that public health officials consider worrisome.
New data revealed Friday that the COVID-19 positivity rate in San Francisco is now 5%, which experts say is “too high,” according to Johns Hopkins University. This means that 5% of the people taking coronavirus tests at any medical provider in the city have tested positive for coronavirus.

Mice with muscle-wasting disorder injected with stem cells ran twice as far on mini treadmills Scientists have cultivated human muscle stem cells capable of renewing themselves and repairing muscle tissue damage in mice, an advance that may lead to new ways of treating wasting disorders in people. In the research, published in the journal Cell Stem Cell, scientists genetically reprogrammed lab-cultured human skin cells into a more primitive state in which they can develop into almost any type of cell in the body.
The subvariant of Omicron that's more transmissible than BA.1 was responsible for new cases The US is trudging into what could be another COVID-19 surge, with cases rising nationally and in most states after a two-month decline. "We don't know how high that mountain's gonna grow," said Dr. Stuart Campbell Ray, an infectious disease expert at Johns Hopkins University.
