New method predicts disease spread more accurately with limited data

It is winter, the typical time for colds. What if you could simulate how the disease may spread? At the Cluster of Excellence Collective Behavior at the University of Konstanz, Julia Klein, a doctoral student in computer science, and colleagues investigated how using strict, rule-based methods can help better estimate the parameters for Markov chains. … Read more

Atomic hydrogen breaks new ground in hydrogen therapy

The overexpression of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (RONS) is closely associated with the onset and progression of diverse chronic diseases, such as cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, and chronic diabetic ulcers. Hydrogen therapy, as an emerging and promising general-purpose therapeutic approach, normally utilizes molecular H2 to selectively eliminate RONS and maintain intracellular redox homeostasis, thereby treating … Read more
