While polymers contribute to the convenience of modern life, they also threaten the environment and life, particularly in oceans, as plastic waste. Polymers decompose very slowly. Through physical impact they reduce in size and degrade into fragments of oxidized polymers. The effect of maritime animals or birds picking up polymer fragments of all sizes is well recognized all over the world. Especially fish are victims of human waste, but also seabirds, such as fulmars which carry plastic waste in their...

Skin-to-skin contact between mother and child provides pain relief, measured with near-infrared spectroscopy, during venepuncture in premature infants.

Infrared technology could be key to minimally invasive screening for an often debilitating and worrying condition, ulcerative colitis. Moreover, the technology could offer a rapid, simpler and cost-effective diagnostic method that precludes the need for surgical biopsies and intrusive testing of the body, according to researchers at Georgia State University.

Prefrontal cortical activity associated with a stop-signal inhibitory task was compared by NIR spectroscopy in patients with methamphetamine-associated psychosis and schizophrenia, and in healthy controls.

Protein Science, the flagship journal of The Protein Society, serves an international forum for publishing original reports on all scientific aspects of protein molecules. The Journal publishes papers by leading scientists from all over the world that report on advances in the understanding of proteins in the broadest sense. Protein Science aims to unify this field by cutting across established disciplinary lines and focusing on “protein-centered” science.
