Human body-on-chip could overcome current limitations of drug testing

Human body-on-chip could overcome current limitations of drug testing

Two new studies published on 27 January in Nature Biomedical Engineering have demonstrated the incredible potential of rapidly emerging ‘organ-on-chip’ (organ chip) technologies (1, 2). The so-called ‘Interrogator’ system links together various organ chips to create a whole human body-on-chip, which could accelerate the drug discovery process and reduce animal testing. Modern drug development relies…

Decreasing human body temperature in the United States since the industrial revolution

Abstract In the US, the normal, oral temperature of adults is, on average, lower than the canonical 37°C established in the 19th century. We postulated that body temperature has decreased over time. Using measurements from three cohorts--the Union Army Veterans of the Civil War (N = 23,710; measurement years 1860–1940), the National Health and Nutrition…
