A study by researchers at the University of Notre Dame and the University of Missouri at Columbia shows in mice that early administration of a potent compound may increase the window of time in which some stroke patients can receive tPA, a therapeutic that dissolves blood clots.
Tiny tornadoes of supercurrent affect the way superconductors carry a current. But a magnet-controlled “switch” in superconductor configuration provides unprecedented flexibility in managing the location of vortex filaments, altering the properties of the superconductor. A new system discovered by Notre Dame physicist Boldizsár Jankó and collaborators will enable ongoing adjustments, altering the...

Extreme price competition in pharmaceutical industry may put patients at serious health risk, study shows
Amid intense pressure to lower drug prices, policymakers in the pharmaceutical industry have leveraged regulations to increase product competition and lower prices by creating an expedited approval process for generic drugs. But new research shows such competition-inducing regulations may encourage companies to relax quality standards during the manufacturing process.
